Non-Secure HTTP flag by eBay

In my listing eBay flagged this as non-secure. When I opened the source code in Safari and did a search, there is a http in a metadata tag of an image. (Line 31). Is this what’s causing the problem?
I ran the link repair in GS but it returned no changes.

Thanks, Steve

Hi Steve,

the three images in your listings are missing. They are too old and no longer available on the GarageSale server. You need to re-upload the images. Revising the listing from within GarageSale should do the trick (unless it’s a listing imported from eBay!).

If it’s a listing imported from eBay, you’d need to remove the img tags from the HTML in Editor mode. The URLs can’t be simply changed to “https” because the images don’t exist on the server.

Hi there guys.

I have the same issue as Steve_Elliot had, except its for 479 listings lol. Is there a way of getting these listings into a group so I only have to edit the actual listings, instead of having to trawl through garage sale, looking for the right listings to edit. I have nearly 3000 listings and this will be a major pain inn the backside lol.

Any help will be greatly received. Thanks in advance,


Hi Will,

creating a smart group with the rule:
Item Description > contains > http:
might work for you.

If not, can you post a link to one of the listings in question so we can have a closer lok at it?

Regards, Kristian

Thanks for the quick reply Kristian, much appreciated :slight_smile:

Still trying to figure out the smart groups process, I can create the smart group, but it never has anything in it lol…

So here’s some links to some of our listings affected by this:

Hope this helps :smile:

Hi Will,

I had a look at the Swamp Thing listing on eBay.

This listing was started with an older versoin of GarageSale 7, version 7.0.7.
It uses an old version of the design and footer and the “unsecure” http protocol for the image.

Did you already update to GarageSale 7.0.9 or better 7.0.10 and followed the steps listed here?:

Regards, Kristian

Thanks Kristian.
Typically, how long are images held on your server?

For 60 days but please see all details here:

Regards, Kristian

Thanks for the help Kris, but we did this when it was needed the other month, but clearly looks like some fell through the gaps lol, what would you suggest doing to fix this?

Thanks again my friend.


Doe this mean, without the picture add-on, every 60 days we will get this HTTP flag?

No, the image URLs have nothing to do with the GTC image option, if that is your concern. Don’t mix it up, please.

  1. Is this a listing "imported from eBay!?

  2. Did you actually revise the listing from within GarageSale 7.0.9 or 7.0.10 by invoking the revise command and selecting “Revise entire listing”?

No problemos!! thank you though for clearing that up bud

  1. Nope, all our listings are done within garage sale.

  2. We revised it from within 7.0.10 using the instructions that were posted on your page…so, yes lol

Could you export one of the listings in question using GarageSale’s export function (File menu > Export Listings) and post it here or send it to the GarageSale support so we can have a closer look at it?

Regards, Kristian

Thank you ever so much

I imported your listing here in GarageSale 7:

It is an ended listing. (at least that’s the staus displayed here) An ended listing can’t be revised.
It’s not a listing “imported from eBay”.
It does not contain “forbidden” code or content.

The ended listing that you can see in “Live” mode was started with an earlier version of GarageSale and contains non-compliant content as I wrote earlier.
If you revise a listing from within GarageSale 7.0.9 or higher or start a new listing, it shouldn’t contain non-compliant content as long as you restore the default footer.

Ah, that’s my bad, I’ll send an active one in the morning when I’m back at work. Thank you for all your help and I apologise for being a bit moronic lolol
