eBay Errors Explained

  1. Error 120 “You need to create a seller's account.”Check your account settings on eBay's website. You need to be registered as a seller. If you're using a recently created ebay account, make sure you list your first item through ebay's website directly. This a restriction by eBay.
  2. Error 21919301 “UPC / EAN is missing a value. Enter a value and try again.”You have to enter a barcode (UPC, EAN or ISBN) into the "Barcode" field in GarageSale's "Options" Inspector. If you don't have a barcode, simply leave this field empty.
    If you still use GarageSale 6, it might be necessary to update the eBay category data manually (GarageSale 7 does this automatically).
  3. Error 240 “The item cannot be listed or modified. The title and/or description may contain improper words, or the listing or seller may be in violation of eBay policy.”You're using any word or code that eBay does not allow or there might an issue with your seller account.
    Please find more info on the error 240 help page.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. General:
  2. How do I get an upgrade license for GS 7?If you already own a license for an older GarageSale version, please open GarageSale 7 and choose “Buy License...” from the “GarageSale” menu. The upgrade option should be available there. If not, click on the "Enter previous license" link.
  3. Am I eligible for a free GarageSale 7 upgrade license?If you purchased your GarageSale 6 license after August 1st 2015, you are eligible for a free upgrade to GarageSale 7. GarageSale 7 will offer you a free license once you start the purchase flow within the application (choose “Buy License...” from the “GarageSale” menu).
    Unfortunately this free upgrade is not available for customers who bought GarageSale from the Mac App Store.
  4. What happens with my existing GarageSale 6 database if I upgrade to GarageSale 7?Installing and using GarageSale 7 will not effect your ability to use GarageSale 6.x. Your current database will be migrated to the GarageSale 7's new database format, the original database file will not be altered in the process.
  5. Why do I have to fetch a token at the eBay site?GarageSale is a certified eBay client. The only way for certified clients to add listings for your eBay account is via an access token. On the page you are granting GarageSale this eBay token.
  6. Do I have to give you access to my eBay account?No. You don't give us access to your account at all! eBays authorization page is a little bit misleading on that. When you agree to the eBay page, you give GarageSale access to your eBay account in form of an access token. This access token is securely stored in your system Keychain and not shared with anybody, including us.
  7. What information will GarageSale share with you?GarageSale will not share any kind of information about your eBay listings or eBay activities with us.
    See the Privacy Policy for more info.

  22. Are there any Tipps and Tricks?
    • You can copy specific settings from one listing and simply paste them into other listings (right-click on a listing in the outline view).
    • Listing images can be copied and pasted between listings.
    • You can set the quantity of "Good 'til cancelled" listings to zero to mark the item "out of stock" (you need to enable the "Out of Stock" feature in your selling preferences on eBay's website).
    • GarageSale remembers what domestic shipping service you last added to a new listing, and fills it in next time you add a shipping service to a new listing.
    • In the Listing section, you can use the Command-1, -2, -3 keyboard shortcuts to switch between Editor, Preview, and Live view.
    • Holding down the option key while choosing "Sort by title" from the listing section's outline view context menu sorts listings in reverse order.
    • You can automatically generate SKU for your variations by hitting the "Generate SKUs" in the variation options.
    • You can easily create a listing from an inventory item through the "More" button in the Inventory section. Item quantity, item cost, price, title and description are copied into the listing.
    • When a smart group item is selected you can use the "Reveal Original" command to the outline view context menu to easily jump to the original item of an item shown in the smart group, for instance to delete it or move it to a different folder.
    • There's an icon legend available in GarageSale's "Help" menu.
    • When holding down the shift key when invoking the "Duplicate" command, images won't be copied over.
