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 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

    @Great_Snake: Go Ask the Vault author(s) to implement/update Fe. There is also a convert command

    /vault-convert [economy1] [economy2]

    I haven't tested it myself, but it's mentioned in Vault's plugin.yml ;)

    Hmm ChestShop doesn't seem to work with the economy plugin "Fe", and yes before anyone says anything I do have the newest version of Vault installed. What economies do you all use?

    And a question for Acrobat: Any reason or thing I can do to make chestshop compatible with fe? We have been using Fe for years and I would hate to have to switch away from it, the though of converting everyones balances over sounds like a nightmare.

    @Acrobot: Go

    I would really like backwards compatibility. If you're too busy, just tell me which classes/methods of your plugin require 1.7.8+ ? And i'll see if I can devise a "fix" and toss a pull request. Thanks!

    @Adzdon: Go There are, however due to BukkitDev's rules I was forced by the mods to take them down.

    @videosar64: Go Could you post the whole stack trace?

    @OmegaTronz: Go Well, I do need more of the log, as the error message tells me nothing.

    I was wondering, why am I getting this error in my console?
    ERROR Could not pass event ProtectionCheckEvent to ChestShop v3.7.15

    If you need more of the log, just ask.
