Does anyone know which was the last version that worked with a PPC Mac running Leopard?

Doesn't work at all and doesn't transfer anything from Paypal despite having followed their instructions, and they don't reply to support requests. So nothing good to say about this piece of software.

Seconded! Just spent the last 30min requesting - and re-requesting API credentials - and it still didn't work despite following their instructions to the letter [which - BTW - are also out of date]. Avoid until these shortcomings are rectified

Seems to charge you a fee for transaction made through the api of Garagepay. For instance, a payment of 50€ is charged 0.85€ with Garagepay but making the transaction through the Paypal site is free for this amount. The advantages of seeing the totality of your transactions through Garagepay seems very much offset by the fees collected through Garagepay.

It's been ages since I tried this app for a few minutes and never returned so I might be a bit hazy and apologize if I am wrong, however I do not think garagepay even has the functionality to pay someone/business through the app. It is merely aimed at putting a pretty UI, well it's not pretty, but anyways it's to make your paypal transactions more manageable as you can either download the transaction info from paypal and open it in 50 other good db applications or use this app to get the information streamlined and hurrying up your workflow. It is not a browser replacement for paying people via paypal's API so I don't see where your charges are coming from and thank goodness you have this app to spread all the info out and you can finger the culprit! Sorry if I am wrong, I just don't think that is the app's aim or even capability.

Great app for quickly tracking purchase history and printing shipping labels quickly for my online & eBay store.

I know it's a completely different system, but Amazon payments would be useful too.

This is a great app. I got it on MUPromo for a great price, I don't think I'd buy it for it's full price.
It's a better way to load PayPal data in public because you don't need your password to log on. You can just open it, look through and search through transactions - even find them without internet. It's stability could use some help, I've had a few crashes - though it's still great. They should make a mobile version (iPhone) because the PayPal app for iPhone requires you to enter your password every time... I use 1Password, I can't really remember it.

Cool, connecting to my Paypal account was very easy.

Nice app, nice gui and workflow, but a bit too expensive for a "normal" paypal account (with no shopping cart etc...).

Maybe you should think to do a Lite version.

I love being able to launch this app to look at my current PayPal status. It is also invaluable to perform PayPal searches on my desktop. However after beta 6 this has become an app that I hate. It decides which transactions to download and not download, which to transactions have details and which don't. I finally gave up and went back to beta 6 and all is working again. So, I would normally give this 4 stars, but this 1 star rating is for versions after beta 6.

This is a useless program. It does not download the item descriptions. You can get more information by downloading the QIF file format from PayPal and importing into a financial program, such as iBank. That way you obtain all the information for each transaction that PayPal offers. The developer's response is that the PayPal toolkit doesn't offer the item description. Too bad they don't tell you that before you buy the program.

Great app and one I would love to have, but I agree with you; it is entirely too much $. Hopefully it will be on the MacUpdate Promo or macZOT soon.


It only seems that way, but the price is probably what it is because the USD is so worthless.


Agreed. $25 is waaaaay too much money for this one-trick pony.

Call me when it's $9.99 or less. Or better yet, a $1.99 iPhone app.
