Essay.ws has been around a long time – 12 years to be exact. And so, when we were asked by some of our users to conduct an Essay.WS review, we had no problem finding plenty of information, feedback, and comments. In addition to customer reviews, we reviewed all of the website content, looked at company-posted testimonials, checked out information they supplied about their writers, looked at sample essays and papers, and reviewed prices and benefits. We also ordered a college research paper to assess product quality.
While Essay.ws focuses on academic writing for students from high school on up through graduate programs, it also offers editing and proofreading, PowerPoint presentations, and some types of business writing. Students especially can find help with almost any type of writing assignments, through Ph.D. dissertations.
Essay ws prices are within the normal range for academic writing services, and there is a schedule of pricing published on the site. Students can tabulate their order in advance before placing an order. Prices range from $10.99/page for a high school piece through $49.99/page at the doctoral level and beyond. Our 8-page paper with a 7-day deaden was $135.92.
Discounts and Additional Features
There is a place on the order form to insert coupon codes for discounts, but we were not able to find any discount program on the site. We left a message to ask about discounts and finally received an answer. Evidently, customers with large orders can request a discount and get a promo code for the order form. But, we wonder how anyone would know to do this?
In terms of additional features, we did not find anything outstanding. There are free pages that most other services offer, along with free revisions and guarantees of privacy and no plagiarism. These are all standard.
Customer Support and Site Usability
While the company publishes a physical address, there is no phone number, nor could we find one from our research. Add to that the fact that there is no live chat feature and only the ability to leave a message for a response, and we have some concerns. Customers cannot get immediate answers, especially if they have urgent needs.
The Essay WS website is easy to navigate with links at the top of the homepage. We could not find any written policies, and that concerns us too. A company that has been in business this long should have written policies.
Here is the crux of the matter. The company states that all of its writers have Master’s degrees or higher and three years of writing experience. We wonder about these claims for the following reasons:
The content on the website is written poorly – bad English composition and incorrect word usage.
The sample writing from these supposed high-quality writers are absolutely horrible. The three we reviewed had no paragraph breaks, no transitions, no thesis statements, and grammar errors were all over the place.
The research paper we received was just as bad as the samples we reviewed. We did not know even where to begin in asking for revisions.
Here is what we can say. Essay.ws is not a fraud or scam. But, the product quality is so poor, students will be wasting their money in using this site. We also could not find a BBB membership. For a company supposedly located in the U.S. for as long as it has been in business, this is a big red flag.
Students should avoid this company. When we looked at pros & cons, we simply cannot find any pros. There is no direct communication, products are of poor quality, and writers are not highly qualified. Our rating of Essay.WS is “very poor.”
