    Okay app. No bugs but I noticed One: items that are within 1 mile of me are items posted months ago and recent ones are well over an hour and a half from me, really pointless on the "local" side. Two: there is no way to filter other than adding in an address point and again, pointless for the "local" claims of this app. Three: not a whole lot of private sellers, mostly commercials selling their store items Full Review

    Seller beware Most, if not all the people that showed interest in buying items were NOT local and very anxious to get my phone number and address... Or cleverly would ask me to text them quick if the item is still available... Luckily I knew better, but caution to others selling items on this site Full Review

    Really lame! I thought it would be as good as the original Wish app. It looks nice, and it has potential. I looked through a bunch (I mean many many) of the listings, and they have all been listed many months ago. That means: Items aren't selling (or sellers aren't reporting their sales) and there aren't many new listings, if any! Uninstalling... Full Review

    LOADED WITH SCAMS If you're shopping for something like a parking lot or a new game for your system fine. This could be a good app for something such as that. I strongly recommend not answering any ads or leaving your personal information regarding big purchases such as cars Etc. Perhaps which can monitor it a little better it is loaded with skins I literally just came across 15 in a row. Full Review

    The app itself is good, but this app seems to allow more of the scammers, and lies to proliferate throughout. I use two of the competitors, and this does not happen. I posted an item here, and within one hour there were at least 5 people trying to scam me out of my item. They must do a better job screening these accounts here. I am willing to give it another chance, but if this continues I am uninstalling it. Full Review

    Nothing but people trying to scam you for what you are selling. Had several people wanting to pay $800.00 for my used iPhone 7plus!! It's more than im asking and you can buy a new one for less money!!Wanting to use PayPal to pay so they can charge back. Not one legitimate contact. Given stories they are out of the country. Uninstalling the app. Waste of time!! Full Review

    Easy to use Only 2 inconveniente are: 1) I need to add pictures one by one instead of 4 or 5 at the same time in the order I click them. 2) M must exist a Listing Menu to check all the things I'm selling. Please do an update and include this improvals. Full Review

    Crap app Most users are spammers/non repliers. Apparently the Report User/Report Item feature doesnt seem to work or perhaps the Wish Team doesn't care. Folks, you are better off using Letgo and Offerup. At least they take care of the bogus listings. Full Review

    These apps are great. Only problem is so many idiots on here selling items for way more than their value or higher than retail price. Stop thinking ppl are paying those prices for your high priced crap! Full Review

    When searching, I like that results come up as you type, but if you hit enter, it gives no results. Also the location is odd. I don't live in a very dense area, so I'd like a search by city or zip. There are better apps. However, I like that I can see other states' items since I'm open to ship Full Review

    If you are selling on this app beware of scam buyers. They will ask you to email them and give your full name, address, and phone number to mail you a check. Do not cash the check. It will bounce and they will leave you at a loss of your money and your product. Full Review

    Loading of pictures It takes clicking same picture .5 or 6 times to load to be posted. This what prevents me from posting that much. I enjoy your app. The rest is okay but seems like their much traffic on here viewing my products. Full Review

    Worst app,worst customer service They randomly unlisted item, nothing even remotely prohibited & refuse to give reason,just smart alec replies. Issue never resolved. Other apps much easier to use & you get more offers. Full Review

    Only had it for almost a day, may have sold it all!! I've been so busy listing my artwork on all kinds of other sites so I only listed 5 here. Just checked in and I may have sold 3 of them!!! Awesome!!! I have great products but haven't found the right platform... Until now hopefully!!! * Nevermind it was a scam I think. Still for sale. Full Review

    Jose Hernandez Martinez Published date: September 11, 2017

    Is a good app, easy to use and to post items to sell. The bad thing is that so far the only ones that repond to my listing are scamers, people who are miles away who want to pay you by check and have the item pick up, and they even throw in an extra. Full Review

    I had an item removed that did not break any of the sites selling rules. For this stunt alone im deleting my account and ill use Letgo instead. They don't randomly remove items for sale just for fun. Full Review

