Simple Chest and Sign based shop plugin. Uses the in-game currency to make transactions. At the spawn point there are "Admin Shops" that sell and buy limited items. More on that in the Economy section below.

How to make a ChestShop

Following this table will show you how to make a ChestShop.

In the Buy and Sell examples, we are buying/selling stone. In the Both example, we are buying/selling Granite. On a ChestShop sign, Granite will appear as Stone:1.

Finding Item IDs

There are many ways online to find Item IDs, including the Minecraft Wiki, but there are also two in-game methods as well. Option One is a coded in the game itself, and Option Two is provided by the plugin.

Option One

This method uses Minecraft's own debug tools to show Item ID when you hover your mouse over an item. To activate it, hold down F3 and push the H key. A message will show telling you it worked.

Option Two

This method uses a command from the ChestShop plugin. While holding the item you want to see the Item ID of, type /iteminfo. It will show the name of the item, and it's Item ID. The advantage to this, is the ability to get a code for customized items, like Enchanted Swords, banners, shulker boxes, FireWorks, etc. It will provide the Item ID and an extra bit to add at the end because it's a custom item. An example would be like this for a Firework: 401#23
