    Hi! Chances are you are new to towny, minecraft, or too life... In which case you definitely have come to the right place!

    I would like to show you how the chest shop plugin works and how you can use it to benefit yourself and other players on an economy based server such as ours!

    Majority of trading is done between players through "shops" which are linked to a chest by placing a sign either on top of, next to, or on a wall that resides behind a chest.

    Now you can sell or buy a particular item for any quantity between 1-64 and any set price you can have before you run out of space! However setting prices to high will result in no one buying, and probably shame you for it. Setting it too low will cause you to be bought out too fast. So find a balance by offering a better quantity for a fair price based on players who have other shops!

    When making a shop you will probably ask the question "How Do I Do It?" and that's okay because it's as easy as dancing to hotline bling!

    First you want to obtain the item you are planning to sell!
    I think I want to sell this really neat Infinity Sword!

    Second you want to get the ITEM ID used to sell it on a sign!
    Type /iteminfo and you will be able to get the custom item tag that is used for the chest shop signs!

    As you see my Infinity Swords tag is "276#cN"

    Now grab a chest place it down and lets make a shop!
    I've placed a chest down and now to set up my shop it's very simple
    I'm selling one sword, for a price of $30,000.

    And that's it! Now people can buy your neat stuff!
    The method to have people sell things to you is very simple.
    BOOM! HAH; YOU GUESSED IT!

    Or you could even have it on the same line!
