These days, you’d be hard-pressed to find any business, freelancer or consumer who doesn’t have a PayPal account, and for good reason – it’s quick, easy, and universally used. Considering its success, however, the PayPal website is still awkward to use –

If you leave it for more than a second, it would seem, it logs itself out, and you have to waste time logging back in again. Once you’re in, it’s not all that intuitive, and you have to navigate countless dropdown menus to do anything. In short, the PayPal site is a pain.

GaragePay can take away all of that pain. It’s a PayPal client for Mac, meaning you never have to use that pesky site ever again, and instead can handle all of your transactions from the comfort of a native app.

Competition Now Closed

It’s competition time again, and today we’re giving you the chance to win a copy of either GarageSale for Mac or GaragePay. Both of these excellent applications can help make eBay and PayPal easier to use, bringing the experience to the comfort of your Mac desktop.

We have five licenses for each to give away, and will be picking ten winners. Entering just requires you to leave a comment on this post, letting us know something interesting that you’ve bought or sold on eBay. It could be anything – from an iPod, to an old pair of socks!

We’ll be picking the ten winners at random in one week, on Thursday Feb 3rd. Best of luck, and be sure to give both of these applications a try if you’re a regular PayPal or eBay user!

It’s time for another “Meet the Developers” interview today, and I’m excited to let you know that we’ll be talking to Ruotger Skupin of iwascoding. If you’ve ever thought about using a Mac or iOS application for eBay, you’ll have undoubtedly come across their flagship piece of software – GarageSale.

Today we’ll be talking about the iwascoding team, a typical day working as a developer, why the company decided to focus on building software around eBay and PayPal, and offering plenty of tips for any readers thinking about developing an application.

I hope you enjoy the interview!
