GarageSale 8.4 Released

We just released GarageSale 8.4, an update to our eBay selling software for macOS. The new version adds suport for eBay’s new authorization mechanism which is a requirement to use new APIs rolled out by eBay.

The support for this new authorization mechanism enabled us to fix the Product search feature in GarageSale, after our previous implementation broke when eBay deprecated its underlaying API.

Once you refresh your token from GarageSale’s preferences, your can link a product from eBay’s catalog with your listing works again, as GarageSale can now use eBay’s new replacement API (which requires an a new-style authentication token).

GarageBuy’s future is uncertain

Today we received confirmation from eBay that we won’t receive commission payments for successful bids and orders placed through our free app GarageBuy (macOS version, iOS version) anymore.

Since these commission payments paid for GarageBuy’s maintenance and improvement since 2006, we have to decide whether or not its worthwhile to continue offering GarageBuy at all — or if we can come up with a sustainable alternative business model to keep it alive.

Unfortunately, eBay’s communication on this issue was all but crystal clear, making us believe we’d simply need to change GarageBuy to use a new eBay API to keep receiving commissions. Only after several inquiries from our side, we were able to receive confirmation that we won’t receive any compensation at all by mid-September (that’s next week).

We know that there a a lot of collectors that spend a lot of time in GarageBuy searching and bidding on eBay listing, in turn generating a revenue for eBay itself. It seems eBay decided it is better off without that business…

If you have any idea about GarageBuys future you’d like to share with us, please let us know here.
