Donate Plasma for Cash

The United States have been hit by recession some five years ago but Americans always have ways to make both ends meet despite the hard times. Rodric Hurdle-Bradford wrote in his article “How Far Would You Go to Get Out of Debt? Blood, Sperm, Garbage?” the 4 clever options that Americans have been resorting to to earn extra income. And one of those options, my friends, is SELLING PLASMA.

This may not sound new to everyone anymore. From students to working professionals to single parents ā€“ the plasma donation industry has been the saving lifeline to enable financially struggling citizens pay the dues. But how? Simple. Plasma centers pay as low as $20 for first time donors and around $40-$60 when you donate again.

No degree or work overtimes needed ā€“ all you gotta do is go to a local plasma center near your place, be healthy enough to be an eligible donor and roll up those sleeves. The whole plasma donation process is longer than blood donation. If you’re a first time blood donor, you may only spend an hour and this already includes filling up forms, screening and the actual blood donation. But if you’re a first time plasma donor, the whole process may take 3 hours, but subsequent donations may only take 90 minutes.

Another question you might ask is: ā€œI’ve been told that plasma donation can save lives, but how exactly am I doing that?ā€
Good question, buddy! Plasma donation can let you save lives in ways you can never see. Unlike in blood donation where your fluid is used directly for transfusions, collected plasma from plasma centers are processed into life-saving therapies.

Plasma is a component of blood which is rich in proteins and antibodies such as immunoglobulins, clotting factors, fibrinogen and albumin. Therefore, it is used to produce therapies that treat life-threatening chronic, rare and often genetic diseases such as primary immunodeficiencies, hemophilia and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, and neurological and autoimmune disorders.

Plasma Donation is not that complicated, right? What are you waiting for? If you are healthy enough to donate and have no fear of needles, I encourage you to be a plasma donor NOW! Lots of sick people around the world need plasma donations to provide themselves with the therapies they need. When you donate plasma, you don’t only give these people a chance to live, you can also earn money from it. But please don’t make the monetary incentive your sole reason why you donate. Let me get this clear: Centers pay you for your time and effort, not for your donated fluid.

You can find plasma centers in your place through this DIRECTORY.

    • @Sathleesh You can sell your plasma in Plasma centers such as BioLife, Talecris, Biomat USA, Octapharma and CSL

  10. Hello, I am having trouble locating a center where I can be paid for plasma donation. I have called a couple of locations listed on directories and they say they don’t pay. I live in Yuba City, CA–are there any locations near the area that will pay? Thank you.

  11. I would like to know if there are Plasma center locations in NYC, that will do Plasma for cash? Most preferably Brooklyn, or Manhattan… Queens is acceptable too…

    • @Jennifer No. American Red Cross is a non-profit organization and they only encourage voluntary donors to donate plasma. Selling plasma is a different thing. If you want to get paid, you need to go in popular plasma banks owned by pharmaceutical companies such as Biomat USA, Talecris, CSL, etc.

  12. What series of test do you have to take or pass to donate plasma?

  13. I had been donating plasma off and on for years. I made the mistake of mentioning how I am gay and staff overheard me. I was pulled into a room and asked point-blank if I was gay. I said yes, but I am a virgin. (I really am a virgin!) I explained how I am not even involved in the gay community and I abstain from any kind of sex, including with women because of religious reasons (this is the truth). I was told that I had to be deferred because they would never know if I was telling the truth or not. It was traumatizing! I know one of the questions they ask men before they donate is they’ve ever had sex with a man since 1977. I have never! And I won’t! I just happen to have feelings that I don’t necessarily need to act upon! Not everyone who is gay is or has been sexually active. I don’t assume that all heterosexuals have had sex (I know plenty that haven’t). What do I do now? I feel like I’ve been treated unfairly. I would like to continue to donate plasma. Am I banned from other plasma centers as well? What do I do?

    • @Sam You can still make a difference by becoming a blood bank volunteer should these banks continue to ban homosexuals from donating.

  14. I would like to get the names of places that compensate you for your blood or plasma. I cant find one near me in florida.

  19. I regularly donated plasma a few years back. I was permanently differed due to one test coming back as inconclusive for hep B. I had myself tested at my regular doctor and it was negative. Is there anyway that I can get my name removed from the permanently differed list?

    • @Cassie,

      Hi there. Just try to go back to the blood center that deferred you from giving blood and show to them the result that you are hepa B negative. If you are truly healthy and the blood center’s previous finding about your hepa B was inaccurate, then you have the right to donate blood.

      Thank you for your desire to donate plasma and help save lives. šŸ™‚

    • @Ivan,

      Hi there, Congratulations you are a type O! That means you are a universal donor! Your type is what every blood bank needs because your blood can be transfused to any person, regardless of their blood type. You can find list of blood banks here – Pls see the state or city where you live and it will provide a list of blood and plasma centers, as well as their contact numbers and address.

      Hope that helps! šŸ™‚
