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.

I discovered this and tried it today on some watched items with higher count numbers and made a sale on an item at a 5% discount so this feature worked for me. I chose items with the highest count. The feature would work nicer if I could change the sort order by clicking the menu to sort by “watchers” similar to this menu where I can click the little up or down arrow.

I wanted to do 5% but 6% was the lowest the down arrow allowed but I did override that value by changing it manually to 5%. Also it is tedious to scroll through only 3 lines at a time… perhaps improved with a side bar or allowing the panel to be made larger? Selecting 1 item at a time would be time consuming if I were to run a discount on 50 items which I did and had to go through the list one at a time.
I’m not sure why GS does this:

but “orders” and “properties” can only be seen by widening the screen panel a hair on both sides and then they come back. Also happens to " advanced" and “properties” menu.

Fixed. This seems to be working great!

Well done.
