Roblox lets the creators and game developers earn money on their platform when they successfully sell their in-game cosmetic items or game passes.
Before the earned Robux can be used by the developers or exchanged for real money under the Developer Exchange program, Roblox changes its conversion state to ‘Pending’. That means the procedure is not instant, and the creator has to wait for some time.
Here, find the exact time it takes for the Robux to change its state from ‘Pending’.
How long does Pending Robux take
Answer in Nutshell: The ‘Pending’ Robux takes around 3 to 7 days, depending on the type of membership and value of the Robux being transferred. It sometimes takes more than 30 days for pending Robux to change their state.
1. Depending on membership
The developers and creators in Roblox have the option to opt for a premium membership on the platform. There are a lot of features in the premium membership that come in handy for the developer.
Talking specifically about the transfer of Robux, the premium members enjoy faster transfers. It takes around 3 days for the pending Robux to change their state in case of a premium account.
For non-premium account holders, transferring pending Robux takes around 7 days.
Well, all types of account owners need to wait before they can use Robux. The waiting period serves as a security measure on the platform to ensure legitimate transactions.
2. Depending on Robux value
As per many users, sometimes it takes more than 7 days for their pending Robux to transfer. We have found that it happens when you are trying to transfer a significant amount of Robux, say 30,000, and even more.
Let’s not consider 30,000 to be any kind of limit. Roblox might delay the transfer procedure even if the amount is considered significant by them and it is less than 30,000.
After all, the Robux goes to a pending state first to avoid any fraudulent transaction. And for an amount that is considered significant, goes for a pending period of up to 30 days.

3. Depending on account standing
If you are someone who has just started to sell their stuff on the Roblox platform, you will experience a waiting period.
Well, we are not sure if Roblox really does that. Still, as we dived deeper into the forums, we found that the new accounts need to create a sort of trust over time to get a regular pending period of 3 to 7 days for their Robux value, which is considered significant.
And that’s pretty much it.
Now you know why your transfers are shown as ‘Pending’ and also the time pending Robux takes to transfer.
