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

    Getting a strange issue that seems to have started occurring out of the blue. Many of my players, when attempting to place a chestshop sign on a chest, are receiving the error, "You can't make a shop here". I've tried disabling the option in the config to prevent multiple shops in one location, but that hasn't helped. They have the correct permissions so I'm at a loss.

    How do I create a chest shop, which is a single chest which you put everything in and then exit it, and then it gives you the money for all the items?

    A notification when a user buys from your shop would be great, and I know you plan to implement this. Hopefully you can get this out soon. Also, admin shops don't seem to work with custom items. I'm not sure if it's just me or if it just isn't implemented yet. Thanks!

    @silentspectr: Go

    Yes, it does support lores, enchantments and custom item displaynames.

    @KazTheHusky: Go

    The default name of the admin shop is "Admin Shop", you are missing a space there.

    @Frodaxx: Go

    Id does to the buyer and shop owner, do you mean as a broadcast to everyone? That might be better of in a small, separate plugin that listens on the buy transaction event.

    @SCURRR: Go

    ChestShop already uses UUIDs in the newer versions. - because why not?

    Hi does this plugin supports lored items ? or only normal ones ?

    I'm having problems with this plugin. Everything is configured properly, but after creating an AdminShop, players are unable to interact with the adminshops. It's not WorldGuard flags, already checked that, and ChestShop does give the "shop created successfully" message. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Example shop I made AdminShop 1 B 500:50 S 306 It's an Iron Helmet, and for whatever reason it's not able to be purchased.
