Depending on the popularity of your game or clothing items, this can lead to you making real money. Getting to this point is incredibly difficult, but it’s certainly not impossible. Even if you don’t end up making money from your Roblox creations, you should pick up plenty of helpful skills on your creative journey.

Everything you need to know about being a Roblox creator
Getting started as a Roblox creator
First, you need to establish what you want to create. It’s important to study successful Roblox products in order to work out why people are drawn to them. If you’re focused purely on making money, you may want to steer away from creating your own range of clothes. There are a few successful Roblox fashion designers, but these types of creators are extremely rare.
Though you can make some Robux selling clothes, it’s very easy to have your designs stolen by bots on the avatar shop. There’s very little you can do to combat this, and the competitive nature of the Roblox clothing creators means you will likely have to sell your designs for the bare minimum amount of just five Robux. Again, it’s not impossible to make some money in this business, but it won’t bring in anywhere near the money as creating your own game will.
The most effective way of making consistent money in Roblox involves designing your own game. Unfortunately, it’s also the most difficult method due to the amount of time it takes to learn how to make a great game. If you do have a smash hit on your hands, you can sell Game Passes at any price you see fit. We’ve highlighted ways for you to do exactly this in our Roblox free Robux guide
