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

    @rautamiekka: Go Not possible, because hoppers technically do not have an owner, neither do minecarts with hoppers.

    @maxlehot1234: Go Look into priceLimits.yml in the config.

    HI, is it possible to limit price per item inside a config file? Is it possible to add this? This can be very useful to prevent abuse. on my server. Thanks

    @Acrobot: Go

    You could block hoppers that aren't yours instead of total block.

    @Ecamvelo: Go They can't. This prevents stealing from shops.

    @KevinEssence: Go That's the point. The names remain the same on the sign, but it should work just fine. Testing this, however, is a PITA - as Mojang thought that it would be good if you couldn't change your username more than 3 times per month (I think it was month).

    Hello, I was wondering if my players can use Admin Shops when they are not op?

    Okay so chestshops are still not uuid compatible. When players change their names it remains the old name on the chest shop and I constantly have to manually wipe them.
