To make a gamepass, you must first have a game published on Roblox. Once you have a game, follow these steps:
- In the Roblox Studio menu, select Game Passes. Click the “Create New Pass” button.
- Enter a name and description for your gamepass. The name should be catchy and descriptive. The description should explain what players will receive by purchasing the pass.
- Set the price for your gamepass in Robux. Most gamepasses range from 50 to 500 Robux. Consider the value of the perks provided to determine a fair price.
- Choose an image to represent your gamepass. The image should be eye-catching and visually represent the theme of your game and the perks of the pass.
- Add the code to grant the gamepass benefits to your game. Place the code in a Script within Roblox Studio and ensure it works properly before publishing.
- Publish your gamepass and promote it within your game! Let players know about the additional features and items they can receive by purchasing your gamepass.

How to Make a Roblox Gamepass
To create your own Roblox gamepass, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Roblox account and open Roblox Studio. This is the tool used to build and develop games on the Roblox platform.
- Select “File” > “New” to start a new game project. Give your game a name and save the file. This will create a blank baseplate to build your game on.
- Design and build your game. Add objects, scripts, and plugins to create an engaging gaming experience for players. Playtest your game to work out any issues.
- Once you have built and tested your game, you’re ready to create a gamepass. Select “Game Settings” > “Passes” to open the Passes menu.
- Click “Add New Pass” to create your gamepass. Enter a name, description, and price for your gamepass. The name and description should entice players to want to purchase the pass. Select an icon to represent your gamepass.
- Choose the type of gamepass. A “Content” gamepass unlocks access to gear, levels or other content in your game. An “Ability” gamepass gives players special abilities, boosts or perks. Select the appropriate option for your game.
- Set the gamepass price in Robux, the Roblox virtual currency. You receive 70% of sales revenue, while Roblox receives the remaining 30%. Price passes from around 100 to 500 Robux.
- Publish your gamepass. Click “Publish” to make the gamepass live and available for purchase in your game. Players can now buy your gamepass to unlock its benefits and perks!
- Promote your gamepass to increase sales. Advertise on the Roblox platform and through social media to spread the word about your creation. Offer discounts and sales to drive more purchases.
With some time and effort, you can create a successful gamepass on Roblox. Follow these steps and reap the rewards as players enjoy your game!
Choosing a Gamepass Theme and Price
To create an engaging gamepass, you’ll need to choose a theme and set an appropriate price. Consider your game’s genre and audience to determine a theme that will resonate with players. For a roleplaying game, you might offer a magic wand or special armor. For an obstacle course, provide double jump abilities or speed boosts. Get creative!
Once you have a theme in mind, determine a fair price. Roblox takes 70% of revenue from gamepasses, so price it reasonably for your players but high enough to earn a good profit. A few options:
•$10-$30 for a popular, high-demand theme. Players will likely buy at this price point if the benefits are worthwhile. Prices on the higher end of this range are best for limited edition or premium items.
•$5-$15 for a moderately desirable theme. This range works well for most standard gear, abilities or other enhancements. The lower end may encourage more impulse buys.
•$1-$5 for a small bonus item. Keep prices on the lower end for simple extras that provide minor perks. Players will likely buy at this price without much thought.
•Consider a tiered pricing model with options at multiple price points. For example, offer increasing levels of an ability or gear at $5, $10 and $20. This way all players can participate at a level they can afford.
Playtest your gamepass to ensure the benefits match the price. If players don’t seem interested or complain the price is too high for the rewards, you may need to rework your theme or lower the cost. It’s best to start at a lower price point and increase incrementally based on popularity and sales.
You want players to feel they received good value for their money. A well-designed gamepass at a fair price will leave a positive impression, lead to more sales, and help build a loyal player base. With some experimenting, you’ll find the winning combination to create a successful Roblox gamepass!
