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.

    @Puttela: Go

    Disable locking of QuickShops in the quickshop config, and force rented regions to protect chests from destruction/hoppers/opening. This means that players will be able to break/open quickshop chests unless ANOTHER plugin stops them (Eg, your rent plugin)

    @kwstoudt: Go

    They work fine, you're likely using Forge. Only tested with *real* bukkit and spigot. No plans for supporting other forks.

    @magius96: Go

    What errors are you getting? It's working fine on my 1.7.5 version server running Spigot.

    I have no plans to continue to maintain it (Well, I do, but I don't have the time and don't want to commit to anything until I know I have the time and a reason to do so).

    I really like this plugin, it makes building shops 100% easier. Problem is that it hasn't been updated in over a year and causes a ton of errors on my server. Is it still being maintained, or should I move on already?

    items won't display on top of chests on MC 1.7.5

    Can you please update or pass this on to someone who would? This is the best shop plugin! Others don't even compare! But we need some bug fixes and the new blocks. Hope you consider this. Thank you for the great plugin!

    I'm using the latest version of Quickshop. I am also using the latest version of simpleregionmarket, as well as world guard. Whenever someone's region time runs out and then someone else buys the stall. They can't delete the sign/chest the quick shop store was on.

    Seems it does, yes.
    The 1.7 blocks and items are not recognized by the plugin though.

    For example, selling acacia wood only displays "wood".

    Sand:1 for red sand, Red Rose:X for all flowers etc ^^.

    @Telemnor: Go

    It's not active, but it's still functional in the latest edition of bukkit.

    Is this project still active? No word from the author.

Should players get perms to create shops by default?
