    Set up custom villager shopkeepers that sell exactly what you want them to sell and for what price. You can set up admin shops, which have infinite supply, and you can also set up player shops, which pull supply from a chest.

    It will also prevent any other trades with non-shopkeeper villagers, if you want it to.

    For those who are simply looking for a convenient way to modify the trades of vanilla villagers (as an alternative to using complex Minecraft commands), the plugin also includes a graphical editor for regular villagers and wandering traders.

    Basic Features
    • Easily create villager shopkeepers that trade the items you want them to trade.
    • Admins shops with infinite supplies.
    • Player shops which pull supplies from a chest.
    • Different types of player shops: selling, buying, trading, and selling books.
    • Various supported mob types to represent your shopkeeper, sign shops, and Citizens (NPC) shops.
    • Editor for regular villagers and wandering traders.
    • Many configuration options.
    • Translatable messages.
    • Open source (Source code on GitHub)
    Supported server versions
    Shopkeepers supports the latest versions of Bukkit / Spigot.
    Note that this plugin is created to work with CraftBukkit (or alternatively Spigot). Bukkit does not have an API for some of the things necessary to make this plugin work. This means that other server software (Tekkit, Forge, Cauldron, etc.) will not work with this plugin.
    Other CraftBukkit or Spigot derivatives/forks might work, but are not officially supported. So if you run into issues while using those, try to reproduce your issue on a fresh and up-to-date Spigot server first.

    This plugin uses bStats to collect anonymous plugin usage statistics. This helps me to determine how many servers are using the plugin, which Minecraft versions it is used with the most, and to which degree the different features are used.

    Here is a list of all currently tracked information:
    • Common information: The number of servers using the plugin, the number of players on these servers, online mode, Minecraft version, plugin version, core count, system arch, operating system, server country, Java version.
    • Shopkeepers specific information: Whether specific related plugins are used (Citizens, Towny, WorldGuard, Gringotts, other Vault economy plugins), number of shops, whether player shops are used, whether certain features are enabled in the config (ex. WorldGuard/Towny compatibility, Citizens shops, delayed saves, colored names, chest protection, removal of inactive shops, tax rate, strict item comparison, purchase logging, disabling of other villagers, ..), the number of worlds containing shops.
    • All information can be publicly viewed here:
    If you want to disable bStats for all plugins on your server, edit the file plugins/bStats/config.yml, or alternatively disable it only for Shopkeepers by setting 'enable-metrics' to 'false' inside the Shopkeepers config.

    Known potential issues
    A list of known potential issues of the latest version of Shopkeepers can be found in the wiki: This documents differences between Minecraft/Spigot versions, and existing Minecraft/Spigot issues related to Shopkeepers.

    If you run into an issue, check if this list already contains and maybe offers information on how to handle it.

    Want to help?
    The less I have to do myself, the more time I have to write plugins. Therefore I am looking for someone who would be willing to get involved in the project. That could for example mean:
    • Keeping the documentation (the wiki) up-to-date with plugin updates.
    • Improving the existing documentation.
    • Creating and maintaining translations.
    • Help managing issues and answering questions of users.
    If you are a programmer with experience in writing bukkit plugins, or have ideas on how you can contribute to the project beyond that, let me know as well! If you are interested, feel free to contact me via PM.

    Beyond that, everybody is invited to help others with issues and questions in the issue tracker, comment section and the discord channel! Also consider contributing translations!

    Incredible plugin, has all the features you'll ever need without throwing in a ton of features you don't want. Only encountered an issue once or twice and it was just minor incompatibilities with other plugins that had nearly no effect on the rest of the server.

    Version: 2.12.0
    I wanted to pay respects to this awesome project and developer (I'm baffled that blab is still so active even to this day), I still use the plugin on my server (which marks how old everything is getting).
    I'm also glad my original artwork logo is still present :)
    It's been so long, that I even started making my own plugins, and this one without a doubt served as standard on how I feel good mc plugin should be.

    10/10, definetly would recommend.
