Best way to get a refund in Rocket League!
Today we will discuss your best options to get as much back of your purchase, after buying an item or credits that you regret.
Can you get a refund from Psyonix?
The easiest way to get a refund would obviously be if Psyonix allowed the players to return the goods within a certain amount of time.
The problem is that Psyonix doesn’t allow refunds. Even though other Epic games like Fortnite allow a certain amount of refunds a year, this is yet to be expanded to Rocket League. This may come soon in the future, but for now, we have to look for other alternatives.
What is the alternative to refunds for tradable items?
There are a few approaches depending on what you bought. This is necessary now that refunds are impossible. Keep in mind that items from the item shop are not tradable.
Tradable items can be traded on the open market. If you are in this category it usually means you bought credits that you would like refunded or bought some items with your credits that you don’t want anyway. The problem is that credits on the open market are worth quite a bit less than when you buy them through Rocket League. Therefore it can be advised to buy credits through a 3rd party platform such as Discord or Reddit in the future to save some money in the first place.

It is possible to find traders with a high reputation that will happily take real currency for their items or credits. The same method can be used when you need to sell your items or credits that you don’t want anyway, just the other way around.
It is advised to trade your items into credits. This is a good idea since it is easier to trade credits into money as credits work as currency in the Rocket League economy. You can use sites like Rocket League Garage or the subreddit Rocket League Exchange for this purpose. You can also check out this article about selling items. Credits on PC are worth around 0,45$ pr. 100 while Xbox credits sell for 0,22$ pr. 100 on the open market. Even though you will be losing a lot of value, this can be better than no refund at all.
What can you do if you bought items from the item shop?
The item shop is the most common place to buy untradable items. These items are way harder to get any money back for since they are account bound and therefore locked.
Your best bet is to sell your Rocket League account. This is more difficult and you would also lose all other progress you have unlocked. This is the only way though, and it is not advised unless you absolutely have to get your money back. It is important to make sure that you are trading with trusted players with a high reputation for a transaction like this. Make sure to check usernames through various scam databases and look out for red flags.
In short, it is difficult to get your money back if you buy items through Rocket League, and if you ever want to get rid of them you will lose value. It is a good idea to use 3rd party platforms to buy credits cheaper. When you have to sell your tradable items, use a 3rd party platform just like you should when you buy items. If your items are untradable you should seriously consider if it is worth it to get the money back. If you decide that it is necessary you have to sell your account.
