Design Store

Get great new listing designs for small money: The GarageSale Design Store offers a (still growing) variety of high-quality listing designs. They work perfectly with your GarageSale application and come with several great layout choices.

See what you get: All offered designs include several different layouts to choose from. Each layout can be previewed in GarageSale's built-in web browser before purchasing a design.

Payment without hassle: Add your favored designs to the cart and purchase them easily and securely with your credit card - right from within the GarageSale application. Just click the Checkout button to start the payment process. Once purchased, the designs will be automatically downloaded and installed by the application and can be used immediately in new auctions. Purchased designs will automatically appear in GarageSale's design selection (Template Menu, CoverFlow view, context menu etc.)

• A credit card and a licensed version of GarageSale are required for purchase.

• Made exclusively for GarageSale. You can use the designs in GarageSale only.

• What happens if I update my GarageSale version?: No problem - of course the update won't touch your purchased designs.

• How do I transfer my paid designs to my other Mac?: Just transfer the whole GarageSale folder (located in ~Library/Application Support/GarageSale) to your new Mac.

You have lost your purchased design?: No problem. Open the Design Template Manager (Window menu) and enter the transaction ID to redownload the design.

• What happens with the free, built-in listing designs?: The design store doesn't impact any of the default designs. And of course we'll continue to add free designs to GarageSale from time to time.
