    "OMGshops says OMG!! Love this program!!!"

    December 3, 2008  |   By OMGshops

    Version: GarageSale 5.1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    What a great program. The key thing is the program is simply incredible and saves money on every auction. Basically its freeware because you save so much in such a little time. Your auctions look professional and you can even make your own templates so it has versatility. I could write so much about how good this has worked for me. The biggest thing for me is the speed I can list auctions. listed 26 separate auctions in a little over 2 hours. I could never do that at ebay and I saved over 50 cents to a dollar per auction. Its freeware now because I have listed almost 70 auctions now and the money saved would buy the program 2 times over.

    Get Garage Sale. If you have problems they will help you. Its such a huge deal for my store. Love it!!!!

    "praise long overdue"

    October 5, 2008  |   By joemit1

    Version: GarageSale 5.0.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I bought my first computer in 1983 and rarely since that time have I purchased software that provided so much value for the price. Garage sale works flawlessly. If there is a problem, the online support has been impeccable. I have consistently received a reply to any question in the two years I've been using the program within 24 hours. Often the reply comes within a few hours and has always remedied my problem (usually an I-D 10 T error). Anyone who lists a lot of auctions will find that they reccover the cost of the program in just a few days as the image hosting service significantly decreases the cost of listings. The many templates offered really dress up your listings too. I'm usually a cynic when it comes to software and few programs get my full approval but this is one of the few. Don't miss out on this program!

    "Still the Best and Becoming Better"

    February 24, 2008  |   By MAC_1984

    Version: GarageSale 4.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am thankful for the latest version albeit it got off to a rocky start it is proving to be better than the last version with more to choose from, and a better layout for me. The upgrade cost is minor, and I fail to see what people are complaining about, but it has become fashionable to complain about upgrade prices in the Mac community as it seems more Mac users are heading to the "freebie" category. That's fine, but those products typically provide less value.

    Regarding Auctiva, which eBay pushes, it's okay but you get boring results, and I am not interested in anything that eBay pushes as eBay is as incessant at pushing their rubbish (e.g., when using PayPal you have to jump through hoops to switch to another funding source versus PayPal directly removing funds from your bank account, and PayPal provides no preference to cease the hoop jumping). What really needs to happen is a good source of choice with Goggle finally taking on eBay in a major way as eBay itself is becoming less and less attractive.

    "Not ready for prime time"

    February 3, 2008  |   By peterpayne

    Version: GarageSale 4.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am waiting for a reply from the company. They have made one SERIOUS error in GS4 -- I can no longer search my own auctions for my own product codes, which effectively means I cannot use the program that I paid for. In the past (excellent) version, I could open it, search for "PHS610" (my own product code) and find the auction to relist immediately. This fundamental, basic functionality is broken in GS4. Sadly, while this is a fantastic app, the company is just not good about replying to customer concerns or making changes that we need/ Thus, I cannot recommend this version at all.

    "GarageSale 4 crashes constantly and there is no..."

    January 22, 2008  |   By robdixson

    Version: GarageSale 4.0

    Summary

    ...support from the company
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I upgraded to version 4 from 3 and the program constantly crashes. I did a complete uninstall - reinstall thinking something might have been corrupt it still crashed every time I launch. I sent emails to the company and have not heard back. The photos in the listing don't appear correctly and it takes forever to get your stuff listed. I guess I should have gone with iSale.

    "Still slow at cacheing"

    January 21, 2008  |   By depeche

    Version: GarageSale 4.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Been using this for about a year and still find the cacheing between different layouts very slow. Can this please be improved? I also have a suggestion - please add a visit counter to the widget. I like to keep an eye on the activity of my auctions and for this I have to log in via a browser every time I want to check. If the widget had a counter on it, it would be a lot easier! Otherwise, I LOVE this software.

    "Awful"

    January 17, 2008  |   By epc

    Version: GarageSale 4.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I liked version 3, so when version 4 came out I paid for the upgrade. Big mistake.
    Some features don't work properly, others require additional clicks of the mouse (or steps) for the data to be entered properly, and support is non-existent plus their Help wiki seems to be outdated.
    When contacting support, there's no email confirmation or incident number.

    About half the auctions I wanted to upload to eBay did not get uploaded. Now instead of paying $0.20 I have to pay between $5 and $6 per auction thanks to GarageSale's inefficiency. Additionally, there were no messages to tell me about this failure to start my scheduled auctions.

    I definitely regret "upgrading" to version 4. For me version 3 had been a 5-star application. This one is just awful.

    "Also purchased 3 months ago."

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm pretty disappointed that since I purchased this back on Sept. 18th, 2007 that it isn't covered under the upgrade special. 3.41 was the last version that I had and now all of a sudden it's on version 4? Come on guys, I know MacWorld is coming up but can you cut us a break?

    "Charging for a Beta product"

    January 9, 2008  |   By t2lek

    Version: GarageSale 4.0b6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've used this for a while and it's interesting to see that the version numbers have gone from 3.4.1 straight to 4.0.b5 overnight. It sounds like they are trying to cash in and make users pay for a version increase which is in fact still beta (why not implement the upgrade fee when it's out of beta???).

    I can't really see much extra functionality that i'd use for the money between 3.4 & 4.0 so for the time being i'll be sticking with the older version which works just fine.

    I'm all for paying for upgrade's within reason, but give me something substantial for my money else i'm going to start looking elsewhere.
