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

    @Acrobot: Go Hi,

    I'm getting a pretty high number on SignBreak ( Could that be because my users.db is 3mb? If so, is there a possibility to run mysql and would that resolve the issue?

    Thanks in advance for your answer, Kind regards, DRC

    @thequestingbeast: Go If the shop works fine, it might be your economy plugin. Which one of them are you using?

    @FriendsCraft: Go Do you have Vault installed?

    @Adomas05: Go Thank you for the kind words :D

    @Dyllaann: Go

    Before any of you guys comment your errors, you should check if your Vault is updated!

    I had this - but I fixed it by updating Vault. I had an outdated version of it.

    Actually I did this and it returned. Also, the shops work just fine, they just throw that error when someone buys anything.

    Why does not limit me stone's 5 dollars? Where is the problem?

    In this file you can configure maximum and minimum prices for items (When creating a shop). max: buy_price: '988' 3.51 sell_price: '978' 3.52 min: buy_price: '1': 5.00 sell_price: '989' 0.51
