Still Stuck Wtih Wrong Named Store

I’m trying to do the change on that lik, but it keeps giving me an error message that doesn’t apply.

I’ll try again shortly and get back to you.

@ilja ! It worked! Thank you so much!

It wouldn’t let me change the name last night, and I finally got fed up and went to bed. But I tried again today after realizing that at least part of eBay acknowledged the new name I wanted to switch to, so I tried a brand new name, and it took!

One small glitch, but I’m hoping that it takes care of itself: The link it gave me goes to somewhere they don’t acknowledge.

Any idea what actually happened to cause the problem?

Is that the store link that GarageSale receives for you new renamed store?

Can you please give this updated version another try?:

In the GarageSale preferences > Accounts please click on “Update Account Details” once again.

Sorry for my delay.

Yes, that’s it,

Done. And done.

Is that to fix the URL problem, or something else?

Yes, it should.
If not, could you let us know the URL GarageSale is inserting in your listings now?

Regards, Kristian

Sorry for the delay. Cousin’s wife is dying and I’ve been sitting with them.

In answer to the question, when I click on the store name at the top of my (GS) listing it takes me to the URL it’s supposed to be, which is

But I don’t think it’s a GarageSale problem. It looks like an eBay problem, and it started happening after you had eBay fix the original problem.

I’m not sure what to do about it. Do I need to talk to eBay, or will you consider it part of the original problem and deal with them?


Hi Michelle,

If you have the time by chance, could you post a link to one of your store listings you started with GarageSale 7.0.16b3?:

If you don’t want to post the link here feel free to send it to the GarageSale support.

Regards, Kristian

I installed the new version 7.0.16 about 20 minutes ago. No help. :frowning:

Here is the link:

I never thought to check out the other shop until this morning, so I did that. I know it was working 2 or 3 years ago, and can’t tell you when it stopped working. :frowning:

Ok. I don’t know if you need this piece of info, but I just found it, and I believe it will solve the problem.

The correct address to the second one is

Could it just be that GS has just created a similar address with pages.ebay instead of ?

Hi Michelle,

I just check out this listing:

The links to your store front and the store categories seem to be fine, e.g. this is the working link to your store:

Thank you, @kristian.

Could you indulge me just one more time, please?


If you click on “Collectibles Shoppe” at the top of the listing, does it take you to my store? It does not take me there.

Thank you so much for your patience.

Hi Michelle,

I tried the link in your listing but the link is still not working.
However, it seems you started that listing with 7.0.16b1. If you revise it with GarageSale 7.0.16b3 it might correct the link(s).

Before invoking the revise command with 7.0.16b3 please click on “Update Account Details” in the GarageSale preferences > Accounts.

Hope this helps,

Bingo! Thank you.

I’ll let you all rest for a while now. :slight_smile:
