So, I'm trying to make a shop in my game where the player can spend money to buy additional characters for their party. I have no idea how to implement it however.

The characters are pre-made.

I am using RPG Maker MV

either use a plugin for a common event shop, or use show choices to ask the player what actor he wants to hire

Do you happen to have any recommendations on plugins?

Yanfly have one!
I kinda don't know how to use it.
I had the idea of making it one item but I have nothing to stop the user from buying more than one of the item.

Edit: I found a work around. I decided to set up the character shop like the "pick a Pokemon" segments from the Pokemon series.

A simple way would be to have your merchant sell an item for each additional character. Build a simple event that adds the character in question to the party. Or just build an even that is called by the merchant that allows the player to add additional characters to the party.

You might consider an option to dismiss additional characters.

It's quite alright. I have a much better Idea for now.
I have decided to make the shop be a normal shop, but they would have "Contracts" Displayed for other people to buy.
This eliminates the need to open a shop menu, and will allow me to enter a little story event introducing them, and also turning on a switch to let the game add them into cutscenese.

There's a Yanfly plugin for different currencies, if that helps any. You might want to use "special points" to buy characters like in my commercial game I'm making.

Special points, like in FFVII's gold saucer.

Things you can say about your rpg maker project but not your bf/gf: I'm not super committed but it's fun to play around with it.
