Fake Messages 1/5
By Jeb jks
I get a lot of the same messages from various “users”. Pretty sure these are fake accounts.
For such a broad app, very easy to use, post and deliver. Only thing it can’t control are those connecting with you within 5 miles. Otherwise, I’ve sold a number of things through the app. Last, I spent two days in my driveway attempting to sell items at a yard sale, with no success. I sold all items on this app in a matter of three days.
Account freezes 1/5
By متين افغان
Useless! Offerup ans letgo are much better. My account got frozen with 5mile for many days
I like it better than offer up 5/5
It’s like craigslist and offer up but a little bit better than offer up
5 miles great app 5/5
Easy to use. Great way to sell your stuff
Used to be great 1/5
Used to be the best app to sell stuff. Now its turned to crap. Since the unlimited boosts went away my listings are getting substantially less views and therefore offers. Listed the same item on 5miles and offerUp and got over 500 views on my listing and more than 15 offers on offerup compared to 30 views and 2 offers on 5miles. If you don't pay good luck selling.
My messages never load
5miles convince 5/5
This is one of if not the best selling sites I have had the pleasure of selling and buying from.

Disappointed with these latter versions 2/5
Since the last few updates it take linger for the app to load. When I get a reply back from a seller. I go to the page to read it and it takes up to ten minutes before the replys load and i can read what had been sent
A friendly buy/sell community within an app! 5/5
Selling is easy and the responses I get are nearby. I've had folks meet me, come to me, or I come to them. All friendly people! I love it.
4stars because I would be able to open messages and when I did it showed multiple times
Making buying easy 5/5
By baja Ron
Wanted too much personal info 1/5
Never got past giving personal info without even seeing what it does. Back to Craig's list.
Biggest Issue are the people using it! 4/5
Great app! I only wish one of these buy/sell apps would automatically adjust a rating or have a response rating on all these people that NEVER answer a single question or even an OFFER.
Functional and easy to use 5/5
By Herson da Person
Old conversations can't be erased, but everything else is great.
Beware of Hidden FEES! 1/5
I used 5 miles to sell things that I no longer needed. One day I noticed that it had my account listed as a “DEALER” and that it wanted me to pay to list anything. I emailed them and they told me that since I had sold more than 5 items under the category of automotive that I was automatically a dealer.
I had sold parts off of my personal Harley after I had purchased replacement parts. To avoid the items cluttering my garage, I would sell the items as I replaced them.
This is just a scam on their behalf to charge fees for their so-called FREE listing app.
Great items, great people
FAILED TO ADD PHOTOS; messaging bug 1/5
By No bueno 99
Failed to add photos error
Messaging error: messages take minutes to load (shows a blank page), then when messages do load, you get 5-10 of the same messages repeating.
Unable to communicate through system.
Use to be good glitches 1/5
Not sure what is happening, but lately it seems like I always have Network Error. I have networking working on every other App I have, but 5miles :(
Messages goes through super slow with big delay. I barely was able to met the guy because of this problems. Had to stitch to texting
Also I see from email notification someone just sent me a message, but I can't even reply! :/
Very easy to use and look for sales
By Bingo Bengal
A pleasure to work with for polite and friendly
Nice person 5/5
He showed up with no problem!
Great app 5/5

“Fake users” 1/5
I can’t 100% prove it but I get messages from people who have not been active in multiple days or weeks. I think the app is looking at products that are not selling well and it sends automated messages from inactive accounts. The messages are asking questions like “ Do you have more pictures?” I always have at least 5+ pictures in my listings. When I ask what other pictures they want there is never a response. They ask “Can you give me more information?” I over explain each of my products to make sure that there is no confusion later in the process. But again when I ask what other information they are looking for, no response. I get the question are they being sold as a group or individually and in the listing it says “I am pricing/selling them individually.” Shocker no response from them either. I have yet to sell anything on here because the couple times I have had real interest the people don’t show up or they are expecting me to deliver a $15 product 30 miles from my house for free. Use a different app this one doesn’t seem to have an ethical setup!
