How to Buy Robux using GCash

I know for a fact that Roblox has quite the following for younger kids. All of my nephews and nieces play this game. I’ve tried to install this game in my phone as well, and I can see why it’s so popular. You can create your own game within the Roblox platform and any player can join and play. The community really caters to children and promotes creativity and safe play.

There is also a microcurrency within the game, called Robux. You can earn Robux by creating and selling content in the platform. There are two ways of getting Robux — one is selling content, the other is buying it directly, either via a subscription or via buying in bulk.

What’s the simplest way to buy Robux using GCash?

The simplest way is buying directly from the Roblox site itself. You need to create your own account and login using that account.

Buying Robux from your browser

Here are the steps:

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Once in the main page, click on the Robux coin on the upper right of the screen.
  3. You will be redirected to the Buy Robux page.
  4. Select the amount or the subscription you want to buy.
  5. You will be taken to the payment page. In here, you can select Credit/Debit cards as both GCash Mastercard and AMEX Virtual Pay can be used as payment options.
  6. Input your debit card details.
  7. Once payment is successful (via Stripe), you will have your Robux as well as an email about the transaction.

Buying Robux from your phone

The procedure is similar to both IOS and Android phones. It would be better to first link your GCash to your Apple or Google Play account. You would then need to have an account with Roblox.

Here are the steps:

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Once in the main page, click on the Robux coin on the upper right of the screen.
  3. You will be redirected to the Buy Robux page.
  4. Select the number of Robux or type of subscription you plan to buy.
  5. The Google Play menu will show and you need to confirm the amount your are paying.
  6. Confirm the amount and payment should be successful.

Some other questions about buying Robux

I tried on buying Robux from my newly created account in my phone. The transaction limit error is shown. What should I do?

This particular error shows up in the Android app. Basically, you will need to make it so the account is a month old. Perhaps this is a way for Roblox to control how kids buy on the platform.

There is another way to buy — through the browser. The browser site has no such limitation.

Are there some other ways to buy Robux aside from directly buying from the site?

Yes, there are also Game Cards being sold on digital stores. There are sellers in Lazada and Shopee that sell with a premium. If you want reasonably priced Game Cards online, you can also buy from Data Blitz. As they go through Dragonpay, you can also pay via GCash without using the GCash debit cards.

How do I redeem Roblox Game Cards?

You need to go to the redemption site, and follow the instructions.

How do I cash-in into GCash?

There are multiple ways to cash-in, but the simplest method is via bank cash-in as you don’t need to go anywhere.

How do I link my Google Play or Apple account to GCash?

For both Apple and Google accounts, you will need to go to your account page and add GCash as a payment method. (IOS / Android)


We talked about how to buy Robux using GCash in both the browser and the app. You can also buy Game Cards from Datablitz, through Dragonpay. Keep in mind though that Dragonpay has transaction fee on top of most GCash payments.
