About ChestShop (iConomyChestShop)

I am not responding to bug reports in the comments. Please create a ticket here!

I released my first Android game, would you mind giving it a go?


A simple, yet very powerful system for making physical shops using signs and chests.

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).

The plugin by default submits anonymous stats about your server (player count, plugin/server version and type) to a public statistics website - - in order to provide the developers with usage information. If you wish to opt out, you can do so in the PluginMetrics/config.yml file. 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 shop

Player shop

Place a chest on the ground
Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)
On the sign, write:Sign
First line will be filled by the plugin automatically
Price 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"
You can find out the name of the item you're holding by doing /iteminfo
For exampleExample sign
A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from AcrobotPL

Admin Shop - shop with unlimited items

Firstly, you've got to be sure that you've the ChestShop.admin permission / you are an OP. To make an Admin Shop, simply put "Admin Shop" (configurable in config.yml) on the first line of the sign.


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

Permission nodes

Description*shop creation and buying/selling - it contains:*create all types of shops any item from shop any item to shop

WARNING: Shops will be unusable until their owner connects at least once to the server!

    Yes, I have tried it and it works really good with Essentials

    Shop cannot be created

    everything works except for when placing food items... always destroys the sign instantly saying "Shop cannot be created"

  • #40

    Doesn't work for me anymore. It worked fine before but when I do /csversion nothing shows up but other commands like /iteminfo and /csgive work. The signs use to work but i updated chestshop and the signs dont work either now. I need some help...

  • #41

    Sorry, it seems like the auto-updater screwed up and downloaded an 1.7.8 version. It is incompatible with <1.7.8 versions of CraftBukkit.

  • #39

    Hey Im using this plugin and I want to sell e.g. 64 Jungle Log for 100 and buy for 20. Why I cant make it? It says You cant create this type of shop! someone help me...

  • #38

    can i sell different items in one chest????


  • #45


  • #37

    there are three of us on the server I am on and using pex. two of us can create shops but, one can't at all and doesn't even give "you cannot create shop" all are permisions are the same "*" added and checked the superperms and there all true aswell could it be because there on a different IP?

  • #36

    I'm on a server that's using this and it works great, for the most part.

    One issue I'm having it attempting to offer written books. I've tried labeling the chestshop Written Book, which is what shows with /iteminfo, but it consistently says "Out of Stock" when users come to purchase, even though there is inventory.

    Any suggestions?

  • #35

    What about Named items?


  • #34

    i cant get it to work with iconomy pls help

  • #52

    What version are you using?

  • #33

    Do you have any idea why it would say "Shop created" Than not let me buy? I am the sole op and admin atm and gave my self $100,000,000 to test it. It's a diamond pick for $100, with the "vanilla" bukkit economy, do I need a plugin for that?

  • #51

    Do you have Vault installed?

  • #31

    Is there any plans to implement the selling of renamed items (ie, an Iron Sword renamed "Iron Katana") in the near future? I just made a ton of these kinds of items for a themed shop on a server I play on and would be bummed to see them go to waste :(