5 adds 1/5
Way to many adds. No thanks
Upset / disappointing 1/5
I keep asking people questions about things and they don’t answer.... it looks like no one wants to sell anything ... what a bummer 😐
Upgrade the app please 1/5
Ever since we started using ios 11, 5miles is acting funny. I can’t read the messages I’m receiving and sometimes it takes for ever to show. Please fix this problem.
Problems with the messages 2/5
I updated to latest version and now I cannot see the incoming messages most of the time on any of the items. At 1st it took a long while to show on my screen and now they just don’t show. I only get part of the message on the notification and it also seems that sometimes when replying they don’t see my message either. I have to quit the app and then wait if by luck they appear that person(s) has sent it more than once b4 I could be able to see it. It just takes a while to get back to them. Problem I didn’t have b4.
Good app 4/5
By baby girl😍💖😌
This app is really cool. I’m able to talk with people in my city/town and close by and the prices usually aren’t crazy. The app itself isn’t really messed up and stuff. I have tried a lot of different apps and this one is one of the best so far.
Unable to use 1/5
Will not let me register with my cell phone number. Keeps telling me it is a VOIP line. Letgo and other apps don't do this to me. I only have one phone number and it blocks it. Going to uninstall.
If you don't have a phone number you can't verify this is some trash!...
Cool up but u need payment 5/5
Use offer up for free listings
No offers!!! 1/5
I work with five different apps to sell my items for cheap and mind you they are super cheap, my items only sell on the other apps on this one I don’t even get a notification I mean I have items for five dollars so I guess that it only works if you pay extra so people can see your item...
Ridiculous amounts of advertising. 😩
Just made $300 selling a bike I outgrew, didn’t pay for any of the “exposure,” and I got the money I wanted in maybe a week!! LOVING IT!
Fix it 1/5
I cant post the title more than 10 characters
Love This App 5/5
Just completed my 1st sell and 2nd purchase. I love app. I just wish the notifications we a little louder or more noticeable. They are very easy for me to overlook.
Love this app 5/5
This app is funding my life 😊
Way too many unnecessary notifications. 2/5
Would not recommend. I got dozens of useless notifications, and not a single actual offer. Comparatively, I had several interested buyers on OfferUp and Letgo, without all the clutter that 5miles has.
Great app 5/5
This app is great but is there a way you can show when someone read a message and is there a way to send people an email to have them update their item after a few weeks because there is lots of things that I try to buy that are sold but they don't mark them sold
False advertising 2/5
By investigator jr
I'm getting tired of reporting fake and false advertising and keeping seeing the same product again and again. I'm reporting a customer that the cars he putting here are all wrong in miles and every time that I open this app I keep seeing the same cars. I know that there are false advertising because I went to check a couple of those cars and the miles are way too different
App went to good to point less. Only 5 free listings per year then you have to pay $5 for every other posting. D.E.L.E.T.E!
My favorite buying & selling app!!! 5/5
By Lilstarr.Chica : )
Easiest to use and I love the boost button that brings what your selling to the top over & over again.
👆🏼What is written above👆🏼 is not what I have typed but is it is exactly what I was going to say... truly my favorite app... and yes I do make money on it😁👍🏼😉 and I never had to spend a penny to advertise the stuff I’m selling like some other apps are trying to attempt to do...
Keep up the good work 5 miles❣️❣️❣️
L💗VE MY 5miles just saying 😏
By Marjean P
I cannot receive my messages I can’t get in contact with support please help the amp keeps shutting down
Really 5mile? 2/5
Y’all were OK, even though I sell more on OfferUp, but now you want to charge for the boosting that used to be free on your site??? You’ve already added advertisements everywhere. Your boosting set you apart from the rest. Unbelievable! So annoyed you think you had to go this route.
Fix the Picture cropping Feature! 3/5
We have stopped using this app due to the issue of half of our items being cut off on both sides of the pictures. It would be nice to have another form of selling however, The out of frame photos do not give the buyer a clear high quality photo to view the item. The crop feature is not required as most user are using there phone to post.
