Letgo Review: Is It Safe & Easy to Buy & Sell Used Stuff with This App?

Today, we’re going to review the rather new (ish) Letgo app. It’s an app that lets you buy and sell virtually anything quickly, easily and locally.

When it comes to selling stuff, there is no shortage of apps and websites one can use. Unfortunately, most of them don’t do you any good.

I really enjoyed Letgo’s TV ads (especially the “jump” one where the lady sells her old sewing machine while sky diving), so I wanted to see what it was all about, and whether it is any better than the rest. 

With Letgo, you can make money from the stuff you no longer use – whether that’s an unused coffee table or unwanted books.

You can also get your hands on some great products for bargain prices in your local area.

Letgo is similar to Craigslist except it’s solely an app, so you can’t use it on a desktop like you can Craigslist.

If you’ve got some unwanted stuff lying around the house, sell ’em through Letgo may be a good option to make some money.

How does Letgo work?

Letgo works like a mobile classifieds, where people can buy and sell stuff, quickly and easily. It’s aimed at people looking to buy and sell locally.

They currently operate in a dozen or so countries but the strongest market for now are the United States and Canada.


Selling an item through Letgo is super simple. Through the app, you can snap photos, list items to sell and chat with potential buyers. It takes seconds to post an item for sale, and the app gives you the ability to chat with potential buyers instantly.

Here’s a little more information on exactly how Letgo works….

Getting started

As we said above, using Letgo is really easy.

All you need to do is:

  • Download the app on your phone. You can get it for Android and iOS devices, handily enough.
  • Register for an account with Letgo. All you need to do to sign up is enter a valid email address, create a password and ad a photo.
  • Now, you’ve got your account and you’re ready to buy and sell!

Navigating the platform

It’s is a fairly simple app to navigate. On the main page of the app, you’ll see items that other users have listed for sale. You’ll also see a search bar that you can use to hunt for items.

From the homepage, you can view categories, like “movies, books & music” and “electronics” as well. It’s a good idea to take a look through them, so that you can see where the items you want to sell should be listed and to see what things other people are selling.

The Letgo app has a top cities and top state section you can look through too.

If you want to sell something, then all you need to do is click on the “sell your stuff” option, and from there, you can snap photos and chat with other users once your listing is live.
