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

Permission nodes

    I have a question. Is this the ChestShop plugin that when you do /iteminfo it gives you a special id to go along with the item if there is an enchant?

    Hello Acrobot, I have a question, are you goin to port ChestShop to Sponge? That would be great :)

    @Acrobot: Go

    You could switch using offline players to a new object just for storing uuid - name combinations. Then if you need a name from the uuid create an offline player object and then cache the result for use later. Possibly also a system where if a user is more than x hours old you remove it from the cache.

    @Miyukifei: Go The plugin saves the exact metadata Bukkit feeds to it. If the metadata does not match, a new sub-id is created.

    @DeathNote68: Go You have configured the database in bukkit.yml wrongly.

    @bordalandsdude191: Go /iteminfo

    @2Fast08: Go Well, to be quite honest, without source code of the server I'm not able to do anything. And since they took it down - well, I cannot do anything but guess, and I am not going to do that.

    It works but it can tend to have large delays.

    Although, the shops work fine.

    Is there a way to sell items with certain lore and name? I have a HP plugin and I want to sell an elder wand but it needs a certain lore and name to work.