Creating Your Gamepass
Once you have created your place, the next step is to make a gamepass. A gamepass is an item players can purchase to unlock special features or gear in your game. To create a gamepass, follow these steps:
\n\n###Set a Price
First, determine how much Robux you want to charge for your gamepass. Popular price points are 25, 50, 100 or 200 Robux. Keep in mind Roblox takes 30% of revenue from gamepass sales. You’ll want to price it high enough to make a profit, but low enough that many players will purchase it.
\n\n###Choose a Name and Image
Give your gamepass a compelling name and choose an eye-catching image to represent it. The name and image are important as they indicate to players what the gamepass unlocks. For example, you might call a gamepass that gives players special gear ‘VIP Package’ and choose an image showing the gear.
\n\n###Describe the Features
In the gamepass description, clearly outline everything players will receive by purchasing it. Mention any special gear, levels, badges or other benefits players will unlock. Be specific to set the right expectations. You might say something like: “This gamepass unlocks the exclusive VIP t-shirt, access to the VIP lounge and VIP name tag.”
\n\n###Set the Benefits
In the Develop section of Roblox Studio, go to the Game Passes tab. Click ‘Create New Pass’ to make your gamepass. Enter the details from the previous steps, including the price, name, image and description. Then, use scripting to set up the actual benefits players will receive in your game after purchasing the pass. This could include giving players gear when they join the game or opening up VIP areas.
\n\n###Promote Your Gamepass
To increase sales, promote your new gamepass within your game. You might place signs advertising the gamepass, describe it when players join the game or offer a discount for the first week after launch. Cross-promote on your game’s Roblox page and social media as well. With an enticing gamepass and smart promotion, you’ll be making Robux in no time!
Adding Gamepass Perks and Features
Once you have created your gamepass, it’s time to determine what benefits and features it will provide to players. These perks and attributes are what will motivate players to purchase your gamepass. Consider including:
Exclusive Gear or Accessories
Provide players with special in-game gear, clothing, accessories or other items that can only be obtained by purchasing your gamepass. This could be a unique outfit, special weapon, decorative item for their avatar, or access to an exclusive area. Offering limited edition or rare collectible items is a great incentive.
Additional Game Features
Grant players access to special in-game features like an exclusive game mode, ability, or tool only available to gamepass holders. This could be a unique power-up, special vehicle, additional build tool, or access to a “members only” area of the game. Providing gameplay advantages and added dimensions of fun that free players don’t get is an excellent motivation for players to buy your gamepass.
Offer players early access to new game content, features or gear before the general public. Giving gamepass holders a “sneak peek” at what’s coming next in your game and the opportunity to be the first to experience new additions is a compelling reason for players to purchase a gamepass. Players who want to be trendsetters will flock to gain this exclusive early access.
###Game Currency or Boosts
Provide additional in-game currency, loot boxes, boosters or other resources to players who buy your gamepass. Things like coins, gems, loot crates, XP boosters, item enhancers or level-up boosts give gamepass holders advantages for progressing in your game. The more generous and useful the resources, the more incentive for players to invest in your gamepass.
Offering a combination of these types of exclusive perks and benefits for your gamepass holders will make it an extremely attractive purchase for your players. Be creative and think about what would motivate you as a player to buy a gamepass. With the right mix of limited and useful features, your gamepass is sure to be a hit.
Setting a Gamepass Image and Description
To attract players to purchase your gamepass, you’ll need an eye-catching image and enticing description. Follow these steps to set up your gamepass listing:
First, you’ll need to obtain an image to represent your gamepass. You have a few options here:
•Create your own image using an image editing tool like Paint.NET or GIMP. Make sure the image is 208×208 pixels.
•Hire a graphic designer on Fiverr or Upwork to design a custom image for you. Provide details on your gamepass so they can create an image that fits the theme and style.
•Search for free gamepass images on Roblox and re-use one that fits your needs. Just be sure to check the license to ensure you have permission to use and modify the image.
Next, you need to write a compelling gamepass description to persuade players to buy. Your description should:
•Clearly state what the player will receive when purchasing the gamepass. For example, “This gamepass gives you access to an exclusive VIP lounge and double in-game currency!”
