CPA is an advertising model where publishers are get paid for an action that is taken as a direct result of their marketing efforts. That might be a form signup or free trial account opening or submitting user details or some sort of information through lead capture pages.
Also known as pay for performance advertising, it is a form of advertising in which the purchaser pays only when there are measurable results.

A CPA Network is the conduit between the advertiser and another publisher.

An affiliate network is almost similar to CPA network, the only difference is sometimes it also allows CPM, CPC payout models. It acts as an intermediary between publishers (affiliates) and merchants(advertisers). It allows website publishers, email publishers, bloggers, influencers to more easily find and participate in advertiser affiliate programs which are suitable for their website (and thus generate income from those programs).

In general, companies use affiliate networks if they do not have the available resources to create a significant outbound sales effort, if they do not have a substantial advertising presence or if they want to tap into groups of potential customers in an unrelated industry. Affiliate networks can allow a business to focus on its core competencies rather than on obtaining the contact information of interested parties.

To create your own CPA Network or Affiliate Network you need a platform to manage advertisers, affiliates, campaigns & reports.
