If you have moved from windows you will be disappointed with eBay software on Mac IMO. I am quite a big eBay seller and used to use the Toaster Poster (FREE) on windows & have found Garagesale to be the best so far - but still lacks VERY basic functions. I do use Garagesale but it is frustrating to me and limits my selling on eBay - and costs me time. Due to this extra time I list about 1/4 what I would with decent software. Main gripes: 1) It doesn't support two or more sellers account properly. You will no doubt have different terms, shipping options, sales blurb etc for each account. Garagesale only has one main pref for everything so that has to be used for all unless you manually change it all 2) No template or copperplate tags...ie if you put {terms} then the Terms you have specified under the templates with appear when you list the advert. This means if your terms change then you change the terms ONCE and all your adverts are correct. With Garagesale you have to go & manually edit every advert - USELESS FOR HIGH VOLUME SELLERS! 3) There is no tables for items sold with amounts owing etc - again making the program unuseable for checking off payments. Same with addresses / items sold. Still have to do it live on eBays seller manager wasting more time. 4) Photos from the net can not be dragged & dropped into an advert. You have to save to disk & then add - wasting more time 5) Photos from one advert can not be dragged to another advert 6) If you use a black / dark background the cursor is invisible when typing meaning you don't know where the cursor is. 7) Bulk edit is missing some vital functions. ie if you want to list a batch of adverts on the AUS eBay site you have to edit each one manually. 8) Search function is better than it used to be, but when you find an item you still can't put it somewhere useful so you know where is is once you clear the search - making it useless. 9) Entering the postage prices for each item is too tedious - too many clicks. It's the best I've tried on Mac - but worth about 1/4 the price for small sellers - almost useless for high volume sellers.

I have been on eBay a long time. I do not do this for a business, I just sell my own things as I change my collections and such around. That or I sell things for friends and give them the money for them. I have used Garage Sale for quite some time. I have Version 7.0.17b2 (851). I use a Mac. As things set now with it, I would stay away from this program. My view since the new updates what was a fairly decent program before, now is not. It took a very good down hill turn for the worst. In the past I would recommend this program, however now I would suggest you stay away from it. It was never the fastest, and there is a learning curve with it, but now. No. Yes it has some nice features, however the new version down load, just for me is uneventful and a big slow down. There is a bug with this version. More accurately put there are more than one bug you may run into, but I will tell you about the most annoying one. You can get your whole listing set up on Garage Sale. You have downloaded the photos in your photo's section on your computer for the item you wish to sell.. Now using the garage sale program you go up and hit "load photos". It takes you over to where your photo's are. The problem is it does not "see" the most recently uploaded photos on your computer. Yet they are there in plain view on your computer. Even by going up and hit the refresh button under photo section on Garage Sale they do not show up to upload to Garage Sale. The only way Garage Sale will "see your photos" is if you go and sign out of Garage Sale totally and sign back in. Then you can go to photos and "poof" they will be there. Can you see how this will slow you down? I just quit using is. Neither hitting the download/refresh click under Photo's on Garage Sale, nor going up to the very top and hitting the refresh button (which seldom if ever works by the way), does not help. I have emailed their support countless times on a several different bugs on this and they do respond and work to fix it but this is still unfixed. The last email basically said, this is an issue they have run into and so has several users and the only remedy for it is to just sign out and back in each time if you want to load them. Well that is time consuming, annoying and non productive. In fact it is so annoying I am not using Garage Sale much if at all any anymore. I have tried the eBay phone app which is slick but does not a simple way to put in terms and conditions as I type faster than I text. It would be nice if it had a section where you can type in reoccurring terms and conditions and have them post on every listing automatically. Then hands down the eBay app would be the fastest and slickest way to list and a lot faster than Garage Sale even when it was working the way it should. I am using the eBay computer program for listing now. It is simple to cut and paste my reoccurring terms and conditions. If you factor in everything with the bugs on Garage Sale, to me the eBay listing tool works just as good and faster than Garage Sale. I am just a user that has used Garage Sale for a long time, I have no vested interest in any other listing software program. Just giving my unbiased view of it. I have mailed eBay a letter explaining two things I would like to see on their phone app. If they do this, I will use their phone app hands down. For now i will not. As for investing in Garage Sale, based on the current bugs I have had with it, I would not invest the money in it. When it worked flawlessly I would have given it a four. Now I can only rate it a one.

I am a long time eBayer (since 96), but just started using GarageSale this year. This software is amazing. I have saved so much time listing through GS. I get compliments on my professional templates and listings. For the amount of functionality in this product, you simply can't go wrong. I've read some of the other reviews here and I simply don't understand where they are coming from. Its really not that hard to use and I highly recommend it to anyone.

