Due to a bug with Minecraft Java 1.16, we recommend using barrels in place of chests. This will reduce FPS lag in areas where chests are abundant.

CREATING A CHEST SHOP
1. Place a chest.
2. Place a sign on the chest (hold shift);

- LINE 1: Shop Owner Line.
Leave this empty, it will fill automatically;

- LINE 2: Item Amount.
Indicate the amount of items you are buying/selling, per sale;

- LINE 3: Price
Indicate the price of the items per sale. Use B for BUY and S for SELL.
They pay you for the items or you pay them to sell you the items.

- LINE 4: Item
Indicate the item you are buying/selling. Unsure? - use /iteminfo.
You can also use '?' for it to autofill with what is already in the chest. Alternatively, if the chest is empty you can click the sign displaying '?' with the item.


EXAMPLES
41


This sign indicates that 1 diamond can be purchased for $25.

42


This sign indicates that 10 diamonds can be purchased for $250 or sold to the shop for $200.

43


This sign can be clicked with an item to apply it to the sign.

HOW TO CREATE COMPANY CHEST SHOPS

Like a regular ChestShop, you can also have a Company ChestShop which instead of profits/loses of a shop going to a player, it goes to the Company's balance. An example of this is the company "Example" wants to trade Dirt. So instead of slotting a player name the company has created a shop with the first line as:

c:Example

For your company however, just start with the prefix "c:" and add your company name, the same one registered on the Companies plugin, in front of the prefix.

The example below has the company name as "Example" -

Note: Your company name cannot include symbols or be over 14 characters. If it is, it won't work on a chestshop sign.

HOW TO USE CHEST SHOPS
  • Left and Right click to buy and sell. By default, Right will be buy, and left will be sell.

  • Shift and click if you want to buy or sell in stacks.

  • You will be notified if you are online if a player buys from your store.

  • If you have a custom / renamed / enchanted, or otherwise different item, ensure you use /iteminfo while holding it in your hand to get the Item ID for the sign.
