Can you make money from your settlements?

    If I CAN make money from them, how do I collect it?

    Is it automatic every time I visit the settlement with the shops in them?

    You were answered, it does indeed go into that settlement’s workbench

    I have found that the most effective way to make money is to build as many industrial water purifiers as you can, returning regularly to empty the bottles and sell them. Sanctuary is a good place to do this, and with a dozen water purifiers I never had to worry about money again.

    You will likely need to build lots of turrets at the settlement, as the purifiers will attract raiders.
