5miles introduces donate section

Mobile marketplace app 5miles has introduced new features for Android and iOS devices to better engage its budding community of more than six million buyers and sellers nationwide, the company said.

Dallas-based 5miles is the first mobile marketplace to introduce a distinct services offering, which it now is enhancing with in-app appointment booking.

The new appointment feature will allow users to communicate with a service provider or other seller about mutual availability, and then schedule an appointment through the 5miles app. Both parties will receive an automatic calendar notification on their mobile devices, complete with details such as the appointment date, time, location, pricing, and service provider/seller contact information. A reminder notification also gets generated automatically.

5miles launched in Dallas in January 2015. It is a hyper-local mobile marketplace app that includes services, housing and jobs, in addition to second-hand trading.
