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

    @Bronzeteufel: Go

    +1 That event also lags my server. Very annoying, expecially when there are WE changes or Redstone interactions.

    Is there a way to limit the amount of chestshops a player can create?

    Thanks in advance

    Found some problems where players changed their name, but their shop signs were gold, however they are able to use the chests, but the selling or buying goes to a balance of their old IGN, essentially their balance is not effected at all in the new name.

    I had to change all the shop signs to their new IGN, then it worked.

    So they had the perms to use the chest, but their balance did not update.

    I have encountered an issue recently where chest shop and movecraft interfer with each other. I have no idea why this is but when you have movecraft installed and you are moving on a movecraft ship you are not able to type... However when chestshop is removed the issue is fixed. It is like chesshop has an interference with Minecrafts chat or typing mechanics. Any way to fix this?
