Paperhelp is the website of a custom essay service. In this paperhelp.org review, you will learn about their website, features and services, pricing system, as well as the quality and reputation of the service.
But, first things first. Your first question about any online company is always the same. Is paperhelp legal and legit? Thankfully, the company is both. Every writing company is legal since there’s no law against paying for paper help. It is legit in the sense that it delivers the products students pay for.
How well it does this and what it offers as services, you are about to find out in this paperhelp review.
Paper Help Services
The ‘Essay services’ page on the top of the website’s pages doesn’t provide a full list. To see the full list of services at PaperHelp, you should use their calculator on the homepage. There you can see a dropdown menu that contains services organized in the following categories:
- Homework help
- Questions and problems
Such categorization sounds too general and limited. But, this company actually has a big list of services. For example, the ‘Essays’ category contains essays and research papers, but also some assignments that aren’t usually characterized as essays. These assignments include exam notes, presentations, lab reports, and capstone projects. Moreover, the ‘questions and problems’ category includes an editing and proofreading service, which has nothing to do with this categorization.
Despite the unusual organization of services, the company has a rich selection of papers they offer.
The prices are the most attractive part about the service and are praised as such in most paperhelp reviews we read. But, since they are too good to be true, we had our doubts about the quality the company delivers. They actually have essays for a price of $12 for a page for high school students, $14 for college students, $20 for university students, and only $24 for university students.
These prices are too low to equal great quality since good writers don’t usually work for such rates. They grow gradually based on level and deadline, but the company remains very cheap even with the shortest deadline option. For example, a PhD essay can be bought at only $34 per page within a single day deadline!
This sounded very strange to us, which is why we researched some more. We thought that there might be some additional expenses that will increase the quotes. But, they actually have discounts to reduce it further.
Despite these low rates, paperhelp reviews are mostly bad and speak of plagiarism or poor quality. This confirmed the doubts we had about their writers.
Paperhelp.org Discounts Policy
There’s an entire discount program explained on the homepage. The only paperhelp discount code is available on your birthday, while you’ll also get emails with codes for special offers they give on holidays. If you are a new customer, you can get 5% or 10% discount. We didn’t get this paperhelp discount because our order did not exceed $500, which is the requirement to get the lower of these two discounts. To get 10% on the first order, you must spend $1000.
Paperhelp also has a loyalty program that, according to the site, gives approximately a 10% bonus on every new order. This isn’t discussed anywhere else on the website or in testimonials, so it remains a mystery. When we asked an agent about it, he informed us that we can ask for a discount when we plan to place our next orders.
There are plenty of additional services that include:
VIP customer support ($14.99),
Plagiarism Report ($9.99),
Preferred Writer Category ($14.99),
Abstract page ($14.99),
Sources used ($4.99),
Table of contents ($9.99),
Editor’s check ($14.99),
Some of these features are understandably priced, but others are very strange. For example, what kind of company charges extra for sources used? Without providing this information, the essay is basically plagiarized. Most writing companies ask for a citation style when you place an order and use it to list the sources they use in writing. Having to pay extra for this only confirms that the company might be delivering plagiarized papers.
Another important feature is the support service. Despite the many promises of it being always available, we had our troubles finding a real agent to speak to. We spoke to a digital bot who answered our discount-related questions automatically.
In summary, paperhelp.org is legal and legit, but not a good choice. Some of the reasons why we make this claim are the following findings:
- Services are poorly categorized
- Customer service is basically non-existent
- The loyalty program is mentioned, but no information is provided
- First-time discounts are hard to reach
- Quality and reputation are extremely low
