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 :-) ).

    How do the color codes in the config?

    Not directly, as they are considered different types of items. What you could try is making a sign with [worth] on the 4th line, and setting the price for heads in Essentials' worth.yml to all be the same amount, and remove everything else. I think that will work for your purposes. Don't forget to set the option in our config to true to enable price from worth.

    Love your plugin. I have been using it for almost a year now. Got a question. Is there a way to create a single iSell shop that will buy back all types of heads?

    Alright I'm going to search another plugin for this feature then.

    Thanks anyway.

    It is probably running out of a certain type of item, which won't allow the slot machine to work.

    I do read the FAQ and searched a lot in Google. However the slot sign just not *random* out of stock, it is *keeping* out of stock right after the first purchase. It can be purchased again using ink sak to update but still could be purchased only once.

    Hi there,

    I created a slot sign and for the first time it works, but it keeps out of stock after first purchase.

    I'm using spigot 1.8.8 and signshop 2.11.0

    Is anything goes wrong?

    colors.yml is used to describe dyed colors. Because you can make leather armor a bunch of different colors, it's a more human readable way to describe the color other than a bunch of numbers.
