Lets face it — we all have lots of junk laying around in our garages. Most of us don't know what to do with it, so we throw it out. Well, just throw out that mindset and say hello to GarageSale 4, from iwascoding. This app lets you trade your junk for money by helping you create auctions on eBay that potential buyers will find attractive.
As many of us know, the online process for making eBay auctions is horrid! It takes hours to complete, and you end up with an okay-looking eBay auction. However, if you decide to use GarageSale, the auction has an amazing theme, many more options and looks much more reputable. It also speeds up the process so it only takes a few minutes to go from in your garage to up on the internet. GarageSale 4 includes many new features including a Cover Flow theme chooser, free image hosting and many more options for customization of your eBay auctions to make them as eye-catching as possible.
With GarageSale 4, picking a theme to use for your auction has become a snap. The interface of the application itself has been completely redesigned for a better user experience and ease of use. You just choose a style from the top of the pane, then choose a theme from the Cover Flow list, and then the app shows you a preview of what your auction will look like. You can also choose the style of that theme below the theme chooser. This style will be the way that the theme is displayed.
Editing the text of your auction has also become even easier; you can do it straight in preview mode or in editor mode. If you edit the text in editor mode, you can add HTML code to your text. Adding images is also a snap — just drag one into a drop zone in preview mode or drop one onto the dark grey bar in editor mode. You can also import items from Delicious Library to make it easier to write up your description and title.
Once you have added all the text and images you want, you can change options for your auction using the inspector. The inspector offers the same options as offered in the online auction creator. Some of them are useful, whereas some of them, such as bordered (especially in GarageSale), can just be a waste of money.
The preferences in GarageSale 4 also play a major role in your auctions. You can choose to use GarageSale's Free Picture Service in the Image Server tab. To set up an account for use with GarageSale, you must configure it in the Accounts tab. For the PayPal account that you use with your eBay, you must go through the process of getting an API username and password, which can take a few minutes.
One of the extremely nice features of GarageSale 4 is the ability to send and receive messages from eBay and eBay users from the application itself. In the misc tab of the sidebar, you can go to eBay Messages for
Once you are done customizing your auction, you can just hit the Start Auction toolbar button, and it tells you how much it will cost. GarageSale 4 offers many new and wonderful features that make it a great and easy-to-use app. If you have a garage filled with junk, give GarageSale a try and see what happens. You know what they say, one man's garbage is another man's treasure.
