Finding a good academic writer is becoming harder, instead of easier, because of the plethora of companies claiming ad nauseam to be the best essay writing service in the world.
Some are actually good, but it is not easy to know until you’ve actually tried the service. Unfortunately, most clients would rather not find out at the risk of academic disaster, so we have taken it upon ourselves to do the dirty work.
We are tackling Bidfourpapers in this article, and giving you the low down of what to expect when you avail of the service. We curated various online reviews, and tried it out ourselves to weed out genuine testimonials from paid ones.
Bid4papers.com offers the usual academic writing services for all student levels, and they stick to just that.
Some users consider this as good sign, as academic writing requires a specific set of skills not typically needed for other types of writing. The idea is to be the master of one rather than a jack of all trades. However, some find that this needlessly limits the service offerings, and not the best essay writing service approach.
The company offers a plagiarism scan for all projects, which is a bonus. You can also find a writer to edit or proofread your work for you. Unlike other writing services, however, you are not guaranteed free revisions, so be careful when selecting a writer.
The website is uncluttered, well-designed, and very user friendly.
You can find most of what you need on the homepage and just a click away. This includes policies, FAQs, blog, statistics on writing projects, writer profiles, and the order form. You can immediately place a project for bidding with a minimum of fuss, and you can just sit back and relax while waiting for writers to make their offers.
This site is not guaranteed secure, because it does not use an SSL certificate or other forms of site security applications. This can be a problem for security-conscious users. However, the site only requires minimal personal information, and payment is process on third-party sites i.e. PayPal.
The unique thing about this service is that it works more like a job board for freelance writers than a writing service.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, as bidding means you can get a paper done for about $7.50 a page if you’re lucky. However, you do get what you pay for, and according to testimonials, the best writers also charge the highest rates.
We chose the middle bid of $10 for a one-page book review, and set a turnaround time of 5 days. Note that it took three days to get a respectable number of bids, so if you are in a hurry, this may not be the site for you.
Quality of work
A glance at the top writers of the site shows a gallery of writers that claim competence in all subjects, from math to behavioural psychology.
With such a wide range of subjects, we expected the paper to be good, but not excellent. As it turns out, the paper was okay, but did not hit all the marks. We put it down to a failure to communicate with the writer, although the instructions were simple enough.
It was plagiarism-free, which is good, but it was not college level as we requested.
You will have little recourse through the website as you deal directly with your chosen writer, and the company does not offer customer support.
All messages on the account go to the specified writer, and our writer did respond after two days. However, don’t expect the company to intervene on your behalf.
Bid4papers.com is a young service, and reviews are mostly positive, which makes it a possible for inclusion in the best essay writing services list in the future. It is to be hoped that as the company grows, it will address the issues of site security and customer support. Currently, the process has certain weak spots, mostly involving communication with the writers, that some users may find intolerable.
