Inventory import format for GS 7

What is the format for the CSV file in 7 and can it handle barcode and MPN?

The following fields are imported from CSV files into inventory items:

  • title
  • sku
  • price
  • quantity
  • cost
  • barcode
  • description

From your question it sounds like you want inventory items to holds an MPN, too. Correct?

I have tried this an only seems to work with Numbers, not Excel exporting to CSV.

Also, will not load any more than approx 10 items at a time as the system stops…

Nice if the following where added:

  • brand
  • MPN

These could be used in the attributes section of the auction listing,

Could you send me the CVS file where the import stops after 10 items?

I have successfully imported over 700 items in Beta 20. It took a while but worked well. Many Thanks.

i have having issues importing products again, has anything changed in the above format?

Hi Ray,

are you referring to listings or to inventory items?
How exactly are you trying to import them and what beta version do you have installed? (the latest one is beta 37)

Regards, Kristian

I am using Beta 37 and importing Inventory.
Here is my format…

1.75mm Spool of 1KG Orange Delight,PF-ABS1KG-ORANGE,40,4,38.55,0,1.75mm Spool of 1KG Orange Delight

Hi Ray,

could you zip and post your CSV file here or send it to me or Ilja off-list so we can have a closer look at it?
Also, how exactly are you trying to import the file?

Regards, Kristian

Ahh, I used the import in the task bar instead of the file menu one and it worked…

Task Bar ???

I cannot import any running auctions started with GS 6.


I think Ray was taking about the toolbar. This problem has been fixed in the meantime.

How were you trying to import these auctions? With the “Import from My eBay” command?

Yes" Import From My Ebay"

Window pops up but does not populate.


Do you have accounts listed under Preferences > Accounts ?

Do you have running listings on eBay for any of the accounts listed there?

Is there something logged from GarageSale to the Console application (under /Applications/Utilities/Console) when you you open the “Import from My eBay” panel?

Sorry for the delay in replying as I was out of town.

Yes all 3 of my accounts are enabled and working.

The other major issue I am having with 7 is the inability to have the
Listings update properly. They only change color if I choose the Listing
manually and hit the Reload Button. Since all of my listings are unique
1-offs I need the program to update all listings automatically so they can
be removed from the active pile.

Cannot commit to using GS7 until this starts working as it has in 6.


Hi Horace_Greeley,

it’s worth a try to refresh your eBay token. Your current one is from 2014 as I can see in the screenshot.

Regards, Kristian

Absolutely funny thing happened on the way to the theater…

I cannot actually update the token as the internal app will not parse my correct password and user ID. Tried 2 accounts.
I can sign in on Firefox no problem but not using GS.


Do you get an error message or what exactly happens?
Can you sign in with Safari?

However, maybe it helps to remove the accounts in the GarageSale preferences>Accounts and re-add them afterwards.

Regards, Kristian

I get the “Incorrect Username/Password Error” and cannot advance


you’re in SANDBOX mode!?
Does your GarageSale have a “Debug” menu?
