Did you just buy Robux? However, you probably find that it does not show up after a long time. Is there something wrong with it? So, knowing how much time it takes for Robux to show up is important so that if it does not appear for a long time, there may be something wrong.
Time That It Takes for Robux to Show Up
Actually, there is no information about the time that it takes for Robux to show up after you buy it. However, users will usually get the Robux in their account immediately after buying it. It does not only apply to Robux, but also to other items. After you buy items, then it will show up in your account immediately.
If you have bought Robux, but then it does not appear for a long time, then there may be something wrong.
Time That It Takes for Pending Robux to Appear
If you have bought Robux, but then your Robux does not show up in your account, it may be pending sales. What is it? It is an anti-abuse where Roblox will postpone transactions for up to 30 days depending on the amount of the transaction. Roblox has this feature for protecting users from some abuses like scams.
So, how much time does it take to wait for pending sales? The period of pending sales has changed several times. Initially, users had to wait around 3 days. Then, it changed where users had to wait around 3 to 7 days. How about now? Now, users have to wait up to 30 days.
This extended waiting period is not without reason. Roblox extends the waiting period to extend protection to its users. If they only set 3 days for the waiting period, it is a very short time for Roblox to be able to catch the potential abuse. However, by applying the waiting period up to 30 days, Roblox has a long timeframe to be able to catch the potential abuse.
In the Roblox Devforum, some users shared their experiences about pending robux. Some users said that they received their pending Robux within a week. A user said that it usually takes a week for him, but it depends on the amount of robux pending which may be able to take longer. This user bought the Violet Valk using the 40% back method and the 20k pending took almost a month.
So, we can conclude that it can take around several days to a month. However, if you are curious about your Robux that you have paid for but have not shown up yet, you are able to contact Roblox Support.
However, before you contact Roblox support, it is better for you to check several things to make sure that it is not your fault.
- You have to make sure that you buy Robux in your account or for your account. Before you buy Robux on the Roblox platform, make sure that you log in by using the correct information. It is because there is a possibility where your device is used by other family members and they also play Roblox and they did not log out. If this is the case, the possibility is that you buy Robux for your family member’s account. Or, you probably enter the wrong login information. So, make sure everything is right.
- You need to check the history of your transaction in your Roblox account. It is because you probably have bought something in Roblox and you forgot it. Or, because you did not log out from your Roblox account, there is a family member who used your device and played Roblox there without logging in to their account and they bought an item there which was in your account. So, checking the transaction history is important.
