ChestShop (iConomyChestShop)

Acrobot released his first Android game, would you mind giving it a go?


  Crowdin localization percentage  

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 ( and 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.

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
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

Resulting Shop Example sign
  A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from Phoenix616

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!


The latest builds include translations for many languages. They are shipped with the plugin. If you want to help out translating messages check out the ChestShop Crowdin project!

  • /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)

Permission nodes

  Description* shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:*

create all types of shops buy any item from shop sell any item to shop
ChestShop.mod open any shop chest
ChestShop.admin open any shop chest, destroy stores, create (admin) shops

A full list of permission nodes


Besides defining which shops a player can create via permission you can also configure almost any aspect about the plugin in the automatically generated yml files. The more general settings are in the config.yml (with explaining comments), setting minimum/maximum prices is done via the priceLimits.yml and setting up admin shop discounts is done via the discounts.yml.
Please make sure to look through the generated configurations and see if the default settings are to your liking and fit your setup! Some of them (e.g. the IGNORE_ACCESS_PERMS) might result in shops seemingly not work for you if you are op or are in the wrong WorldGuard region, check that before reporting an issue!

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.