•Highlight the key benefits and value offered. For example, “Get ahead of other players with twice the rewards and access to teleport anywhere in the game world.”
•Use an enthusiastic and engaging tone to generate excitement. For example, “This is the ULTIMATE gamepass for serious players. Unlock max level gear, high-tier pets, and more!”
•Include the gamepass price prominently. For example, “For only 300 Robux, you get all these rewards and perks!”
•Leave the player with a strong call to action, such as “What are you waiting for? Buy now and get in on the action!”
•Have a friend or family member review and provide feedback on your description. Get a second opinion to make sure it’s as compelling as possible.
With an eye-catching image and persuasive description in place, you’ll turn more visitors into paying customers. Be sure to promote your new gamepass on the Roblox platform to reach the widest audience possible. Success is just a few sales away!
Promoting Your Gamepass to Players
Promoting your gamepass is key to gaining sales and making a profit from your creation. Here are some effective ways to market your gamepass to players:
Players who enjoy your game are your target market. Announce the release of your gamepass on the game’s discussion page and in the game itself. Consider posting announcements on the game’s social media platforms as well. Offer a discount or free trial period when first launching the gamepass to spur initial interest.
Engage with your player community. Respond to player questions and feedback on your game’s discussion page and social media. Address any concerns players have about the gamepass to build goodwill. Participate in the broader Roblox developer community as well by commenting on blog posts and discussions. Establishing yourself as an active, engaging developer will make players more inclined to support your gamepass.
Run a promotional sale or bundle. Having a sale where you discount the price of the gamepass, even temporarily, can drive new purchases. You can also bundle the gamepass with exclusive in-game items or currency to increase its perceived value. Limited-time promotions create a sense of urgency that motivates players to buy before the sale ends.
Advertise on the Roblox platform. Roblox allows developers to promote their gamepasses through website ads and the in-app marketplace. While advertising on Roblox does cost Robux, it exposes your gamepass to a huge audience of potential customers. Only advertise if you have a sizeable budget and expect a profitable return on your investment.
Offer free trials and previews. Allowing players to try your gamepass for free, even if only for a limited time, is an excellent way to demonstrate its value. Players can experience what the gamepass offers firsthand, and will be more willing to purchase if they find it enhances their enjoyment of the game. Previews and sneak peeks of an upcoming gamepass also build hype.
Continuously improving your gamepass by adding new features and items gives existing owners a reason to renew their subscription and potential new customers an incentive to buy. Keeping your gamepass up-to-date and actively maintained shows your commitment to providing players with a quality product and experience.
Getting Paid: Linking a Roblox Group and Enabling Payouts
To earn Robux from your gamepass, you’ll need to link a Roblox group to your game and enable group payouts. Here are the steps:
- Create a Roblox group or use an existing group you own. This group will receive a percentage of revenue from your gamepass sales.
- Go to the Develop page of your game on Roblox and select the “Monetization” option.
- Click “Configure Group Payouts”. This will allow you to choose a percentage of revenue to share with your group. The standard amount is 10%, but you can choose any amount between 5-30%.
- Select your group from the drop-down menu. Only groups you own or are an admin in will appear as options.
- Choose the percentage you want to share and click “Save”. Your selected group will now earn that percentage of revenue from all gamepass sales in your game.
- Roblox pays out group funds and developer earnings around the 15th of each month. The payout threshold is 100,000 Robux. Any earned funds below that threshold will carry over to the next month.
- You can view details on your group’s earnings and payouts by going to the “Payouts” tab in the group admin page. Here you’ll see monthly statements showing revenue, fees, payout amounts and more.
If you run into any issues setting up or managing group payouts, the Roblox support team is happy to help. You can contact them through the “Help” link at the bottom of any Roblox page. Be sure to provide details on your issue or question and what steps you’ve already tried.
Enabling group payouts is a great way to share the success of your game with friends and build your development group. With some promotion, a popular gamepass can become a nice source of recurring revenue for both you and your supporters. Keep creating, keep improving your game, and keep your community involved — that’s the key to building a sustainable business on Roblox!
