ShopGUI+ is a premium Bukkit plugin that allows you to add a custom shop to your Minecraft server that can be accessed via the /shop command. This plugin is the basis for your server’s economy. It allows you to set up GUI based shops that players can buy and sell various in game items from. You can set item price, amount, etc. within the plugin. ShopGUI is definitely a plugin that you’ll want to mainly edit via the config files on your control panel. ShopGUIPlus is an advanced shop plugin that allows you to create server shops and allow your players to sell items from anywhere on your server without having to physically be at the shop. As the name suggests the shops are entirely GUI based which brings a really clean look to your server and is helpful for all players to make selling and buy items as painless as possible.
As far as plugins go, ShopGUI+ is a must have for any server as it allows you to create an entire economy. You can sell everything from grass blocks to mob spawners to beacons allowing your players to finally have a use for the money they generate in game. Speaking of generating money in-game, ShopGUI+ can also buy back items from players using the /sell hand command giving players a use for all of the extra items they don’t need. ShopGUI+ has tons of different configuration options for your Minecraft server, and you can check out exactly how to setup ShopGUI+ using the video above!
