Roblox is an addictive and enjoyable free-to-play “online game platform”. Essentially, that means it acts as a platform for user-generated content creation. Here, players can interact, chat online, and play (or create!) exciting games to play. It features a plethora of user-generated fun games. It thrives due to the exceptional community surrounding the game developed by Roblox Corporations and boasts about 6.61 million users active on a day-to-day basis. Originally released way back in 2006, the game is still relevant with lots of people, especially children, flocking towards it. Part of the charm is its simple, blocky art style, similar to other kinds of games like Minecraft, and the fact that Roblox is free to play invites a lot more market into the platform.
Roblox, as mentioned just prior, is a free-to-play game. Thus, it works on a ‘freemium’ basis, meaning that although the base game is free, there is a currency which can be earned either through the game’s activities or by purchasing it through the in-game store, for exclusive character skins. Robux is the currency for Roblox, with ways to get it through playing or purchasing. Often, players might want to gift their friends Robux to show their affection. As of right now, there is no direct way to gift someone Robux on the platform. However, there are certain methods using which give robux to people.
Roblox is completely free-to-play, meaning there is no part of the game you have to purchase. As such, the developers gain their profits through cosmetic items, which you may use while playing any of Roblox popular games, to flaunt your style in the game. This ensures that while players can enjoy without spending a dime, Roblox Corporations still profits off the money of the paid cosmetics. There are various ways to earn Robux for free, but it’s a premium currency with the primary way of earning Robux in the game. As such, there has been a rise of the fake “Roblox Generators”, which trap young players in their scams and can often cause a risk to your money. So, always be aware and alert while handling Robux, or any online currency, for money phishing scams are rampant.
How To Give Someone Robux In Roblox
Now that we have covered online safety and understanding about roblox, let’s elaborate you about 4 seamless methods to give robux to people. We will all cover them one by one.
Method 1) Purchasing Gift Cards
This is the easiest and ‘official’ way to gift Robux to somebody, as it just requires purchasing a gift card with a certain amount of Robux already on it. See how to do it below
- Step 1: Go to an online store like Amazon (alternatively you can also go to a physical store, but online stores are much more convenient.
- Step 2: Go to their search bar and search for Roblox Gift cards on Amazon. A lot of options should show up.
- Step 3: Select the gift card of your choice and then purchase it. After the purchase is verified, the code should appear in your email (registered with the account on Amazon or the other stores).
- Step 4: Send the code to your friend.
This is the simplest technique to send someone Robux on Roblox, but it requires a purchase. Often times though, players want to donate their existing Robux to their friends, which is not directly possible on Roblox. However, there are some ways to still do this, as demonstrated in the other methods.
Method 2) Using Donations
The most popular and easy method of donating Robux to friends, it requires your friend to create a new clothing item for the customisation of avatars and then you can buy it to send that Robux to your friend. This is the guide to how to do that.
- Step 1: Tell your friend, or get your friend’s account, and create a donation clothing item for the game to sell.
- Step 2: After the item is complete, set up its price to the amount of Robux you are donating. After that, it needs to be uploaded to the catalogue.
- Step 3: Now, log into your account and go to the Avatar Shop.
- Step 4: In the Avatar Shop, go and purchase your friend’s item. After these steps, the Robux will get transferred to the friend’s account.
Things To Note-
- Your friend only receives 70% of the price of their Game Pass, as the rest is gone as a ‘Market Tax’. So, to send someone 200 Robux you need to set the Game Pass price to around 286 Robux.
- This method requires your friend to have joined the Builder’s Club, which is accessed by getting the Premium Membership – which costs 4.99 USD (412.8 INR) per month, meaning your friend has to have the membership, or to spend some money to buy it.
Method 3) Making a Game Pass (PC only)
This is another easy and reliable method of gifting Robux which players use very often, involving the creation of a Game Pass. It is advantageous over Method 2 as it does not require the Builder’s Club fee.
- Step 1: Tell your friend to go and make a Game Pass or do so by taking their account. The steps are given below. If they already have a Game Pass, skip to Step 6.
- Step 2: Log into the friend’s account, go to the top bar and select the “Create” option.
- Step 3: Select the “Create Game Pass” option on the screen.
- Step 4: Follow the prompts shown on the screen. It will tell you to set the name, an optional description and the icon.
- Step 5: After previewing the new Game Pass, click on “Verify Upload”. Your Game Pass will get created.
- Step 6: Now, select the “Configure” option on the dropdown box after clicking on the gear icon of the Game Pass.
- Step 7: Hit the “Sales” option.
- Step 8: Toggle on the “Item of Sale” option, then specify the price and then save the settings.
- Step 9: Now that your friend’s Game Pass is up for sale, you can purchase it and give them the Robux.
Things To Note-
- Same as in the above method, your friend only receives 70% of the price of their Game Pass, as the rest is gone as a ‘Market Tax’.
- Also, this is not an instant transaction as it may take up to 3 days for the Robux to transfer to your friend’s Roblox account.
Method 4) Creating a Group
This is an alternate method of how to give Robux to people, involving the creation of Groups in Robux. By donating Robux in a group, you give it to any person or friend of yours who is in the same group. Here is how it works.
- Step 1: Create a group on Roblox. If you already have a group with your friends, skip to step 5.
- Step 2: Start out by selecting the menu option and then proceeding to the “Create Group” selection.
- Step 3: Pay 100 robux to form a group
- Step 4: Invite your friends to join the newly created group.
- Step 5: After the group has been completed, click on the group under the menu on the left side, and select the “Create New Experience” option.
- Step 6: Here you have to create a new Game Pass or a clothing item. You can do either by following Methods 1 and 2 given above.
- Step 7: Now buy the group item. As it is an item of a group, the funding will be split among the members of said group instead of your account.
- Step 8: Then go and select the top right three dots (…) button under groups, and select “Configure Group”.
- Step 9: Click on the “Revenue” option, then “One Time Payments”, followed by “Add Layout Recipients.
- Step 10: Enter the amount of Robux and then your friend’s username. Confirm on “Distribute” to transfer the amount quickly with no delay.
Things To Note-
- This is the only method (aside from gift cards) that can work on a mobile device as well.
- This is the only method in which you can send Robux to multiple people very quickly.
