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 :-) ).

    Tickets don't just disappear. Make sure to check for it in the closed issues (by using the filter on the ticket overview page). I usually clean up the tickets whenever we are releasing a new version. In your case you can use the latest version of SignShop with 1.6.4. I'm pretty sure Essentials will work with newer versions as well, but I certainly haven't tested it. I THINK as long as you are running above version 1.12 of Essentials, SignShop should work properly. we will be releasing SignShop 2.9.1 tomorrow after it is tested. You can grab the untested version from our dev builds, or use the 2.9.0 version which should resolve your issue.

    So.. my ticket disappeared, today. Is there a fix or what? Or do you not care about the 1.6.4 versions anymore and people should just update? I have no answers right now.

    @Chronicninja1: Go

    The easiest way is probably by using a plugin such as GoldIsMoney or Gringotts, which allows you to use those as currency, but there are also Trade signs, which will allow you to trade one item for another.

    Say i have a kitpvp server and instead of getting money when they kill people. What if i gave them diamonds? Is there a way i can set the signshop up to have them trade those diamonds for xp,bows,arrows,swords,gear,etc....?

    @Enderman09871234: Go

    Are you getting any errors in your console related to Signshop?
    Are you hitting both the sign and the chest with redstone? Chest first, sign second?
    Is there anything in the chest?
    Did you watch the tutorial (
    And did you read our FAQ (

    @zrocweb: Go

    Correct. The number will not be put on the sign. That number can be changed in the Essentials config, and SignShop wouldn't know to change all the signs, which could lead to inaccurate prices on the sign.

    Hello. Was wondering if this is a bug or its just me. When using the [worth] on the 4th line of sign the sign just reads [worth] instead of displaying the Essentials.Worth.yaml items value. It does calculate the value if your left click the sign it will show there. Just will not show on the sign.

    I am using the lateset SignShop as well as The Latest Bukkit. I've tried different versions of bukkit as well as signshop and they all do this!!
