What are the online advertising pricing models?

In affiliate marketing, CPS and CPA are the most common pricing models. CPS means cost-per-sale, or pay-per-sale, is a pricing model that an affiliate is paid on a % of the sale amount generated by an advertisement. Base commission is the default rate merchant rewards the affiliate based on the amount of sales generated.
