Not a good experience overall 1/5
By Ryan Stout
I got the LetGo app as well as 5Miles.
Photos: One thing I loved on 5Miles was the ability to select several photos during the photo upload process. Whereas LG only allowed one photo selection at a time and I had to wait on each photo to load before I could select the next one.
Wrong Category: The other thing about 5Miles, two of my toys were categorized wrong. Why? There was not a toy section, so I put it under Other. When I got notice, I looked around and guess where I found Toys? Under Fashion and Accessories. Really? When is a toy a fashion or an accessory? No, you guys have the category mis-categorized. Plus, you can’t just select a new category, you have have to delete the post and start over. Time consuming and ridiculous.
Sales: Even though I only had seven items posted I got no likes, no interest and no sales. On other sites I got likes and questions.
Folowers: I got two followers. Both Male. I know anyone can follow who they want, but I thought it was weird being I was selling kids toys, baby blankets, woman’s dresses and house shoes. I felt like this is not a dating site and felt uncomfortable. Especially since I never had that experience on other selling apps.
Other than that, I don’t like the auction on the site at all and things kept telling me I need to boost and stuff. Not interested, so I deleted the app.
Great app 5/5
Love using this all to make extra money as well as getting great deals, thanks 5 miles
Cool app 5/5
Thanks for such easy and fun app, love and respect for you guys!
I’m not very “technology savy” but this 5 mile is pretty easy to use!!
Worst app ever!!! 1/5
Fake user, time wasters. And they spy on your messages!
They say you cannot rehome pets, but I see people doing it all over this app yet when I want to rehome my dogs puppies it’s not approved even though I did not post a price, til someone messaged me and asked how much the fee was, I replied and suddenly my post was disapproved.
Money hungry 1/5
By Juan Fuerte
You have to pay for many listings, very money hungry app, also they force ads on you
Major glitch!!! 4/5
I dig this app but I can’t even use it now. Won’t even load/open.
Used to be good 1/5
This app used to be good but now they charge me to post anything on there why pay to put things on here that don’t really sell anyway and you can go somewhere else and list them for free

“Deal dash” scam 1/5
I recently have gotten into this deal dash biding thing that has started up on the app. I really liked the idea. However it is soooo poorly done. The items are mostly false advertised and are so cheap there not even worth the few bucks to buy.
However for starters on my situation I won 3 items off the bids. 2 of which never came yet. When contacting customer service all I get is a ton of apologies but no actually service. Then after 2 weeks of trying to get the issues fixed I receive my 5 dollars in credit back as a “courtesy” because if you get screwed and not get your item like you won ,apparently that means you get screwed out of your credits you earn by getting people to join the app and spend money. Which the 5 dollars was only for one item. I’m still waiting on another case to get my other item I still haven’t received fixed..... even though I’ve mentioned to the customer service people several times about both of my issues. Oh and after I got my 5 dollar credit back I was given 4 days to use it or it goes away and told nothing else would be done and the case would be closed. I’ve been in the customer service business for about 5 years now so I know how I would handle a situation when it goes wrong like this. However after waiting 3-4 weeks and not get my item then another 2 weeks talking to customer service for them to just pass me around and not really take care of me for being a customer nor actually listen to what I’m saying is just super horrible service and frustrating.
I suggest if you want to bid on something go to eBay or any other app. You’ll more likely find better quality of items and not get scammed because eBay customer service actually handles stations when they occur. You also won’t get lied to by saying like oh look this item is worth 200 bucks and how your biding on it for a super discounted price when it’s worth only 50 cents.
LOSE YOUR MONEY “” 5/5
IF YOU BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS APP YOU WILL HAVE PAID FOR NOTHING AND NEVER GET YOUR MONEY BACK. READ ALL THE REVIEWS AND SEE FOR YOURSELF ESPECIALLY THE ONES ABOUT THEIR COMPLAINTS THERE ALL THE SAME. 5MILES IS A SCAM AND APPLE SHOULD DO CUSTOMERS A GREAT FAVOR AND TAKE THIS APP OFF
Super Nice person 5/5
He is super nice person,
Thank You very very much for everything

