Fixing GarageSale after recent OS X security updates

In the past 2 days we have received numerous reports from GarageSales users running OS X versions 10.8 up to 10.10, for whom GarageSale suddenly stopped working with this error message:


We suspect that the recent rounds of security updates from April, 8th caused changes on some Macs, that prevent OS X, and thus GarageSale, from correctly evaluating the SSL certificates installed on eBay’s API servers – resulting in the error shown above.

If your are affected by this problem and absolutely have to use GarageSale, here are instructions on how to get GarageSale working again right away. Please be advised that by following these instructions, you are effectively disabling security measures that protect your data. If a hypothetic attacker would able to insert himself into the connection between you and eBay, he would able to read all the information passed between GarageSale and eBay’s server.

Having said that, here’s what to do:

  1. Quit GarageSale
  2. Open Safari and go to https://api.ebay.com.
  3. Click on the lock icon in front of the address field if you are not greeted by an error panel immediately
  4. Click the “Show Certificate” button
  5. Check the “always trust” checkbox for the “api.ebay.com” certificate
  6. Click “Continue”

We are hoping to come up with definitive fix in the next couple of days.

GarageBuy 3.2 fixes UI glitches on OS X Yosemite

If you were using GarageBuy on OS X Yosemite, you probably noticed that the pop-over windows for displaying search options and suggestions looked at little odd.
Version 3.2 of GarageBuy fixes this problem. Unfortunately we had to raise the minimum system requirement to OS X 10.9 in the process. Therefore GarageBuy 3.1 will remain available from the downloads page for user running OS X 10.7 and 10.8.

Bei der Startberatung unterstützt ein persönlicher Berater neue Händler beim eBay-Einstieg. Außerdem entfallen verschiedene eBay Gebühren für 3 Monate.

Und so funktioniert es:

– Sie nehmen erfolgreich an eBay’s Startberatung über unseren Partner-Link teil

– Nach dem erfolgreichen Abschluss der Startberatung wird Ihre eBay Account für die Benutzung von GarageSale 6 freigeschaltet. Dieser Vorgang kann bis zu 48h dauern.

– Autorisieren Sie nun Ihren eBay Account in GarageSale. Das können Sie während des initialen Einrichtungsprozess von GarageSale tun, oder falls dies schon geschehen ist, aus GarageSales “Einstellungen”-Fenster in der Rubrik “Konten” tun. Dort klicken Sie bitte auf den Knopf “Zugriffstoken erneuern”.

Ist ihr eBay Account bereits freigeschaltet, dann erscheint eine Nachricht, dass GarageSale erfolgreich registriert wurde. Erscheint diese Nachricht nicht, dann wiederholen Sie die Autorisierungsprozess bitte noch einmal nach 24 Stunden.

Viel Spass beim Verkaufen auf eBay wünscht Ihr iwascoding Team.
