Running GS 9 and switching back to GS 8

Since GarageSale 9 uses a different application identifier, you’ll need to grant it access to each eBay token in your Mac’s keychain. When the system displays such a permission panel, please click the ‘Always Allow’ button if available.

GarageSale 9 will copy all your data from GarageSale 7 or 8 into its own library folder. In case you are encountering problems you can always switch back to GS 7/8 and continue were you left off before switching to GS9.
You’d need to use the GarageSale’s import/export functions to bring back listings changed or created with GS9 into your earlier version of GarageSale.


GarageSale 9 uses a different data schema compared to previous versions. When GarageSale 9 connects to the sync server for the first time, your account is upgraded to this new schema version.
Afterwards, earlier version of GarageSale can longer connect to the sync server.

Licensing during Beta phase

For now, GarageSale 9 Beta will accept existing GarageSale 8 licenses.


The costs for upgrading from an earlier version of GarageSale to version 9 are USD/EUR 14.99 for the single user license. If you purchased your license for GarageSale 8 after August 1st, 2021, your upgrade will be free.

GarageSale Pro subscribers don’t need to pay any upgrade fees to use GS 9.

System Requirements

  • macOS 10.12 or later

I am loving the slightly larger type size in the sidebar! Its the first thing I noticed with the 9.0 upgrade. HOWEVER… the keychain access and refreshing the access token just wouldn’t work. GS wouldn’t accept my password after 3 tries so I denied it and then it went through to the access token… which asked for my ebay password and then just sat there for minutes spinning so I quit it and tried again to refresh and it wouldn’t go. So I tried again and it spun for minutes so I quit it and the access token was updated and GS9 started up. I started 2 listings and GS9 works fine(so far). Something is off in the access token though.

Also, I had to reset up keyboard shortcuts. I assume GS9 is looked at as a new program.

This note keeps popping up and it wont accept my GS password. I can however upload to ebay

There are 75 com.iwascoding.garagesale7 keys and 9 Garage sale keys


GarageSale is trying to retrieve a password/token from the macOS Keychain. This has nothing todo with your GarageSale Pro account/password.

The password for the Keychain is the same as our macOS/system account login password. You do not need the GarageSale Pro password for the Keychain.



never saw that many of these entries. Just had a look into my Keychain and there were indeed a few of them. It is safe to delete all of them. These are information that our crash reporter saves, and is supposed to delete them afterwards. It may have failed to do so.


I put in my computer password and hit always allow and it hasn’t come back for 12 hours. I got rid of most of those keys but kept the 4 new ones and the GS pro account password
