Incoming Adjustment to 'Pending Sales' Waiting Period

For my 140 robux I got from a person buying a gamepass from one of my abandoned games it took an entire week and that’s just plain stupid at this point, I want it so if there are going to be very large robux things it can take maybe 3 days, but only 140 robux for 7 days is idiotic at this point.

I understand that this is for the safety of our earnings and an addition to the game in order to improve the safety of the platform however, I believe 3 - 7 days is quite a lot, this would especially damage smaller developers & groups. I believe the time should be shortened but not drastically.

In my opinion, it’s hard to believe they’re extending the waiting period to seven days. This is going to make it a lot more difficult to pay and be paid through t-shirt. I don’t like this update at all.

7 Weeks! That’s crazy, I thought 3 days was harsh nevermind a week. It’s hard as a small developer, when paying other people at the same time. I don’t really approve of this update to be honest.

It’s not like moderation will actually work either way, since everything still keeps getting through.

Ever since I started playing ROBLOX I haven’t seen any security issues with the god damn waiting time.

Since this update, I’ve been seeing numerous accounts getting falsely deleted/terminated for participating in the buying or selling of items, robux, or accounts in exchange for real world currency. This has happened to my friend who I can verify has not done that, and has had a clean history on roblox. Browsing Twitter I’m seeing it everywhere. Now some of these may be justified, but most have been falsely terminated.

My clothing group has maybe 100 robux in group funds, and every time, I have to wait at least 1 week for the funds to come through. I really don’t see how this will help, and an alternate solution would be to add an account pin every time a player tries to buy something, an account pin when transferring robux, etc. Was this update really necessary?

I just thought to share my opinion, thanks.

Why, just why.
It was already hard enough to pay devs because of the 3 DAY pending but know you are making it 7 days???, The founder of rusted studio and I had to make the payment every 2-3 months!
Just why!??

Same with me, I have been waiting like 2 weeks at this point to get the robux in my group (over 1k).

It has been pending for that time from me giving myself 1 robux to buy a gamepass to test a feature on my game, and still pending.

This is crap. 10 days, no support at all besides one of your robots and a whole lot of no answers. Honestly your customer service is going right down the drain. We are the entire reason your staff can actually make a living and this is how you return the favor? Yeah whatever I get it, it’s for the clothing designers. But guess how many pointless, annoying updates you’ve made in the past while that have had no actual benefit to anyone. Maybe actually consider next time that it may help one group of developers (in this case, clothing designers), and tarnish entire studios off the actual developer side of games.

I managed to get the funds in my group within 4/6 days but NOW I have waited 2 or 3 weeks and my funds are being “Veified” now I cant pay myself the ROBUX I earned on my group (I used a group so I dont need to swap accounts when developing) and as I see this is only for groups. If this “Verification” of robux is VERY ineffective because the people who made this thing happen could just use a random account instead of a group

EDIT: OK so Roblox added the Verifying robux thing which I have seen on threads takes 30 days
So you need to wait 33-37 days on groups for payouts and I assume every purchase resets the counter so it could take longer, this is VERY annoying

You ever notice when they make bad updates like this and get poor feedback they never bother to respond to us in replies? lol

I can confirm that this is one of the worst updates to come to the Roblox economy. I do not believe that I would need to wait for a week if I do not get a lot of sales. It ruins the motivation because you do not want to get sales and then wait an entire week for them to pend. It does not feel worth it man.

A longer ‘Pending Sales’ waiting period is completely fine, however, not under the circumstances developers are in to push out new game features.

For example, if you are releasing a game in a new group, you have to wait up to seven days+ just to create a single badge because it can only be bought with group funds. Simply that makes this extended waiting period more of a headache to developers.

I sincerely hope to see something as simple as a badge able to be purchased with personal funds instead of group funds in the future, as that would be one less headache for developers on the Roblox platform.

They could just simply find a more efficient method to verifying funds. This would reduce the amount of time spent waiting.

This update is really stupid, if you guys are gonna continue updating the waiting time, put a timer until the robux comes thru. I don’t know how long it will take for different amounts of robux to come thru. I have 9k pending at the moment. How long does that take???

I was reading on these responces, expecting answers from staff, but of course there’s none, you guys are roblox! The gods of terrible customer support. I was scammed of 3k robux, not much, but you guys did nothing. Now you bring this out? I have 9k pending to use on ads and I have to release them on a specific date and now I see people saying its taking around a month for them to pend??! This is by far one of if not the stupidest updates you guys have released, I understand you’re trying to keep the community safer, but who wouldn’t notice their robux has been missing for more than 3 days?? Who wouldn’t find out they’ve been scammed within 3 days??? It’s just natural selection at it’s finest. But still, if you guys are going to keep this trash update, at least make it where it’s instant when putting funds into YOUR OWN group.

3 days was bad enough, 7 days is really long and 1 month? You gotta be kidding. My funds are stuck and I need to pay developers and contractors. I’ve contacted support, they seem to copy paste the same message for everyone “Check every few days” “we can’t do anything”, Roblox please fix this and reduce wait time.

I’ve heard that now new groups are locked from using group funds, and the group would be locked. And instead of 4-7 days, it got increased to 7-10 days. I know this because a person I know told it.

Personally I think this update is very obsolete, not only does it affect developers but also clothing makers like myself, it seems the time that it takes for funds to come through depend on how many sales you have in your group/game, the more legitemate sales the less time it takes.
It seems that I’m getting my group funds every 5 days but even then its an extremely long time for such a low ammount
