    This plugin requires Vault and a vault compatible economy plugin.

    Example SignShop


    This is an example of how to set up a [Buy] sign with SignShop. The sign above is linked to a chest containing items. In this example, it will sell an enchanted pickaxe for 600 Waffles (Waffles are our server's currency :) ).

    Send me pictures of your server's SignShops in the comments and the image above could be YOUR shop!

    Basic Features
    • Don't need to memorize any annoying commands
    • Can create global shops (with infinite items and infinite money using [iBuy] and [iSell])
    • Can create player owned shops
    • Can buy and sell raw XP and XP levels
    • Signs have colors: [Blue] means the shop is stocked and working, [Red] means the shop is out or overstocked, [Black] means the sign is not active
    • Can sell multiple items per sign (e.g. Alchemy Starter Kit, containing 3 glass bottles 1 brewing stand, netherwarts, ghast tears, etc.)
    • Chests do not need to be directly under signs, they can be anywhere (Distance can be customized in the config)
    • Can use multiple signs per chest (just remove any extra items, link the chest to the new sign, and stock the chest with multiple item types!)
    • Ability to set up shops to control redstone levers (to charge admittance to a door, power some sort of contraption, blow up a bunch of TNT, whatever you want!)
    • Can limit number of shops per player or permission group
    • Can edit active signs by clicking a sign with the desired text using Black Dye and then clicking the active SignShop
    • Can disable trading with villagers
    • Profit sharing using [Share] signs linked to SignShops

    • Supports custom potions, books, fireworks, and lores

    Advanced Features

    • Can set up signs to run commands in console
    • Can run commands as if the buyer typed the command themselves (use "runCommand{asUser}" block in the config. NOTE: "*" permission nodes must be supported by your permission plugin for this feature)
    • Can run commands after a certain amount of time, allowing you to sell things like temporary permissions
    • Can sell partial amounts to signs (disabled by default)
    • Customizable messages
    • Customizable signs
    • Can define multipliers for groups to allow certain groups to get discounts or make more money for selling items

    Here are some FAQs that you may find helpful. First make sure you have Vault and a Vault compatible economy plugin. Second make sure you do /restart and you don't use Plugman.
    1 . Why is my shop giving me X amount of items? I want it to give me Y amount!
    When you link the sign and the chest, the amount that is in the chest will be the amount of items per transaction. So if you want to only sell 8 of an item with each transaction, you put 8 in the chest, then link it to the sign. Afterwards, you can fill up the chest, and it will still continue to sell 8 at a time.
    2. Why can't my players use shops but ops can?
    This is usually caused by a plugin interfering with SignShop or the built in vanilla spawn protection. Try changing spawn-protection=16 to spawn-protection=0 in If you have Essentials installed try disabling all of the Essentials signs including -color by commenting them out. Otherwise you can use your permission plugin's verbose logging to see what permissions are being checked when they try to use a sign. i.e. /LuckPerms verbose on or /pex toggle debug.
    3. Is it possible to sell all of an item in a player's inventory or hand?
    This is not possible, but you can setup the shop to sell a full stack or more for a higher price and then set AllowVariableAmounts: to true in the config for when they don't have as many.
    4. What does it mean when I am trying to make an ibuy sign and it says "You are not allowed to link this"?
    This is usually caused by another plugin that is trying to protect the area. You can turn on your permission's plugin verbose/debug logging to see what permissions are being checked so you know what permission to give. Note: Some plugins disregard "op". (edited)
    Message #faq
    Extending SignShop with other plugins

    Works with all standard economies (EssentialsEco, iConomy, BOSEconomy, Gringotts, and more) and permission plugins (LuckPerms, bPermissions, PEX, GroupManager, PermissionsBukkit, zPermission (and defaults to OP permissions, if you don't want to use a permission system)).

    Grief Prevention, Residence, LWC Extended, BlockLocker(Lockette replacement)
    For sign and chest protection, though SignShop has built in sign protection.

    EssentialsX, CMI
    Use the worth.yml for dynamic sign prices by putting [worth] on the bottom line of the sign (must be enabled in SignShop config)

    Save your inventory when you die.

    Allow players to rent rooms for a period of time.

    Show shop locations.

    Supports Multiverse worlds.

    Use Towny banks and only let players make shops in Towny shop plots. (Thanks ryvix!)

    Respects build permissions, and you can only let players make shops in regions with the allow-shop flag.

    Convert from ChestShop format to SignShop format by just punching the sign with redstone.

    I encountered some troubles in the process of localization and there is no way to solve it. I am a server from China. When it shows that I have purchased 64 stones from this store, the stones cannot display Chinese. There is no place in the configuration file that allows me to edit Chinese.

    I'm trying to run an Apex server, I met every requirement needed and watched the tutorial. I tried it out, got to the Redstone. Aaaand, it didn't work. I punched the chest then the sign made sure I had exactly what
    I wanted to sell in there, and it just broke the chest and the sign just glitched. I don't know what the issue is but for now, it's unfunctional.

      Do you even realize that poorly reviewing a plugin without first even trying to contact the author for help only demotivates them to continue development? It also makes you look like a fool to the more than 1000 concurrent successful users.

    I think this is a very good plugin, i didn't give it five stars because it is unclear if the plugin supports 1.17.

    Also a way to have just the trade functionallity would be apreciated.

      Author's Response
      Thanks for the positive review! It does support 1.17 but I have not had a chance to fully test it so I have not updated the tested field. You can also submit the feature request on the Github page.

      Sorry I didn't notice this review earlier but make sure you are using the correct version. Version 3 and up is for 1.13 and up. Also make sure you don't have something like spawn protection interfering. For faster support please use the discussion tab or Discord instead of the review section.

    Plugin doesnt even load with CMI, promised a fix in the next update but its been a month and no update has been posted making this plugin virtually useless for people with CMI. Epic
    1. Weaves
      Author's Response
      I use it with CMI on my own servers and it works just fine. The bug only effects a very small portion of users, so much so that I cannot even reproduce the bug myself. I am not going to release a full update to fix one bug that doesn't effect a significant number of users. Especially since I currently have a newborn that is taking up all of my free time right now. You can use the dev build that addresses the issue in the mean time. You would already know that if you asked for support instead of leaving a negative review.

    Does what it was made to do perfectly. Shame that it conflicts with Essentials sign stuff but can honestly say the transition wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and was definitely worth it to allow people to sell enchanted stuff and other things with NBT tags.

    The dev is active on Discord and responds to questions within a very reasonable timeframe, which saves me a lot of headaches. Would definitely recommend.
