What my understanding on PPC and Pay for Performance is:

PPC - Pay Per Click.
Pay for Performance - You pay only when a client order product or service.

Am I right?

But, On Yahoo! Product Submit Center
(http://productsubmit.adcentral.yahoo.com/sspi/us/index2)
It says:

Pay for Performance -Inclusion in Yahoo! Product Search and buyer’s guide pages is based on a cost-per-click price that varies by product category. You pay only for leads directly to your site.

How come a 'cost-per-click' can be said as 'Pay fo Performance'? It is confused, or Yahoo try to fool us?

It's all in the way they define language.

Often, Overture uses the term 'lead' to mean a click. Not my definition of a lead, but it's often theirs.

Pay for Performance in the Adwords/Overture/yahoo scheme of things is exactly same as PPC (Pay Per Click)

Just an interesting way of saying it (imo)
