This one's for HansDerHund and the others who use Garagesale. I think Hans was asking what to do with those auction templates that pile up. Here's what I did.
I did some listings today and spent some time organizing. Under My Templates I have a bunch of folders, one for each category I sell. One for Shoes, one for Suits, one for Sweaters, etc. I have a single template in each one. Just a representative listing.
Then I have two more folders. One for Current Auctions and One for Relisting.
So today I worked on current listings. I made a duplicate of a representative template - say one for Shoes. I dragged it into Current Auctions and customized for what I was listing. If I listed a second pair I just made a copy of the copy and used that. I suppose if you always listed Hermes ties (Spoo?) you could get more focused and have a Hermes tie template - less to change in that case.
I'll list these Sunday. Once the auctions close or resolve I'll delete Sold items and move relists into the Relist folder. That way I can keep the Current Auctions folder free for items I'm geting ready to list for the first time.
If you are relisting, I would directly relist from eBay because you get eBay relist credits when you relist the same item for the second time. . Relisting from GS, eBay will charge you for the relist. This really doesn't matter if you are only using the monthly 50 free listings.
