Table of Contents
We are not certain how long Writersperhour.com has been in business, but we are assuming about two years, given that there are samples and blog posts that go back that far. Also, we have been able to find comments and customer reviews on the web that go back that far as well.
In putting together this Writers per Hour review, we looked at several factors, including the content quality of the information on the website, posted testimonials, pricing, benefits, quality of sample and blog post writing, and the responsiveness of customer support. In addition, we ordered a college research paper and evaluated the process and final product.
While the home page states that the company offers academic and business writing, we did not find any business writing options in the drop-down menu on the order form. We are assuming that only academic work is offered.
That said, Writers per Hour offers the full gamut of academic writing for students from high school through Ph.D. programs. Editing, proofreading, and admissions essays are also options.
Writersperhour.com prices begin at a standard price of $12.99 for a high school piece, which is about average for the industry. From there, however, ricing goes up at a higher rate. College and grad students pay more than most other services charge, up to $80.99/page for a Ph.D. level piece with an urgent deadline.
The paper we ordered, 8 pages with a 5-day deadline, was priced at $191.92, which is well above average.
Discounts and Additional Benefits
There is no established discount plan. We were offered a promo code for a 15% discount as a new customer and were told by customer support that coupon codes are offered for lengthy assignments, if customers request them.
In terms of benefits, the normal free pages are provided, along with a guarantee of no plagiarism and free revisions and formatting in any style. These are standard for the industry.
Customer Support and Site Usability
The site loads quickly and is easy to navigate, with links to pages listed at the top. The ordering process is straightforward, and payment is handled by a third-party processor. We had no concerns about the security of payment method.
Customer support is a bit disappointing. We spoke with two agents who were obviously foreign, and it was difficult to understand them. We suspect that an answering service is being used, because we were not able to get detailed answers to our questions. At one point, we were told that a full Ph.D. dissertation of 150 pages could be produced in 48 hours for a price of $5,438.64 – ridiculous.
We also asked about a BBB membership, and the agent had no idea what this organization was.
Here is where the “rubber meets the road.” WritersperHour states that all writers have Master’s or Ph.D. degrees and years of academic writing experience. If the sample and the blog posts are any indication, we cannot imagine where these degrees have come from, perhaps foreign universities. These articles/essays contain a host of grammatical errors, fragments, run-ons, awkward phrasing and incorrect word usage. One sample we read, a travel essay, would have been suitable for an elementary school assignment.
Customer reviews on the web are not complimentary either. The paper we received was poorly structured, contained no thesis statement, and was filled with composition errors and wrong word usage.
In general, research and writing quality is poor.
We cannot say that WritersperHour is a fraud or scam. However, in looking at pros & cons, we can find no “pros.” We would advise students to look for the best essay writers somewhere else, and are assigning a rating of “Very poor.”
