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 :-) ).

    Did that and I don't get anything. The sign shops themselves work. Just seems to be the hotel plugin itself. Not to say I am not doing something wrong, but just trying to see what that might be. My sign acts as if it was configured properly.

    I must be doing something wrong, but I cannot seem to get the hotel plugin working. When I punch the sign it says "Pay 0 dollars to rent the room for 5 hours' or something similar to that, but it never actually lets me into the room. It isn't giving me any way to confirm that I want to rent the room.

    It won't work by default with infinite shops, because the money disappears and spawns out of thin air. What you will need to do is add giveOwnerMoney and takeOwnerMoney to these signs in the config, so they will do those operations, then link the bank signs. Check out the Quick Reference for more info on custom signs.

    Does that include infinite item shops? I haven't had a chance to test just yet. Sounds promising, though ^_^

    It would depend on how your economy plugin works. Most of the time, players need to have money in their "wallet" in order to spend it, and can't spend it right out of their bank account. SignShop does have a way to put sign profits directly into a bank account using a [Bank] sign.


    Punch this with redstone, then your shop sign, and it will allow you to share 100% of the profits from your shop into your bank. You can also use numbers other than 100. If you want 10% to go to your wallet, and 90% to go to your bank account, you can put 90 on the 4th line of the sign.

    I've looked through all the documentation and configuration, but I can't seem to find anything on setting up a main bank/player account to receive/give money from/to for infinite shop signs. Is this not a current feature?

    My server doesnt like to spawn money from thin air. We have a set amount of it in circulation, so even the main account (government, if you will) can become broke.

    If this is not a current feature, could I make an official request that it be added at least as an optional feature?

    Also, wanted to mention my Pl3xSigns plugin works lovely with this plugin. I am able to edit the shop signs easily without the need for ink sacs or other signs. ^_^

    @QuickScopeSans: Go

    You don't need to give users any special permissions to use signs. Usually this means they are prevented from clicking on something because of block protection or something.

    Ayeo, sooooo i put it in my plugins folder everything is so good until defaults can not use the shop for some reason i put - signshop.signs.* so that they can use it but it doesnt work for them!

    Please add mod compatibility! Like, a block list I can set which it will check for items in that block's NBT.
