    ChestShop is a simple, yet very powerful system for making physical shops using signs and chests that was originally created by Acrobot and is now being continued.

    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"! Don't worry about your economy plugin, ChestShop supports all of them with Vault!
    (Versions above 3.9.2 also support economy plugins using the Reserve API)
    Some known compatible and incompatible economy plugins.

    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.

    Additional modules for ChestShop:
    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 Player Shop
    1. Place a chest on the ground
    2. Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)
    3. On the sign, write:
    • The first line 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 of the item on the forth line. You can find out the name of the item that you're holding by running /iteminfo

      Example shop:

      A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from Phoenix616
    Creating an Admin 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!​

    Here is a list of player-made translations: Translation list

    • /iteminfo - Get information about the item in your hand
    • /iteminfo <id/name> - Get information about the item with the given id or name
    • /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

    Permission nodes* - shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:* - create all types of shops<itemid> - create shops with a specific item type<itemid> - create buy shops for a type<itemid> - create sell shops for a type - buy any item from shops<itemid> - buy only specific items from shops - sell any item to shops<itemid> - sell only specific item to shops​
    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.​

    Useful tips by players

    ChestShop directly hooks into the following plugins to provide additional functionality:
    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.

    Great Plugin!
    Very easy in Setup. And when you not stupid like me, and dont read the manual on update, is much more easier. :D

    The plugin is very user friendly: Place a chest, place a sign with only a few letters on it, and it's done.
    Very postive is: you can buy and sell on the same sign.
    Has served for me great for years.

    Had an issue on GitHub that was open for about a month before deciding to join the irc and talk about it, and once I did that the issue was able to be fixed within a day but I'd say overall the support is pretty good and the plugin works well

    Great plugin. Long time issue is player shops only work once they have logged in. Not clear what setting in config is causing this or if it is a bug.

    Fabulous plugin! A user found one exploit which happened due to another plugin not working well with Chestshop. The developer fixed the problem with a commit instantly!
