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:|

|ChestShop.shop.buy||buy any item from 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.

A shout-out to Acrobot's friend:
We believe that the music he makes is really stunning - you can decide it for yourself!
If you have an issue then please open a ticket on GitHub or post on SpigotMC.org for faster replies to questions!
Ideally that would be managed via our localization page but I'm unsure how to add new languages there tbh.. You could just PR it on GitHub or link it here and I'll include it :)
Is it possible to give/take money from my account balance when somebody buys/sells using an admin shop?
You can specify the server economy account in the config to do that.
In reply to Phoenix616:
# The name of the economy account which Admin Shops should use and to which all taxes will go
SERVER_ECONOMY_ACCOUNT: "My name"
# The uuid of the economy account for the Admin Shop. Useful for fake accounts as normally only accounts of players work
SERVER_ECONOMY_ACCOUNT_UUID: My UUID
I changed these 2 lines to my account info, but it didn't work. I'm using EssentialsX if that helps.
Please open an issue then and provide all the requested information. (Especially your full config and log file)
Hi...I don´`´``t know why but my configs are not working...I changed things like the name of the admin shop and the cost of creating a new shop but it just does not work...can anybody help me?
Please open an issue and provide all the information requested by the template.
I create shop with this plugin. In chat write shop successfully created, but I don't buy or sell items.
I have a plugin vault. What can I do?
Make sure there are no errors in your log file and that you are testing with normal user permissions (shop owners and people with access permissions will not be able to trade with shops that they have access to by default. Try the /csaccess command or the ignore_access_perms config option)
Is there any config I have to do to make ChestShop interact with my essentials economy? I have vault installed but whenever I use a shop, it says "You bought ___ for $____" but it doesn't add nor deplete my balance.
No, you don't need to set anything up, simply install ChestShop, EssentialsX and Vault and it should hook into that (it should say so in the startup log of ChestShop). Make sure there are no other errors and that you are using the correct plugin versions for your server version.
I'm getting this error but i have already connected to this server multiple times
This is only a warning not an error and its due to there not being a server economy account set. It will still work without it (it will just not move the money of the admin shop to an account) and the warning itself has been removed in the latest dev builds already for the case where its empty as it serves no purpose.
Heya bud, i was just wondering if there was already default values for items set, or is it all decided on. Im looking to make a server but i didnt know wether or not to start deciding on how much each item is actually gonna be worth in the admin shops. Also is there a /sell hand command? Or is that a feature from another plugin ive seen.
There are no default values, all prices get defined directly on the sign. Also the plugin does not have a /sell command, it all works via shop signs. You might be thinking of Essentials or some other plugin.
Is it possible to summon enchanted item by /csgive ?
If it is... how would look command for iron sword with unbreaking?
I tried to look it up on google but failed. There were only commands for /i or /give. Not for that plugin.
Yes, you can get any item with
/csgivevia its sign code from a shop sign or
In reply to Phoenix616:
i mean... some item that doesnt exist yet in chest shop id list.
That is not possible, you need to generate an ID first before being able to use it.
Hello, i created an admin shop and the player cant buy from it even though i have given the correct permission.nodes to that player group. and yes he has enough money.
