Reminder: Scheduled GS Image Server downtime tomorrow

Monday, May 26th, 2008


As we announced earlier GarageSale’s Free Image hosting won’t be available tomorrow (May 27th) for a few hours.
You won’t able to upload new images and your auction images won’t show during this period – but once the system has arrived at it new home everything will be fine again.

GarageSale updated to version 4.1

Friday, May 16th, 2008

We just released GarageSale 4.1, a free update for all GarageSale 4 users, sporting several improvements and bug fixes:

Ignore for eBay warnings
Have you grown tired of those pesky eBay warnings about your PayPal payment being held? GarageSale 4.1 will cure this: When eBay sends you a warning during auction verification, you can now choose to ignore similar warnings in the future.

FTP Changes
If you have chosen to upload your images to an FTP server and this server didn’t allow for multiple image upload connections, you might not have been able to successfully upload your auction images. Starting with version 4 GarageSale uses multiple FTP connections per default. Unfortunately some low-cost web space providers restrict their customers to a single FTP connection. GarageSale 4.1 takes care of this problem by adding an option to use only single connection.

Please see the version history section on the GarageSale homepage for more information about what’s new in GarageSale 4.1.

GarageSale’s Free Image Service is moving

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

We'll be back soon.

On Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 the data centre hosting the infrastructure for GarageSale’s Free Image Service is moving to a new physical location about 120 miles away from its current home. 

During the move GarageSale’s Free Image Service will not be available for a period of up to 8 hours. Please see below for the exact period of time of the move: 

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 
Pacific Standard Time: 2:00 p.m – 10:00 p.m.
Greenwich Mean Time: 21:00 – 5:00
Central European Summer Time: 23:00 – 7:00

If you selected GarageSale’s Free Image Service as image storage in GarageSale’s preferences your auction images will not be visible during the move. Please take these time into consideration when starting new auctions.

Also, you won’t be able to upload new auctions to eBay in this period, unless you select a different storage option for your auction images.

Out Now: GarageSale Design Pack #26

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

We just released Auction Design Pack #26 featuring eight new designs. As always, all GarageSale auction designs contain several different layouts that let you change image alignment or hide certain design elements.


Easter Bunnies Theme


Black Gradient Theme

You can see all designs included with pack 26 at here. These new templates require GarageSale 4.0.6 and are already included in the current GarageSale download.

GarageSale 4 hits the streets!

Friday, January 11th, 2008

GarageSale 4 is now shipping. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to call this “The most extensive update in GarageSale history!“. Read on to find out why we think so:

Greatly improved interface
We invested a lot of effort in making sure the interface harmonizes perfectly with the world of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) – while still offering a familiar experience to long-time GarageSalers. The distinct modes for auctions and template have been unified into a single view where each item is accessible with a single click.

Preview editing
Now edit your auctions without ever leaving preview mode. This includes not only the title, description, and images – you can also specify categories and set item attributes there too. You never have to switch between the auction edit and preview modes again!

Our updated GarageSale tutorial movie should give you an idea of how editing in preview mode feels like.

If you’ve been using custom auction designs in GarageSale, you’ll be delighted to hear that your existing designs will get all theses features ‘for free’ – no code tweaking required. (And yes, you can still edit templates the traditional way if you prefer.)

Faster auction uploads
Since most new Macs ship with multiple CPUs, it only made sense for us to rewrite GarageSale’s auction upload engine from scratch to take advantage of this. GarageSale will now upload auctions and images concurrently.

Graphical auction scheduling
GarageSale’s built-in auction scheduler has grown up. Auctions can now be scheduled with drag-and-drop – just like you’re used to from your favorite calendar application.

Improved eBay messaging
With past versions of GarageSale you could send messages to buyers or view incoming messages via eBay’s messaging system. We’ve now taken this one step further: You can reply to incoming questions from within the application itself. And whether or not a question has been answered is synchronized over multiple copies of GarageSale, making this a killer feature for small businesses.

PayPal integration
GarageSale 4 can monitor multiple PayPal accounts for incoming payments. See your accounts history with a single click instead of waiting for PayPal’s web page to load.

Even more auction designs
As if the number of auction themes wasn’t already overwhelming, our design team has been busy adding 8 new ones for GarageSale 4. As usual, each encompasses multiple layouts – actually making it 20 different designs. You can see why we stopped counting the number of possible design variants a long time ago.

For more information please visit the GarageSale homepage.

As with previous versions you’re welcome to try before you buy GarageSale 4: Download GarageSale right now and post three auctions to eBay. If you like what you see you can purchase a license for USD/EUR 29.99. (If you already own a license for GarageSale you can upgrade for just USD/EUR 14.99.)

Will you be attending MacWorld 2008? We’d love to give you a first-hand demonstration of GarageSale’s amazing new features at our booth #2544. Be sure to ask us about the special show offer for MacWorld attendees.
