What does 'Events' mean in reports?
At the right side of your Campaign Summary report you can see a column called ‘Events’. This shows you how many sales you have generated. The more sales you have, the better is your traffic quality.
Your affiliate manager uses this information – along with some other parameters – to check quality and profitability of the traffic. You can help him by checking this column continuously and optimize your traffic. In SubAffiliate Summary report you can even check which Sub IDs generated these events/sales and scale them further while downscaling the other ones.
