    Yahoo answer is to -Answer your questions from the expert without charging even a single paise from you. This is not a professional site thus no money should be given to the yahoo answer member either to the experts, who has log in for the same or the other as it is for their own intrest.

  • Nope you don't get paid. The more points you earn, the better are your prospects for asking free questions with getting points deducted.

    You do not get paid. However answers are worth points which allow you to grow in levels. The higher your level the more questions you can answer and the more questions you can ask. To know more about where you stand click on "My Q&A" in the upper right hand side of your window. :)

    I wish! No, the points are just a way to keep us wanting to answer more questions and help others out. The more points you gain, the higher levels you attain and from those, you get benefits(asking more ?s a day, answering more ?s a day,ect)

    no. you'll not get paid just by answering, but you'll need points for every question that you ask.
