WebAuctionPlus 1.1.3

WebAuctionPlus - eBay for Minecraft!

A minecraft/bukkit shop plugin for your website! This is a rewrite of the original WebAuction with many new features and improvements. I've made to many improvements to the code to list on one page. Many of my plans require big changes and a lot of new code. As with any new code, bugs are to be expected, so please bare with me and report any bugs you come across.

Note: It is strongly recommended you backup your database before using or updating this plugin. Some of the bug fixes and performance improvements I'm making require big changes to the database. The WebAuctionPlus plugin will convert and update the database automatically the first time it's run.

New virtual inventory MailBox has been added with the update of Minecraft 1.3 and WebAuctionPlus 1.1. When a player right clicks on a MailBox sign, it opens up their virtual mailbox inventory and locks their website account to prevent item dups. When they close their mailbox, it updates their inventory and unlocks their website account. NOTE: This feature is new and running single threaded. If you experience lag related to this, I can see what I can do to make it multi-threaded.

Requires: Vault - http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/vault/

Requires: Web server with PHP and MySQL

Optional: SignLink - http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/signlink/

Currently supported languages

If you'd like this plugin translated to another language, feel free to download the en.yml file from the link above, translate it to your own language, and send it to me.


WebAuctionPlus signs can be created by placing a sign with [WebAuction], [WebAuction+], or [wa] on the first line. Case doesn't matter, the plugin will fix it for you.

Note: you cannot use the deposit mailbox sign while in creative mode. this shouldn't ever be needed in the normal operation of the plugin, so as a general protection, it's always denied.

Note: withdraw mailbox signs can now have a quantity of stacks on the last line, or leave it blank for all mail.

WebAuctionPlus Signs

  • %waTitle - items name
  • %waPrice - price each
  • %waSeller - sellers name
  • %waType - Buy Now or Auction

Plugin Usage


I too am leaving

As I've said in comments, I don't agree with the mojang buyout. as much as I've enjoyed working on this plugin and want to see it continue, I'm no longer doing all the work. MarioG1 has stepped up to work on the plugin. I may still help somewhat if he wants, but I'm passing the torch to him as the lead. good luck, hope you write some good code and features.

    If you are using 1.2.6 the item name, lore and the enchantments will not be removed. Any other custom NBT data is lost.

    In the next release 1.2.7 all custom Item data will stay on the item but i have no eta of 1.2.7 yet.

    Forgive me if this has been answered previously, but the search function of this site didn't show me the info I was hoping for, so going to go ahead and ask anyway. If someone posts an item with custom metadata (like a slimefun item for example) into the webauction, does that metadata stay intact for the buyer, or does it revert to the default item id? Example: Billy wishes to sell a stack of 18 karat slimefun gold ingots, which share the same item id as a vanilla gold ingot but contains metadata defining its name and properties. Would this be posted as a vanilla ingot? Would it keep its metadata intact so that the buyer would be getting their money's worth (as a vanilla ingot would be worth far less than a slimefun ingot of that quality.) Thank you for your time and consideration to this response.
