Human Microbs is a South African biotech company that is dedicated to improving gut health. By collecting fecal matter from donors, they are able to create supplements that are packed with healthy bacteria. These supplements can help improve digestion, boost the immune system, and even reduce the risk of certain diseases.
If you’re accepted as a donor, you’ll be paid R9000 for each donation. You’ll need to provide a fresh stool sample every two weeks, and you’ll need to follow certain dietary guidelines to ensure that your microbiome remains healthy.
To be eligible for the Human Microbs Get Paid to Poop programme in South Africa, you must meet certain requirements. Here is what you need to know:
You must be in good health to participate in this programme. This means that you should not have any chronic illnesses or conditions that could affect the quality of your stool. You will be required to undergo a medical examination to determine your eligibility.
To participate in the programme, you must have a healthy stool. This means that your stool should be formed and have a normal consistency. If you have frequent diarrhoea or constipation, you may not be eligible to participate.
Anywhere in the world with access to dry ice. Good thing we have dry ice in South Africa!
To participate in the programme, you must be willing to commit to the study for a certain period of time. This may involve collecting and submitting stool samples on a regular basis, as well as attending follow-up appointments.

How they collect it
Most recipients will probably be ordering stool via dry ice shipping. The costs of which will be covered by them.
Donors are prepaid for everything. We receive the order and payment from the recipient, then pass it on to the donor, the donor then prepares it and ships it out.
By default, we also keep donors completely anonymous from recipients, in order to maintain your privacy.
