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.

    @LordKainzo: Go If you mean Admin Shops, please try updating to the LATEST version of Spigot and deleting plugins/ChestShop/users.db

    @KevinEssence: Go Sometimes it seems like the users.db file can corrupt if you've run an earlier version of Spigot. Please try downloading the latest version of Spigot again and delete plugins/ChestShop/users.db

    @_Snoogles_: Go As I replied above, try running the latest version of Spigot and ChestShop, making sure that plugins/ChestShop/users.db is deleted after the update.

    @Gaurav1234: Go You can already download the latest, dev version, that works with UUIDs. How it works is once a player joins the server, his username is mapped to an UUID. Then, all the signs are using his name (even if he changes it), which is assigned to the UUID. That's also why I require that players have to join the server at least once after the update for their shops to work.

    @Acrobot: Go

    Latest dev build has issues with the "server shop"

    For some reason "Exchange" isnt working for players - how do we force this to work?

    @TheChosenOne0113: Go Unfortunately, I will be forced to make you update your plugins, due to the fact that as soon as the exploit became known to me, I fixed it. On 1st April.

    @_Snoogles_: Go I cannot reproduce that behaviour. Which ChestShop version are you running?

    Bug: Having same issue as jhezreel708. Bug is being exploited by putting "Playername] [amount] 1EB10000000 [Itemid]" on a sign and doesn't require items in the chest.

    This is a severe bug. It must be solved, or I will be forced to remove ChestShop.
