    They Are Moving to Monthly Fee - Incompetent Developers

    Could anything have beeI was a long term users of GS and seller on eBay since 1999. I stop listing items on eBay for just over a year due to disputes with eBay over its illegal billings practices. I decided to try the site once again only to discover that version 6 of GS no longer listed items. I upgraded to version 7 at a cost of $19.95.

    I found a major flaw with the program within a few minutes of using it. Many categories on eBay now require a minimum number of attributes. If you list an item within one of these categories and verify your listing you will receive an error message that your item is missing attributes.

    To fix this you must click the "Attributes" field under the listing's Options tab. When you do this you are presented with a long list of eBay's suggested attributes. In most cases only one or two are required by eBay so you can dismiss the reset by clicking a small minus symbol (-) by each one and leaving the remaining attributes at their default values.

    Having to constantly dismiss these unwanted attributes was going to be wasting many hours of my time so I brought this to the attention of the GS development team. It was obvious to me that GS7 knew the difference between those attributes which were required and those which were not required so why not add a preference to GS7 to not to show the non required attributes. This would save having to constantly dismiss the unwanted attributes with each new listing.

    I was then asked by the development team to join the beta testing for version 8. It was also at this time the development team disclosed to me their new pricing model for version 8. Users will only be permitted to list 50 free listings per month. If you list more than that you need to buy a subscription for $14.99 a month. I find it utterly dishonest of the company to not disclose this fact on their site and continue selling version 7. This information is only discussed in their special version 8 forum which only accessible by invitation. The development team claims they need to charge a monthly fee due to the lack of sales with previous versions.

    Upon using version 8 beta what did I find? I found they had implemented my suggestion under Preferences eBay Advanced Attributes Panel. One can now choose: Insert suggested attributes; Insert required attributes; or Leave blank.

    I complained within their special beta 8 forum which can't be seen by the general public. I complained about the team not fixing this obvious major flaw in the two years version 7 has been out. I complained about the new pricing model. I complained that the company choose to call this major bug fix a new feature in GS8 instead of fixing GS7.

    I received a reply from another user within the forum stating that I was mistaken because I had not taken enough time to evaluate the product. That can't be true because they added my suggestion to GS8 within days.

    The other poster said there was nothing wrong with version 7 and its great. That can't be true because the company claims they must now charge a subscription fee because their upgrades and new purchases no longer make them enough money.

    I was told I was using the program wrong as the other poster had never encountered this problem with attributes. If this other poster was listing on the U.S. site then that can't be true and is a lie. If the other poster was listing on a eBay site in another country that does not require attributes then the other poster is not qualified to issue an opinion on the matter.

    I was told there is nothing wrong with the new pricing model as it works great for the other poster's store. I like my long term business model much better as its far cheaper and far more efficient. Construct items within GS and list the standard 50 items per month without insertion fees. Wait to list the rest during one of eBay's free insertion days. I pay no insertion fees and no store fees.

    Good but could be better

    What were the positives?

    It allows you to list on eBay directly from your computer which is convenient. It also lets you create templates.

    Any negatives?

    The application is sluggish and you will spend about every 3 minutes waiting 15 to 20 seconds for it to "think" (I guess saving your work) while watching a spinning wheel. Doesn't sound like a lot of time but it gets annoying. Also, GarageSale has a bad problem with losing listings. They will still be on ebay but they are no longer on Garagesale. That's not a problem if you have under a hundred listings but when you have hundreds or thousands you don't notice them missing and then when it runs out on eBay it just disappears and you have an item that is no longer for sale but you don't know it. The word processor used in creating the listings is difficult to work with and it's not intuitive. If you are used to working with MS Word prepare to be irritated. It will get it done but it ain't fun. Lastly, Garagesale claims to generate reports. However, it is functionally useless because of design flaws. I guess this is something that could be fixed but they haven't done so in the four years I've been using it.

    Overall

    They will answer support queries but their answer may not include a solution to the problem.

    A NEW MAC CONVERT SINGS THE PRAISES OF GARAGE SALE

    I'VE BEEN AN EBAY POWER SELLER FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS. I RECENTLY SWITCHED FROM MY PC TO A MAC AND NEEDED NEW AUCTION LISTING SOFTWARE. I FEEL LIKE I'VE COME INTO THE 21ST CENTURY...FINALLY! I USED TO USE SPOONFEEDER BUT HATED THAT YOU HAD TO CREATE THE LISTING IN ONE PLACE AND COULDN'T SEE WHAT IT WAS ALL LOOKING LIKE WITHOUT HAVING TO CLICK AND WAIT. GARAGE SALE IS SMOOTH, EASY TO USE, MAKES MY AUCTIONS LOOK VERY UPSCALE AND WELL PUT TOGETHER. WHILE YOUR BUILDING THE LISTING YOU SEE WHAT IT WILL ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE AS AN AUCTION...EVERY STEP. VERY WELL PUT TOGETHER, LOTS OF OPTIONS, VERY COOL.

    I GUESS YOU CAN TELL I LIKE IT! YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A DEMO FOR FREE SO GIVE IT A WHIRL. I'M VERY IMPRESSED WITH IT AND IT TAKES A LOT TO IMPRESS ME.

    After getting ripped off with iSale, I tried this and it is much, much better.

    As an Ebay seller, time is money and selling programs need to address that aspect. Garage Sale is on the way to doing that. It manages to do a few things well and its only weakness, giving it four rather than five stars, is that there is more to be done, such as keeping the initial input for the sale so that buyers don't send payments for less than the postage and handling charged or billed. There are work arounds, but they take TIME. Let's have some auditing and record keeping so that we can run some reports. Heading in that direction, you'll see The Small Businessman start to purr!

    First Impressions

    My first impressions were reflected in my previous posting, which I am updating with my more recent observations. I am in the demo phase and at first it was very intimidating trying to use and understand the tool bar and many of the options. As I gain experience my opinion is changing for the better. I gave it the five stars because as I become more familiar with editing the power is becoming more evident. I have some issues but they will probably disappear as I use it more.

    Nice, easy to use desktop auction management software for Mac users

    I saw these guys at eBay live 2005.

    Ilja and Paul demonstrated the software for me. It was very easy to use, keenly priced, and quite robust!

    There is no recurring fee just a one time charge to purchase the software. A great alteranative to the eBay SYI forms, since those are not very Mac friendly.

    Good luck guys!
