GarageSale 8 Pricing

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

Since we first introduced GarageSale in 2004 eBay has changed a lot, which has implication on our business as well.

In the past years, the number of small, casual sellers using GarageSale has declined. This group was GarageSale's target audience when first launched 15 years ago. At the same time the share of professional and semi-professional sellers among our users has went up.

As a result, we have now less, but more ambitious GarageSale users. To keep publishing GarageSale a viable business, we are introducing a dual license model with the upcoming GarageSale 8 (due very shortly):

If you are listing less than 50 items on eBay per month and don't need the 'Synching' feature, the upgrade process won't change compared to previous paid upgrades.
You can purchase or upgrade to GarageSale 8 for a one time fee of $39.99 (new license) or $19.99 (upgrade fee). The upgrade will be free of charge if you purchased GarageSale 7 after April 1st, 2018.

However, if you are listing more than 50 items per month, you'll need a GarageSale Pro subscription for $14.99/month (can be canceled any time) or $149.99/year, which includes these benefits:

  • Free major upgrades
  • Unlimited listing starts
  • Database Synching between Macs
  • Use GarageSale's image service for GTC listings with support for up to 50 larger images per listing

We don't take this step easily. We discussed different licensing models, and decided that our chosen model is the most likely to keep small sellers onboard, while not placing too much financial burden on larger sellers.

We are looking forward to the release of GarageSale 8. We’re sure you’ll love the new features and improvements.

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018

GarageSale 7.0.11 restores uploading images to eBay’s picture service, after eBay changed the way to its image service works. eBay is right now rolling out these changes to its servers.

GarageSale 7.0.9 supports eBay’s new Link Policy

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

eBay once again changed the rules governing what content is allowed in listings: Clickable image links and images that aren’t loaded via the secure HTTPS-protocol aren’t anymore.

But don’t worry, our latest GarageSale update has your perfectly covered: Image inserted into your listing description are no longer clickable links. Also, these images are now loaded via the HTTPS-protocol, if you are using our free image server.

If you have active listings that currently don’t meet eBay’s new requirements, please read our guide on how to revise those using GarageSale and make them adhere to the new rules.

Also, if you have non-compliant active listings that weren’t created with GarageSale, we have something for you: After you have imported your active listings from My eBay into GarageSale, the new ‘Repair Image Links’ command will search your listing descriptions and strip links from images embedded there. Furthermore, if those images are accessible via HTTPS, it will change your listings description accordingly. All that’s left for you is to issue a bulk-revise on the updated listings. With fewer than a dozen clicks you will be all set for eBay’s new rules.

Most importantly, pictures uploaded to GarageSale's free image hosting service are now embedded into your listing's description using the HTTPS protocol.
