On all of the DeVco servers players can run their own shops and sell their own items in them to other players.
Be aware that while the new shop plugin is undergoing active development, anything can be changed at any given time without notice.
You MUST be in a City to create your shop. This can be in your City Home plot or in a Central "Shopping Mall" area. You will still retain your normal claims. Owning a Plot for your shop will be free in ALL cities. Be aware, if you are in a private City, you cold be charged for a Building plot.
PLAYER WARNING: Be very aware that when you join a City, you need to TRUST the City Mayor. He will have full access to ALL of your items as he owns the claim. There are DeVco Cities on every server that are also free to either build a nice building or own a shop in the mall. The advantage here is it will be run by the server Admins so "trust" will not be an issue.
Cost for Shop Plots: ALL Shop plots will be FREE of charge in ALL Cities. Shop items sold have always had a flat tax rate of 5% going back to the server. The new way that this will be handled is 4% of that Tax will go to the Mayor of the city (rather than charge you for the plot, they will get their money back via taxes). The DeVco City tax rate will be a flat 7% going to the server.
Requirements to create shops:
Must be placed on a city plot.
Player creating the shop must be assigned as the owner of the plot.
City must have 3 or more residents
City must be at least 5k blocks or larger in size (Right click the city claim with a stick to see it's size)
There are some rules that shop owners must abide by so please follow them.
Easiest way to have your own shop:
Join an existing city that will let you make a shop. Do /shops, and click on a city. If that city can be joined, you can do it with "/c join [CityName]". You can also use "/c list" for a list of cities. The DeVco Cities will also have a /warp devco and /warp shops for fast access.
The city will have a free plot that you can take for your shop. Check with the Mayor if he has separate Shop plots (free) or buildable City plots that he may charge you for. Search a plot that you can take with "/c plot take". Otherwise, you may want to contact the mayor (use "/c info [CityName]") or join another city. At this time we are working on changing a plugin for DeVco City that will allow you to have a buildable plot AND a Shop at the Mall... comming soon :)
After you get a plot, you can create your chest shops!
You can customize your plot, or you can make your own city and invite other people. For more info about cities, use "/c help" or visit the plugin wiki.
How to create a chest shop:
Place a chest down, anywhere on the plot you are assigned.
Hit the chest with the item you want to sell
Type the price you want to sell it for in chat, you will recieve a chat prompt for this
Fill the chest with the items you are trying to sell
How to find a shop for an item:
Use the /findshop command to find the shops with the lowest price for the item in your hand. You can also use "/findshop [ItemID]" to find the shops for the specified item instead.