I was a long term users of GS and seller on eBay since 1999. I stop listing items on eBay for just over a year due to disputes with eBay over its illegal billings practices. I decided to try the site once again only to discover that version 6 of GS no longer listed items. I upgraded to version 7 at a cost of $19.95. I frankly hated the decision of the company behind GS to adopt Apple's new flat OS appearance within version 7! Much more importantly I found a major flaw with the program within a few minutes of using it. Many categories on eBay now require a minimum number of attributes. If you list an item within one of these categories and verify your listing you will receive an error message that your item is missing attributes. To fix this you must click the "Attributes" field under the listing's Options tab. When you do this you are presented with a long list of eBay's suggested attributes. In most cases only one or two are required by eBay so you can dismiss the rest by clicking a small minus symbol (-) by each one and leaving the remaining attributes at their default values. Having to constantly dismiss these unwanted attributes was going to be wasting many hours of my time so I brought this to the attention of the GS development team. It was obvious to me that GS7 knew the difference between those attributes which were required and those which were not required so why not add a preference to GS7 to not to show the non required attributes. This would save having to constantly dismiss the unwanted attributes with each new listing. I was then asked by the development team to join the beta testing for version 8. It was also at this time the development team disclosed to me their new pricing model for version 8. Users will only be permitted to list 50 free listings per month. If you list more than that you need to buy a subscription for $14.99 a month. I find it utterly dishonest of the company to not disclose this fact on their site and continue selling version 7. This information is only discussed in their special version 8 forum which only accessible by invitation. The development team claims they need to charge a monthly fee due to the lack of sales with previous versions. Upon using version 8 beta what did I find? I found they had implemented my suggestion under Preferences > eBay > Advanced > Attributes Panel. One can now choose: Insert suggested attributes; Insert required attributes; or Leave blank. I complained within their special beta 8 forum which can't be seen by the general public. I complained about the team not fixing this obvious major flaw in the two years version 7 has been out. I complained about the new pricing model. I complained that the company choose to call this major bug fix a new feature in GS8 instead of fixing GS7. I received a reply from another user within the forum stating that I was mistaken because I had not taken enough time to evaluate the product. That can't be true because they added my suggestion to GS8 within days. The other poster said there was nothing wrong with version 7 and its great. That can't be true because the company claims they must now charge a subscription fee because their upgrades and new purchases no longer make them enough money. I was told I was using the program wrong as the other poster had never encountered this problem with attributes. If this other poster was listing on the U.S. site then that can't be true and is a lie. If the other poster was listing on a eBay site in another country that does not require attributes then the other poster is not qualified to issue an opinion on the matter. I was told there is nothing wrong with the new pricing model as it works great for the other poster's store. A store is a waste of money as it requires a monthly fee plus now an added monthly fee for using GS8. A store requires one to constantly monitor sales and stop what they are doing to pack and ship items. I like my long term business model much better as its far cheaper and far more efficient. Construct items within GS and list the standard 50 items per month without insertion fees. Wait to list the rest during one of eBay's free insertion days. I pay no insertion fees and no store fees. All items are completed within 7 to 10 days and shipped out within 1 or 2 days and I am free to use my time for other things. I got banned for calling the other poster "incompetent". Talk about being a poster child for the snowflake movement. That is exactly what the poster is. He or she lacks the knowledge, experience, skills to properly issue opinions on any of the subjects he or she addressed and/or he or she is a liar. Version 7 has been out for 2 years and this major flaw was not fixed, wasting thousands of man hours. That os incompetence at its highest level! I previously told the development team that eBay was intentionally lackey users for Gallery Plus fees that they did not order and then blaming GarageSale. There has never been a documented case of this happening. If this had been the case then eBay can easily ban GS from interacting with its API. The development team said there was nothing wrong with GS but said this eBay practice was just part of the cost of doing business with eBay. No, its fraud on a massive scale which has now been forwarded to the FTC. Unfortunately the development team appears to be going down the dark side and has become a eBay lackey willing to dismiss any of eBay's wrong doings, even when eBay lies about GS.

I bought GarageSale back in 2005 and now have bought a paid update for the second time. So I already spent some bucks on this software. But after upgrading to the version 7 I had to realise that all my saved templates and auctions from the past 12 years had vanished without a trace! In the update notes there was nothing about an incompatibility between the databases of past versions to the recent version. I didn't get a warning that my templates would be erased, they were just gone without notice! I emailed the support and asked whether I can retrieve my database or if it is gone for good, but they didn't even bother to answer me! That is no way how to treat a recurrent customer! Aside from that the interface has become more and more unclear from update to update. What used to be a slim and handy tool to upload lots of auctions to eBay has become a unnecessarily blown up piece of software with many useless functions and a mediocre user interface. Too bad! I really can't recommend that software anymore. This was the last time I bought an upgrade for this software!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Everything has moved. WHY? My fonts have changed. WHY? The colours are bland and nothing stands out. Can't tell the difference between what's on-line, what's sold, what's not uploaded yet. WHY? And I can't get anything to upload. Well done! You've meddled with something that was working well, JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT! I'd love to know how that meeting went, when you decided "Hey, lets change the colours, move stuff around... lets make our users learn EVERYTHING again!" You fucking bellends. Congratulations. I'm no longer a user. This program is going in the trash.

I can't say anything nice about it. Error messages appear yet the help section can't answer them. The interface is appalling. I wish iSale was still about. Just wasted a whole Sunday evening trying to list some products using this rubbish. Been a Mac user for 30 years and this has to be one of the least intuitive bits of software available.

do not like new version at all, completely unintuitive, the developer seems to follow Apple action of changing things for the sake of changing and alienating the many customers who are used to the software. I can not see any benefits of the new design rather the opposite can't find simple functions anymore

Perhaps it's because I never used version 6, but as a new user I got up to speed with version 7 pretty quickly and find it easy to get along with. For me it's been well worth the money and I'm impressed by how responsive the developers are. They have an excellent support forum and release updates on a regular basis. GarageSale isn't perfect but I'd give it a solid 4 out of 5 star rating.
