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.

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 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.

ok so my chest shop is broke i am owner/op and i can create the shop it says shop successfully created but when someone righ clicks they cant buy from it and yes i have all perms dont it worked befor i updated it. i am on the latest build of bukkit (1597) and the newest chest shop and i use iconomy
Would it ever be possible for sign color capability?
@Flenix1 Well, that's exactly what OddItem does :) You can use OddItem with ChestShop too.
Out of interest in the new version it says something about "Another Name" - does that mean we can change the name of what appears?
If not, could you maybe add a config file where we put item:Data numbers, then what it should appear as? Would be AMAZING for SpoutMaterials guys, so I can have "Redstone Dagger" instead of 318:1203 or whatever :P
Ah sorry, i am also using iConomy 5.01 with the latest bukkit build at present...
@datwerd86 The item in hand it probably Piston base:6, so you might want to try that.
ive posted this on the chestshop main thread also
Pistons cannot be sold back to shops Sticky or Regular They can be bought but not sold
cs version 3.31 cb version 1.0.1-R1-b1597
@asofold Sorry, was referring to iConomy, not this plugin.
@Acrobot Oh cool, thanks for the info :)
@Sacredox Hey :) The plugin supports all plugins supported by Register (iCo, BOSE, Essentials, MultiCurrency), but it will be more soon, as I plan on switching to Vault. I want to do it the simplest way for server owners, so I'll probably just switch to built-in register if the Vault isn't found on the server. If you've found any bug in my plugin, just report it, and if you've found any in iCo, I recommend using 5.0.1 - it's probably the most stable one.
@asofold Thanks :)
(Also, I'm writing this for the 3rd time, as there is something wrong with BukkitDev)
Sounds dont lead you to the right plugin :)
How can this be inactive? Check the dates of releases ad chat with the owner...
Almost every plugin has bugs, question is how severe they are and how fast they get fixed...
I like how this plugin works! Thank you!
Does it only support iconomy? Because I fear that has gone inactive and has bugs by the sounds of it. So I was thinking of using something else but don't want to miss out on this plugin so I haven't yet. Does this support or will it ever support Vault?
@Timberman The MySQL causes this, as it's probably on an external server. You can put higher interval in config, but you may still want to switch to local database.
My Server uses you Chestshop! Some Players selling single items. if players keep klicking the sings rapidly, the entire server freezes for about 1 up to 5 secs!!!
How can that be?
Using Chestshop with iconomy (mysql)
@bassbeast83 Hmm... Really weird error. You should be fine with turning off the database at the moment, but I have no clue why it would happen. It's something to do with EBeans - the database handler.
@deleted_7536780 I have no clue why it happens. Could you provide more info?
@malymatek Yeah. An old version. Could you update it?
git-bukkit-1.8.1-R4-11g696ba64-b1473jnks (MC: 1.0.0)
i keep getting this...

@ConnectCraft You should create a shell script then :) Just make it so it copies the file to the webserver every X minutes.
@malymatek And which CraftBukkit version? (Type /version in chat)
Is there a way to log the webpage thingy in a db, or create that website on another server? cause my gameserver and my webserver are not on the same server.
