    I don’t really care about this rate thing to be honest, mad people are everywhere and if they want to do bad on you they will, no matter how many good points you already have.
    People will buy from you if they like your item and if they thing it has a good price no matter what .
    I had to deal In 2 or 3 times with flake scammers , but this is not 5 mies fault and i had to learn how to protect myself.
    So far I am having the best experience using 5 miles to sale and buy stuff and I like it so much .

    Rating system sucks and so does 5 mile support for the seller.

    Please explain the "Boosting". If I boost something, does it go to the TOP? If not, why not? Thought that was the purpose of "BOOST" to get it back to the top and get my item sold!!!!

    5 miles? What 5 miles outta my way? Read your message system you should be made to otherwise the people who start problems like the one I paid for a high dollar sewing machine that was packed upside down with nothing on box stating up ..this end up not any sine age whatsoever and it was received broken. After I paid he has been so rude . You people have a system that's saves all correspondence , teach your people to use it. READ THE CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN SELLERS AND BUYERS ONLY THEN WILL YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH HONESTY GOES THROUGH YOUR SYSTEM. This man should be barred. From here. But instead I'll quit. That's not smart keep a rude dishonest seller and watch a honest cash paying buyer walk???

    The new rating system is not fair...I've been working really hard to build my page...And it seems as though all the sellers that been on 5 miles the longest will automatically have a higher rate!!!!!!!!! And you can't go higher without reviews, I've sold several things and the buyer did not review it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go back to the old rating system. It was fine, if it ain't broke don't fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like the 5 star ratings system. It allows the customer to see if this person is rated as average or excellent. Also, I rated flaky and/ or abusive customers and they retaliated against me with a bunch of lies in a fake ratings. There lies brought my score down. One of them blocked me from responding to his lies. There are two side to the story and only one truth. I prefer to sell sports items in a more controlled atmosphere with mature people.. I have noticed that the sporty males are very abusive and enjoy attacking your wallet and time. I will be more careful with the sporty male crowd. They think about being powerful and dominant more that fair and respectful. They act like they are on the other team scoring points on you, while you are selling them a fair price and fair use of time. These abusive sporty males are bad fruit from idolizing competition. Greed and abuse of others is bad fruit.

    Kathy, I don't know why you think... So many of the things that you think. 😂

    The issues we take with the rating system are as compared to the previous 5 star rating system.  

    You don't care about someone else's rating. Um.  Okay.. well, we do.  Without leveling up like a video game, we care about our overall standing.  In terms of stars, not smiley faces.  Stars offer a clearer picture.  We don't need levels and smiley faces and percentages to tell us what 5stars did so well.

    You much prefer to be able to read what others have said and also the buyer/seller response.  That didn't change.

    Buyers reviews are all visible but count for one. Reason is because too many people made too many fake reviews and some bought reviews. This system isnt hurting anyone but is in all actuallity protecting against the scammers and theives that would make the fake reviews which brought them the victims they needed to do what ever they do. These scamers also looked at your much valued 5star ratings as targets. 5 stars ment that 1) You care only about pleasing the customer so if they wanted they could befriend you making a close buyer seller relationship learning all they can about you. 2) More than likely once they learn yoir normal products and meeting points now they are averaging your earnings and really looking at your high and low sales. 3) They flake on you. Then rearange flake again maybe or instead of simply flaking they come at you rushing the sale for whatever reason more than likely right after they know a big ticket item sold. Anyways the point is that reviews sewm like one thing to you but sadly its behind the scenes that some one else is looking at them another. No system is better or worse but one is safer than the other. Anyways. Its a safe bet that none of you even thought of it being for saftey and i could be wrong but lets not worry about that and be grateful some one is worrying about it for you.

    I have always tried to be the best that I can be. And 5 Miles gave me a sense of accomplishment with the 5 Star Ratings System.
    But the New Rating System is a Total Joke to all those Who Started with 5 Miles just like myself, and We all feel that We have been Sold Out. Well 5 Miles, I don't take to kindly when all my Hard Work is thrown Out the window and my Concerns are Ignored like rotten politicians. So, unless We go back to the Way it was. Or I'm Definitely Deleting YOU and moving on to something better than 5 Miles.

