OverviewWhat's NewFeaturesScreenshotsDownloadsPricingSupportReviews

New in GarageSale 8GarageSale 8 introduces many new major features, significant performance improvements and the new "Pro" subscription service. See below an overview over the most important changes.Notes on updating to GarageSale 8.1:
Once updated to 8.1 we don't recommend switching back to GarageSale 8.0.x. The previous version wouldn't recognize the new eBay order IDs used by GarageSale 8.1.
Also, if you are using the Mac-to-Mac synching feature of GarageSale Pro, please note that GarageSale 8.1 uses an updated database schema, which older version of GarageSale cannot handle.

Synching

If you work with GarageSale on several Macs you might find the new Synching feature helpful. Once enabled your GarageSale database will be synched between your Macs. The Synching feature requires a GarageSale Pro subscription.
Please visit the Synching chapter in the help for all details.

Drastic Performance Improvements

GarageSale's overall performance has been improved drastically. Searching, evaluating of smart groups, generation of reports and processing data from eBay is faster than ever. You'll feel the difference compared to previous versions.

GarageSale Pro

GarageSale Pro is a new subscription service, ideal for sellers with a high sales volume and everyone who wants to be able to sync their GarageSale data between different Macs.
  • Free major upgrades
  • Unlimited listing starts
  • Database Synching between Macs
  • Auto-Cancel option for GTC listings can be used
  • Use GarageSale's image service for GTC listings
  • GarageSale's image service supports up to 50 large images per listing

Dark Mode

GarageSale 8 adds support for the macOS Dark Mode appearance.

Customizable Listing Icon Colors

Listing icons in GarageSale's left outline view are now fully customizable. 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.

Packing Slips and Address Labels

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).

Detachable Popover Windows

You can "detach" a popup from its original position and move it to a permanent location on your screen. Great for preventing it from auto-closing while switching to another app or for working on multiple listings at the same time.

Bulk Find and Replace

GarageSale 8 comes with a powerful search and replace function that works on the entire database or the current selection. Easily edit title, description and other fields of all your listings in one go. (You find this new feature in the Edit menu.)

Apply Current Changes from eBay

You made changes on your listing outside GarageSale? That's no longer a problem! Simply compare your local listing and listing on eBay and apply selected changes to your local listing in GarageSale.
(You find this new feature in the Listing menu.)

Reworked Design Templates

  • Mobile-friendly and fully responsive to different screen sizes (smartphone, tablet, computer)
  • Modernized graphics, improved for retina displays
  • Styles: Most of the designs now come with different styles to choose from (in Properties Inspector)
  • Image Zoom: Images are now zoomable in many layouts
  • New option to use the image name as the image 'alt' attribute (advanced option)

Support for Continuity Camera

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

Create Invoices With GrandTotal

You can now create invoices by sending the data from your orders to the GrandTotal invoice application.

Parts Compatibility

When listing vehicle parts, you can now specify a list of compatible vehicles on eBay USA Motors, eBay Germany, eBay Australia and eBay UK. Make sure the category you selected supports parts compatibility.
Multiple found vehicles can be selected by holding the shift key, and added by double-clicking.

CSV Import for Listings

GarageSale can import listings from files in arbitrary CSV formats. You can specify what column in your CSV file is mapped to what listing or inventory field in GarageSale.
Instead of importing you can also instruct GarageSale to just update existing listings with the same SKU.

Automatic Cancellation

When offering items at a fixed-price, you can tell GarageSale to cancel your listings a certain period before eBay automatically renews them. Please note, that this is an internal GarageSale feature, so GarageSale needs to be running periodically to perform the cancellation.
Once activated, an additional icon is shown in the outline view next to the listing. There are also new smart group rules that allow you to filter for listings having auto-cancel enabled.
The auto-cancel feature requires a GarageSale Pro subscription.

New "Global Status" smart group property

GarageSale 8.1 adds a new smart group rule called "Global Status", which simplifies selecting listings depending on their state, as each listing falls into one of three possible categories: Prepared, Running, Ended. Previously, you had to use the "Status" rule, which offered 7 different states, making smart group setup quite cumbersome in some cases.

New "Use Remaining Quantity" option

When revising or relisting there's a new "Use 'Quantity Left' as new Quantity" checkbox to specify the remaining quantity on eBay as the new quantity. In addition, the quantity that GarageSale will upload to eBay for each listing is displayed. Both protects you from accidentally offering a higher quantity than you have in stock.

Advanced settings for "Import from eBay"

Retrieving a complete list of running listings from eBay can take some time, especially if you have a lot of listings on your accounts. You can narrow down what listings to import by specifying filters for data, category and SKU, thus reducing the wait time significantly.
Also, you can now remove design HTML during "Import from My eBay": When importing listings from eBay that were started with GarageSale, the description used to include HTML elements, e.g. from a previously used design. To address this issue there's now a "Remove design from description" checkbox, which tries to strip GarageSale design HTML from the imported description.
