PromptPurchase items not getting 10% commission back in pending sales when buying Roblox-owned items

Today and a few days ago, I tested my promptpurchase feature on a couple of different items (in a game client game on PC, not testing in studio)

I bought these ROBLOX-owned items through promptpurchase on my group game, hoping to get the 10% back in pending sales, but neither of them got me any pending sales or funds back, and I’m not sure why
It started happening 10/9/19 when I first bought Sinister F

I believe this only happens with items created by ROBLOX.

Here are my transaction screenshots:


I believe this feature has always been in place to prevent players from getting discounts on items. They don’t want you to buy an item and get 10% back.

Nope it hasn’t. I used to sell roblox hats ingame and I would make 10% commission. Roblox has removed this feature around 2 months ago without any explanation.

This would be intentional, particularly because UGC hats are now a thing and they don’t want players stealing away a portion of what the community creators of those items would otherwise get.

It seems to work perfectly fine with UGC items though!

It just doesn’t work with ROBLOX owned items.

Good to know, clarified in the title here.

No, it only applies when you buy a roblox-owned hat from your own game. I used to use this method to buy expensive hats when the feature came out.

I see. But now when other people buy roblox-owned hats in my game I make no commission as well. Roblox preventing people from getting discounts on hats when they buy it in their own place is understandable, but I don’t see why they would remove all commissions.
