How to Create a Shop
Players can sell their own items by creating a shop with a chest. Other players can then right-click the chest to buy items from it. Each chest can sell one specific item.
To create a shop you will need a chest, a sign, and an item you want to sell. Place the chest where you want to create your shop and then place the sign on the chest. Type [shop] on the first line, the quantity on the second line, and the price on the third line. Then hold what you want to sell and punch the sign to activate the new shop. The quantity is how many should be sold at a time. It could be one at a time, stacks of 64, or anything in between.
Trading Using Shops
You can now trade items using the chest shops as well. Creating a shop to trade items is almost exactly the same as a regular shop. The only difference is that on the sign you must add "trade" to the bottom line of the sign, and you have to provide an item that you will be "trading" with. For trade shops the <price> will be the quantity of the item you want in return.
Once you've created a trade sign you will punch the sign with the item you want to give away first. Then, punch the sign a second time with the item you want to receive. For example, I will give away 1 diamond to receive 3 obsidian.
How to Earn Money
The only way to earn money is to sell your items. You can sell your items by setting up a Chest Shop, or by selling your items to the server. The server will buy your items at a very low price, however, so you will usually earn more if you set up a shop and get players to buy the items from you.
If you want to sell your items to the server you can visit the physical shop in Origin (the server town) or you can do /sell.

Renting a Shop Stall in Origin
You can rent a stall in Origin (the server town) to create shops inside of. This is a great way to get more people to notice your shops and buy from you. The town currently offers two different buildings for rent. The smaller building is $90 for three days, and the larger is $150 for three days.
To rent one of these all you need to do is find one that is available and right click on the sign attached to it. Every time you right click the sign it will add three days to your rent.
Players are able to modify the floor and interior of their shops. You can also edit part of the second floor of most buildings. You are not allowed to modify the outer walls or roof.
