What Is Cost Per Acquisition (CPA)?

CPA stands for Cost Per Acquisition and is a financial metric used by marketers to track and measure the aggregate cost of a user taking an action that leads to a conversion.

CPA is an essential metric to track and measure in order to understand how much new customers are costing you and whether your advertising strategy requires optimization.

How Is CPA Calculated?

It is possible to calculate cost per acquisition using a variety of complex formulas, but in general, the following is the most common approach:

CPA = Total marketing spend divided by the total number of acquisitions.

Imagine that you run a Tiktok campaign for 10 days with an advertising budget of $1000 to promote your dropshipping store.

Your campaign ends up bringing you 25 sales, giving you a CPA of:

CPA = $1000 / 25 = $40
