Search eBay efficiently with GarageBuy 3

We just released GarageBuy 3 for iPhone and iPad, our free app for searching eBay efficiently, on the App Store.

GarageBuy lets you setup sophisticated searches on eBay and remembers what items you’ve already seen. Just like a newsreader app, GarageBuy keeps track of the number of new items for your searches. You can hide items you have previously seen and focus on new arrivals!

Your saved searches and viewed items are synched through iCloud, so when you are done reviewing items on the couch with your iPad, you can pick up where you left off with your iPhone on the way to the office.

GarageBuy lets you place bids and purchase “Buy It Now” items. You can authorize multiple eBay accounts and switch between them on the fly.

GarageBuy is a free download from the App Store and requires iOS 5 or later.

GarageSale 6.4 is here.

GarageSale 6.4 is out. You can download it right away from this page.

Here’s an overview of changed or added functionality:

  • GarageSale 6.4 adds a product code field, where you can enter the UPC, EAN, or ISBN code of your item – if it’s not contained in eBay’s product catalog.
    Search engines will recognize this product code on your listing’s page. Thus, when somebody searches for a particular product, your listing will appear at a higher position on the result page.
  • We have been offering free image hosting to GarageSale users for a few years now, but so far we’ve always excluded images using in ‘Good Till Canceled’ (GTC) listings from that service. This was because we deleted images on our server after 60 days to make room for new pictures – a strategy that didn’t work, if your GTC listing is available a lot longer than that.
    With the upcoming shutdown date for .Mac/mobileMe web hosting on June 30, 2012, which has been very popular among our users for hosting images used in GTC listings, we realized we need an easy-to-use replacement.
    Therefore GarageSale 6.4 adds a paid service for storing images for your GTC listings, starting at USD3.99/month.
    You can sign up for that service directly from within GarageSale’s preferences panel.
  • We improved the popular automatic re-listing feature, which starts new listings once you item has sold out on eBay. Now this feature is linked with GarageSale’s inventory management. If you have less inventory in stock than what you are offering for sale in your auction template, GarageSale will not start the auction.
  • GarageSale now offers an overseas surcharge field for sellers on, where they can specify an additional shipping charge if the item ships to Hawaii, Puerto Ricco, or other US-oversea areas.

The complete release notes are available on the GarageSale download page.

1,000,000 GarageSale Listings Promo Sale

Update (February 3, 2012): As the listing count dropped to 991,076 this morning, the promotional sale is officially closed now.

Original post:

We finally crossed the mark of more than 1,000,000 available eBay listings that were created with GarageSale. It took us more than seven years of constant improvements to reach this point, so we are more than pleased with this accomplishment.

To celebrate this achievement, we are offering GarageSale for Mac at 50% off for a limited time (*). That’s $19.99 instead of $39.99 for the single user license, and $32.99 instead of $65.99 for the family license.

*As always, there’s a twist. The discount offer is good until the number of GarageSale listings on eBay drops below 1,000,000 for the first time, or this week ends – whatever comes first.
At the time of this writing there are 1,001,1689 listings available. This number could go below one million any minute, so you better be quick. We update the listing count right on the GarageSale homepage every 20 minutes.

You can purchase GarageSale at the discounted price directly within the application or from the Mac App Store.
