Love this app. Have been able to satisfactorily communicate with buyers and sellers. I like that you can rate buyers and sellers.
THEY SELL ANIMALS 1/5
THIS IS DISGUSTING, People are selling pitbulls mostly on this app. It's disgusting the condition some of them are in... I mean it's terrible, report them when you can I have report 20 of them..it's so sad. Adopt don't breed more.

Good and Easy app to use 5/5
Fix the camera issue! Photos look stupid 1/5
I really hate there updates where you have to crop your photos! I like to take nice close up photos and always makes me crop them really annyoing! And if someone leaves you a bad review customer service won't help! Very sad
Great App but have to pay to get Noticed 5/5
Great app to sell and buy but you have to pay to be promoted and to get noticed.
I'm new to 5miles. So I may come back for update. So far this seems to be a very good app, All of Letgo and then some. User friendly and fast. I like that. As far as the undesirable people. They are everywhere. Most are good down to earth people. I have had a lot of trouble with people on the other apps too. However you can after a while figure out the good from the bad. Just pay attention to the way they are chatting.
MONEY HUNGRY 1/5
By 5miles now MONEY HUNGRY
Now they are charging???😠 Fuc#%# YOU 5MILES 🖕 .!.
I agree 3/5
I agree with PigPenX, the default search when starting the app could at least be within my zip code. I found something on here and was ready to message them. But I saw then that it was 45 minutes away, and not worth the gas and time for the item. Sadly, it was a beautiful shower caddy that I won't be having.
Not impressed so far 1/5
I've listed and sold two items. One was a video card with two photos of the card (side and one showing ports.) I received a notice that my listing was in violation for showing personal information. What personal information? I didn't have any in the info about the card either. Weird. Anyway, sold the card.
Second listing was for a used bluray. Sold it too with no problems.
Then, tried to withdraw the $25 (minus small fee) and -- despite showing my withdrawal request was successful -- I received a notice the next morning telling me the transaction was flagged for "suspicious activity". What?!
So I contact support. First reply is that my request is being escalated and I'd receive a reply in 12 hours. Fine. 16 hours later (splitting hairs here), I get a reply telling me to send proof showing "the authenticity of the transaction." Ok, what? I submitted the withdrawal using the 5miles app. Is there any other way?
I cannot recommend this app after my experience so far. Even a very small withdrawal request (transfer to my bank) using their app is apparently too much to ask. Even worse is that $25 has disappeared from my 5miles wallet balance. So, they've essentially taken my money and I've already sold off the items.
*** Update 4/21/17 ***
It took some go-around with support but I think I've finally cleared up their concerns about the withdrawal. For now, I stand by my earlier review. 5miles support indicated there wasn't much communication for the two items I sold (at the same time to a husband and wife couple I was having dinner with.) There wasn't much communication inside the app because we were already meeting face-to-face. We only used the app to complete the transactions so the buyers could easily use their 5miles wallets and because I'd already had one item listed.
The app requires buyers to click a button to indicate receipt of the item before funds are released. My buyers did that at the time I handed over the items. The funds were then added to my wallet and I later requested the transfer of funds to my bank. Only several hours later did I get a notification there was a problem with my withdrawal because of "suspicious activity."
To resolve this with support, I had to reach back out to those buyers so they could email 5miles to confirm a second time (each) that I had indeed given them their items. I understand security concerns but this was completely unnecessary in my opinion because those two buyers had *already* clicked to acknowledge receipt of the items from within their respective 5miles apps.
To the developer response: thank you for letting me know about the link. I wish your message had been clearer about that instead of a vague "personal information" remark. The link was to the graphics card manufacturer's site to show info about the model but I understand those can be faked and I'll refrain from including links in the future. Regarding the email, I had to reach out to your support and take the initiative to resolve this situation. Nobody reached out to me despite the initial notification that they would.
Simple and clean 4/5
Very simple to post and sell.

Great app. 5/5
I have found great things for an amazing price, and also I have sold a few item I'm so crazy about these app.
A really bad search feature 2/5
The search feature yields more irrelevant results than any other app I have ever seen.
Money Savages 1/5
Used to be nice. Now they want to charge to simply put a car ad? Thats just insane. All they want is money. Are they not already making enough with all the ads they have? Not worth getting...
Muy buen 5/5
Muy buena application
Keep taking down my posts. 1/5
They keep taking down my posts. They say my item is forbidden because it's used and to look at the forbidden items list. I try to click on the link to forbidden items but it's broken. I contact customer support and they said I can only sell if brand new. I try to sell another of the same item that is brand new, as brand new and they took it down again. Don't waste your time or money with this app
Very Functional 5/5
Simple and easy to use. Great design.
I usually use Offer Up & Craigslist & FB Marketplace but couldn't find the desk I wanted so I downloaded 5Miles & within the hour found what I wanted nearby for reasonable & got it. Love that you can easily adjust the area to search in & that it's accurate. Unlike Offer Up the listings will show the wrong areas, I hated that. Happy with my first purchase!
Great !! 5/5
I love this app, is so easy to upload things and fast in sending you alerts. They just need to work on searching matter. If you search for something things that has nothing to do with the search pop up. Other Than that is a great app
Todo bien 5/5
Best app ever 5/5
The app is by far the best I have seen out there I really enjoy it.
Horrible Customer Service! 1/5
I had someone harassing me because I sold an item to another person as in "first come, first serve", then he gave me a bad review in which they won't take off! So it's apparently "my fault" for selling to someone else somewhere else. I don't need harassment over an item and a bad rep but now I'm "shady". Don't care for this app anymore.
Crisp & Clean Operating Funtions 5/5
Much more professional and functional than most. Character counts in description are a must, so two thumbs up for these guys and gals!

Ease of use 5/5
This site is more friendly than others out there. Letgo for instance....Thank you.
Money hungry app 1/5
These guys charge money simply to put up a single post for a car. No other app does this. I would understand if the app shows results but it's to an audience of like 2k people. Not only that I tried putting up a service and it was charging me for that. They just want money, it's full of ads, and doesn't even show results and they still want you to pay. Nothing but money hungry savages. I used to be a vendor here with over 500 followers and I've been here since literally day one. I have no decided to delete this app because of their ways and I'm sure I'm not the only one. With less and less vendors/buyers there will be no activity on this app which will ultimately result in its own default.
Great App 5/5
I have listed several items on 5 mile abs sold them quick. This is a great app to sell and buy items at a huge discount.
Very good and reliable app. I've been able to connect with great persons here on business.

Has turned to garbage 1/5
Theirs a lot more apps that let you post stuff for free and reaches a lot more people will not be using this app anymore.
Was very happy but not anymore 1/5
By Yoska c
Lol. Now 5Mile is charging people for posting ads. Sorry 5 mile but now I am moving to Offer Up App were is free. I wish I can give you guys 0 stars
By Geek house
I'm enjoying the ability to see the price before looking at the listings further.
No issues so far 5/5
I have been looking for a new puppy. Yes somethings are overpriced. Something are used and never would buy. But this is the US and we are a capitalist society. You can charge whatever you want and it is buyers beware to do your research or purchase an item at an outrageous price. Don't fault the app because you do not like the pricing. So far we have had great people who are selling their puppies at a reasonable price.
Neat Concept; Flaky Folks 2/5
I have had a dozen or so good and newer quality items for 100$ + and the people are so flakey and FOS. I have decreased asking prices to half of originals but will not give stuff away. This and "let it go" is just as bad as craigslist! Community and people these days lie to much! People's word is SH!T.
Great app 4/5
Works great, download it!
