Actually, you can compare it to traditional affiliate programs, which run on CPA or CPS. On CPA/CPS programs the pixel fires after a sale is made. With App Install campaigns, also known as CPI (cost per install), the pixel fires after the app is installed and opened. On CPI we focus on driving new user acquisition and are paid fixed fee per unique install.
