There are lots of custom writing companies out there, but choosing the one that can deliver high-quality papers can be a real challenge. Your hard-earned money should be going towards creative and informative content that gets you better grades.
When you are a college student the piles of homework can really add up fast. When you also factor in the importance of finding time to spend time with friends, it seems there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. Fortunately, there are plenty of top-notch custom writing companies that can give you a helping hand. On the other hand, students often discover that when it comes to selecting the right company, they end up choosing poorly. But short of ordering papers from every single custom writing service until you stumble across a good one, there are not a lot of viable options. But thanks to our series of unbiased reviews, you no longer have to take a gamble and hope for the best. We take a look at the various companies’ price policies, discounts, the quality of the paper that we order from them, and the competencies of their customer support team so that you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you.
In this review, we are taking a look at EssayPro.com. Our first impression when we saw their websites was “Well, they do not seem to provide a lot of services.” But as we eventually discovered, this could not have been farther from the truth. They offer three primary services: academic writing, rewriting and editing, and can handle any order regardless of the topic or academic level. They work on a bidding system and have writers who can handle virtually any type of paper. While there are no guarantees that the writers will bid on your order, that could be said of every company regardless as to whether they use a bidding system or not.
As we do in all of our reviews, we requested a high school-level paper on the topic of US history. We asked that it be 5 pages long (double-spaced) and gave the writer a 7-day deadline. Because the paper was on a topic that we believe any capable American writer should be able to handle, we specifically asked for one. The instant that we placed our order, we received a lot of bids. However, a lot of the messages from the writers contained odd grammar mistakes and word choices that are not consistent with what an American would write. In any event, we waited a while for the bids to come in before choosing a writer who looked like they might be up to the task.
Prices, Discounts, Payments
At EssayPro.com, there is no pricing policy. We suppose this makes sense as the company operates on a bidding system. In theory, this should give the customer the freedom to pay the price they want. However, you should always be wary of choosing the writer who offers the lowest bid since they are not likely to be as good as the writers who offer higher bids. In fact, we noticed that most of the inexperienced writers were indeed the ones who were placing the lowest bids. Based on the bids we received (ranging from $60 up to $75), the average price was around $11/per page, which is consistent with what companies that do not operate on a bidding system also charge. We opted for a writer who bid $70. Her name was Sylvia, although her profile picture was fake.
One of the major disadvantages of their bidding system is that it obviously does not allow for anytime of discount program. So customers looking to get a few dollars shaved off their first-order will be disappointed. Likewise, if you like customer loyalty discount programs, you probably will not have a lot of incentive to choose EssayPro.com. We strongly believe that companies should want to demonstrate their appreciation to their long-term customers.
Quality of Papers
We got our paper by the deadline and it did not contain any plagiarism. Both those are the only two positive things we can report about the order. Sylvia (or whoever it was) was definitely not an American writer even though we had specifically asked for one and even though her profile claimed that she was. We thought that a high school-level history paper should have been a piece of cake, but the writer really struggled. Aside from several obvious grammar mistakes, the paper was really uninspired. It contained a lot of bland, repetitive language. The writer was clearly just trying to reach the 5-page requirement and be done with it. In fact, they did not even include a proper conclusion. Quite frankly, there was no point in requesting revisions since the entire paper was bad enough to require a re-do.
The customer support department can only be contacted by live chat. We believe a reputable company should have a phone option especially since there urgent situations in which it would be nice to speak to an agent. Since we were not satisfied with the paper, we wanted to check and see if we could coax them into a refund. They tried to talk us out of it by offering revisions, but as we noted it was not the type of paper that could be improved with a few sentence changes; it would have needed a complete overhaul. In the end we did manage to get our refund. Our payment was credited to our account in a week.
As we write our reviews, we try to use a balanced approach in which we highlight the good and bad. But in this particular case, we really struggled to find positive things to say about EssayPro.com. We take issue with their deceptive practices. If they were going to promise a native-English speaker, they needed to hold up their end of the bargain. We hesitate to write that we “appreciate” getting a refund since it was something we were clearly entitled. Could you luck out and receive a better writer? Perhaps. But we do not think it is worth the risk considering there are so many other services that have been proven to be reliable. We do not recommend EssayPro.com.