My 5 miles Review 5/5
There’s zero bad/negative to say. Ok I’m an old dude(53). So, with that said,..take a sec. think about what’s goin down. Here’s a piece of merchandise that for whatever reason someone would rather have it’s value in cash. Pics, few words, couple numbers, a symbol or two. Post. Gimme my friggin money. TOUCHDOWN!!!👍👍
Auctions are horrible 1/5
DO NOT BUY FROM AUCTIONS. CHEAP CRAP, IF THEY EVEN SEND IT. Ordered a camera from the auction and 2 months later, nothing has shipped.
Excessive Spam Notitications 1/5
There are too many, way too many, so many push notifications that are so irrelevant and ridiculous. It’s extremely frustrating that my entire phone notification screen is filled of 5miles notifications. Seriously? I have offerup, letgo, FB Marketplace, Mercari and NONE of them spams me with useless notifications. I deleted all my items and uninstalled.
Also please don’t don’t bother using the Dash feature. It’s completely fake, the bids are all for show with fake generic American names. It’s terrible and that should be completely illegal.
This app was great and now ruined.
Worst customer service ever 5/5
Customer service is absolute trash on this has been app.
What’s goin on 1/5
Is this app even still active every time I download it it tells me network error won’t let me go to chats or previous listings that I posted
They duck 1/5
I have not received a dam thing I ordered out 200 bucks don’t use this app ever!!!!!
Terribly annoying marketing that won’t stop! 1/5
I’ve disabled all marketing and suggested item notifications in my settings, but they still harass me constantly with those kinds of useless alerts!
I’m deleting the app and going back to Craigslist, there’s just as many fake users and scammers on both, and at least Craigslist respects their users preferences!
Ability to rate anyone you contact is odd and makes little sense. Also tracks every offer as a purchase. So, needs some tweaking.
Cannot see any of the pictures on the post 1/5
I’ve used the app on android before and recently switched to iso and cannot view any of the pictures on the post just the descriptions
IS THIS REALLY 5 MILES OR 100 MILES???? 1/5
By Christian lepe
Its very frustrating to see an app that has good items but they are in a very long distance. I wasn't able to buy one single item in this app or even sell.Some of the items are about 2 hours away so why would this app be called 5 miles???
By the way the shipping has very low quality items which makes it not useful. Im very disappointed with buying because there is literally nothing i could by and if there is its way more than 50 miles. I would recommend to make shipping for users so they can buy without having to pick up.
THIS APP IS TRASH! THE WORST EVER.IT HAS LOTS OF ADS AND ITS VERY ANNOYING.
Offer up is in another level with the items and makes it more efficient app.Maybe you guys can get some tips from there.
Overall there wasn't a point to be in this app since I couldn't buy what I was looking for.
Why can’t I post anything! 1/5
I used to like app but now it’s trying to make me connect to my Twitter account before posting. Even after I connect to Twitter it still doesn’t post. Smh
The bid process is a joke. This seller has had my shipment ready to ship since 1-25-19 but never moved again. Furthermore the 5miles customer service is a joke as well. I have been back and forth with them for a week and all they do is put me off for a day every time. It’s pretty obvious that the seller is a fraud and now I can’t even get my money back. Beware 5mile and the bid sellers are not legit. Save your money and use offer up or another app to buy and sell. 5 mile is pathetic at best and won’t protect their loyal patrons. I have a 100% rating so I’m not a person who has questionable practices.
I have run in to a couple scammers that want you to pay outside of the app and never send the item you wanted. And then lie blatantly telling you they send it and give a fake tracking number to “prove” they sent it. Most notably a woman named chrishawna Jefferson did this to me. And then blocked me so I can’t post a comment on her posting.
Very good app 5/5

Es lo mejor para los trabajo
Works great to make a little extra money.
0 stars - STAY AWAY! Foreign LLC 1/5
By STOP - bad apps
After all the comments, is a *class action lawsuit* warranted? No, terms of service say binding arbitration. There seems to be zero accountability for this Hong Kong based private entity.
I never comment on apps - the experience was SO bad - I write to warn you- “stay away” “don’t waste another second to download”. Seems like a sham app created for harvesting your personal info — bank #, cell #, FB...
I had zero sales. Spent lots of time creating listing only to have it repeatedly rejected with a template explanation.... like a chatbot getting it all wrong & then suspending my account. There’s no way to turn off the unwanted “refer to friends” for everything I post.
Finally, this app seems to really be a fishing tool for cell phone numbers that result in spam calls... it seems like a sham for something else going on behind the app... info gathering - links to your Facebook wants access to your data & also your purchases & selling habits. I read the terms of service, which confirmed my suspicions.
All those generic 5-star ratings seem to be employee, marketing manager creations.
Go with Offer-up, Letgo, eBay, ... anything but this.
Not like it used to be 1/5
By Bucky ray
5 mile got away from used to be. Now all i see is dealers using it and biding on China made cheap items.
Ship sellers 5/5
Make more money have more customers of course watch the auction guy I won blue tooth headphones over 8 days ago have not received yet it’s ok cause the bank will refund your money but shipping is easy great item great app but pay thru 5 miles app then it’s shipped with tracking then the app has A 30 Day refund policy in place can’t be beat this app was a great idea but watch theses sellers with no reviews scary Good Luck Sellers
Don’t!!!! Use this App 1/5
I use this app for two days and I purchased seven items all seven items were canceled it just makes me wonder what they’re doing with my bank account information don’t trust this site
I love this app 5/5
Has a great user interface!
The substandard 1/5
Cheap Chinese product auction is now the forefront of this app.
Labels pet adoptions but allows backyard breeders to thrive with their sick and inbred puppies. Admins allow this.
If you’re looking for stolen goods, Chinese junk products or sickly inbred puppies at a low “revoking fee”... 5miles is the app for you.
Offerup has better community standards.
Easy app 5/5
Very easy to use app.
Most stupid app I’ve ever used 1/5
I ordered 4 items off the bid part, literally only 1 worked. And that was barely. 2 didn’t work completely and 1 wasn’t even delivered to my address. They could see this in the system (I still have pictures and everything) but wouldn’t send me a replacement or refund me my money. They are just looking to get your money and sending the cheapest made products that don’t work. If I could give negative stars I would.
I love 5 Mile 5/5
They always have what I’m looking for.

السلام عليكم مرحب شلون طريق التعامل معاكم بخصوص المشتريات
Not good 1/5
I tried buying a phone and the person said they could shut it to me and they stole my money !!!
Avoid! People send inappropriate messages 1/5
I tried to report a person messaging me. The message they sent were sexual and very inappropriate.
I tried to report the messages and the person. First of all, none of the app people ever got back to me. Second, no body even tried to block the person. So I keep getting sexually harassing messages for the same person.
This is wrong. Avoid this app.
Needs improvement 3/5
By Covina Radio guys
I wish 5 miles was like before it super expensive to post.
Dumbest App Ever!! 1/5
Don’t waist your time with this app. All the work is done to post, then no one ever messages you. So, what do you do, delete the app , right?! Of course you do!!
Well about 2 months later you get a random text message from the 5 mile app ( because you had to give them your mobile number during registration) that “someone is interested in your item.” So you re-download the app. Long story short, you never sell anything!!
