Acrobot released his 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"! ChestShop supports almost all economy plugins by using Vault!
(Versions above 3.9.2 also support economy plugins using the Reserve API)
Some known compatible and incompatible economy plugins.
Please check if there are newer development builds before reporting issues!
If you are upgrading from a previous version of ChestShop please make sure to always read the warnings in the file's changelog!
The plugin by default submits anonymous stats about your server (player count, plugin/server version and type) to a public statistics websites (mcstats.org and bstats.org) in order to provide the developers with usage information. If you wish to opt out, you can do so in the PluginMetrics/config.yml and bstats/config.yml files. It also features an auto-update feature, which can be turned off in the config.

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
|Place a chest on the ground|
|Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)|
|On the sign, write:|
|Leave the first line empty. It will be automatically filled with your name by the plugin (if you have the permission ChestShop.admin then you can create shops with the names of other players)||
|Second line is the amount of items to buy or sell|
Third 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"|
The forth line will hold the id/name of the item. Write ? on the sign and the item will be autofilled with the one from the chest or you can click on the sign with the item afterwards.
Optionally you can put the actual name on it. You can find out the name of the item you're holding by doing /iteminfo
|A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from Phoenix616|
If you want you can also take a look at this video tutorial.
Admin Shop - shop with unlimited items
Firstly, you've got to be sure that you've the ChestShop.admin permission or that you are an OP. To make an Admin Shop, simply put "Admin Shop" (configurable in config.yml) on the first line of the sign when creating the shop. Admin Shops do not require a chest!
- /iteminfo - Get information about the item in your hand
- /iteminfo <id/name> - Get information about the item with the given id or name
- /shopinfo - Get information about the looked-at shop
- /csgive <itemcode> [<amount>] [<player>] - Give item with a unique ChestShop code to a player
- /cstoggle - Toggle buy and sell notificiation messages
- /chestshop version - Display the ChestShop version
- /chestshop reload - Reload the ChestShop config and translation messages. (This might not reload some features)
- /csaccess - Toggles ability to buy/sell on shops while having admin/access permissions and normally being ignored
|ChestShop.shop.*||shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:|
create all types of shops
|ChestShop.shop.buy||buy any item from shop|
|ChestShop.shop.sell||sell any item to shop|
|ChestShop.mod||open any shop chest|
|ChestShop.admin||open any shop chest, destroy stores, create (admin) shops|

ChestShop directly hooks into the following plugins to provide additional functionality:
- AuthMe (and forks like AuthMe Reloaded)
- LWC (and forks like LWCX and Modern-LWC)
This resource sends metrics data to McStats and bStats. You can opt-out of metrics for all plugins on your server by changing the settings in the PluginMetrics/config.yml and the bStats/config.yml file if you don't want any data to be send.
Even more information can be found in the old plugin thread on the forums.

For the Admin Shop's is there a way to change the color of the text "Admin Shop" to a color like red so that it stands out more to players?
I'm sorry for the late response. You might be able to use color codes added by some other plugin on the sign itself but that's not something officially supported. (Official support for formatting is planed though)
how do i give admin shop money if i have an admin shop where players can sell their items for money?
The admin shop will have unlimited money. Just make sure to write it like "Admin Shop" (exactly with uppercases and space) if you didn't change it in your config.
I am trying to build something so that the moment someone purchases an item from my chestshop, a piston retracts letting them into an area. How can I detect a chestshop purchase automatically?
You can add a comparator to the chest. It will send a redstone signal whenever a trade occurs.
When i sell something a message appears, that i sold item x for y, but i recieve no money
Please provide your full log.
I want to use this mod with physical items, but emeralds can be exploited and farmed too easily, so how about adding support for diamonds?
ChestShop only hooks into your economy plugin via Vault, it does not manage economy on its own. If you want to use items as an economy look at an economy plugin like Gringotts.
is there a new update for chestshop?
The latest version still works without issues. If you want to test the latest development changes then you can use the dev builds.
Is this plugin compatible with GeyserMC? :)
It's not officially supported but you can disable some security functionality in the config to get it work anyways.
Hi, is there a way to change the price without rebuilding the sign? Thanks
Not with ChestShop directly. But you can use any sign-edit plugin to update the sign and the shop will be correctly updated too.

In reply to feldi01:
That's just saying it couldn't connect to the JenkinsAPI, which does not directly affect the ChestShop's usage. Also, I'd recommend changing from Java8 to Java11 when using Minecraft 1.16. And why are you using 1.16.3 instead of .5?
Is it possible for opped players to buy items from shops?
