Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I would like to include an expert Q and A system into my site that works like stackoverflow but also gives the user the option to promise money for the answer.

What exactly does promising money entail in your mind as a feature? I "promise" you ten bucks if you respond to this comment. See? Now any Q&A system can handle your request. – Su' Mar 4 '12 at 11:39
@Su' - every +1 is funded from upvoter financial account, -1 - from answerer, accept - from asker. Just idea of real interst instead of child toys with "leagues" – Lazy Badger Mar 4 '12 at 17:38
@LazyBadger that actually sounds like an interesting idea. – John Birdie Mar 6 '12 at 13:04
FYI, there are already a few sites like this. Most of these are very large sites using a custom developed web application. The cheapest solution would be modify an open source Q&A platform to integrate payment processing into it. You'd need web development experience (or hire a developer) + a merchant account and subscription to a payment gateway. – Lèse majesté Apr 3 '12 at 6:59

OSQA is an excellent Q&A that you may consider. I'm not sure wheather it has bulit-in capability to 'pay for answers'. However since it based on Django framework, you can extend and add features if you are familiar with Django.

I see no evidence of a "payment for answers" feature(whatever that might mean, as per my comment above). Can you expand on this suggestion? – Su' Mar 4 '12 at 11:42
The "payment for answer" part is something he'll have to implement. And my guess is that he wanted to implement something close to this: learnable.com – alfasin Mar 4 '12 at 18:18
actually I am looking for a system like justanswer.com (just simpler) – John Birdie Mar 6 '12 at 13:10
