Editors' review

GaragePay for Mac serves as an alternative manager for your PayPal account. The app comes at a price, but it does have a demo mode, where most of the transaction information is hidden. In terms of functionality, the software supports exporting your transaction history to a CSV file as well as using smart folders to show only what you are looking for.

GaragePay for Mac greets you with a pleasant interface that follows OS X's design aesthetic. You can quickly update the transaction log, send and refund money, add e-mails to your AddressBook, as well as export information to a CSV file. Two nice touches are the fullscreen mode and the smart folders, which allow you to instantly filter and easily find the payments you need. In order to use the service, however, you need PayPal API credentials, which usually require a Premier or Business account. During testing we found the log-in process rather unintuitive; we had to create a blank account and then fill in the credentials rather than the other way around.

If you're a small business owner and take a lot of payments through PayPal, GaragePay for Mac may offer you a better way to review your transactions thanks to the smart folder feature, which you can use to display filtered content. The biggest obstacle to using the app is the need for a PayPal Premier or Business account. This limits its usage to business owners or merchants.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of GaragePay for Mac 1.7.2.

    "GaragePay is great!"

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I run an online business, panfluteshop.com, we use PayPal for our shop. Now with GaragePay it has really streamlined my process. So much faster than having to log in for each sale. I can export to my Filemaker database with a click. Keeps my records constantly up to date.

    If you are doing business and using PayPal get this program. $25 is well worth the value it has brought to us.

    So far I have not had any problems. I have all my records for instant search going back almost 10 years. That is thousands of transactions at my fingertips.

    "somewhat helpfull but 24.95 is a joke"

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This software is somewhat helpful if you to lazy to log in to PayPal and for $10 it might be worth while but $25 for something you can as easy achieve by logging in to PayPal is a bit of a joke.


    You unfortunately also can't really use it to reconcile the paypal account as it takes not in to account the statements.

    $10 yes $25 no way
