Free Image Uploads Temporary unavailable

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Dear GarageSale Users,

because of a scheduled maintenance downtime, uploading new auction images to GarageSale’s Free Image Server will not be available for you during the following time period:


Australia (Sydney): 23.Nov, 9:00 a.m. – 23.Nov, 9:00 p.m.
Central Europe (Berlin): 22.Nov, 23:00 – 23.Nov, 11.00
USA (New York): 22.Nov, 5:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 5:00 a.m.
USA (San Francisco): 22.Nov, 2:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 2:00 a.m.

Auction images uploaded prior to that time period are not affected. These images will be served from a fail-over machine.

Our primary server’s hosting provider is moving its datacenter to a new building in a different city. We are using the opportunity to put additional hard drives into the server.

If you need to start auctions during the maintenance period, we suggest you configure GarageSale to use a different image hosting option or to perform the image upload prior to the downtime by submitting the auction to eBay using eBay’s scheduling option.

This temporary outage will effect GarageSale, GarageSale Basic, GarageSale HD on iPad, and GarageSale Touch on iPhone – but only if they are set to use GarageSale’s Free Image server for image storage.

We are sorry for any inconveniences this causes for you.

GarageSale Touch 1.1 now available

Version 1.1 of GarageSale Touch, our auction listing application for the iPhone, has just been approved by Apple and is available from the iTunes AppStore. The new release supports eBay’s auction scheduler, letting you submit an auction to eBay before its actual start time. Users can now select which image they want to use as Gallery image for an auction.

GarageSale touch now displays the number of watchers and page views for tracked auctions. We also fixed bugs related to specifying item attributes in certain categories and exporting auctions to the desktop version of GarageSale.

iwascoding joins eBay’s Certified Provider Program

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

We are proud to announce that we have been qualified by eBay to join their Certified Provider Program.

Being a Certified Provider means that we were able to demonstrate a certain level of expertise and experience in the eBay’s technologies and marketplace. And that wasn’t easy to accomplish.

Not only are we the first company with a Mac desktop application to be allowed in the Certified Provider Program – we are also the first non-US based company carrying this title.

We’d like to thank all GarageSale users who made this possible with their testimonials and success stories.
