SignShop allows you to set up physical shops by punching a chest with your items you want to sell, then punching a sign (while holding redstone dust). It's easy to set up, and even easier to customize!

This plugin requires Vault and collects Metrics.


Message from the authors

Hey folks, we just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has enjoyed this plugin, and made it what it is today. As some of you have noticed, we have quite a few tickets in the backlog. Usually we are pretty good about grooming the backlog, and fixing the issues. Lately, we have been busy with other things. Wargamer and I both work full-time as developers. This means we haven't been spending much time on SignShop. There is good news in all of this. The good news is, we are looking for developers to continue maintaining the project. The project is open source, and we would like others to contribute. Eventually we would like to hand-off the project to someone as dedicated as we once were. If you are interested in becoming a developer on one of the top 50 Minecraft plugins, shoot us a PM. In the mean time, we will still be around to answer any questions you might have.

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 :-) ).
