Make off là gì

I am not making any money off of this product. I am not making any money out of this sản phẩm.

If you tell me both, then how would you explain "off" here as it doesn"t sound right to me since "make off" means:

Run away; usually includes taking something or somebody toàn thân along

I"d prefer the second one, although not because of the reason you cited.

"Make money off (of) something" is different from the phrasal verb "make off."

Both "make money out of" & "make money off" are actually right.

For me though, "make money off" may also be used to lớn imply an unscrupulous method of generating income.

ex. make money off my friends, make money off the mentally ill etc.

To me, the second one makes impression of being too literal. Like minting coins off arcade tokens, or printing notes.What about making money on something?

This seems lượt thích another US/UK split. Looking at Ngrams, "make money out of" is the traditional way of saying it, but in the U.S., "make money off (of)" has now overtaken out of in frequency. From Ngrams

In the U.K., out of is still far more comtháng. Since it"s still correct in the U.S., you should probably choose out of if you"re deciding between them.

Since the phrasal verb make off does not take an object, the meaning run away is impossible for "make money off"; lớn use the phrasal verb with money as an object, you would need to say "make off with money".

Off of is a compound preposition comtháng in London (& possibly elsewhere in the UK) but deprecated by purists, who strongly prefer either from or in some cases off. Said purists vì chưng not appear to lớn have sầu any objection lớn out of.

In your example, out of or from are idiomatic. One does hear off or off of in this use, but they are not standard.
