Starting Listings

Once you are ready to start your listing on eBay, choose the ‘Start Listing’ command from the Main Window’s toolbar or the ‘Listing’ menu. If you have authorized more than a single eBay account in GarageSale, an additional menu will appear, asking you to select the desired account.

You can select multiple listings and start them simultaneously by holding down the shift key while clicking on additional listings.

Once GarageSale’s Launch Control window has appeared, your listings will be verified using the selected eBay account. If GarageSale or eBay cannot find any errors, the estimated listing fees (as calculated by eBay) will show at the top of the ‘Launch Control’ window.

This window offers several options:

If any of these options are enabled, their corresponding status icons will appear highlighted (colored) at the bottom of the Launch Control window.

Dealing with Errors and Warnings

When starting or verifying a listing, errors or warnings may be returned from different sources. Here is how to deal with them:

By right-clicking on an error message you’ll find options to copy the error description, ignore warnings (yellow error sign) and also show the specific listing in GarageSale. If you list several items at once you might find the two display options helpful: Let’s say you’re trying to start 100 listings at once and there’s only one listing with errors, these options allow you to quickly find the one that has errors.
