Ratings and Reviews
I can’t 100% prove it but I get messages from people who have not been active in multiple days or weeks. I think the app is looking at products that are not selling well and it sends automated messages from inactive accounts. The messages are asking questions like “ Do you have more pictures?” I always have at least 5+ pictures in my listings. When I ask what other pictures they want there is never a response. They ask “Can you give me more information?” I over explain each of my products to make sure that there is no confusion later in the process. But again when I ask what other information they are looking for, no response. I get the question are they being sold as a group or individually and in the listing it says “I am pricing/selling them individually.” Shocker no response from them either. I have yet to sell anything on here because the couple times I have had real interest the people don’t show up or they are expecting me to deliver a $15 product 30 miles from my house for free. Use a different app this one doesn’t seem to have an ethical setup!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It's always some disappointed for not getting a response from people who you thought to be a potential buyer. In this case, we would advise you to check if those messages were from the same people, if you feel being harassed, you can make a report by going the user's profile page, tap the three white dots on the right top corner and tap report. Our team would process it as soon as possible. Also if you need other assistance, please don't hesitate to send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd love to help. Again thanks for sharing the information. :)
Not the best selling app out there
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
Entire system is flawed
I’ve tried so many times to sell stuff through this app and have been disappointed every time. Seems like the people that are “buyers” on here don’t do anything but waste your time asking lots of questions and basically wanting you to give it away for free only to leave you stranded in the end. They have no means of screening sellers and buyers to verify if they are even who they say they are. Also, I tried to advertise a yard sale and posted pictures of the things I’m selling to encourage people to come and check them out in person. In the end I get flagged by 5 miles and my listings get pulled for “duplicates”. Why? Because I used the same pictures for my individual listings as I had in my yard sale listing. So dumb in so many different ways. Just save your time people! If you want to safely and efficiently sell your stuff take the cut and sell through EBAY. Heck, at this point even offer up has better options for sellers than 5 miles. This app is nothing but overhyped due to their “duplicate” commercials on social media.
