Google Affiliate Network!

AdWords announced The Retirement of the Pay-Per-Action beta because of the new Google Affiliate Network:

“The Google Affiliate Network, previously known as DoubleClick Performics Affiliate, has been in operation since 1998. Through the network, advertisers can open their ads to all publishers in the network, or select specific publishers that match their criteria. You can set a CPA for your entire campaign or establish custom payment schedules for specific publishers — such as a higher CPA for a particularly optimal placement. The Google Affiliate Network is currently a separate product from AdWords and AdSense. As with AdSense, publishers must apply and be accepted into the network.”

Google’s Affiliate Network merges two services: DoubleClick’s Performics Affiliate network and Google’s Pay Per Action network.

A few opinions that have been posted about this change:
