Roblox is a fun gaming platform with endless possibilities. One of them is Roblox trading. If you are a beginner, you’ll end up asking about the method to trade on Roblox to your fellow players. However, most of them won’t be able to explain to you, or may not even know themselves.
So, I’ll do that. Here, I will walk you through the question- how to trade on Roblox. I have created this very simple and short Roblox Trading guide for beginners. You can go through it, and understand every aspect of trading on Roblox.
What is Meant by Trading items on Roblox?
Trading means to exchange a specific item or service for a currency, item, or another service. In the world of Roblox, it is the same. Trading on Roblox means exchanging items (Limited/Limited U) and Robux with other members on Roblox. You can trade your excess items to earn Robux or get the items that you really need from other players for a suitable cost.
Roblox allows players to trade their goods and Robux for the things they want. If you are a Robloxian, you should definitely understand and use the trading system as it is very useful to get your hands on some really exclusive items. You can even gain some rare items easily in trades.
What are the Requirements to Trade Items on Roblox?
Trading on Roblox is available for everyone. Still, there are certain requirements that you have to meet before trading on Roblox. Let’s take a look at them:
- You must be a member of any one of the Builder’s Club. So, if you haven’t bought the subscription yet, join the Builder’s Club right now. It’ll cost you around $5.92 per month, and may move up to $100 per year.
- You and the player with whom you’d like to trade should have trading enabled through the Privacy tab of their Account Settings. If you haven’t enabled it, visit this link, and do that.
These are the two key requirements that you must meet before starting trade on Roblox. Make sure you take the necessary steps if you don’t meet them.
Why you should Trade on Roblox?
Roblox has recently removed restrictions from the over-ownership of items. So, you can now own multiple copies of the same items. Trading them for other items or Robux is a good way to get rid of them. You can give them away to get the items that you want. Earlier, Roblox only allowed trading items that are not previously owned by the receiver. But, now any Robloxian can store as many similar items as they wish.
If you are a collector, you will need a lot of ‘rare’ items to make your collection worthy. Trading makes it easier to get rare items. You can even find higher-ranked items for a very affordable price without much effort. All this makes trading a ‘must-try’ opportunity for Robloxians.
How to Trade on Roblox?
Now let’s come to our point of focus- how to start trading on Roblox? Trading on Roblox is an easy but careful action. I have explained the whole procedure in a few simple steps. You just need to follow these and you’ll learn everything about trading items on Roblox.
Step-1: Open a browser, visit Roblox, and sign in to your account. Now go to the player’s profile page with whom you want to trade.
Step-2: Next, click on the button that appears like 3-dots present in the upper-right corner of the box having their username and friends/follower info.
Step-3: Next, click on ‘Trade Items’ from the pop-up menu.
Step-4: A new page will open that will show the available items that you both have to trade. Choose the items that you want to trade away (Give), and then choose the items that you want to trade for (Take).
Tip: You can make the deal lucrative by including additional Robux. However, remember that Roblox charges a 30% transaction fee once the offer is accepted.
Note: The items that you trade away will appear in the ‘Your Offer’ list, while the items that you trade for will appear in the ‘Your Request’ list.
Step-5: Check the trade listings, and finalize your decision. Once done, click on the ‘Send Request’ (Make Offer) button to submit the offer.
Step-6: Finally, confirm your trade request and wait for the other player to respond.
That’s it. The other player will receive a private message about your trade request and respond accordingly. If he accepts your offer, you both will exchange the item.
How to view your trades on Roblox?
It is vital to keep track of the trades you have made on Roblox. You can easily view your current or past trades by navigating to the ‘Trades page.’ Follow these steps in order to learn it properly:
Step-1: Go to Roblox, check the left-side menu of the page, and click on ‘Trade’ from there.
Step-2: Once the Trade page loads, you can find Inbound, Outbound, Completed, and Inactive trades from the pull-down menu. Just visit the type of trade you want to see.
Step-3: Find the trade you want to view and load it to check the details.
That’s it. This is how you can view your trades on Roblox.
How to Accept, Decline, or Counter a Trade Request?
Trading is a two-way process. You have already learned about sending a trade request, now let’s take a look at responding to trade requests. There are 3 responses to a trade request- Accept, Decline or Counter. Countering a trade request means you want to edit it as you are unhappy.
Here is a simple guide to accept, decline, or counter any trade request you get:
Step-1: Go to the trade that you want to respond to by using the method mentioned above.
Step-2: Once on the trade page, click on Accept if you like the offer, or click on Decline if you want to reject the offer.
Step-3: If you don’t like the offer but want to edit to make it more feasible, click on Counter.
Step-4: Once you like the counteroffer, click on ‘Make Offer’ to send a new trade.
That’s it. This is how you can respond to the incoming trade requests on Roblox.
Trading is a very beneficial aspect for Roblox users. If you are a passionate player, you can become a regular trader, and earn lots of Robux as well as rare items. This is how you can trade on Roblox. Remember that the amount of Robux in a trade cannot exceed 50% of the current offer. It is calculated after the transaction fee is removed. So, make your trades wisely.
