App Reviews

  • Entire system is flawed

    By Nunya biz ness
    I’ve tried so many times to sell stuff through this app and have been disappointed every time. Seems like the people that are “buyers” on here don’t do anything but waste your time asking lots of questions and basically wanting you to give it away for free only to leave you stranded in the end. They have no means of screening sellers and buyers to verify if they are even who they say they are. Also, I tried to advertise a yard sale and posted pictures of the things I’m selling to encourage people to come and check them out in person. In the end I get flagged by 5 miles and my listings get pulled for “duplicates”. Why? Because I used the same pictures for my individual listings as I had in my yard sale listing. So dumb in so many different ways. Just save your time people! If you want to safely and efficiently sell your stuff take the cut and sell through EBAY. Heck, at this point even offer up has better options for sellers than 5 miles. This app is nothing but overhyped due to their “duplicate” commercials on social media.
  • App for Scammers

    By Mark@Boston
    This app is plagued with scammers, and 5miles does absolutely nothing to protect the customer. On eBay when a buyer makes a purchase you know the sellers real name, email address, physical address, and phone number simply by conducting business with the seller. For some reason 5miles chooses to hide basic contact information from the buyer, so if anything goes wrong with the transaction the buyer is screwed. 5miles response to me was that that would be a good future update for the app to allow buyers to see the sellers contact information. My scammer’s account has yet to be banned, but can you believe the scammer was actually allowed to block me!? What’s even more ridiculous is that 5miles is unwilling to provide me with any of my sellers contact information unless I get a subpoena. Has anyone at 5miles even offered to reach out to the seller in an attempt to retrieve my money. Absolutely, NOT! eBay, why did I ever leave you!
  • Not the best selling app out there

    By phat300c
    First of all not a fan of how you need to keep “boosting” your items so people could see them. I sometimes forget to boost it and I get no sales on it when other selling apps boost it automatically for you. Also my biggest complaint about this app is how you could rate people before you make a transaction. I sell often and always tell people I won’t hold nothing for them , if someone shows up with money it’s getting sold. I have many bad reviews over people getting upset that I sold an item. So my reviews don’t look that good when in reality it has nothing to do with what I sold but people been mad they didn’t get it so I think that’s should be fixed! ASAP ! People should only be able to review you for what you sold not just get random review from people just view your products
  • Trash Compared to the others

    By Wrecklesss
    I’m a high volume second hand seller that has been selling second hand for over 10 years. First it was Craigslist, then OfferUp came along and then LetGo. Compared to the big 3, this app is utter trash compared to them. The traffic that you get on this app compared to the others deems this app completely worthless. When I post something on Craigslist, I also post it to OfferUp and LetGo. For example, I’ll post something on the Big 3. Within a day, I’ll have a few texts or calls from Craigslist. About 100 views and some messages on OfferUp, 60 Views and some messages on LetGo, and 2 maybe 3 views on 5miles with no messages. There’s just no point to posting on here. Just let this app die and use what everyone else is using. Also, it’s super annoying when you go to the app and you’re treated with an ad, and you gotta sit there and wait for it to disappear.
  • Fakes, Trash and Almost NO Real People

    By Arrggh Isle
    Verification Scam: As soon as you verify your phone number...get ready for 20 marketing calls to your phone number (even though they say they are just verifying you, they are really selling your phone number.) Of all the local buying apps, like Let Go (many people, but all junk and no way to really filter) or Offer Up (nagging marketing notifications and email constantly), this one is The WORST. No one uses it so it's pointless. Bots and fake users are the only things on the app and I'm in a large city. Let Go has the most listings but it's the worst app. 5Miles has no listings, or almost none, and is also pretty terrible. At least you can better limit the search miles, which none of the others really do well, but there are just no users on this app so it's a waste of memory space on your phone. Junk app. Useless.
  • No thanks, I'll use a different app

    By WordsYO!
    The profile photo upload is terrible. It won't center how you set it, and it has to be square or it's impossible to crop it correctly. Then, even when you do finally get it right (I had to go into a secondary app to crop my photo and then come back), it didn't center it as I had selected. It just showed the top left corner of the photo. Also, you need my phone number for verification? No, I'm not doing that. I've had way too many problems with apps and services sharing my phone number, now I get spam and scam calls all day long. So, I'm sorry if I don't trust you, but I just don't trust the situation anymore. Furthermore, if you need my phone number and won't budge on that, fine. Could you tell me BEFORE I typed up my whole first ad and cropped all the photos of the item (keep in mind, I had to back out and use a secondary app to make them square first and then come back to upload them). That was terribly annoying and insulting that you would try to make someone feel "forced" to submit personal info once they've completed their ad. I just started trying it out a few minutes ago, and you've already greatly annoyed me twice. Thanks, but no thanks. I will not be using your service.
  • Frustrating app, high online pay fee ☹️

    By soopernacholicious
    I first have to say the chat support people are great and response time is instant. However, my issue is that listings “default” to accept cash AND online payments and I am a new user and wasn’t aware of this - a buyer also was new to this feature and used it. Online pymt has EXPENSIVE 4.9% fee of the total Then when you get ready to transfer the $ to your bank a pop up message warns you better have the right info or be charged $2 on top of that fee. Go figure, my transfer got a massage saying it was rejected! How, i don’t know since o double checked before sending. A few more tries and I’ll have nothing left of the money I got for my sold item that alreasy was a loss. 😡

    By JodyDebi
    “-The 1st Time I opened the APP, I filled directs and registered, then W went to the EXACT-CATEGORY, and literally in 5 minutes found JUST what We desperately needed and the ASKING PRICE SEEMED SO FAIR, and the Gentleman so POLITE, I felt it was a “Fair & Square” Deal!!! I did not ask for the discount (which could not be much...the price was immediately satisfactory (I’ve been shopping-around BECAUSE I AM 60 YEARS OLD, TERMINALLY DISABLED, and on a ‘FIXED INCOME’ that barely allows Me an extra $400 monthly. But, that covers ZERO because mostly it’s for food. Potty paper. Toothpaste and CLOTHING from Goodwill. So, when I immediately FOUND IT... “I bought it!” (THAT IS HOW THESE APPS ARE SUPPOSED TO “WORK”)....! - -Right??! “-ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!” P. S:My Wife and I really feel the need to say “THANK YOU ‘5’-MILES”! You and My ADULT SELLER turned Me from “A BROWSING PERSON” into a “BUYING Person...In just “5 -MINUTES!”. (-that’s gotta be a RECORD!) -a little miracle happened!) lol!
  • False messages?

    By Hóok
    After reading a few reviews I feel like I’m getting the same fake messages from folks. In the past week I’ve gotten 5 seemingly interested people either asking if an item is available or requesting more information. As others have experienced, there is no response back to my reply. On other platforms, even when it is a mistake of just saying they like the item, at least they respond letting me know that’s the case. I’m not sure what’s going on here. As an added note, not a single person that has sent a message has been from remotely close to my area.. mostly from about 90 miles away. Again it just adds to my suspicions. I’ll probably give this another week before I delete the app.
  • poorly designed app

    By Rvw
    I spent about 15 minutes creating my first post, part of that time trying to figure out why they were automatically listing my price in a foreign currency (I'm in the US) and not allowing me to list in US$. After finally sorting that out, it turned out that the app won't post my item because I don't have a cell phone and therefore can't be verified. So, I tried to delete the account (apparently they don't actually 'delete', rather they 'deactivate' your account). It forwarded me to their website on my browser, and repeatedly had me complete captcha tasks, even though it said i was completing them correctly it won't sign me into my account on the browser, even though it works on the app itself.
