A while ago, the players in my game’s discord group have started to report problems related to buying developer products. They are saying it takes their money, even though it displays an error message when trying to purchase stuff:
Even though the game doesn’t register the purchase at all, the robux is still taken from their accounts, and it can be found in the trade tab:
I have confirmed this myself in several other games (Jailbreak, UD Westover), and it happened in 100% of the situations. In all cases, the game’s side never registered any of the failed purchases (didn’t award the promised product), even though the robux was still taken.
Edit: I’ve changed it to ROBLOXCRITICAL as suggested by some people.
Edit (2): I’ve checked if it’s still happening, and it seems to be fixed (confirmed by multiple people).
Are you definite the R$ is still taken from their accounts? Messages appear in the transaction tab regardless of if a transaction worked or not. When this happened in the past, R$ was not taken from accounts.
Yes. When i tested this I had 25 robux removed from my account
Edit on this: The transaction DOES show up in my trades up. But ingame no gems were added onto my account. And my balance did go down 25 robux.
So yes can 100% confirm this is a ongoing issue.
But unsure if its for anyone else
Developer products should be temporary disabled just to reduce the grief. People are contacting us as developers about getting charged on failed purchases, and we are unable to do anything but disable our Dev-products while telling those affected that they just have to wait to see if Roblox issues a refund on all those errors sometime in the future.
