I must have some older listings and templates that still have private listing set on. I’d like to turn it off on those listings but I can’t now that the UI is removed. Is there any way to turn it off via applescript or something else?
For sure it’s still there. I sent you an example via email with the exported listing. Listing was started yesterday and near the bottom of the page still shows " This is a private listing and your identity will not be disclosed to anyone except the seller."
Thank you for that information. Yes, I did just start using the relist. Previously I had always copied the listing and used the start listing feature. I didn’t realize the mechanics were different. I’ll go back to the copy and start.
I’m afraid, using the the regular start command won’t help you with starting new private listings.
eBay removed the support for the private listing flag from the interface GarageSale uses, but it seems eBay is still offering that feature on their website.
I suspect by using the Relist command in GarageSale you found a loophole to start new private listings, because GarageSale only passes the ID of an existing listing to eBay in that case, and eBay copies all the attributes to the new listing in their database without GarageSale’s further involvement.
Seems you are caught in between a rock and a hard place, because department A and department B at eBay are not talking to each other.
