I will no longer be supporting this plugin. I can't find the time or motivation and I have moved on to Sponge for my personal servers. If anyone is interested in forking this, go right ahead and I will link to your project.
Thanks to everyone who reported a bug or donated their time or cryptocurrency.
HyperMerchant is a shopmenu GUI and NPC shopkeeper plugin for HyperConomy shops.
HyperConomy is the premier fully dynamic minecraft shop plugin. It is loaded with super unique features and is the perfect shop/economy plugin for RP, Faction, Freeplay, Towny, and Hybrid servers; Or any other server that is in need of a superb economy or shop plugin.
HyperConomy is most likely compatible with whatever economy plugin you are already using; And if you don't have an economy plugin already, HyperConomy has one built in.
So what is a fully dynamic shop plugin? It means that prices change automatically based on what your players buy and sell, much like they would in a real economy. This functionality can be disabled if you want prices to remain the same. Check out HyperConomy now.
HyperMerchant simmers alongside and together they become a super sauce, packed with vitamin awesome!

Thanks to Tux2 for getting me started with this bukkit plugin tutorial.
Thanks to nisovin for sharing his menu code in this forum post.
And especially thanks to RegalOwl for developing the featurefilled HyperConomy plugin. It is the machine and HyperMerchant is just an interface built upon it.
Much credit also goes to the developers of Citizens, whose plugin provides all the npc interaction.
If you are having a problem, there is a good chance it has never been reported yet. If I don't hear about the bug, I probably won't ever know about the bug, because I don't run a populated server to test out every feature of HyperMerchant.
Please take the time to report any issue, it will be a help to the community and your own server. I usually check this page each day. Thanks! =)
