DealBITS Drawing: GarageSale

Send Article to a Friend

Back when we moved from Seattle to Ithaca, NY, we tried selling some items on eBay, and although it wasn't terribly difficult to set up an auction or two, it quickly became clear that working through eBay's Web-based interface required more effort than we were willing to expend on a regular basis. Now, however, there's no need to suffer through an awkward Web-based interface, and the next time I think of selling something on eBay, I plan to try GarageSale, from iwascoding.com. Put simply, GarageSale is a full Mac OS X application that acts as a front-end for people posting auctions on eBay. It integrates with iPhoto for pictures, offers real text-editing tools, lets you create and use templates for your auctions, and helps you track your auctions after the fact.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of GarageSale (the 5-machine Family Pack license), each worth $44.99. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on GarageSale (both the single-user and Family Pack license), so if you'd like a program to ease the process of posting an auction on eBay, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won.
