‘Just’ $23.75 per page is not a low price, and this is the lowest you can get at edubirdie.com. In fact, until the point when you choose a writer who is willing to work on your order within the deadline, this is the only price tip you can get. This is a bidding company – which makes the writing of our edubirdie review that much harder and incomplete.
If you have been looking at the market before this, you have surely encountered one of the bidding services. To sum up, bidding companies do not select the writer, but allow you to do this by checking bidders’ offers. It is time-consuming and very interesting, but also comes with plenty of risks.
Whether edubirdie.com is up to the challenge of ensuring the writers’ quality, you are about to find out.
List of Services
The list of services is literally infinite. There is no limit as to what you can offer and within which deadline, but there is also no guarantee that you will get bidders on your order. Still, the large database of writers usually results in at least a dozen bids in the first hour after you make an order.
So, even though you can order within hours only, the process of waiting for bidders and choosing one will make you lose some valuable time, too. If you want to be sure that the bidder is the right person for the job, this will probably take even more time, especially because in some cases, over twenty bidders choose to place their bid on a single order.
This is followed by the process of checking bidders’ profiles and feedback, all while considering your budget and needs. Many bidding services are the primary choice of students who are on a very limited budget, but seeing that this one has a set starting price that is not so cheap to start with, it is not really a service you can use to get a cheap paper.
Pricing, Discounts & Payment Policy
We were very surprised to learn that the lowest rate if $23.75 for a page. This is a solid price, but not for a bidding company. If the pricing was fixed, $23.75 would be acceptable in case discounts were applicable, but with a bidding service, this makes for a huge problem for the customer.
Because if $23.75 is the starting rate, the better writers on the site will bid with higher rates. So, the company can be considered one of the highly-priced services for those who want to select a good writer and still, there is no guarantee on behalf of the service that they will make the right choice.
For such a high and non-fixed fee, it is unacceptable to ask the customer to spend hours checking writers’ bids and choosing the most eloquent writer. And without any loyalty program or discount of any kind, the starting price is high to begin with.
We fear that our quality evaluation is not a realistic indicator as to what you can expect, because almost every case with the service is different. Basically, your paper quality will depend on the choice you will make for a writer, how long you will check writers’ portfolios, and how much you are willing to pay.
However, even though we cannot tell you what your experience will be, we can tell you that the portfolios on this site are not to be trusted. We selected a bidder with what we consider to be a very high bid. We chose this bidder for our essay because his portfolio was the best out of those who bid on our order.
And yet, the quality was below our expectations. The paper was solid, but far from worth the price we paid. The writer managed to add a whole page with content that was based on very unreliable source, and some parts of the essay did not even relate to the topic we gave him.
When most of the job is left to the customer, a support service should be there to assist them in case something goes wrong. We did not believe we are entitled to a refund because the writer met the deadline and followed most of our requirements, but we did expect free revisions.
Unfortunately, the customer support agent managed to provide us with a revision, but 48 hours later. When we sent out our request for a free revision and explained our issue, the agent responded promptly and in a very pleasant manner. However, he could not reach the writer for two whole days, and did not offer to send our paper to someone else for a revision.
Finally, we got a revised paper that cost us nothing, but the revision was so poorly made, we believe the quality was worse, not better.
