Paperial.com is one of the more streamlined writing services online. They have a minimal list of services and a private pricing scheme that does not give people much to go on when comparing with other services. You do not have to purchase from them to know how much they charge because they have a calculator on the front page, but you do have to wait for a quote before you can order. Before ordering, we checked the customer reviews and testimonials on other sites, attesting that they do have low rates. To confirm and review, we placed our own order to give you the pros & cons. We also checked to see if they were part of the Better Business Bureau (BBB). We confirm that they are on the database.
Paperial offer three types of services: essays, term papers, and research papers. They offer custom essays and essay help. Editing and proofreading were not listed on their service. They also have a list of writers and samples of the previous work. After checking, none of it was plagiarized. However, the identities of the writers were anonymous. A reverse google search on the images did not yield any identifiable writers or sources either.
We had to wait about 8 hours before someone got back to us, which means that a three-hour rush job would have been impossible because of the lack of customer service available. We ordered a five page research paper covering a biology topic. It took a few hours before they got back to us with a writer. According to their page, writers bid on projects, which may explain the waiting time.
Quality of Products/Writers
The research paper was well done and was submitted on time. We found a few minor errors and asked for editing services. Again, we had to wait a few hours before we received a response. The customer service representative at Paperial told us that they would process our request. We received the paper the next day. If it had been due then, we would have been very disappointed and felt cheated as if we were victims of a fraud or scam.
We also checked and the paper was not plagiarized at all. The hits were merely quotes from existing text online, which we provided as our source. The composition did not overly rely on the quotes and we saw that they used their own words and analysis for the research paper we ordered.
Prices and Ways of Payment
In terms of prices, it is true that Paperial offers low rates, but no lower than the average writing service. Our paper was adequately priced and we did not feel as if we were cheated in terms of quality and content.
They accept Paypal and commonly used credit cards like MasterCard, Visa and Amex, but we preferred to use PayPal for security purposes. According to their FAQ, they would put the money in escrow. However, they failed to provide any details on how that would work. We only used PayPal because we knew we could request a full refund if a dispute claim was made.
There was no promised discount like we read on other review sites. This leads us to believe that someone may be writing fake reviews about Paperial. We also did not find any coupon codes or promo codes on their site or other sites.
Even with the low rates, it is not ideal for bulk orders. We cannot confirm whether or not they will offer those services because the customer service representative did not give us a response for that question. They only processed our order and worked with us during the time the essay was being written.
The site is very minimal in a sense that what you see is what you get. They have no other offers. They are not very wordy on their copies and you will not find any surprises no matter how long you explore the site. We were surprised at the free editing we got, but we do not expect that they would offer the same thing twice.
We are giving Paperial.com a rating of 5 over 10. We were not happy about the turnaround time for requests, which means that it is not a suitable service for students who are pressed for time. The lack of services and extra treats also gives us room for pause because they are outsourcing writers, which gives the sense that they cannot go lower than the rates they offer. This is not a feasible solution for students who need a rush job and have a huge order.
