Filter doesn’t work very well
EDAGrasshopper on 4/14/2018
App is good and I have sold a car on here. However, car filter doesn’t work. When I try to filter for year and mileage, it shows everything. :( I hope the developers fix this. It’s a good app overall

Pictures are automatically reordered
Nickickk on 4/13/2018
When you edit an item, the pictures get completed re-ordered for no reason. This is very frustrating and it’s been happening for years. Why can’t you leave the pictures in the same order I left them? I’ve never seen this happen on any other platform or website before. I’m staying with offerup. Sorry
Not the best selling app out there
phat300c on 4/13/2018
First of all not a fan of how you need to keep “boosting” your items so people could see them. I sometimes forget to boost it and I get no sales on it when other selling apps boost it automatically for you. Also my biggest complaint about this app is how you could rate people before you make a transaction. I sell often and always tell people I won’t hold nothing for them , if someone shows up with money it’s getting sold. I have many bad reviews over people getting upset that I sold an item. So my reviews don’t look that good when in reality it has nothing to do with what I sold but people been mad they didn’t get it so I think that’s should be fixed! ASAP ! People should only be able to review you for what you sold not just get random review from people just view your products
Appleinvader on 4/12/2018
So I got on there and you see a lot of items. The problem is most the stuff shown is over 60 days old. This app is not monitored or used.
The worst.
Ajberber on 4/12/2018
If you’re a seller, don’t bother. Your ads will be immediately removed over the simplest things. Like not putting it in the right category, even if there isn’t a category provided for your item and you put it in “other” it will still be removed. I took Live Photo’s of my product and they said they were stock photos that don’t show the real quality of the product and removed them. Sorry for taking good photos I guess lol I’ve used OfferUp and Letgo on a regular basis and they don’t give me any trouble. This app is a nightmare to deal with though. Don’t waste your time.

Great to deal with A++++ We all at Xoom Furniture are looking forward to assist you.
poorly designed app
Rvw on 4/11/2018
I spent about 15 minutes creating my first post, part of that time trying to figure out why they were automatically listing my price in a foreign currency (I'm in the US) and not allowing me to list in US$. After finally sorting that out, it turned out that the app won't post my item because I don't have a cell phone and therefore can't be verified. So, I tried to delete the account (apparently they don't actually 'delete', rather they 'deactivate' your account). It forwarded me to their website on my browser, and repeatedly had me complete captcha tasks, even though it said i was completing them correctly it won't sign me into my account on the browser, even though it works on the app itself.
I love this app

Total Ripoff!
VictoriaMG on 4/9/2018
I bought an ad to advertise for a moving sale. Since there was no category for “moving sale or estate sale,” I picked their “yard sale,” which seemed to be the closest thing to what I needed. The day of the sale, I went in the app and it realized that the ad was never posted, Bc it was in the “wrong category.” I appealed, but by the end of the day, it was still not posted. When I asked customer service to refund my money, Bc they did not provide the service for which I paid, they said no. Thieves! My advice? Don’t bother. Facebook’s Marketplace is where it’s at anyway. I have been on 5 miles for a couple of years. I’ve sold nothing. I have been on Marketplace for 6 months, and that’s where I sell the bulk of everything.

Demora en devolución de dinero
ismay d montero on 4/8/2018
La app no está tan mala . Yo puse un artículo y se vendió pero a pesar que 5 milles me cobra un interés mi dinero se demora en ponérmelo a la cuenta hace 5 días que hice una venta al comprador le quitaron en el momento su dinero y el mío hasta unos 15 días más dicen q no me lo depositan . Si uno vende es porque necesita el dinero no es porque uno desea vender sin beneficios y aún más si te cobran intereses el dinero de uno debe ser devuelto rápido . Espero que mejoren su app .
Way too much money

