Websites That Use Points to Pay

In Asia there are some websites where User A offers User B points for providing a service,.  Usually it's like one point.  For example - online teaching.  User A teaches User B for a pre-set term, say 40 minutes.  User B gives User A one point.

At the end of a month User A may have 9 points.  These points are converted into cash on the basis of some standard exchange, like 1 point = US$5, and paid to User A's bank account or Paypal.  

I need to see some Terms & Conditions in English for a site that runs this way.  Do any of you all know of a service like this in the USA, or anywhere in the English-speaking world, where I could get a look at some Terms of Service / Terms of Use?

Thanks!

The closest thing domestically I'd say are the "survey" taking businesses. In exchange for taking surveys, you're awarded points. After earning a specific amount, you can cash in the points.
