    Ever looked for a trading plugin which involves signs and chests? This plugin works similarly to ChestShop and SignShop, however it does not use soft currency (aka in-game currency): instead, it trades one item for another.



    The text on the sign will follow this template:

    <amount> <product_item>
    <amount> <cost_item>

    In addition to `[Trade]`-shops, which exchange the `product` item for the `cost`, there are `[iTrade]`-shops, which are intended to be created by admins, who do not care about collecting the cost. Furthermore, these shops never run out of items, which means that the products need not be stored in a chest (the `i` stands for "infinite").

    A tutorial on how users can create TradeShops can be found here (1min video);

    Version: 2.3.0-STABLE
    Wonderful plugin, a great solution for servers who want to enable player shops but keep it Vanilla-style. I strongly recommend the use of TradeShop, especially since the most recent update with better 1.17 support and a new GUI.

      Thanks for the kind review!

    Fantastic resource, is there a way to set OP's not able to just open chests? It would be nice to set it available to the owner of the tradeshop only.

      Ty for the review, see the discussion thread

    Version: 2.2.1-BETA
    Very nice, i excited for the new features soon. The plugin have a lot of potential to be better then others in therms of vanilla servers.
  4. Squeejcraft
    Version: 2.2.1-BETA
    Probably the most popular plugin on my server, looking forward to future updates. Current version sometimes generates console errors.
    I think a paid version with more support and the ability to change/disable the prefix would benefit everyone:)
  5. tekn0
    Version: 2.2.1-BETA
    Please add an option to change the colors of the help menu, and the prefix! Other than these two things, the plugin is amazing and my players love it. (P.S. some SQL storage would also be amazing.)

      Thank you for the great review! SQL support is planned for TradeShop 3.0,whereas message customization (ie prefix) will come hopefully earlier than that).

    Its Amazing Just Could U Start Working On a 1.16 Version or atleast for the 1.16 snapshots
    1. Lori00
      Author's Response
      Thanks for the great review! It is rather difficult to work with snapshots because a lot is changed all the time, and testing stuff on potentially unstable snapshopts may be messy. However, once a semi-stable bukkit/spigot version is released, we will start implementing 1.16-support immediately.

    Version: 2.2.1-BETA
    good plugin, lightweight, simple tutorial, does the job as expected.
    but it throws some InventoryMoveItemEvent errors in console... anyway everything should be good, thanks for making this amazing plugin^^

    Great plugin but there is a bug on my 1.14.4 server when chests dont have a closing animation or sound, strange bug but good plugin
    1. Lori00
      Author's Response
      That is most likely not related to the plugin, as sounds are emitted from the client, not the server.

    Great except for one thing;
    I tried making a trade chest for a server I made that sues prismarine crystals as currency and if I try to make a trade chest I find that I cant fit the word Prismarine Crystals into the price spot. I tried using the id but it didn't work. Am I doing something wrong?

    1 Diamond
    4 prismarine crys

    ----------(didn't work)----------------------------

    1 Diamond

    Very nice plugin, I like that you can trade with Items not with money, for example me and some friends who are playing in our survival server don't want to have a currency like $, just gold, iron minerals.

    The plugin is really good but not perfect: It would be so nice that the Shop Owner or users could trade in their own shops too. Of course they can just take them from the chest but i'ts faster and better to just have to click to the sign.
