EPC stands for average earnings per click. For example, if
you send 100 visitors to a merchant's site and you generate $30 in commission, the EPC would be 30 cents. You are generating
an average of 30 cents in revenue for every person you send to that merchant's website.
The EPC is sometimes shown for each creative, which demonstrates
which creatives (ads) are performing the best.
