Great market app !

Really and truly one of the greatest local market apps available . Can get good deals on everything from electronics to housewares . There is a feedback system so you can get an idea of who you are interacting . On a couple of my meet ups the other person mentioned that they were nervous about meeting up with cash to buy something. I’d recommend to those who are wary of meeting a “stranger” in public , pick a place like the DMV , a police station, or meet inside a store. Meet during daylight hours as opposed to nighttime, this way you could feel more secure about meeting up to trade . Don’t let the possible (if any) bad apples ruin the experience of using a market like this .

Quality of sellers has gone downhill

Used to love this app years ago and my experiences on it were largely positive but lately I have noticed a disturbing pattern: sellers are either putting up fake ads, don’t seem serious about selling or will leave conversations hanging in messages with no explanation or resolution. I see it happen on 5miles way more than I see on other apps. I use apps like offerup, Craigslist and Facebook marketplace and my experiences are much better at these other places. People on these other sites seem motivated to sell and will respond in a fairly timely manner and usually resolve the conversations whether it leads to a sale or not. I’m not sure why this trend of lazy, unmotivated or rude sellers on 5miles but it’s been happening way too much and so I wanted to share that on here. Not sure if 5miles can do anything about this disturbing trend but bottom line I think they should know how buyer experiences compare at other places. And no, I’m not low-balling sellers or being rude to them when I contact. It’s just a consistent pattern I have noticed these days that sellers on 5miles seem unmotivated and often leave conversations hanging way more than I have seen at other selling apps or websites.

Unacceptable!

I have had the app for a few years now and started running into an issue with posting. I wasn’t able to get past a certain point and kept giving me an error to where i couldn’t post any new items or even edit current posted items. I got so frustrated that i emailed their tech support to get the issue resolved. I emailed back and forth with now going on 4 people. At first they kept saying restart your phone and try reconnecting your internet and so forth which i thought was weird seeing as though my issue had nothing to do with any of those solutions. I then got an email from another department saying the reason for by denied purchase was due to not having enough “friends”. That’s when i knew they weren’t going to resolve the issue. Why is it so hard to fix a cliche on the app. I haven’t had this issue before so I’m not sure why it started now. It has made the app impossible to use which is very disappointing. I’ll be using other apps for my selling needs and keep this in mind when reaching out to a company like this. My issue is still currently unresolved.
