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

Permission nodes

Description*shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:*create all types of shops any item from shop any item to shop

    @Acrobot: Go

    Hey there again. No, the database is on the localhost. I saw the source code from the method that is causing delay and found nothing. Gotta take a look deeper.

    Yeah i got world guard. I have tried to make double chest inside world guard region, towny and "the wild" (no regions). Non of them worked, always gets the "[shop] you dont got permissions...". I alos use the latest dev build of bukitt, deadbolt 2.1.2 (the latest version dont work that well for me.), latest dev build of world guard and last stable release of towny

    @clownfish8 I think you can use every iconomy account, i use my towny account which is town-"TownNAME" (ex. town-ludo) and it works great.

    Is it possible to to make a shared iconomy account and use it with chestshops. So 2 players could co-own a shop and access the $ together?
