We do not know a great deal about BuyEssayFriend.com. Its website does not speak to the length of time it has been in business. A few visitors to our site have come looking for a review on Buy Essay Friend, though, not based upon our concerns but based upon their issues with the company.
We have completed our review based on the same criteria we use when rating the best websites for essay writing. These include the information and the quality of the information that is housed on the EssayFriend website – explanation of products and services, testimonials, samples, blog posts, customer reviews we are able to find on the web, pricing, benefits and guarantees, and our own evaluation of a research paper we always order.
Here is all that we have been able to find:
Factor 1: Type of Writing Services Offered
BuyEssayFriend.com offers academic writing exclusively. It advertises products and services to students from secondary levels through doctoral programs. From basic five-paragraph essays, to research papers, to dissertations, the company claims to have the degreed native English-English speaking writers. Beyond the basic academic products, students can order editing, proofreading, tough STEM homework assignments, multiple-choice test-taking, and admissions essays.
Factor 2: Trust and Reliability
We like to see a company that delivers what it promises, that provides guarantees to its customers, that has safe and secure protection of personal and financial information, and that tells the truth. Here is what we found about Buy Essay Friend:
- Based upon customer comments and our own experience, the company does take orders, secures payment, and delivers products on time
- The company follows the instructions and specifications of its customers as best it can
- Unfortunately, the company is not totally honest about who is writing the products that are ordered. It claims to use only native English-speakers with degrees. Just reading the website content and reviewing the samples of writing it has published on its site, this is clearly not the case. Run-on sentences, incorrect word usage, and spelling errors are throughout.
- Samples have no organizational structure, not definitive introductions or thesis statements.
- One of the featured writer’s own statement about his background and experience is filled with grammatical errors.
Factor 3: Level of Quality
Quality is just not there. From customer feedback and from our own experience, finished products are not in formal, correct English composition and will not meet the expectations of instructors and professors.
Our experience with customer service also raised lots of red flags. Top Writers Review experts asked specifically how quickly we could get a full 200-page doctoral dissertation produced and were told within days. We then pressed about the need for original research and were told that the Ph.D. researcher/writer assigned would handle all of that. We simply needed to place our order, arrange for payment, and it would be done. It would take a miracle for this to happen.
Factor 4: Pricing and Payment
BuyEssayFriend prices are low-average. A secondary student can get a basic essay for $9.97/page with a 14-day deadline. Doctoral work with an urgent deadline will cost $56/page. Admissions essays run from $41 - $197/page, dependent upon deadline requirements. There are separate pricing charts for editing, multiple-choice test-taking, and homework assignments.
Discounts range from 5 – 10% depending on total amount spent on cumulative orders. We did not find a first-time buyer discount nor a promo code for this. Customers are promised additional discounts if they subscribe to emails.
Payments are through any major credit card and PayPal and are processed by an SSL-certified third-party.
Factor 5: Additional Important Considerations
Nothing is free at Buy Essay Friend.
While the company guarantees no plagiarism, customers must pay for a plagiarism report, by the page.
Even a table of contents comes with an extra charge.
Other fee-based extras include such things as VIP treatment, with an assigned customer service agent who will stay “on top of” the progress.
We look at pros & cons objectively, and, in the case of Buy Essay Friend, the cons far outweigh any pros we can list. The quality of writing is poor; the company is not fully honest; and it charges for every little extra. While the pricing is relatively cheap, we urge students to look elsewhere for higher quality. Our rating of this company is “poor.”
