You Can Now Test Purchases in ROBLOX Studio Without Spending ROBUX!

At ROBLOX, we strive to ensure that your developing experience is as robust and as convenient as possible. If you’re an up-and-coming game developer, one of the core features we offer is an ability to sell purchasable items so that you can be rewarded for all of your hard work with real-world currency. When someone buys an item in your game, you can receive the profits as part of our Developer Exchange program!

We often hear from our developers that they would like a more user-friendly way to test in-game purchases. We’re more than happy to oblige. From now on, you will no longer be required to spend your own ROBUX when testing in-game purchases in Studio!
