Pro Designs are advanced auction designs, specially designed for use with your eBay store listings. They allow you to add your store name, store categories and individual text boxes (e.g. for Shipping Info, Payment Info, Return Policy, …).


All this can easily be done in the Design Properties Inspector in GarageSale 6. Pro Designs let you create highly professional store listings. If you run an eBay store you'll love them. Good to know: Even without an eBay store you can use the Pro Designs!

Additional Pro Designs are available in GarageSale's Design Store.


As an example see this Pro Design called Pro: Sidebar Store:

The Pro Design Options are located in the Design Properties Inspector (scroll down a bit). They allow you to:

• Show/Hide and adjust your store name

• Show/Hide your store categories

• Add info boxes e.g. for your shipping info, payment info and so on.

You can enter individual titles and content for each of the boxes. (It might be helpful to type your text in a Text Edit file and paste it into the property field.)

If needed you can format the text using HTML tags. See the examples below:

• Adding line breaks: <br>

• Bold text: <b>your text</b>

Example: You enter this:

Enter your payment info here.<br><b>Enter your payment info here.</b>

This is the result:
