AnswerCents.com is a community-based question-and-answer (Q&A) website that pays participants, encourages high quality answers, and integrates charitable donating. Users can ask questions for free or offer incentives (money) to encourage the community to provide more insightful feedback. These incentives are proportionally divided between the top three respondents and up to 198 supporting voters. A detailed table with examples of this division can be found in the photo gallery above. We are confident that by rewarding a large number of users per question, the community can be actively engaged and high quality responses can be achieved consistently.
We have integrated charitable donating into the website to give a direct medium for users to further support those in need. Users can opt to donate their potential earnings when responding to paid questions and while exchanging site points for real-world currency. A live counter of charitable funds raised is showcased on the site’s header.
