Ratings and Reviews
Awesome buying and selling app
Ignore the old reviews that say it crashes constantly, that it’s spam, disorganized, not managed etc., All that is untrue. You can sort and search by category, name pr type of item, price etc., You can also Reserve items for your buyer and schedule a meet up. It then goes into both of your “My transactions” tab. It even sends a reminder message to buyer and seller the day of the meet. Each group “community” seems to have their own rules but lots of them are the same. Negative reviews here complaining about those rules should not have joined that community. The rules are listed right on the same page as “request to join”. If they didn’t like the rules why join? I myself want a group that has some rules, structure and has someone available if I have a question. I don’t get that with other buy and sell apps. I like that the groups are local. I don’t have to worry about where the item is located or how far I have to drive to get it. Much better format too! So easy to find what I am looking for.
Worst managed app I’ve ever used
I only use the app because it is what everyone over here uses to sell their stuff in the military. You cannot copy addresses or phone numbers out of the messages almost ever. You have to pick single pictures to post in Messages and cannot pick albums or multiple pictures at a time. The application crashes constantly. Half the time you don’t even get notifications properly if at all. It is the same on iPads and iPhones alike. The app used to notify you when your items would get removed or we’re about to get removed and no longer does. Active conversations continually don’t show up or in active conversations get sorted back into the active conversations at random. And for some reason every time they get new admin’s they seem to be power-hungry military spouses who have no authority in the military but seem to want to dictate to everybody whatever they choose. They continually make up new rules since I’ve been on this program based on their emotional experiences and their frustration with customers they are supposed to support. They seem to constantly post rules that existed no other yard sale type site. Overall the site needs complete overhaul and they need to hire or have admin‘s that are there to help people with issues not be mafia dictators.
Pros and Cons
I have been with garage sale prior to its beginning here, on FB Exchange. I like how you can upload up to 5 pictures, but often find that sellers do not post that many. Usually just one. Then we all ask for them to post more. Sometimes the quality of pics aren’t that great either, or the pictures lack descriptions which include measurements, age of item and condition. I try to include all these things in my descriptions so I dont have to answer a ton of questions. I also post pics I know are pleasing to make it an easy sell. I work hard to earn praises! But I agree with others, the CON would be that there are some not so nice sellers, who fail to communicate in a timely manner. We should be able to rate for bad transactions too! Like a thumbs up and thumbs down, and allow the person to provide a feedback. Other than that, please update the system so we dont get multiple notifications!!