    Small range for local selling Great that it shows the geographic range where your items can be viewed by other users who live in that range. But the range is only within 1 km from your location... If not many users exist within that small area, then the likelihood of selling anything seems slim. Would be nice to be able to manually adjust the geographic range to your own preference. If that option exists, then it's not easy to find on the app... So, I feel like posting anything on here might be a waste of time. Full Review

    Absolutely garbage Searching feature is not working. When you type in to search for an item, it would have a list is drop down items but when you click show results, NOTHING pops up. It keeps saying that is not able to find result. Worthless search Frasier if you ask me. Full Review

    It takes down totally legitimate adverts saying they violate some or other rule or are copyrighted. When it's a good photo I took of my dining chair for example. Also uploading images is more laborious that all the other apps I have tried. Full Review

    Chad David Anderson Published date: August 3, 2016

    Good selling tool! It is a good selling tool for the local person who is not trying to start or run an online store (like on eBay or Amazon)! It is very easy to list your items and it only takes a minute or two to have the listing up to where the general public can see it! I haven't purchased anything from the site yet! I hope it goes as easy as listing an item! Full Review

    Andrew Holm Published date: June 20, 2017

    Literally every single message I got was from a scammer. Everything I wanted to purchase was already gone because its been a year since they were listed. So no filter system for thieves and scammers. And posts do not fall off or get auto deleted. Bad app for selling and buying. Full Review

    Alli Catone Published date: June 21, 2016

    Can't sell anything. Idk if its me or my stuff or what but I can't sell any if my stuff and I'm like really needing to badly. And the worst is this isn't the only app im having issues with. I know for a fact I'm not asking too much for my things and its all great stuff that's been taken great care of. So I'm sure its not the app in general but it hasn't done me any good at all.

    Patty Heward Published date: February 20, 2017

    I think that there should be a way to be able to get more mileage to where you're selling from. I can't get it to show anywhere past 1mi from where I'm selling. It is very annoying that I can not get more people to see what I'm trying to sell because I can't get it to post past a mile. I can't change it. Please fix this problem A.S.A.P. Full Review

    I don't like the fact that it put your address right on there and then if you change it it takes you way the hell out somewhere. That's not something that makes you feel real comfortable. Just anybody can pop up at your house! Full Review

    Poor Keeps dropping my questions to sellers. They end up with half sentences, if anything, and I loose the buy. It's not a loss of a cool new t for the beach, but my dinner. This is how I make a living and people don't spend like the Clinton years anymore. Full Review

    Wayne Published date: February 19, 2018

    Poorly designed app, support, and policies. I sell many items on various apps. This is the only one that normal items get randomly and incorrectly flagged and removed by WL staff. I contacted them and after multiple emails, they we're comicly clueless. The app is super basic, offering very few sales tools to help buyers and sellers. And there are far more scammers on this platform than any other. Buyer/Seller beware. I'd look elsewhere. Full Review

    Terrible. I put up one ad and quickly got 4 messages all from so called interested buyers who were all fraudulent. This is an awful app. It's called Wish Local but I have had no response from anyone local. Nigeria and worse. Avoid. Use OfferUp and Letgo instead. Full Review

    This seems way to good to be true. I had people offer my selling price plus extra $30 or so. Than they ask you to take your asking price and use the rest to pay a mover. This sounds so much like a scam. Full Review

    Die Rollers Published date: December 4, 2017

    Horrible. My listings keep getting taken down for some reason even though they don't fall under one of the prohibited reasons. There is no customer support. Half the users selling are highly inactive. You're better off using 5miles or letgo. Full Review

    *UPDATED* 1st day of posting and I have received nothing but scammers trying to buy using a check from a different state. *I have had this app for 2 weeks and I get scammers trying to buy my products with checks on a daily basis. They want you to email them because they are at work or out of town....or send them a text so they don't have to talk using the app. Not one legit buyer. Don't download this app until they figure out how to stop these people!! Full Review

    Murray Moran Published date: September 3, 2017

    I have listed a bunch of items on here and nearly every inquiry I get is from an obvious scammer. I have looked for items on here and the app is full of scammers saying "I won't respond to questions in the Wish app, email me." There doesn't appear to be any interest from the app developer in getting rid of the scammers. It's ridiculous at this point. OfferUp or Letgo are both better. Full Review
