How to Send Robux to a Friend

Robux is the money that runs the Roblox world. It lets you buy outfits, looks, games, and so much more. Earning it in the game, though possible, can be a bit tough. Buying it using real-world money might be out of the question to some.

This demand makes it a great gift to other players. After all, just like in the real world, Roblox players can always do with some money and helping out a friend is always a good idea.

You Can’t Send or ‘Wire’ Robux Straight to Your Friend

Roblox doesn’t have a banking feature that let’s you send money straight to other players. This is in good faith since many game microtransaction systems with direct sending have always been misused.

You will need to leverage other transaction tools in the game to transfer the money. These include:

  • Using gift cards – easiest for people with real-world money
  • Giving it out through a group – easiest if you have a lot of Robux in your account
  • Giving donations
  • Creating a Game Pass

Using Gift Cards

Gift cards are the official way to send Robux or any gift to a friend. They let you get the most out of your money since you will not lose the 30% you would lose if you transfer Robux from within the game.

The only problem is it works if you want to use real-world money to purchase the gift card as you can’t use Robux for this. Check the other options if you want to spend Robux.

  • Follow this link to the Roblox Gift Cards Shop and click on ‘Shop Gift Cards

  • Enter your friend’s name/nickname and your name, too then proceed by clicking ‘Pick a Gift Card’

  • Next, you will have to decide the Currency (choose your native currency, e.g. USD if you are in the US) and also decide whether you want a physical gift card or a digital gift card

  • Digital gift cards are faster as they can be delivered on an exact date to the recipients email. Physical gift cards are great for the sedimental type who want something they can hold onto even after using. They will have to wait longer for the postal service to deliver.

I went with digital gift card. They’re marginally cheaper since there is no handling fee and delivery is better guaranteed. Next, you will have to design your card. You can choose a template from Featured designs or select a design by occasion. Top occasions include:

  • Characters and Experiences
  • Congrats
  • Birthdays
  • Thankyou
  • Seasonal

Once you fill in the information and click ‘Add to Cart’ you will be taken to a page with the gift card details and count. If Roblox has a free bonus item on offer, you will also get it. You can let the Free Bonus Item go to the gift card’s recipient or change the recipient so that it goes to your account.

Click checkout to finish the process. This will take you to the payment page. If you already have a payment option added to your Roblox account, things will be more seamless. If you don’t you will have to choose between Credit/Debit card payment or Paypal and fill the respective form accordingly to pay for the order.

Purchasing Roblox Gift Cards At Other Platforms

If you don’t have a Roblox account and don’t care for one (perhaps you just want to buy a gift for a player or kid who loves the game) you can get the gift cards from third party sellers either online or offline.

Online stores that sell Roblox gift cards are:

  • Amazon (for only Robux, can’t be used for premium subscriptions)
  • Target
  • GameStop
  • Walmart

Some physical stores that sell Roblox gift cards include:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Walgreens
  • Kroger
  • CVS
  • BestBuy
  • 7 Eleven
  • Dollar General
  • Family Dollar
  • SafeWays
  • GameStop
  • Albertsons

Giving Out Robux Via a Group

This is the easiest way to give Robux to a friend or friends if your player account has accumulated tons of Robux that you want to share. It is simple because your player friend doesn’t have to do much on their side compared to other options like building game passes or donation items.

How to Give Robux Via Donations Items

Roblox lets you sell items like pants, t-shirts and shirts – with t-shirts being the easiest to make. It follows that asking your friend to create a t-shirt you can buy is a good way to transfer Robux from your account to theirs.

The only catch is you will lose 30% of the transaction value since Roblox takes this as a marketplace’ tax’ cut. Despite this, this workaround and others like Gamepasses and Group giveaways are great if you have tons of Robux to spend and don’t want to use real-world money to buy gift cards.

Using Donation T-Shirts

We recently did a piece on how to add Robux to a group using T-shirts. This concept works the same only that the Robux recipient will be the one to create the T-shirt.

ProTip: Your friend needs a Builder’s Club membership or Premium Membership subscription

Have them head over to the Create suit by clicking the create button on Roblox main menu. The locaiton varies depending on the platform they’re using.

ProTip: If it is your first time, you will be prompted to install the Roblox create studio. Download and install it to proceed

Otherwise, proceed with the creation procedure in the Creation page that loads after clicking on ‘Create’

After this, the procedure will be the same as what we did when adding a sellable T-shirt to Roblox groups. You can check out the guide here:

Once your friend finishes creating the T-Shirt, go to their profile and store to find it and buy it.

Bottom Line

Gift cards are the great way to go if you don’t have a Roblox account but want to gift your friend who loves the game. If you are a top-tier player with a lot of Robux, then creating a group, adding Robux to it, and inviting your friends to join before rewarding them is the simplest way to share your Roblox fortune with your loved ones.
