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 :-) ).

    You can fill up the chest that your sign puts items into. So if you only wanted to buy 3 stacks of cobblestone, just fill the other slots of the chest with dirt or something, and leave 3 open. Then when the chest fills up, the sign will turn red and say you are overstocked.

    Is it possible to create a limit to the amount of things people can sell to you? As in.. limit the amount of money the sign is to receive. This could prevent bankruptcy and allows for more finetuned shop creation.

    Basically, have the money handled by the sign itself. (like with Essentials' tradesigns.)

    Unfortunately Vault does not support multiple economies, so neither does SignShop.

    Hello, I am wondering if this amazing economy plugin can work with multiple currencies from systems like CraftConomy.

    Say we have the $ and the Waffle?

    Looks like it has something to do with Skript. We'll take a look. I made a ticket out of your comment for when we get more information.

    @MinecraftAdmin: Go

    You COULD delete the sellers.yml and player.db and let them regenerate. This would mean all shops would have to be relinked, however.
