What is Roblox: How to Make Money with it

Roblox is an online gaming platform and game creation tool. It allows users to create and play games made by others in the ecosystem.

The platform was used by more than half of the children under 16 years old in the United States, and had over 164,000,000 monthly active users as of August 2020

After signing up, you can play any number of games you want. There is currently more than 50,000,000 games in its library.

Roblox Studio is the platform's game-development tool. Users can also create their avatars. Robux, the digital currency on the platform, allows users to personalize their avatars. If short on cash, users can participate in special events to win Robux rewards.

Roblox appeals to a young audience, its core demographic is 9-15 years old. Many words have been censored to make Roblox child-friendly.

Roblox and its games can be accessed on Roblox's website and mobile devices, (available via Android and iOS), Oculus Rift, and Xbox.

Currency and items

Roblox lets players create, buy, and sell virtual items that can be used to personalize their avatar. Clothes are available for purchase by anyone. However, only Premium members can sell them.

Roblox administrators are the only ones who can sell accessories, body pieces, and packages. Only a few Roblox Corporation employees can publish virtual hats. Many people design items full-time. The highest-earning creators make over $100,000 per year from item sales. Only Roblox Premium members can trade or sell items with limited edition status.

How can you make money on Roblox?

Roblox does not pay developers directly to make games. Instead, developers are paid when players make virtual purchases in their games. Robux is a currency that allows players to purchase items in the game. Developers can then exchange this currency for real money via the game platform. 

Robux is a currency that allows players to purchase various items. It can be obtained from real currency or from other players who produce and sell Roblox content.

Gaming has proven to be a very lucrative industry for teens, not only for those who create them but also for those who enjoy playing them.

Roblox sometimes participates in film promotions, such as the ones that were held to promote Aquaman and Wonder Woman 1984. The platform hosted its inaugural virtual concert in 2020. This was compared by Rolling Stone with Travis Scott's Fortnite virtual concert. During which Lil Nas X performed "Holiday" for an audience of Roblox users, Travis Scott was also present. Zara Larsson, a Swedish singer, performed songs at a virtual party celebrating her new album Poster Girl (Summer Edition) in 2021. Twenty One Pilots performed a virtual concert on September 17, 2021. As part of Chipotle's Halloween Boorito promotion, the platform partnered up with Chipotle Mexican Grill in October 2021 to give away $1 million worth of burritos to the first 30,000 customers each day.

Just how do you make money on Roblox?

Roblox offers many ways to make money. We'll show you how. Please note it's possible to make lots of money but these cases are very rare. Roblox is hard work and dedication required to make big money.

Do you want to learn how Roblox can help you generate real world cash? Let's get started.

Register for a DevEx account
To convert the virtual currency received into dollars or cents, you need to sign up for a Developer Exchange Account. DevEx allows creators to cash out their Robux at a fixed rate. Currenty, you can get $350 USD for 100,000 Robux. To cash out on Roblox, you must also meet these requirements:

  • Get a Roblox Premium Subscription
  • You must have at least 100,000 Robux earned in your account
  • Verified email address
  • You must have a DevEx portal account
  • At least 13 years old
  • Roblox's Terms of Use are respected and accepted by all community members.

Roblox Premium subscriptions are available in three levels, each with its own price and benefits.

  • Premium 450 is $4.99 per Month and earns you 450 Robux each month
  • Premium 1000 is $9.99 per Month and earns you 1,000 Robux each month
  • Premium 2200 is $19.99 per month and earns 2,200 Robux every month

Robux are given out on a monthly basis. Roblox Premium subscribers give you access to exclusive discounts and products, 10 percent more Robux when the currency is purchased with real money, as well as the ability to trade Robux. As you will soon discover, trading items is an important part of generating Robux.

You can verify your email address by going to the Settings menu of the Roblox website. Even if you don't plan on cashing in your Robux, it's a smart idea to verify your email address. This helps to protect your account and allows you to reset your password if you are locked out.

Game Access Charge

Roblox games can be played for free and do not require payment. You can charge people for access to your game, which costs between 25 and 1,000 Robux. However, if you wish to make some money. People are not buying your user-created games; they are paying for access. Scammers are likely to try to sell you a game (more details later).

You should create video and image promotional videos to show potential customers what your game is about. Potential players won't buy your game if they can't play it in action.

Make Game Passes

Game passes often unlock features that are not available in the game. For example, a special suit that allows a character to fly. Passes that double experience points or double the earned gold of players or allow players to carry extra items or pets are more common. It all depends on what type of game you have created.

Your game passes should not be too complicated. Your game should not give players too much power or unfair advantage over those who can or won't buy them. This will make your game "pay to lose."


Perishables can be single-use items that are intended to be used repeatedly. These items are very popular, regardless of whether they contain extra gold, rocket fuel or ammo. Roblox's demographic consists mainly of teenagers and young children. If you want to charge Robux for perishable items, ensure that they are also available without purchase. This way players can still participate in competitive showdowns even though they have to grind for the item.

Fashion Clothing

Roblox games allow you to personalize your character by wearing cool clothes, depending on what title you choose. This is another topic. You can still download templates for clothing and create your own designs. The gear can then be sold (typically between 5 and 100 Robux).

Roblox's most difficult aspect is the drive to create more unique clothing than the competition. To create digital threads, I recommend Photoshop or GIMP as an image-editing software.

Trade hard-to-find items

Roblox allows users to trade Limited or Unique items. What is the difference between them? Roblox once sold a limited item, but it is no longer available for sale. It was only available during a certain time period. Roblox sold a limited number of unique items once, but they were not available in large quantities. For huge amounts of Robux, you could trade a rare hat you have bought to another Roblox user.
