The Predecessors

Showcase was abandoned. Chestshop needed a display, with signs whose order you could never remember. SCS has too many commands. I'm yet to find someone who uses essentials shops.

Don't get me wrong though, they're all awesome plugins each in a few ways.


So, I set out to write this. QuickShop. QuickShop is a shop plugin, that allows players to sell items from a chest with no commands. It allows players to purchase any number of items easily. In fact, this plugin doesn't even have any commands that a player would ever need!


  • Easy to use
  • Togglable Display Item on top of chest
  • NBT Data, Enchants, Tool Damage, Potion and Mob Egg support
  • Unlimited chest support
  • Blacklist support & bypass permissions
  • Shops that buy items and sell items at the same time are possible (Using double chests)
  • Herochat support
  • Checks a player can open a chest before letting them create a shop!

Calculating Economy Prices

Vagrant326 has created an Excel spreadsheet that allows you to calculate prices for a market, if you're looking to set one up! It takes a few minutes to setup the basic material prices, and once done, will tell you the appropriate value for almost any material! http://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/how-to-create-stable-prices-system-on-your-server/

Hi, I'm an 19 year old University student studying Software Engineering. I spend my time writing code that I receive practically no reward for other than people asking questions I've answered a hundred times before. I know server Admin's and Owners aren't the richest of people - But if you're feeling particularly generous, I always appreciate any amount for the time and patience I put into coding Bukkit plugins.

    There are quite a few updates for this on Github

    Pity someone couldn't compile them and put them up on here, some are fairly recent

    If only Netherfoam would allow it ?

    I guess the dev doesn't care about the plugin (Last active Jun 23) so anyone else that can take it up and update much as possible (UUID Aware)? It would be greatly appriciated

    I would love to see an update that perhaps has a toggle option that prevents stacking of items above their normal stack amount. Players can use this technique to stack potions or other items which is unwanted behavior in certain situations.

    So no one is going to update this plugin anymore? I'm surprised! It's far better than the others, I wish I'd had it two years ago when we first built our server lol. I hope you reconsider and reactivate, with all this eula business we're going to be doing a big revamping of the server and I'd like quick shop to be a part of it.
