ChestShop (iConomyChestShop)

ChestShop logo - mini



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.

    Potions stack when purchasing. I cant say what version this started in however every time someone purchases a potion if they have one in their inventory it stacks it. This of course is being exploited. This has been an issue since 1.6 on and off however I am finally getting to where I need to block it. The logical solution was to block the ability to sell potions. However, I cant seem to get the permission to work in pex i have done the following.


    Which should negate the ability to sell this particular potion but its not working. I also looked to see if there was a node for potions but you have not created one. Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated. I am satisified with blocking the ability to sell them but them not stacking at all would be ideal.

    Quickly to review what happens.

    Create shop with one potion for sale, full or not full inventory buy 1 potion, then buy another it stacks with the first.

    @real5lim5hady5555: Go Unfortunately, I cannot conclude anything from the pie chart - I would require at least a timing report. It might be connected to either your economy plugin struggling or you having some hopper-intensive structures on your server.

    Hi, for some reason chest shop is eating up my servers ram and causing lag. Any idea why? That is a link to a pie chart that shows how much ram each plugin is using and chest shop is consistently at 40%.

    Please help, thanks.

    @jhezreel708: Go

    Try looking in the server log/console (in case you're the owner) - From what I recall, there's output from the plugin which shows who used ChestShop.

    Dude do u got some permission set-up on this type of shop? cuz some players are using this to cheat up on our server. :( pls help dude. Sign format:

    [Playername] [amount] 1EB10000000 [Itemid]

    - this chest shop does not require any item inside chest. this will allow the user to give free items to the buyers or he might use 2 accounts 1 chestshop maker 1 buyer from his chestshop maker.

    with this he can generate his own items for free Chestshopbut

    Any solution? or any way to track everyone who uses this? CS version : 3.7.5

    @Acrobot: Go

    Kind of what soaring is saying. I can do things properly as an op, but when players create try to buy or sell, they don't get any messages. They dont' get the items they try to buy or sell as well or any no permission messages, they have permissions btw.
