Compensation for kidneys or other organs would almost certainly effect poorer citizens more adversely than richer citizens. Poorer citizens would need money more and only richer ones could pay the fee. I don't think it's an ethical situation we should put ourselves in. There may be better ways to engage people into the lists, but money likely wouldn't end well. I think some countries now have a donor registry by default and you have to specifically opt out. That only comes into play if you die. I'm totally on board with that. The opt in scenario we have now doesn't even remotely cover need. The organs of the dead alone would likely cover a huge portion of the need.
