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.
