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 :-) ).

    @SafiraHart: Go

    Ah, you need 2 separate chests. One for the item you want, and one for the item you are giving away.

    @ReeferX7: Go

    You can setup a sign to buy an inventory of stone, and if they don't have an inventory, it will buy whatever they have, and give a cut of the price. Just set AllowVariableAmounts in the config to true.

    I really love your plug in. I have played with it a lot on the server my husband and I run. However I am having a small issue. I am trying to set up a trade sign using the [itrade] sign and the directions in game. It says to place the item you want the player to give in the chest. Then punch the chest.  Then place the item you want to give the player in exchange and punch the chest and sign. When i punch the chest a second time it removes the first punch.  Could you please make a tutorial or explain better how to set up a trade sign?

    @ReeferX7: Go

    I'm not sure what you are trying to do. You can definitely make custom signs though.

    @Toxicterror1991: Go

    2.9.1 is backwards compatible to 1.4.5, so you should be good there.

    @NinjarakuPwnz: Go

    Left clicking a sign tells you what it's actually selling/buying.

    how will players know if a shop owner didn't put a description on the sign for example, 60 gold blocks but set the sign to scam them and just give 1 cobble for a ton of money?

    does the newest signshop 2.9.1 (for 1.7.9) also run on 1.7.2 bukkit servers? has anyone tested this yet?
