Listia is a mobile marketplace where you sell things you don't need and get stuff you want in return, for FREE. Earn credits by giving stuff away to reuse, and use those credits to get free stuff you really want from other users. The more you give away, the more free things you can get.
How It Works:
1) Declutter - Sell all the things you don't use - from DVDs to clothing to toys, for free!
2) Earn Credits - Rack up credits when others win your listings.
3) Reward Yourself - Discover and get stuff you'll love from other members or the Listia Rewards Store!

Not what it used to be or meant to be
I was with Listia for 5 years and the whole purpose of the site was to allow people to get rid of things they don't use and others could get them with credits as a fair trading system which is genius , however used to be 100 credits would equal 1 dollar so often I would be able to get many useful things for my family .. over the last couple years credit inflation happened and whoever ran Listia before clearly doesn't run it now because it's a complete scam anymore and a waste of time and money it was a wonderful site which is why I used it for so long however " I quit Listia a year ago " because of inflation and I no longer felt the value of the intent is good anymore or beneficial for either seller or buyer . Don't waste your time you need to have a million credits in order to get anything on there and you'll get maybe 2-500 credits a day with " bonus credit stuff " big waste of time anymore . I like the old system personally but felt everyone benefited more by the old system since currently a 10 dollar value is worth 800k in credits which is complete crap that used to be $800 worth and no one would spend that on an item worth 10 bucks really don't Let anyone fool you - hope this review helps anyone who thinks this would be a great and beneficial site it used to be but no any more ,now it's a total joke !
A welcomed update that provides more features, but still needs work
It's not what it used to be and the staff now make arbitrary changes that negatively affect buyers and sellers without any notice whatsoever! I would still like to see a way to search my listings to find sold and completed items easier. It's a real pain to have to scroll through months and months of listings to find what I'm looking for. A jump to page function would be nice. The site will probably implode before they realize the mistakes that they have made along the way!
In all of the honesty
I loved the app. I am so addicted to it. Especially for plant seeds and potted plants! I won a pretty good number of bids last night and today! Yes, the whole surveys and apps-to-try may be kinda annoying but I think that's how you earn more points without spending too much with real money? I did some and I got a lot of rewards. Not a serious problem I have with the app so far.
