HyperConomy is the all in one economy and shop plugin. It can be a simple chest or sign shop plugin, a Vault compatible economy plugin, a region based shop plugin with many configurable options, or even a complex system of economically competing towns and kingdoms. Any vanilla Minecraft item can be traded in HyperConomy and virtually any custom item can be added as well. Prices can be configured to change dynamically or they can be set as desired. To quickly edit prices and settings you can double click on HyperConomy.jar to access the GUI editor. HyperConomy has many features including things such as item price linking and showcase style item displays. Read below or check out the wiki for more information.

Versions and Development Builds

  • Recommended builds are marked with [RB] and are generally thought to be stable and bug free.
  • Builds marked as [Beta] are as bug free as possible, but often have large code changes which may result in the appearance of new bugs.
  • Builds marked as [Dev] are development builds that I've decided to upload to BukkitDev. I may upload dev builds on occasion to provide easy access because Bukkit staff does not allow linking to development builds.
  • Development builds may contain bugs as I work on releasing a new [Beta] build. They may also contain fixes for bugs found in [Beta] builds. Use these builds if you're looking for a bug fix, or would like to try out a new feature I've just added. Also, feel free to search for bugs in the development builds. Any help with testing is greatly appreciated!
  • Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.
  • The latest development builds can be found here.



  • HyperMerchant
    HyperMerchant is a graphical user interface for your players to use to interact with HyperConomy shops.
    It is also includes the ability to easily create Citizens npc shopkeepers for your HyperConomy shops.
  • HyperConomy Web
    HyperConomy Web creates a web page for HyperConomy, displaying information about all shops, items, and price history. The web page appearance can be customized to fit your server.


New Features, Bugs, Problems, etc.

  • If you have a question, or find a bug, first check the FAQ. I will try to include as many helpful questions and answers as possible.
  • If the FAQ doesn't help, don't hesitate to post your question or make a ticket.
  • If you do find a bug, please include which version of HyperConomy you're using, the full error message or stack trace (if there is one), the version and type of Minecraft server you're running, and an explanation of how to reproduce the bug or what causes the bug.

    <<reply 2816834>>

    Thanks so much for your help!  Would you ever consider accepting bitcoin donations?

    How would you like reports of item default price issues?  I found granite/diorite/andesite prices are too high when using components.  Since netherquartz is one of their components, it makes their price ~$30 each which is way too much when you can find them in huge veins.

    Default value for redsand is $15 which is too high if someone finds that biome, I think.

    Will the high CPU issue go away after it has 7 full days of history?

    Would a "Gap" option be a good idea?  Basically a setting for each item to increase price difference between buy and sell.  It seems players sell lots more than they buy and get money too fast.. when I increase stock/lower the value to decrease how much money they're making, it also makes the item (and component items) too cheap to buy.  Even a Global Gap setting may help solve this issue..  I guess I could just control it with high sales taxes though..

    I know you're busy so I don't expect any changes, these are just ideas :)

    @jaggy80: Go

    For now the solution is either to disable the web page or reduce the time HyperConomy stores history. Had a lot going on recently and haven't had time to fix this yet, but it will be the next thing I work on.

    Thanks for pointing out the price issues. I can fix those in the defaults. Cake can't really be reverse crafted due to the bucket of milk. I can look into the others. I'm guessing some of them were converted to craftables in a recent update and were missed.

    Sorry for so many comments.  Once web was enabled the cpu usage maxes out.  I see it's continually querying mysql with the same query of the HC history table in time order.

    When disabling HC it spams the below message about 30 times:
    [PlugMan] HyperConomy has been disabled.

    Nevermind on the webserver portion.. worked after another restart. I think Dynmap had an issue

  • Avatar of jaggy80 jaggy80 May 23, 2016 at 20:08 UTC - 0 likes

    Love the plugin, couple questions though..

    Trying to enable web server and get this error on build 14: Exception in thread "Thread-697" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet at regalowl.hyperconomy.webpage.WebHandler$1.run(WebHandler.java:68) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    Which I read could be cause servlet-api.jar isn't included in the main jar.. not a programmer so just guessing.

    Also curious why witch and bat spawn eggs are massively more expensive than other spawn eggs?

    Also found craftables: Cake, cactus_green, clay_brick, grassless_dirt, mossy_stone_brick, and moss_stone don't have "components"

    Not currently, but you can hold a book and buy an enchantment which will be transferred to it.

    @timsavage: Go

    Yes, set it to "hyperconomy" if you haven't changed it from the default. Player shops can be attached to any account, including banks.

    @winter4w: Go

    You can set a price floor which will guarantee a minimum price. /hcs floor dirt 1 would set dirt to have a minimum price of $1, for example

    Sorry for the slow response, been extremely busy. I'll work on a fix for this. Thank you for the report.

    @RegalOwl: Go

    With enchantments is it possible to make it spawn in a book instead of enchanting a item?
