ChestShop (iConomyChestShop)

ChestShop logo - mini

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 - iConomy, BOSEconomy and more - you need Vault to use other economy plugins).

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

Description*shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:*create all types of shops any item from shop any item to shop

    Hello I have a question, I play on a Prison / plot server with your plugin, MC1.7.10

    And I was wondering if it was possible to allow shop chests to empty/fill with hoppers? let me explain, only the plot owner can place blocks on the plots so hopper theft wouldn't be an issue. But it would let the owners empty and fill the stores with this possible? maybe a config option?

    thanks for your time, (whoever answers).

    I'm having a problem with this plugin.

    I am doing the format correctly for the signs however they aren't registering.

    I do it like this:

    Line 1: [Admin Shop] Line 2: 1 Line 3: B 200:100 S Line 4: Diamond

    However it doesnt work whenever another player or I try to buy stuff. You just destroy the sign when trying to sell, and nothing happens when you try to buy. What could be happening?

    Is there an ETA on the update which fixes the lag issue? Sorry for asking but our server depends on ChestShop.

    I run a few servers. The vault issue fixed my 1.7.9 server with no issues.

    However over the last few days, my 1.5 servers running chestshop have stopped working at all. The servers are not registering the plugin as even being working. We tried both 3.7.8 and 3.7.9, using vault for 1.5.2.

    We run modded servers, and we know that generally bukkit doesn't support this, but I thought I would ask. Is there anything that changed in the last week that would have made 1.5 chestshop break all of a sudden?
