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

    I am still trying to figure out why chest shop has stopped working on my 1.5 servers.

    I am trying to run both 3.7.9 or 3.7.8.

    We were running 3.7.8 with no issues until about 2 weeks ago. Suddenly the server stopped reading the plugin. It no longer shows up on the /plugins list.

    We have uninstalled and reinstalled a few times now to see if there was something we could fix that way. It still is not recognizing it at all.

    I know you're having a lot of issues with the most recent update, but I would really love to keep chestshop on my 1.5 servers. If there's anything I can try (other than going back into further versions) I would love to hear about it.

    The reason we don't use older versions is due to the dupe bug. If that's really the only way to make chestshop work again, we might have to move on to something else. :(

    @asmit119: Go

    The shop was working whilst it being 'Adminshop' even with the config set as ' Admin Shop'

    Either way, I tried editing the config and I was still having this issue. The notification in chat still comes up when you buy and sell, it's just the balances are not changing while buying and selling.

    @Rhidzla: Go

    Name the shop properly on top line. Admin Shop is what the CONFIG calls for, not Adminshop, you can either edit config and change it to Adminshop or change all signs to Admin Shop.

    Noticed that Gunpowder is named Sulphur which causes trouble like "Invalid item id" cause people tend to write "Gunpowder" on the sign. Also few times people are asking what the fuck is Suplhur.
