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 :-) ).

    What a great plugin. But i have a bug / exploit that player can stole other player chest by left click on the chest and right click at the sign that player just make to stole the item in the chest. example :

    A left click the chest player B with redstone, then A making a sign : [Buy] Diamond 1 0. Then A left click the sign with redstone. then A right click the sign to stole B chest and A got a free diamond by making that sign.

    Sounds like an old bug we had. This should be fixed in the most recent versions of SignShop.

    Okay I found a issue with sign shop. so I a player made a normal buy sign for 1 cobble. the price he put maxes out the sign with 9999999 for price. then hes able to break the sign with his fist once he does. he get money for some odd reason. also if he does 1 less 9 and breaks it. it takes away money but does not give him a item.

    sign set up: [buy] 1 cobble $99999999999

    when doing it this we he gets the money on break. but this way. sign set up:

    [buy] 1 cobble $9999999999

    takes away money.

    Can you edit the Prefix text? So that it says "PrisonShop" instead of SignShop for example :<
