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 :-) ).

    As far as we know, multiple currencies are not supported in Vault, and therefore, we do not support it.

    Can someone explain how to use multi-world shops? IE: how to use a shop for one world only, money only going to that world's account.

    (most have an issue that send money to the player, and the player gets the money in the world he is currently in, not the world the shop is in. this is not beneficial for multi-worlds with different economic structures. A more popular world can easily deflate if older players are in a newer world in other words, a bad result. the expected outcome is to have money transfer only to the world the trade occurs in)

    @GodsDead: Go

    We have never heard of this problem. Can you please create a ticket, and make sure to list the economy plugin and vault versions you are using? It would also be helpful to have server specs. Thanks!

    Can we get a fix for the [share] sign lagging the entire server for 10 seaconds every time its used, its been like that since I first tried signshop, over multiple versions & multiple versions of spigot too, It cant be used as each time every single player on the server is frozen for about 10 seconds, completely, Seems dramatic since its only paying a second player.

    How do you get unlimited items in the chest, so you don't have to stock up?

    @weezy234: Go

    You can always use !player or !owner in place of the username for the buyer, or owner of the shop, respectively. And if that doesn't work for you, you have the option of creating your own custom command signs in the config. Make sure to read our Quick Reference for more information about our !variables and command signs.
