I am not responding to bug reports in the comments. Please create a ticket here!

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

    Just posted a ticked with a bad bug for all server owners...

    if your users got permission to create Colored Signs, they can create Servershops...

    Works with essentials and some other Sign color plugins...

    Acrobot closed my first ticket (its not the Sign color plugins fault)... but this needs to be fixed

    Yes! this has to be fixed. When players change their mc name. The sign on the chest still has their old name resulting in them having no access to the chest they created before changing their name

    Please add UUID support!

    With v3.8.8, people who had changed their username do not have access to their shops.

    While its not worth opening a ticket over. There is a massive cpu spike on player join. Which has been brought up a few times by others.

    running version 3.8.7 atm

    Thank you so much for this amazing update, it'll help out servers so much now with the optimization and removal of non required code. Great update for a great plugin.

    Is this ever going to be updated to add custom aliases? I'm sick of Blue Ink Sac for lapis.