Never works
chrisl2112 on 4/4/2018
It always says "network error." Literally 90% of the time it doesn't work. Had someone interested in my item then it started giving me that error message after my first reply to the customer. Letgo and offer up ALWAYS work.
Promotes “prohibited” items via ADs
Bimstein on 4/3/2018
So I had a few listings and was notified they were not allowed; however, advertising for the exact items I was posting are allowed?! Discriminatory Business Practice — Poor business ethics
Worse app ever
Parkerview on 4/1/2018
I have been using this app for the past year. All other apps that I’m using are very productive, I have daily sales while this app, got me one customer that actually came, communicated and bought. All the users are sending INTERESTED but never reply back. In 1 year to get one customer is pretty lame. I feel there’s no exposure to my items even when I bump them a few times a day. I gave this app so many tries, hoping that it will get better but it’s not. I also contacted the app to check why my items don’t get popular but they didn’t reply. IF I COLUD GIVE THIS APP 0 STARS, I WOULD TOTALLY DO THAT!!!
Share sheet is very limited
sachin.. on 3/31/2018
The app is great for buying / selling stuff but with all the new iOS share extensions and all I feel that the feature is not implemented with this app. Please do so. Overall a good app
No real value, not many real users
elartcoello on 3/31/2018
The review by NDIBRO is the truth and 5Miles knows it well. Reading the response to his review is infuriating. Here is what you want to know: this app could have been great if it stuck to what you would assume the name implies. Items listed for sale by users within a 5 mile radius. Its not like that, its all over the map. I understand such small parameters would only work if this app was downloaded by almost everyone but theres no reason that couldnt be achieved by a strong following and ethics which are both missing from 5miles. They dont have a strong following and they have automated fake profiles that will occasionally show interest in items that havent got any attention lately so that you the person who listed doesnt forget that the app exists and seemingly is working towards making a sale. A random person more than 30 miles less than 10 more than 5 down tbe street doesnt matter messages you saying something similar to hey im interrested i would like to buy this or can you send me more pictures; you respond within the same minute or within minutes and all of the sudden this person isnt interested enough to respond how many times does this need to happen before you realize your being stringed along by 5 miles and theyre pseudo accounts. 5 miles is quick to remove any mention of fake accounts or unethical practices on the internet not just these reviews so if you see this dont forget. 5Miles isnt the only app pushing fake accounts but they seem to be the biggest offenders unfortunately.
Love it!!

Most sellers have been honest and easy to work with. App allows you to contact sellers and buyers anonymously until you decide to move forward. Have found some shady deals but most are legitimate and easy to tell the difference.

Fake User Reviews
lalalunenoire on 3/20/2018
People are allowed to post fake reviews. One user’s profile is rated 100%, but there are two other users posting multiple positive reviews. This person never showed up and I was not allowed to post my honest review on the user’s profile. What’s the point in reviews if only five star reviews are allowed to be posted. These profile reviews misguide other users. Emailed customer support about this and never got a reply. Update: contacted customer support again like the response suggested. I got a “we don’t handle this” reply and was asked to contact another team within 5 miles. Waste of my time.
Too many crazies
dacrow1970 on 3/19/2018
No place to block crazy people who refuse to leave you an acceptable offer and keep messaging for example a $200 item and they offer $5... there needs to be an easier way to block them. Also all these fake feedback people. To easy for anyone to leave you feedback
Gotcoler on 3/19/2018
It’s fun,!
Frustrating app, high online pay fee ☹️
soopernacholicious on 3/18/2018
I first have to say the chat support people are great and response time is instant. However, my issue is that listings “default” to accept cash AND online payments and I am a new user and wasn’t aware of this - a buyer also was new to this feature and used it. Online pymt has EXPENSIVE 4.9% fee of the total Then when you get ready to transfer the $ to your bank a pop up message warns you better have the right info or be charged $2 on top of that fee. Go figure, my transfer got a massage saying it was rejected! How, i don’t know since o double checked before sending. A few more tries and I’ll have nothing left of the money I got for my sold item that alreasy was a loss. 😡

App for Scammers
Mark@Boston on 3/17/2018
This app is plagued with scammers, and 5miles does absolutely nothing to protect the customer. On eBay when a buyer makes a purchase you know the sellers real name, email address, physical address, and phone number simply by conducting business with the seller. For some reason 5miles chooses to hide basic contact information from the buyer, so if anything goes wrong with the transaction the buyer is screwed. 5miles response to me was that that would be a good future update for the app to allow buyers to see the sellers contact information. My scammer’s account has yet to be banned, but can you believe the scammer was actually allowed to block me!? What’s even more ridiculous is that 5miles is unwilling to provide me with any of my sellers contact information unless I get a subpoena. Has anyone at 5miles even offered to reach out to the seller in an attempt to retrieve my money. Absolutely, NOT! eBay, why did I ever leave you!

Reviews were right about Spam Calls
bring-the-old-snapchat-back on 3/15/2018
I really tried to give this app the benefit of the doubt that maybe the spam calls are from people who did not switch the courtesy calls setting off on their phone. I downloaded the app, turned off those notifications, and then tried to sell some of things bcus I was looking for as many platforms I can sell my things at such as letgo and OfferUp. But as was mentioned, now I am being called every day, several hours throughout from spam/marketing calls. It is really annoying and having to block those numbers out. Deleted the app and never using again. DO NOT TRUST by verifying with your phone number unless you want to be spammed everyday.
It won’t let me place an item for sale
A-alvarez on 3/14/2018
So I’ve tried listing a camper shell for sale. They did not approve the ad and said that it was placed on the wrong category. I went in on line and saw for other camper shells on a different category, I listed my camper on that category and they still did not let me place the ad saying it was in the wrong category again. They will not tell me which category to use. No wonder why this is the least popular app in that category.
