    Sperm donor compensation & pay

    Being a sperm donor is a rewarding opportunity, where you get to experience the gratification of making of people’s dreams of having a child come true. Cryos compensates you for your time and effort during the donation process, which can earn you up to $780 a month.


    Along with the reward of helping families, you also earn compensation and receive a free and comprehensive medical evaluation including genetic screening and infectious disease testing.

    How much do you make as a Sperm donor

    The sperm donor compensation schedule is as follows:

    • Per ejaculate - $25 (per visit) + $10 gift card
    • Per tested ejaculate made that is MOT5 or higher (on each successive visit) - $30
    • Per batch release - $25

    Sperm donors will earn $25 per ejaculate/visit at Cryos plus a $10 gift card. The sperm laboratory will then test your specimen. If the sperm quality produced is a MOT5 or higher, you will be compensated an additonal $30 for the first sample on your next visit. In addition to that $25 per ejaculate is added to your bank which is paid out once you close the batch at 10 good ejaculates and it make it through 6 months of quarantine and rethaw you will get an additional $250.

    After sperm donors produce a batch (ten ejaculates), your specimens go into quarantine. After the six-month quarantine period, the sperm donor will be called in for a brief medical examination. When all the test results have been obtained, provided that they are normal, the quarantine is lifted, and the sperm samples are released from quarantine. After the sperm samples are released from quarantine, you will get paid $250 (10 good specimens x $25) which was saved in your bank account.

    Donors are required to pay taxes on the amount earned from Cryos and you will receive a 1099. It is the donors’ responsibility to do so.
