NOTE REQUIRES VAULT & AN ECONOMY PLUGIN
What is it?
Companies is a trading plugin, allowing players to create their own company, employ other players in the company, settings wages for them, employees can then either do jobs for other companies who can pay the working company, or they can produce items to stock company chest shops to earn the company money.
How does it work
A player creates a company, they can then deposit money into the company to get started or withdraw it from the company bank. The player as owner can then set their own wages to be paid automatically, and if they wish they can employ another player. The player can work and see their own rank and wages, they can also stock the company shops up, but the initial company creator as owner can sack the employee, change wages, change rank (making them owner as well if they wish) and disband the company. Companies can also pay out all profits as dividends shared between the employees.
- Company creation and management
- Company chest shops
- Employee hiring
- Payment from companies to players and other companies
- Wages & dividends paid to employees
One way of the company making money is by selling goods, to create a chest shop first place a chest down, then above the chest place a wall sign with the following on it:
1st line - [company] 2nd line - The company name ( putting not your company name will break the sign) 3rd line - The price all products in the chest will be sold at (must be integer) 4th line - Anything you like
The top line should turn gold and provide you with a success message. Company employees can open the chests and take and deposit goods as a normal chest.
If a non employee opens the chest they will see the products but clicking on them will purchase the item 1 at a time or shift click to purchase stack, sending the money to the company bank.
The owner of a company can hire employees to help with their company. The owner has the option to hire, sack, change wages, or change rank of player to owner, accountant or manager.
The employee can choose to leave a company at any time
- Owner: can do anything to company hire fire disband or access bank
- Manager: Can hire or fire employees and create company shop signs
- Accountant: Can access the bank details and pay companies and players from the company bank.
Each employee has a wage from their company, this is set per player by the owner and paid automatically each Minecraft week ( 7 MC days - configurable in config), an owner can also choose to set his wagetype to percentage, where at payday the amount in the company bank (after wages) is then divided up between all the players (encouraging more work )
If a company cannot pay its employees then the employee and owner are notified.

Fantastic plugin. It would be amazing if these things were added in the future:
- a GUI menu
- a company value
- a ranking of the top companies
- a stock market
- a bond market or a way where the company owner can get a loan to finance the company
Will these things ever be added in the future?
I think this is a very good plugin. However I really wish there were additional features such as
-Ability for company chests to buy items from players not just sell them
-Stock Market. Players can buy and sell stocks for companies. I think this would really set this plugin apart.
-Instead of spamming the message "You have been paid <companybal>" when a purchase is made at a chest shop maybe add a more in depth message. Like "<player> has bought <item> from <companychest> for <value>
-Plotsquared integration would be incredible. A player can register a company on a plot and the plot will give build permissions to all employees of that company. Also a player can only create chest shops in that plot. This could be a configurable option in the config.yml
-Add $ to all money values. The plain numbers don't look very good.
-A GUI Menu would also be awesome. This would be a lot easier than constantly typing /company <arguments> into the chat.
-A company chest purchase history list. This would be awesome players can easily see what was purchased when they were offline.
-More configurable options in the config.yml file. Like custom messages, a cost to create a company, etc..
I unfortunately will not be using this plugin on our server because it does not have enough features to suit us.
However, I think this is an incredible plugin that has tons of potential. Adding these features would make this the best Minecraft plugin in my opinion. This plugin could easily go premium and I would pay more for it if it had all of these features. 5/5 stars. Would rate again :)
Fantastic plugin. I would say that if I was relying on the wages to be paid out fairly with 0 management, I would be a little bit dissapointed as there is little stopping players from idly sitting in companies collecting money. However, I am using it on an RP server and I find it very helpful as a tool for players to regularly pay out money to other players for various tasks, and for cooperating on chest shops.
Would be nice if maybe instead of wages we could have something like the Jobs plugin, where it detects a large variety of action and pays out to employees based on how much they contribute to the company through these actions (ie. killing a pig). If it were customizable from the player side, it would be absolutely amazing.
My players have been trying to RP out stock markets as well, based vaguely on this plugin so it would be interesting to see if that is possible to integrate, but that may be a bit out of the scope of this project.
Overall, this is one of the best plugins out there for letting players pay out wages and I have had zero problems with it so far!
