EPC stands for Earnings Per Click.
EPC is an important metric used to measure performance. The EPC for an offer can be determined using a very simplistic calculation:
Your Earnings Per Click (EPC) is your earnings divided by the number of clicks your ad received.
earnings ÷ clicks = ePc
Let’s say, this week, you get 1,000 clicks on an offer, and out of that, you get $12 in commissions. You would have an ePc of $0.012 at the end of the week for that offer.
So based on the equation above:
$12 ÷ 1000 = $0.012
Be careful, though! Many networks have been known to display EPC information in a misleading manner since they provide the amount generated for 100 clicks instead of just one.
This method of display and reporting can artificially inflate the affiliate’s EPC while, in reality, the affiliate may be earning less. That is why it is crucial to take into account additional metrics other than simply relying on an offer’s EPC to assess the quality of an offer.
