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 :-) ).

    Alright, I'll see what I can make of this :)

    There was talk of it at one point, but I don't think anyone actually did it.

    @Devinish: Go

    Ah, of course! That is brilliant.
    Thank you, Devinish.

    With this I can, of course, just see to getting my own version made, so shop owners are able to do e.g. /shop list #, but do you know if any SignShop users have developed upon this and shared such an add-on?

    SignShop does provide a log of all transactions that can be parsed to show statistics. This feature must be enabled in the config, and will generate something like this:

    27/04/2013 20:56:04.678 - [INFO] - Customer: VgamesFTW, Owner: Devinish, Operation: ibuy, Items: 1 Minecart, Price: 25.00 Waffles

    Is it correctly understood that SignShop does not provide statistics to shop owners? E.g. to see a history of who buys- and what they buy from your shop (not just in the split-second the purchase happens).

    If true, how would I go about using your API to create this function?

    Did you try right-clicking?

    I can't sell items items, my [iSell] signs don't work, they don't take my items. It just says "Sell 32 Cobblestone for 64.00?" and it never takes my items, or gives me money. My server is Spigot 1.7.10.

    No just Worldguard, region, flagged it shop-allow and I can make the shop as an OP but I need permissions for normal players to make shops but you don't have that. Btw I only want them to be able to make shops in the region and not everywhere and not other signs like commands or w/e.

    @Si7VdeR: Go

    Do you also have Towny installed?

  • Avatar of Si7VdeR Si7VdeR Nov 08, 2014 at 10:18 UTC - 0 likes

    Just installed this, loving it already but I do have a problem. I want people to only be allowed to create a shop in a region that is flagged allow-shop with worldguard. So I enabled that in the config however people still cant create shops in a region flagged like this.
