If you are working with the CPS campaign and your advertiser is sending you a sale amount in the postback under sale_amount parameter and you need to define the revenue and payout in %.


so the calculation is done like this:


let's say conversion is recorded with sale amount from Advertiser is $10


and, 


you have set


Revenue = 60% ,

Payout = 40%

(if you own getting your whole commission in sale_amount then you can set revenue as 100%)


so conversion sale_amount=10


Revenue = 60 % of sale_amount = 60 % of 10 = $6


Payout = 40% of sale_amount = 40 % of 10 = $4


so for conversion whose sale amount is $10 then,

Revenue = $6
Payout= $4


So you can vary revenue % based on what you are getting sale_amount and manage payout % of the publisher.
