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.

There is a new glitch that causes instant crash when GS9.0b3 tries to restart new listings. I went back to 9.0b1 after 3 crashes and GS9.0b1 is currently restarting new listings

Did you send the crash logs when you were asked for? Can you send us your Crash-ID? You can find it in the About Panel of GarageSale.

Now that you ask that screen didn’t show. I guess that info is lost? Crash ID 03044c6f40ca5ebca67dc87af2e8aa49

Thanks, we already found your crash report and working on a solution/fix. Thanks!

An annoying behavior started with GS 9. When doing a search and the item is found and I click on it to work on that listing… GS only gets close to it. Usually a half a page down or up and I have to scroll around until I find it. It is grey in the highlighted line when, If I remember previous GS programs, it was my preference color of red. This example below was searched for and was 50 lines down

Sorry for that. Unfortunately eBay has crippled its Sandbox system intended so much, that it is impossible to test some features in a meaningful way. There is no way to turn off that “keep listings running with zero quantity” settings. A listing needs to be stopped for our auto-relist feature to kick in, so the eBay sandbox is completely useless at the moment.

Anyway, this issue should be fixed with beta 4.

I tired to replicate this, but couldn’t. Could you please record a short screen video showing the issue. (Press command-shift-5 or choose “New Screen Recording” in the QuickTime Player. Thanks.

I sent to File wouldn’t attach here
GS used to jump to the exact line and highlighted

Might have to do with the new font size change for the list???


I love the font size change

finally got it clipped small enough

This behavior is also occurring and showed up at the same time. When making changes or deleting from the listings list GS jumps away from where you are editing. It jumps down about 1 screen making me scroll around to find where I was working. Running IOS 10.15.7

So far I had no luck in reproducing this behavior. Does that happen for all listings, or only some?

Also, what version of macOS are you running?

IOS 10.15.7. I am hesitant to update because my computer is running flawlessly and my computer is a late 2015 so its likely not going to like Monterey. The behavior started when 9.0 came out. It jumps on 99% of the listings I work with. It just did 5 out of 5 tested. It’s not the end of the world just an annoying behavior while using GS

Please check GS 9.0 beta 5, which should address the scrolling issue if you find some time.

In GS 9.0 beta 5 the search jump is fixed 100% but the delete jump is still a full page up to find the line I was working on
