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

You have a glitch somewhere. The preview mode is completely blank. Editor and live ok


is the preview blank when any listing is selected? Or just some of them? Can you export the template and send it to me?


It is when the listing is selected. ALL of them. I exported to my desk top but it won’t paste to this screen
I went back to 9.0b1 and it is fine

I downloaded a fresh copy of 9.0b2 but still the problem persists. I looked through all the settings and don’t see a problem. 9.0b1 is fine

Can you export one of your listing and send it to GarageSale support?

In your listing do you use any custom code, text snippets, or your own listing design?

Regards, Kristian

No custom code, text snippets or my own listing design. Just GS PRO listings from the list.
I sent an export to the GS support
I tried other designs from the list and still blank. Went back to 9.0b1 and the new listing shows fine

Thank you. Maybe it has to do with the new string for shipping, we’ll see.

Just a short “Thank you” for going on with the development of GS!!!


Maybe that’s a bug specific to a certain version of macOS. What version of macOS are you running?

The Mac version 10.15.7. You cant reproduce it?

Not yet, but I don’t think we have test the last beta on 10.15, because it only contained minor changes. Seems one of those changes cause GarageSale to trip on that version of macOS.

Is mac 12 stable on your machines? I hate to update when everything is working smooth

We could reproduce the issue thanks to the listing you sent in. It has nothing to do with the macOS version.

Turned out, the specific shipping setup in your listing run into a newly introduced bug when rendering the preview we didn’t catch, because we were using different a shipping setup during testing.

It’s now fixed in beta 3.
