SignShop 2 Logo
SignShop allows you to set up physical shops by punching a chest with your items you want to sell, then punching a sign (while holding redstone dust). It's easy to set up, and even easier to customize!

This plugin requires Vault and collects Metrics.

Example SignShop

This is an example of how to set up a [Buy] sign with SignShop. The sign above is linked to a chest containing items. In this example, it will sell an enchanted pickaxe for 600 Waffles (Waffles are our server's currency :-) ).

    @Devinish ah ok, thank you :)

    Take a look on our Minecraft Server. You only need installed Technic Launcher and the Modpack Imba Wimba (can be installed via Technic Launcher) Server IP =

    SignShop does not support NBT data, which those other plugins and mods are probably using.

    Hi there,

    is there a way to repair all Weapons, Armor etc. with the [repair] sign?? cause it seems that i can only repair the vanilla items and not someone from mods or plugins

    It also looks like one of your .yml files was not parsing correctly. Always check your server logs for this sort of stuff. Usually you can figure out the problem pretty quickly. Glad you got it working.

    After tinkering with this again i have found my own problem i launched a second game of minecraft. I had to log out and close all the minecraft browsers i was running and it fixed the issue. Hopefully this helps anyone who was having the same problem. Try completely exiting out of Minecraft to see if that fixes the problem

    Go to the signs: section of the config, and add the cooldown modifier.

    Thanks I did not understand restricted very well . The players loved it for the HOTEL extension in itself. But over all awesome plugin

    The bad news is, you're horribly inept. The good news is, we can fix that. Once you start your server for the first time with SignShop in your plugins folder, the folder with the config file, quick reference, and anything SignShop needs to function will be created. Most plugins work like this. If your folder ISN'T created, then you have some other issue, like the disk being write protected or out of space or something. Let us know if you have any other problems.

    @blinddog1066: Go

    Yeah, so we have what's called a [Restricted] sign. With a [Restricted] sign you list the permission group(s) you want to have access to some other SignShop sign on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines, then punch it with redstone, and punch the sign you want to restrict. You can do this for any number of signs. Most people usually keep the [Restricted] sign nearby, so users know what groups they have to be in in order to use the sign., but it doesn't HAVE to be nearby. Also, you can use the same [Restricted] sign for multiple other signs, like if you wanted to have a bunch of different kits for the same permission group.
