Feature Overview

Listing Creator

GarageSale's main goal is to provide you with everything that you need to create and start attractive eBay listings - with ease. To meet this goal GarageSale offers all the needed eBay options for private and for business sellers and lets you edit and style your item description and images.
GarageSale helps you with complexity of the eBay system by keeping you informed about potential eBay traps and error messages. Listing on eBay is fun again!

Tracking

GarageSale tracks the state of your listings and orders. It shows all information about your listing, like current bid, watchers, sold item, listing fees and everything else.
When a listing has finished you'll be informed about the buyer's name, the address and all important transaction details. The order state is synced with eBay.

Synching

If you work with GarageSale on severals Macs you might find the Synching feature helpful. Once enabled your GarageSale database will be synched between your Macs. Please see the Synching chapter in the manual for all details.
GarageSale Pro only

Orders

GarageSale's Orders sections keeps tracks of incoming orders. It shows information about the order status, purchased items and provides you with all buyer details that you need to process the order and to ship your items.
If needed you can communicate with your buyers by sending an eBay message. Once the item is shipped, upload the tracking ID to eBay and leave feedback right from within GarageSale.

Packing Slips and Invoices

Print generic shipping labels or packing slips that you can add to the shipment or use them to find the ordered items in your warehouse. You have a label printer? Simply print the buyer's address using the address label template (29mm).
Create invoices by sending the data from your orders to the GrandTotal invoice application.

Revise, Relist, Auto-Restart

If you need to modify a listing after starting it, you can do this easily from within GarageSale.
Finished listings that haven't received any bids or didn't sell can be relisted without paying listing fees twice (depending on eBay's relisting policy). GarageSale is also giving you control about what listing attributes to update. This way you can keep your recent sales score for fixed price items and retain your Best Match rank in eBay's search result.

The automatic restart feature starts new listings once your item has sold out on eBay. Using "re-list" will preserve the existing search rank of your ended listing and carry it over to the re-listed listing. 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 listing, GarageSale will not start the listing.

To revise, relist or to stop a listing open the "More" button in GarageSale's toolbar or the "Listing" menu in GarageSale's menu bar.

150 Mobile-Friendly Designs

Our free listing designs offer an easy way to make your listings vastly more attractive. GarageSale comes with 150 customizable listing designs for you to choose from. With a fingertip you can fine-tune them in the "Properties" inspector and define how images and description are laid out.

In addition, GarageSale offers so-called Pro Designs which let you create highly professional listings. Easily add your store name, store categories, logo and individual text boxes for shipping details, payments, returns, etc. If you run an eBay store you'll love them. 5 Pro Designs are already included in GarageSale, more are available in the built-in Design Store.

Free Picture Hosting

The quality and number of your images is crucial for the success of your listing. Store up to 20 images per listings with a size of up to 1600px on our servers. If you subscribe to GarageSale Pro you can add up to 50(!) images to your item description.
Of course you can also use eBay's Picture Service (EPS) which supports up to 12 images per listing. If you want to use your own web server for image hosting you can do that, as well (FTP and WebDAV Upload).
Please note:
1. If you wish to use GarageSale's picture service for Good Till Cancelled listings (fixed-price items), a GarageSale Pro subscription is required.
2. The images are stored for 60 days on our servers. So, if you make use of GarageSale's free picture service and want to relist your listing, make sure to use GarageSale built-in relist function. If you relist through the eBay web form, there's no way for GarageSale to notice and prolong the picture life time.
GarageSale Pro: 50 images per listing

Apply Current Changes from eBay

You made changes on your listing outside GarageSale? No problem. Just select the active or ended listing and from the "Listing" menu choose "Apply Current Changes from eBay". This allows you to compare your local listing and the listing on eBay and apply selected changes to your local listing in GarageSale.

Import Listings from eBay

If you already have listings online at eBay, GarageSale can easily import them so you can keep working with them. Simply go to File > Import > Import From My eBay.

Image Editing

Easily add images to your listings and refine them directly in GarageSale. You can crop or rotate them, add forms and text, open them in an external image editor (if installed) and add image captions (if supported by the selected listing design).

Instant Error Reporting

Whenever GarageSale detects a problem or receives an error from the eBay system, the affected option will be marked in GarageSale's Inspector and Preview mode. This way you get instant feedback what needs to be done. Click on the error icon in the Inspector sidebar to show the error description.

In addition GarageSale offers local live validation of most eBay errors in new "Preflight" panel for one or multiple selected listings.

Inventory

You can define inventory products and assign them title, pricing information, images, quantity, SKU and barcode (EAN/UPC).
You can link your listing or a variation from a variation-enabled listing with your product through the SKU field. Every time an item sells, GarageSale will decrease the remaining quantity for the linked product.

Did you already know?: You can easily create a new 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.

Reports

It's crucial to your business success to keep track of your eBay income and expenses. Use the Report Generator to stay in control of your business.
It lets you create custom reports showing the data you are interested in, including PayPal and eBay fees, for any given date range. Reports can generate diagrams or text tables and you can export your data to a CSV file.

Account Overview

All your important account information at a glance. In addition you can contact buyers using eBay's messaging system and keep track of your PayPal transactions.

Scheduled Starts

GarageSale supports eBay's own (paid) scheduler option but also offers its own graphical scheduler. The built-in scheduler can start one or more listings at the given time (GarageSale has to be running). It can be used at no cost.

eBay Stores

GarageSale fully supports eBay stores. Just download your store categories in the "Accounts" preferences panel and you're ready to go.

If you want to create listings which contain a list of your store categories, pick one of GarageSale's so-called Pro Designs, e.g. "Pro: Top Seller". This way you can promote your store and make your viewers to have a look at your other store items.

Variations

GarageSale supports eBay's variation feature. You can list several variations of your items, for instance shoes in different sizes or t-shirts in different colors, in a single listing.
The variation feature integrates with GarageSale's inventory tracking function.

Batch Editing

Controls in Inspector apply to all selected items: Changing any control in GarageSale's inspector changes that value (e.g. duration, starting price, shipping info) for all selected listings, making batch changes to your listings a lot easier.

In addition GarageSale's new "Bulk Find and Replace" feature (in the "Edit" menu) lets you replace parts of your item description, title and other fields in multiple listings at once.
That's not all: You can copy specific settings from one listing and paste them into other listings. Simply right-click on a listing in the sidebar and select "Copy Listing Components"/"Paste Listing Components".

Dark Mode

GarageSale supports Dark Mode appearance on macOS 10.14 Mojave and higher.

Take Photos with your iPhone

On macOS 10.14 Mojave and higher GarageSale supports the "Continuity Camera" feature: Use your iPhone or iPad to take a picture of your product and it appears instantly as a new image in your GarageSale listing.

iPhone Barcode Scanner

Use your iPhone as a barcode scanner! With our free helper app "GarageSale Scout" for iOS you can prepare listings and edit the title, add images and scan barcodes! You can then import them with GarageSale on your Mac and refine them further. Very helpful if you have a bunch of items you need to prepare for listing.

Customizable Listing Icon Colors

Listing icons in GarageSale's left outline view are fully customizable in the Preferences window. You can define a custom color for each listing state and in addition display colored title backgrounds to make different listing states even more distinguishable.

FTP and WebDAV Image Serving

Let GarageSale upload as many images as you like to your web server via FTP or WebDAV without paying image hosting fees to eBay. While GarageSale allows you to use its Free Image Hosting service or eBay's Picture Service (EPS) for storing your listing images, it can also upload your images to your own webserver. GarageSale will automatically scale your images to the selected size before it uploads them.
