eBay store categories broken in pro templates

GarageSale 7.0.8 on MacOS 10.11.6 using Pro: Sidebar Design

store category links are all returning a
"Something went wrong. We’re sorry.“ page on eBay

here is a sample sidebar link generated by GarageSale:


a working link retrieved from within my eBay store is:


How can we resolve this? We have over 10,000 items on eBay and none of the sidebar links are working.

I found a closed thread in the forum which refers to the same problem:

at the end someone refers to having corrected the issue using GarageSale 8.
Is there a beta version of GS8?

Hi d.king,

the first thing you should try is to update to GarageSale 7.0.16. This might already fix the issue for you.

I updated to the latest GarageSale, re-authenticated my eBay access token and updated eBay categories.
It does not fix the issue. It returns a different broken link of the type:


@kristian we already discussed about it here Category links in Pro: design templates not working this is a bug as I already reported. If I revise a listing whose links work with the current version of GS7, links stop working

The bad links generated by the older version are preferable since they at least stay within eBay. The bad links generated by the latest update are non-https and lead to insecure browsing notifications outside of eBay
