Using the worlds most advanced garage sale app is surprisingly simple. Everything seems to work the way it should and there’s either an easy button or it just does it just does it on its own. To all my friends who like to garage sale, this is definitely the way to do it!!!
One of the biggest reasons for Glickin’s global success is the way it automatically delivers you right to nearby garage sales. Instead of posts being scattered like normal classified sites like Kijiji and Craigslist, Glickin sorts sales from closest to furthest. Now keep in mind, in order to harness these powers, you do have to allow locations and have your GPS on.
ON THE HOMEPAGE you’ll find 4 buttons. The top 2 are for finding garage sales, and the last 2 are for posting sales. Now if you’re wondering why there are 2 buttons to post and 2 buttons to view, you’re not the only one. But the way Glickin is designed, is actually quite genius.
TO FIND SALES NEARBY just tap either of the top 2 buttons on the home page. The “BY DISTANCE” button will show you sales nearest to furthest. So the first one might be 300 meters, the next 1.2 km, and so on.
The “MAP VIEW” button will show you all the sales in your area with color-coded pins to symbolize their open status. Colored dots can also be found on the sale details. Green means open, yellow are opening soon, blue are about to close and red are closed and not about to open for a while. You can also tap each pin to see the most pertinent info and tap again to go into the complete.
Both views (DISTANCE & MAP), work together to allow you to see the areas you want to hit, and then move from one to the next. Oh, and did I mention there’s a “Rate/Check Off” button at the bottom of every sale? Just tap it to simultaneously rate the garage sale and check it off your list.
Note: If the garage seller doesn’t add their contact info, then the icon will not appear at the bottom of the sale details page. Some people don’t want to talk, they just want you to come to their sale.
POSTING YOUR SALE is so easy it makes writing this seem pointless. I haven’t seen anything so slick since Letgo’s snap & post technology. Once you tap “POST SALE”, you’re almost halfway done. Glickin auto loads your address so all you have to do it adjust your hours, check off the general items tabs (tools, baby stuff, etc), add pics/video, and boom you’re done.
QUICK POST – This button is for posting other people garage sales. So when you come across a sale hosted by an old bitty who’s tech challenged, help them and the rest of us with a 2 second double tap. First, tap the “Quick Post” button obviously, then the green, “I’m here right now” button. That will drop a pin right where you are for 48 hours. You’ll also gain points that you can compare with your friends for who is the ultimate garage saler.
Extra Features when you log in.
Favorite Sales – Pre select sales before hand by tapping the heart button.
Check Off – Mark sales off your list so you don’t go to the same place twice.
Post/Edit your sale – Accounts are required to post so you can go back and edit and see how many people are actually viewing and attending your sale.
Featured Sales – Want some add some flare to your garage sale post? Glickin offers 3 different add ons to draw extra attention to your sale. This is also Glickin’s only source of revenue. So if you like Glickin as much as we do, consider purchasing some sort of boost to help keep the whole service going.
Overall, this app is very in depth and definitely the garage salers ultimate tool, but it’s surprisingly easy to use at the same time. I recommend signing in to access the additional features and boosting your garage sale so we all can keep what looks to be the greatest garage sale app and website ever conceived. Thanks for reading and feel free to pass it on or share to the garage sale, thifters in your life. The more people that know and use Glickin the better life will be for everyone.
