I am not responding to bug reports in the comments. Please create a ticket here!

I released my first Android game, would you mind giving it a go?


A simple, yet very powerful system for making physical shops using signs and chests.

It's never been that easy to create shops! With features like shop protection and anti-lag protection, you won't have to worry about your server's economy anymore!

"Just works"! Don't worry about your economy plugin, ChestShop supports all of them with Vault).

The plugin by default submits anonymous stats about your server (player count, plugin/server version and type) to a public statistics website - - in order to provide the developers with usage information. If you wish to opt out, you can do so in the PluginMetrics/config.yml file. It also features an auto-update feature, which can be turned off in the config.

Additional modules for ChestShop:

Using shops

It's easy! Just right-click the sign to buy, left-click to sell. (You can configure the buttons in the config file!)

How to create a shop

Player shop

Place a chest on the ground
Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)
On the sign, write:Sign
First line will be filled by the plugin automatically
Price line is a combination of buy and sell prices. You need to have a price indicator (like 'B' - price that will apply to items BOUGHT by PLAYERS - or 'S' - the SELL price) near the price - the prices are separated by a colon (:)Some of the possible price combinations: "B 5:5 S", "B 5", "S free"
You can find out the name of the item you're holding by doing /iteminfo
For exampleExample sign
A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from AcrobotPL

Admin Shop - shop with unlimited items

Firstly, you've got to be sure that you've the ChestShop.admin permission / you are an OP. To make an Admin Shop, simply put "Admin Shop" (configurable in config.yml) on the first line of the sign.


Here is a list of player-made translations: Translation list

Permission nodes

    I have an admin shop that selles book an quill. However for some weird reason players cant buy them, only the one with OP can. Nothing appears in the chat and all other adminshops work.

    @Acrobot: Go

    For players creating new signs, it still shows their old username, is this normal even when it's a new sign?

    There is a slight problem to your UUID support. I have a player (player 1) on my server that changed his name from X to Y, and someone else (player 2) changed his name to from Z to "player 1"'s old name X. Now "player 2" can make a chestshop and works all fine, but when another player (player 3) sells something to "player 2", the money is taken away from "player 1"

    Basically, someone changed his name to someone elses old username. Now when he makes a sign, the money gets withdrawn from the player who originally had that name.

    I hope I explained it correctly :3

    Hey, Is Shopkeepers in any way using the chest shop system for sign shop?

    I'm wondering this because the chest shop WorldGuard flag would be really usefull for my Sign Shopkeepers central trading area.

    @QubeCraftMC: Go Yes, it has UUID support and what you are seeing is the backwards-compatibility in action. (In short, to maintain backwards compatibility I have to log the name a player has logged in with at first, and then put it on any sign he creates - even when the nickname changes)
