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

Permission nodes

Description*shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:*create all types of shops any item from shop any item to shop

    "No, I cannot make it not handle it. Really the issue is not with ChestShop. As you can see, it takes 7.23 ms to process an event - a really short time."
    "Average Players: 10.42 - Average TPS: 13.15"
    "ChestShop v3.8.10 Total: 39.452 s Pct: 16.84%"

    And Acrobot claims the issue isn't with ChestShop...
    This is ridiculous. SignBreak::onSign is being called with every physics event. This needs to be addressed. Multiple people are having the same exact issue. If you insist on using BlockPhysicsEvent, at least have it trigger only when sand and gravel fall, instead of every time a piece of redstone turns on and off or vines grow.

    The plugin dev hasn't responded to my ticket in a while. Anyone else have a solution to this 16 characters long username problem?

    Just wondering if I can get the chestshop worldguard flag working in 1.8 (NMS version v1_8_R2)...

    I don't get a stacktrace on load and worldguard simply tells me that the flag "chestshop" doesn't exist.

    This is due to Hoppers, restrict/remove them.

    We get this SQL exception from ChestShop every time a certain player connects:

    Spigot: 1.8.7 ChestShop: 3.8.8

    I love this plugin. It works as intended and is simple and intuitive. I have a question, now- is it possible for this shop to sell items created by another plugin? So if I have plugin y that lets you create an item x, will this allow people to sell/buy item x?
