      "Garage Sale USED to be great, now it is unusable."

      July 25, 2013   |   By crabitha

      Version: GarageSale 6.6.5

      Pros

      GarageSale has nice templates.

      Cons

      eBay recently made it a requirement that all photos have to be at least 500 pixels. Sounds easy, right? But eBay also made it a requirement that users must upload at least one of those 500 pixel photos using the eBay photo service. Sounds easy, right? WRONG. Because if you upload your photos using the eBay picture services as required, Garage Sale automatically reduces the size of all the photos you import into thumbnail size photos. That means that you can no longer use Garage Sale to upload auctions to eBay. I paid something like $75 for this program and it no longer works. When I contacted the creators of the program, I was told the fix was on their "to do" list. Hello!? The program doesn't work!

      Summary

      Garage Sale used to be a decent program. It was always a bit clunky but the templates you could produce were quite nice and had a decent range of options. The program is clunky to edit. After building a number of templates, you naturally want to delete some of them because the program is so big and takes so much memory but you have to delete them one at a time. It is a very slow and tedious process. Having said that, I was willing to put up with that, well, after all, there is no other decent ebay auction listing software.
      But now, the program is unusable and the creators, "iwascoding" apparently don't see any need to try to fix the problem that makes it impossible to use. All I can do is shake my head. Iwascoding has been aware of the problem for a month and have the fix on their "to do" list. Since the fix is the only thing that will make the program viable, I would think Iwascoding would be working through the night to fix the problem that has made their program completely unusable for eBay sellers.

      Honestly, I wish someone would create a really good ebay auction listing software because at this point in time, none exists.

      If you are thinking of purchasing this program to use on your Mac to list auctions on eBay, don't waste your money until you know it is usable. If Iwascoding does ever decide to get around to making their program usable again, I will come back and amend this review.

      "I was deceived by my initial reaction..."

      July 22, 2013   |   By blusapphire23

      Version: GarageSale 6.6.5

      Pros

      Gives a quicker option for listing bulk items, rather than using ebay's system.
      Good for a small amount of items, with few options.

      Cons

      Memory usage is off the charts.
      Constant freezing.
      Automatic restart feature doesn't work...ever.
      Limited template options.
      ebay fees are inaccurate.
      Tech support is incomprehensible.

      Summary

      I purchased this program with the intention of having it aid me with my ebay store. I have over 1000 listings to manage on a daily basis and a lot of money to keep track of. Garage Sale has lost me buckets of money due to it's inefficiency, freezing and poor tech support. I've had issues ranging from categories not loading to items disappearing from my list. The interface is extremely disorganized for a program that is supposed to improve on such a function. There are no real resources to figure everything out. Their website is, again, disorganized and confusing. Garage Sale attempts to emulate every feature of ebay's listing software, yet takes no initiative to make it coherent. I've contacted tech support on many an occasion for help with the many issues I've had and every single time, I've had to find and fix the problem myself. I would not recommend this program at all, and given the choice, I'd take my money back and go with Parallels and a Windows option.

      I do many things with many different softwares and have been a mac user for 20 years. I am fully aware of what an app like this, had it been properly designed, could and should be capable of. However, there's nobody else creating this type of software for the mac, so they have all the room they need to corner the ebay market of apple users. Sad but true.
