As a developer, it is impossible to pay out contractors immediately now due to the group payout limitations. I am one of many developers who use groups to payout contractors and usually do one-off commissions or payments. The user has 0 reasons to remain in my group, I just want to pay them and move on.
The payouts are extremely annoying and provide absolutely terrible UX with a message of “User is new to group and not yet eligible for payouts. Please try again later.”
What am I supposed to do with this information? Am I supposed to tell my contractor “haha sorry you have to wait until Roblox unlocks funds to be payable to you haha” No, this is not acceptable. Most recently I commissioned some art and went to go pay the artists, but I was hit with this. I then have to explain to the artist that Roblox is preventing me from paying them out and somehow make this seem like I’m not scamming them. The payout limitation is really stupid and needs to be re-evaluated for developers who religiously contract out work for one-off commissions.
