At some time or another, we’ve all used eBay to sell something. From a small ornament to a MacBook Pro, it’s far and away the most popular service to sell items online. But when you’re using eBay on a regular basis, you’ll often feel that the website can be quite limiting when it comes to regularly listing items and any flare you’d like to include in your listing requires an in-depth knowledge of HTML and CSS.

GarageSale is a complete eBay selling tool that includes some powerful features and a wide range of design templates. Should you buy it now or is it not worth the reserve price?

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!


eBay has become completely ubiquitous with buying and selling goods online, but their website often doesn’t provide the best user experience. For ‘power users’ of eBay, there are a number of apps available for OSX which can help you to get the most from the auction site and save a huge amount of time. Even for casual users, certain tools can make searching, saving results and tracking auctions far easier.

This roundup will focus on 8 different applications which have the potential to make you a much more effective eBay user. Whether it’s through creating great looking auctions, or ensuring you have the best chance of winning in a bidding contest – you’ll see eBay in a completely fresh light.
