I released my first Android game, would you mind giving it a go?


A simple, yet very powerful system for making physical shops using signs and chests.

It's never been that easy to create shops! With features like shop protection and anti-lag protection, you won't have to worry about your server's economy anymore!

"Just works"! Don't worry about your economy plugin, ChestShop supports all of them with Vault).

The plugin by default submits anonymous stats about your server (player count, plugin/server version and type) to a public statistics website - - in order to provide the developers with usage information. If you wish to opt out, you can do so in the PluginMetrics/config.yml file. It also features an auto-update feature, which can be turned off in the config.

Additional modules for ChestShop:

Using shops

It's easy! Just right-click the sign to buy, left-click to sell. (You can configure the buttons in the config file!)

How to create a shop

Player shop

Place a chest on the ground
Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)
On the sign, write:Sign
First line will be filled by the plugin automatically
Price line is a combination of buy and sell prices. You need to have a price indicator (like 'B' - price that will apply to items BOUGHT by PLAYERS - or 'S' - the SELL price) near the price - the prices are separated by a colon (:)Some of the possible price combinations: "B 5:5 S", "B 5", "S free"
You can find out the name of the item you're holding by doing /iteminfo
For exampleExample sign
A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from AcrobotPL

Admin Shop - shop with unlimited items

Firstly, you've got to be sure that you've the ChestShop.admin permission / you are an OP. To make an Admin Shop, simply put "Admin Shop" (configurable in config.yml) on the first line of the sign.


Here is a list of player-made translations: Translation list

    @BurnseyBoi: Go Hmm...
    Are you sure you didn't paste any old value there?

    This is REALLY weird, and I have no idea what's going on....

    @np98765: Go Well, I thought it was working...
    For now, use 3.39, I'll fix that soon.

    I also have this error with v3.40

    I deleted the config and allowed it to regenerate it, and the error disappeared. As long as the config was untouched, the error is non-existant. As soon as I edit the config, the error shows up. All I did was open the file in notepad++, change a few true and false entries, and save it.

    @Acrobot: Go

    I am running WorldGuard, and double chests can't be created at all... Protected region or not.

    Is there a Worldguard setting or something??

    @np98765: Go "*" permission doesn't work with Bukkit, and can you tell me if you're running WorldGuard and is the double chest being created in the "wild", or in a region?

    I have an issue with double chests. No one, not even ops or people with the '*' permission can create double chests!

    It says: "[Shop] You don't have permission to do that" or similar."

    @j2ther: Go No, there isn't, however shop position is saved in the log, so you can just go there.

    Is there an easy way to delete a players ChestShops? So lets say a player gets banned, instead of going around and removing all the signs is there an easy way to just purge all their shops?

    @ThoLav: Go Well:

    - MySQL is supported, but I don't know if it works. Just edit bukkit.yml to suit your needs. - Statistics webpage can already be made using ChestShop.

    it would be fine if you could support mysql database, for shops and logging.

    1. It would be a bit faster on large servers.

    2. Statitics and such things could be dislplayed on websites.

    What du you think about?

    If I had helped you, a like would be nice. Thank you.

    Have a nice day,
