Why Can’t I Trade On Roblox? Here Are 5 Quick Solutions

Why Can’t I Trade On Roblox? Here Are 5 Quick Solutions

Are you having fun on Roblox but have found that you can’t trade? Trading is a popular element of the game Roblox, but it’s frustrating if you’re having issues trying to get this to work.

We’ve compiled a quick guide for you to help with any issues you’re having when it comes to trading on Roblox. 

Follow the below steps to get your issues sorted.

You Need a Premium Membership

First thing first: to trade on Roblox, you need to make sure you’ve signed up for a premium membership. 

Roblox runs a service called the ‘Builders Club’, which is a paid-for service that provides users with several benefits. These include a daily income of 15 ROBUX, a no-ads feature, and most importantly for you, the ability to trade with other users on the game. 

It’s worth checking that you’re paying for this service if you’re having issues trading. This can be paid via a monthly or annual fee ranging from $5.95 per month to $57.95 if paid annually. You can check if you’re a member of the Builders Club by logging into your Roblox account, or more information can be found about this here.

You Aren’t Following the User You Want to Trade With

If you’re part of the Builders Club and this is running correctly, it could be that the issue lies with the user you’re trying to trade with. 

Some users may be under the age of 13, so they may have selected the option of only trading with users who follow them. Try trading with another user to see if this works as it could be that your settings aren’t compatible with the user you were trying to trade with.

The User you want to Trade with Doesn’t Have Trade Enabled

Similarly, the user you’re trying to trade with may not have trade enabled at all. 

This could be because they’re not a member of the Builders Club. Alternatively, they may have deliberately chosen not to trade via their privacy settings.

Check Roblox Privacy Settings

Regarding privacy settings, we recommend double-checking yours if you still have issues with trading on Roblox. Follow the below steps to ensure that trading is enabled within your Roblox settings:

  • Navigate to Roblox Settings
  • Click Privacy
  • Make sure “Who Can Trade With Me” is set to Everyone
  • Check “Who Can View My Inventory” is also set to Everyone

Not All Items Can Be Traded

The last step we recommend is checking that the item you want to trade is a tradable item on Roblox. Not all items can be traded away, such as the following:

  • Free items collected through promo codes 
  • Items created by other game users
  • Unique items you’ve earned in certain games 

If you’re trying to trade an item that qualifies as any of the above, this could be why you’re having trouble trading on Roblox.


We hope these steps have helped if you’ve struggled to trade on Roblox! You should now be able to happily trade to your heart’s content.

If you’re still having issues, we suggest seeking help from Roblox support. They can pinpoint the issue and help get you trading in no time.