    So its obvious we have all been ignored, it doesnt matter what we want or think, they just want you to think that your important by asking for your feedback which means D%$k. Everyone has asked to change the rating system back to old one, 5mile staff just laughing at us.

    This app is garbage. The only reason I have not stopped and I keep posting smaller items here is because I have a good following of repeat buyers. If it wasn’t for them I’d definitely delete this. Fix the sales methods!!!

    Okay question say John Doe bys 8 different items from me and he goes in and rates me 8 different times he gives me the best rating on the first seven now he's tired of fill in the mouth so he just hits a couple things says thank you and rates it why is it only the last rating from a person who possibly bought more than one item from me but gave me 8 different ratings one for each item? Why do I lose so many points in this scale then on the selling or 8 items?
    Now John Doe comes back he sees we're going to make it simple and umbrella it's a light green and he's been looking for a light green umbrella for years now he knows he gave me stop but the picture looks like what he wants Mike description says umbrella is a light green but please there is a difference between the picture and the color of the umbrella. So he gets the umbrella John Doe now he's upset and he marks shipping sent on time Danny puts down poor, and he writes wow the color is not the color that's close to the picture of his I'm not happy with this now they didn't get ahold of me to try to resolve it he just left a message and very bad 1 now my question is do I lose the points I've already ate items that I sold because now this one is his last raining and even one that was the eight rating showed me being great everything was check Bart good I wanted to thank you this one says unhappy with their new b**** more they compare thousands of plans from National Insurance unit not sell it as described I am not happy I get a bad rating now do I lose all my points that I've gotten on his previous sale I lost 7 already do I lose the eighth one and now I get a lousy one and my point scale goes down instead of up?

    A rating and a comment should be left only when someone buys an item and not just because we don't reply back to a message. I recently got a bad review for not relying back. I don't always have the time to reply back or I usually don't get my notifications from this app.

    I've been with five miles for quite a while never did sell much and find mostly people just playing games saying they want to buy something and then back out. I don't use this much anymore that's one reason plus with the new rating system is why I rarely even come on here anymore. Sharon

    Thank you Lorie! Yes you are right, they don't care about the comments we're posting. They haven't acknowledged a single 1. Plus I have a comment from 3 weeks ago that they haven't even posted--its says Pending Approval. Nice right. Apparently they don't post all comments. I completely agree with what you said about all the businesses on here, it's out of control. But nothing is done, nothing is done about anything important to the users. Thanks for being someone else that's stating the obvious but they're oblivious to!!! I have 67 perfect ratings and I'm only getting credit for 19 of them cuz apparently its a bad thing to have return customers or people that buy more than 1 thing. I should be a level 7 buy only a 5 cuz of this. The system is ridiculous. And for me as well-i rarely sell anything on this app, most on Offer Up amd Letgo. Starting to wonder if they are wanting this app to fail cuz they are definitely pushing us away. Haven't even bothered to list anything here since the change happened.

    I stumbled onto to this blog board by accident while looking for the value the level system actually finds additional worth to over 5 stars. First , as a seller and a buyer, I know from 60 yrs of sales and marketing, I got about 15 seconds to plant a seed in a buyers brain, if I'm lucky. If I get them to stay another 10 Seconds with photo , wording, price , I may have a chance to sell item out of their need, impulse or curiosity buy habit and have contact. The odds weigh against the seller out of the gate, why not give an edge that "works" A new buyer is critical, as is your photo and most likely will take a glance at a star rate , one that has universal meaning and readily available that may be deciding factor to sway the buyer to at min "this may be worth it,at least inquiry, no loss no gain" mindset but may not search meanings to a value system, such of what you have implemented here. Your strategy is in error in today's hustle world, your over thinking the process and too close to epicenter to make this decision whom ever is in charge of Web media, keep it simple stupid as my dad would say, time is of essance. Secondly, if I were a review person thinking of joining your site and read only the first page of disatisfied sellers here whom now have no incentive to maintain a courtesy , be on time , clean product selling enviroment...
    Well let's be civil about your error that's bit hard enough already....time......time... to go " let go" and "offer up" my goods somewhere that understands my view and basic statistics to sales! Good luck !
