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.

There appears to be some sort of money exploit if you are using SignShop and Essentials Economy. We are looking into it. For more information, check this ticket.

Latest Features

SignShop v2.8.3

  • Added !permgroup variable to replace !promotefrom
  • Added help messages for Bank, Share, and Restricted signs
  • Changed message system to no longer say you have insufficient items when trying to left click to signs
  • Changed order of Repair sign blocks in default config, so adding {variablecost} now works out of the box
  • Changed AllowUnsafeEnchantments to be enabled by default
  • Improved performance for chunk loading (thanks Maximvdw)
  • Fixed NPE from dynmap
  • Fixed NPE from an empty hand with enchantItemInHand
  • Fixed a server crash from pistons
  • Fixed Essentials [worth] lookup (thanks, in part, to Maximvdw)
  • Removed support for itemframes, as they were causing too many item dupe bugs (read known caveats when downloading!)

Extending SignShop with other Plugins

  • Uses Vault API, so it works with all standard economies (EssentialsEco, iConomy, BOSEconomy, Gringotts, and more) and permission plugins (Permissions 3, bPermissions, PEX, GroupManager, PermissionsBukkit, zPermission (and defaults to OP permissions, if you don't want to use a permission system)).
  • Supports LWC, Lockette, Deadbolt, WorldGuard, Grief Prevention, PlotMe, PreciousStones, LoreLocks, and Residence for chest / sign protection, but SignShop also has built-in sign protection.
  • Use with SignShopGuardian to save your inventory when you die.
  • Use with SignShopHotel to allow players to rent rooms for a period of time.
  • Supports dynmap to show shop locations.
  • Buy and sell custom made guns and weapons using Crackshot. (P.S. Crackshot is awesome!)
  • Supports alternate worlds using Multiverse.
  • Supports the Notifications plugin. SignShop will give a notification whenever a sign is created. This message can be customized in the config.
  • Display the items SignShop is selling by clicking half slabs and using ShowCaseStandalone.
  • Support for custom sign colors using SignColours.
  • Make SignShop run commands for all players online using WildcardCommands.
  • Charge a fee to use, and remotely operate Machinas with MachinaCraft.
  • Can use Towny banks to fund your shops using custom Blocks (Thanks ryvix!).
  • Can restrict shops to WorldGuard regions with the "allow-shop" flag, or Towny shop plots
  • Can convert ChestShop signs to SignShop format by just punching them with redstone.

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 :-) ).

    Why, when I click on the sign, does it not give me the item or the money and says: "Buy 1 emerald for 100?" ? When I click it again it does exactly the same thing! Please help :D

    You can find tickets in the section above the chat. Error messages will show up in your server logs and console, not in game.

    @waflewarrior: Go

    If you have Vault installed, it should work with MineConomy. That said, some users have reported errors with right clicking signs. Make sure to check our tickets if you are having issues.
