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

    Doesn't work. Players have correct permission nodes, it says sign created - player's still cant buy or sell. No Error message.

    @Acrobot: Go

    Im not using Mac on the client or server, they are both windows (10 and 2008 server). Also I have the latest java on both (1.8.0_51-b16) and only one version (but both 32 and 64). the sign have worked before, but i did try to update them and it says "shop created" in the chat and it add a big M if I type map:X or if I use the id for map it adds "Map". It does not add any blank characters ether. So the creation of the shop works, and a few times the shop also works. It also seems to work if I am OP, but if i am not I dont even get a message if im not. Another ting if i click the sell button it shows up an message that I cant sell (since its a buy-only sign).

    What im trying to sell its created maps with a specific id, but i have also tried book and quill and its the same problem.

    EDIT: I found the problem. It was the spawnprotection in vanilla minecraft that stoped me from buying. when I changed it to 0 it worked :).

    Will this error cause any issues? will players be able to create/buy/sell without an issue?

    I have recently been contacted as a server owner concerning a chestshop exploit where players could put a specific series of numbers and letters on a sign to get anything they wanted, this exploit exists in multiple versions of chestshop from my understanding.

    Any of you looking for a fix to this issue, that may be using chestshop on an Attack of the Bteam or another server running a 1.6.4 version of minecraft, will be happy to know there is a very simple solution.

    Use the 3.7.9 version of chestshop, its that simple.

    Have a nice day,

    I'm getting the same error marubal21. I've used chestshop for ages, and suddenly people tell me they can't sell any more.

    Looking at the comments, many people seem to have this issue suddenly.
