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

    Okay guys, I don't know what's going on, but I can say this:

    ChestShop is working perfectly fine for me on Spigot 1.8. I made sure to update to the latest (and remember it's backwards compatible) version of Java from Oracle. If you're using a Linux box based on Ubuntu, remember they ship with IcedTea as their default Java VM. Switching to Oracle Java 8 helped me get rid of the server shop bug where it ran out of money. If you don't know how to set up JRE 8 on your server machine then you should not be running a server. Also install the JDK 8 if you intend on writing plugins.

    I had issues with this and a few other plugins before updating my Java. Everyone please update to Java 8 and see if your problems persist.

    ONE LAST THING: If you're using 1.8 and Essentials, be sure to get the Essentials from Spigot forum regarding the 1.8 update. Bukkit, CraftBukkit & Spigot 1.8

    Yesterday updated from 1.7.10 to 1.8 and now the signs are not responding anymore. No error messages in console. I think it has to be with the item ID's.... and there are still around 500 command blocks waiting for me to change the name.... i think thats here the same problem atm :P

    @skatesdsq: Go

    Make sure you have vault. Other than that it should be working (with the Admin Shop bug still going strong and no one seems to be addressing it)

    I still have an issue with the shop saying there isn't enough money. This is for a server shop, I'm using CraftConomy, unlimited money assigned to admin shop owner. Could someone PLEASE tell me how to fix this? It's the only reasonable shop plugin and this is driving me nuts because trading with admin shop is the only way on my server to make money! Please someone help!
