starVersion 2.3 is now available!

AShops allows players to sell and buy items with a chest. Unlike many other shop plugins, it doesn't use signs to represent a shop offer. Instead, it uses chest inventories and item descriptions and thereby makes possible to sell or buy (or both) items of different types using only a single chest. It means less chests and time spent on creating shops. Using description as an offer details source makes shopping also more friendly than reading a raw text from a sign, and by representing an offer as a real item, not only it is easier to find what you need, but it also allows you to sell/buy the exact item you have in your inventory, with all data it contains.

What's new in 2.0?

  • New shop interface! You don't have to use commands anymore. (see the next section for more info)
  • Transaction notifications work even when a shop owner is offline.
  • + old features: income taxes, shops limits, minimal price limits, server shop account.

How to use the new interface?

  • To create a new shop you have to place a chest and attach a sign to it or above it. For a player shop set first line to :as:, for a server shop: :ass:.
  • To manage your shop (add offer, open/close it, remove it) shift-right-click on the sign and use menu icons. Read icon descriptions for more info on manager options.
  • To sell/buy items from other players' shops left click on a shop sign and then on an item you want to buy/sell. Read icons' descriptions for more info on trade options.
  • To load/collect items from/to your shop left click on a shop sign and then on an offer's icon. If you manage other players' shops or server shops, you will have to use a right mouse button to manage an offer.
  • You still can use commands to create and manage shops. Use /ashops command to list all available commands.

How to install this plugin?

  1. Place AShops.jar file in the /plugins/ folder.
  2. Set database to MySQL in the bukkit.yml file in a server main directory.

To the Users of previous versions

AShops 2.0 is not backward compatible. We changed a database system to more reliable one and now we have to use other structure of tables. AShops doesn't support a flat files storage system anymore - now it works only with MySQL databases and, hopefully, it will support SQLite soon. All features that used WorldEdit will be released as a separate file.

    I have a problem! I have a region called market, with the flags: Build: deny, Use: allow, allow-shop: allow But when i try to create a shop, worldguard canceling it.

    I have tried chest-protection disabled, but worldguard stoped it again.

    @Syfers96: Go

    What file do you mean?

    @graveXrobber: Go

    0.3 isn't available to download yet. It waits for approval from the Bukkit staff and I'm not sure if they'll do this before Monday.

    ashops.player is the permission you need. It will allow them to create shops, remove them and buy and sell in other players' shops.

    Looking at the permission nodes, doesnt seem like there is a "safe way" to give normal players access to create a shop. If im over looking it I apologize.

    Thanks, however these messages won't be used yet. I thought I will be able to create a cool menu with inventories, but it's not possible at the moment to do what I need. And I don't want to modify craftbukkit, because it would make this plugin version-dependent.
