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 19.99 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

Opened the new Beta and there was the side bar with only one heading word. It was fine while I was just working with 9.0b14

I reopened 9.0b14 and all 3 are there. And then when I went back to b15 it was ok. Strange?

A separate observation. One place you call them attributes and the other place you(and Ebay) call them Item Specifics. Shouldn’t they both say “Item Specifics” since that is what Ebay calls them?

Upgraded to this latest b15 and now I get the message that it won’t load the paid designs that I have indeed paid for (in GS 7 I think). I have a current Pro subscription.

I guess you have purchased the design with GS8 and you had a regular license back then? And this regular GS8 license has a different name then the name on the Pro Subscription?

Please contact our support about this. We will change the name on the purchased design then.
