EssayBox.com is a writing service company that appears to have been established in 2013. In keeping with our ongoing efforts to review and evaluate online writing services, we have prepared this Essay Box review so that those who seek writing products and other services may have a clear understanding of the company and its practices. We explored several areas in our investigation – the company website content, the EssayBox testimonials on that website, reviews and comments about the company that have been found in other places on the web, and the result of our order placement for a research paper. The results are contained in the sections that follow.
Essay Box Services
Essay Box advertises itself as primarily an academic writing service, and all of its content is focused in that direction, on essays, papers, and virtually any other academic writing products for students in high school through Ph.D. programs. This includes capstone projects like theses and dissertations. Other academic services include admissions essays, editing/proofreading, and homework assignments. The listing of all academic products is found on the right rail of the home page.
At the very bottom of the home page in very tiny print, however, is listed “other services.” Clicking on that brings up business, professional and copywriting services. These are also listed in the drop-down menu on the order form. Individuals who want any product or service other than academic would have a difficult time knowing that this company offers such services. This leads us to conclude that they may not be fully invested in writing other than academic.
Other services we looked at were related to customer support. The site advertises that the support representatives are available 24 hours a day. However, we placed a call at 6:00 p.m. CST and received a message stating that the party at the extension was not available. We placed another call at 10:00 a.m. the following morning and received the same message. We were able to get a live chat session during the day.
Quality of Products/Writers
We looked for samples of writings, and, although there is a tiny link to that at the bottom of the home page, we found no samples, only offers to buy sample or example essays. We were then unable to locate any way to do that. The rest of the “samples” page appeared to contain blog posts. So, we turned to Essay Box customer reviews that were posted elsewhere on the Internet. The comments we found all stated that products were received on time. Some complained that their instructions were not completely followed and that they had difficulty contacting customer support for revisions. A few others were not fully satisfied with the quality of writing and felt that the resources used were a bit "young” for their academic level. We could find no EssayBox BBB membership, but there were also no filed complaints against the company.
The site advertises that it uses only native English-speaking writers from the U.S., UK and Canada. It does not speak to degrees of writers, only that they are qualified.
The research paper we ordered was at the undergraduate level, in the field of political science. We received the paper on time and found that 2 of the 4 resources used were not from reputable journal publications. As well, there were some structural errors which lead us to believe our writer was not native English-speaking. Otherwise, we found that our instructions were followed in terms of length and formatting. The content could have been improved with better resources.
We can report that Essay Box is not a scam.
Prices and Ways of Payments
EssayBox.com prices are among the highest we have seen in this business. The pricing for a basic high school essay begins at $22.00 page, with a deadline of 15 days or more. Our paper of 8 pages at the undergraduate level was $292.00, much higher than other services we have reviewed.
The company takes all major credit cards plus PayPal and payment methods are secure. The checkout procedure is easy.
Essay Box discounts are explained on a separate link. Once a customer has an accumulation of order page exceeding 15 pages, a 4% discount is given; when that number goes beyond 50, the discount is 8%; and over 100 pages renders a 15% permanent discount. There are also one-time discounts that a customer can choose when to take – 10% for 20-50 pages; 15% for over 50 pages.
We found no Essay Box promo code for first-time customers
EssayBox.com coupon codes are evidently provided periodically, but none was available at the time of our order
No extras are offered
In assessing EssayBox.com pros & cons, we would say that the company delivers on time and its products are of fair quality. Overall, therefore our Essay Box rating is also “Fair.”
