GarageSale 4 hits the streets!

Friday, January 11th, 2008

GarageSale 4 is now shipping. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to call this “The most extensive update in GarageSale history!“. Read on to find out why we think so:

Greatly improved interface
We invested a lot of effort in making sure the interface harmonizes perfectly with the world of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) – while still offering a familiar experience to long-time GarageSalers. The distinct modes for auctions and template have been unified into a single view where each item is accessible with a single click.

Preview editing
Now edit your auctions without ever leaving preview mode. This includes not only the title, description, and images – you can also specify categories and set item attributes there too. You never have to switch between the auction edit and preview modes again!

Our updated GarageSale tutorial movie should give you an idea of how editing in preview mode feels like.

If you’ve been using custom auction designs in GarageSale, you’ll be delighted to hear that your existing designs will get all theses features ‘for free’ – no code tweaking required. (And yes, you can still edit templates the traditional way if you prefer.)

Faster auction uploads
Since most new Macs ship with multiple CPUs, it only made sense for us to rewrite GarageSale’s auction upload engine from scratch to take advantage of this. GarageSale will now upload auctions and images concurrently.

Graphical auction scheduling
GarageSale’s built-in auction scheduler has grown up. Auctions can now be scheduled with drag-and-drop – just like you’re used to from your favorite calendar application.

Improved eBay messaging
With past versions of GarageSale you could send messages to buyers or view incoming messages via eBay’s messaging system. We’ve now taken this one step further: You can reply to incoming questions from within the application itself. And whether or not a question has been answered is synchronized over multiple copies of GarageSale, making this a killer feature for small businesses.

PayPal integration
GarageSale 4 can monitor multiple PayPal accounts for incoming payments. See your accounts history with a single click instead of waiting for PayPal’s web page to load.

Even more auction designs
As if the number of auction themes wasn’t already overwhelming, our design team has been busy adding 8 new ones for GarageSale 4. As usual, each encompasses multiple layouts – actually making it 20 different designs. You can see why we stopped counting the number of possible design variants a long time ago.

For more information please visit the GarageSale homepage.

As with previous versions you’re welcome to try before you buy GarageSale 4: Download GarageSale right now and post three auctions to eBay. If you like what you see you can purchase a license for USD/EUR 29.99. (If you already own a license for GarageSale you can upgrade for just USD/EUR 14.99.)

Will you be attending MacWorld 2008? We’d love to give you a first-hand demonstration of GarageSale’s amazing new features at our booth #2544. Be sure to ask us about the special show offer for MacWorld attendees.

Meet us at MacWorld 2008 (Far Right Corner)

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008
Once again we secured ourselves at booth at MacWorld. This year our booth number is 2544, which is located in the main hall’s far right corner (seen from the main entrance of the hall). Click here for a larger piece of the floor map.

This is your chance to meet us in person and get a presentation of GarageSale’s new features from its creators! We be also demoing GarageBuy, our tool for finding and purchasing items on eBay.

For your amusement here are some photos taken during MacWorld 2006 and MacWorld 2007.

GarageBuy 1.2 Released

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

GarageBuy (our free application for searching and buying stuff on eBay) has been updated to version 1.2.
We are now using a different way to retrieve simple search results from eBay. This change not only makes searching faster, it also removes the need to authorize GarageBuy for your eBay account. For more sophisticated searches and for bidding on items you still need to authorize GarageBuy, though.

GarageBuy now also supports proximity searches around your ZIP code and lets send auctions to your friends by e-mail easily.

More information can be found on the GarageBuy page.

eBay Store Redesign

Monday, December 17th, 2007

We updated the design of our eBay Store just in time for the final christmas shopping season. Since our old store design didn’t leave a big impression, this move was overdue.

You can visit our eBay store here. We’d also like to hear how you like our store’s new look.

GarageSale 3.4 Released

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

We just released GarageSale 3.4, a highly recommended update for all users already running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (but there is no reason to skip this update for Tiger users, either).

GarageSale 3.4 add support eBay’s new ‘Community Driven’ item specifics system, which lets you add your own attributes to your listing instead of having to stick with the ones eBay’s old system presented you (Manual Link).

We also added to ability to specify deposit settings per auction when selling cars on eBay Motors US. ( Manual Link).

This version also fixes a serious issue with Mac OS X Leopard and GarageSale’s scheduler.

For a complete list of changes, please see GarageSale’s version history.

Again, this update is free no matter where and when you got your GarageSale license. More information is available from the GarageSale website.
