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

    @asmit119: Go I cannot remove all shops. I do not log the shops anywhere. The limits would only apply to new shops - and not all the shops that were created before.

    Believe me, I investigated all the options.

    @Acrobot: Go

    Acrobot, Actually I had a different idea rather than adding the shops to a DB that shouldn't require a DB. Also the module you say exists does not actually work, just as ChestShopLogger is no longer on the DEV! It was pulled off! So my theory was why bother pushing shops to a DB, when the only thing that matters is how many shops each player is allowed to have (a permission granted to them which corresponds to how many shops people with that permission can have and a permission that allows for INFINITE SHOPS *backwards compatible...) Thus, on the new update, you would just have to add this permission.

    Now rather than create the database, create a YAML file. Populate it with UUIDs. One per line. As players create a shop it increments a value on that line one time per creation and decrement one time per deletion. Now yes, already made shops WOULD not be counted here, so you would have to remove them all to use this feature accurately however its a much simpler solution and easier to maintain.

    @asmit119: Go Well, there is one already made:

    But if you'd like to create it yourself - go for it. The main reason it's not in ChestShop yet is backwards compatibility - I'd have to add all the shops to some kind of database.

    @marc050301: Go "Shop owner doesn't have enough money" is an issue with your economy setup. I'm not sure whether Essentials Eco supports creating accounts.

    Hey there, Im having an issue with a Fake Account for selling saying "Shop Owner doesnt have enough money" I have essentials eco running and vault. Maybe vault is being an issue? Im not 100% sure on this, If you could help me, it would be much appreciated,

    @rcs2112: Go

    Have you put out all the permissions? Does the log say anything?

    @speedfreak07: Go That's a hard question for me to answer. Since ChestShop is basically compatible with all Bukkit versions that support UUIDs, the only thing limiting the compatibility might be Spigot itself. I guess that it should be fine, unless Spigot 1.7.10 has some hidden bugs which could prevent ChestShop from working.

    Shops are working perfectly for me on spigot 1.8.3

    I admin a prison server (spigot 1.7.10) that also allows 1.8 players to join the server. If i update the plugin to the latest version of chestshop will it work? Basically, will the latest version of this plugin run on a 1.7.10 server. I am currently battling a bug where players can other peoples chests if its a double-chest and they have an item in there hand. (on plots)
