An affiliate network helps publishers to monetize their inventory by providing a variety of options, as well as all necessary tools for running campaigns (tracking links, creatives etc.). For advertisers, affiliate network services and benefits include payment processing, ad tracking technology, ad campaign reporting tools, as well as access to a vast database of publishers. Affiliate networks work on a CPA (Cost per Action) based model which means that they can effectively deliver a 100% fill rate for publishers.  Some publishers, known as ‘affiliates or ‘media buyers’ will create or buy traffic using advertising specifically to promote campaigns from a network (rather than just to monetize existing inventory).

Advertisers can use technologies such as web bugs to verify if an impression is actually delivered.[59][60]:59
