Pros: It’s a good app, pretty easy to browse local or long distance ads for people’s stuff. Categories to narrow the search. The app predicts what you will like based on what you buy or look at most. It’s easy to communicate through the app, and it gives safety advice like suggestions on where to meet when it sees you are planning a meeting. I usually give my cell number once we are meeting, but it’s safest to keep it all on the app for record if possible. Selling on the app is a breeze and there seem to be a lot of active buyers in my mid sized college town..I imagine it’s even better in metro areas or bigger cities. Most of my posts have gotten more response than a Craigslist ad ever got. They have Auto one button convo starters like “Is it still available” making it simple to shop. Free to buy and sell. Cons: The ads look deceivingly similar to posts sometimes so you accidentally get diverted to the web. Worst issue is that the way it’s designed, you can’t avoid accidentally sending the auto responses mentioned in the pros section. You will inadvertently send questions about things you were not interested in as you scroll through the app. A lot of flakey sellers, and no guarantee on product quality. Overall it’s a great app with just a few little flaws that are annoying at worst. But it’s mostly just an open second hand market. It’s a garage sale with pawn shop prices on a web platform basically.
I have sold and bought quite a bit of stuff and that part is great but the accidental messages I send and receive are the most annoying thing about this app. Half of my correspondence consists of “I’m sorry, that was sent by accident”. Or responding to someone else who sent an “I’m interested” by accident. Also, the pop-up windows when you save a post you like are very annoying. You have to sit and wait for the window to disappear so you can go back to looking. There’s no way to get rid of it. The window says “let the person know you’re interested” or something like that. And if every post would show the price before you click it would make searching so much easier. I have to click on every single item to find out it’s price and prices can range from Free to $1000 on the same item. Just try looking up treadmill! If someone could work out the bugs in the system this would be a very useful app! Also there’s no way to eliminate notifications. They automatically come and you have to go back and deselect the searches you’ve done otherwise you just continue getting them. So there’s always like 92 notifications that I truly don’t care about. Otherwise, easy to post and easy to sell! I have updated my review to five stars since this problem has been fixed and there are no more accidental messages. Seems to be going pretty well. Thank you so much, whatever techies fixed this problem. Now if you could only put the price on the add, that would be cool!
I think the concept of this app is awesome. In my opinion, it comes off as a very safe app. The letgo team gives you accessibility to safety tips when speaking or meeting with a potential/seller. You don’t have to put your full name or your real name, for that matter, into your bio. Of course there are always going to be weirdos and scammers on every buying/selling apps, but you should be able to weed them out the majority of the time. If you can’t when there’s clear signs (i.e. they won’t answer you back, they’re willing to pay above the asking price, the spam you, say that you can just ship the item to them, or ask you to use another app to communicate) then it’s probably not a good idea for you to be buying and selling. 😂 I understand that letgo can’t pick out every single person who is using the app with ill intentions, but they do actually do a great job at moderating accounts and the items they sell. You set your own prices, but letgo can also price the average amount of the item that you’re selling for you. Personally, I think the app is easy to navigate in a way that it is simple to go on your profile and edit item prices and descriptions and searching for a specific category of item you would like to find. I really enjoy this app and have made multiple sales within the 5 days I’ve had it! If you’re wanting to sell that old vase that you’re tired of looking at or even a car, I highly recommend letgo!! 😁
I have sold quite a few items here after moving, but have never purchased anything. Selling is pretty difficult and can take some time because of the many messages that you get from buyers that aren’t serious. The app is great...if only there were a way to hold prospective buyers accountable for sending “I’m interested” messages. No matter how quickly you reply “Yes, when would you like to take a look?”, many people will not even respond to that. I understand that people change their minds, but if they see the photos, the price, dimensions, location, the fact that they must pick up in a certain location and all other pertinent information that they need to make their decision, how can they change their minds within minutes of a response? I spend way too much time typing out responses letting prospective buyers know when I can meet them, exact location, etc...to hear absolutely nothing back. That’s the only frustrating thing about how this works. Holding buyers accountable by having a system like Home Away would be great! You already have the “verified by” icons. Add another icon that shows their grade as a buyer and as a seller. If the user does not respond to messages in their in box (quickly or at all), they are slowly downgraded. Their grading will show up on their profile. This will help others to decide if they want to reach out to them or not.
Great app. Easy to use. Keeps your info private and I like that it just sets up local sales so you do not have to deal with shipping and just cash. Wish you could send more pictures in a direct message with someone if they ask to see more without having to put them on the whole post, but that’s not a huge deal. Just prefer not to send through my personal email at all if possible. But like not having to use my email for the most part too. That’s wonderful. Love how the map gives an idea of where someone is without specific detail too. Overall a great tool for selling your extra stuff. Have made some extra money, and also gotten a few amazing deals for myself. So it’s a win win in my book! Will continue to use, hopefully even more often as I spring clean 😉 One more thing that would be nice is not getting notifications on every little thing you look at. Just the things you inquired on or put in your favorites. And if someone likes your product it wouldn’t automatically send you a notice coming across like they are truly interested. They really have to message you when they want to make a deal. Can take up some time. But other than those little things I’ve found it fine. And so far everyone I’ve sold too or bought from has been super pleasant and easy to deal with. No one has been rude or jerked mr around. That’s a big plus compared to others selling sites.
