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.

Latest Features

SignShop v2.10.0

  • Added !cooldownminutesleft, !cooldownhoursleft, !cooldowndaysleft, and !cooldownyearsleft for use in config messages
  • Added support for new types of written books introduced with Minecraft 1.8 (read known caveats below)
  • Changed how XP is calculated in SignShop because it was changed in Minecraft (this means it will be calculated incorrectly for versions of Minecraft prior to 1.8)
  • Fixed [Jukebox] signs not giving money to the owner of the shop (you will have to manually fix this in your configs by adding "giveOwnerMoney" to the shop definition)
  • Fixed rounding of prices to be more accurate
  • Fixed worth not working together with Sell and Buy pricemultipliers.
  • Fixed invalid shop problem when sign breaks and doesn't send an event
  • Fixed config not properly parsing integers, meaning you could only enter doubles for pricemultipliers
  • Fixed a problem with async tasks when reloading the plugin
  • Updated API calls to PlotMe and Worldguard 6

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 :-) ).

    SignShop has built in sign protection. They should not be able to remove your shop unless you have given them permission to do so. I recommend reading our permissions page for more info on that.

    It's probably a setting in a protection plugin / permission issue.
