I thought I knew the essay industry and its players inside out but I was wrong. Recently, I’ve got to know 99papers.com writing company by chance and was amazed at the fact that many students have been using this service for some time already. There’s no information whether it’s an American, British or Australian custom writing service but on their Trustpilot page stated they are a Chicago based company. Upon having a closer look at the information I can only guess the company offers services mainly for the US and UK students. In this 99papers review, I’ll try to dot the i’s and cross the t’s and find out if 99papers is a reliable and trustworthy service you can delegate your assignment to. Let’s get started.
The company provides writing and editing help with a number of academic assignments:
The list of services can go on and on. More detailed information you'll find on their website.
The name of the company as though gives a hint at its prices. Prices at 99papers begin at $9.99 per page for writing from scratch with 15+ days deadline, High School level. The same paper but with a 6-hour deadline will cost you $26.25 per page. If you’re an undergraduate student, the minimum starting price for an essay will be around $13 per page and the maximum can go up as high as $35 per page (a 3-hour deadline). Prices for graduate and postgraduate assignments start at $21 and $25 per page respectively. Editing and Proofreading cost far less and you can get your paper edited/proofread for as low as $4.5 per page. There are also 99papers discounts and promo codes available. All new customers are entitled to a 5% percent discount for the first order. However, I managed to find a promo code which slices your price at %. Apply this promo code to get a % discount.
To answer this question I first headed to my favorite place - Reddit. I googled “99papers reddit” but unfortunately I didn’t find anything meaningful there.
But I discovered a lot of information about 99papers on another social forum - Quora.
There was a mention about 99papers almost in every Quora branch devoted to essay writing and essay companies. Be aware as these posts are promotional ones and do not prove the company’s good reputation. Though redditors let me down, I didn’t stop my investigation. Thanks God, TrustPilot and SiteJabber were crammed with reviews.
According to customer feedback given on SiteJabber, the clients are more than happy. Of course, there are a few unsatisfied as it always happens.As for TrustPilot, the situation was almost the same:
Having carefully read the reviews, especially negative ones, the main complaints were misunderstanding between the client and writer. I didn’t find any accusations of 99papers plagiarism or other serious cases. Judging by these reviews I can assume that 99papers is a legit writing company.
You can contact 99papers through various means: live chat, phone, email, or messenger on their FB page. I decided to talk to a support via a live chat option on the site. To start a chat, you have to fill out two fields (your name and email). I talked to support Abby, her answer was swift (it took less than 20 seconds for Abby to answer). I asked her some general questions regarding the service and confidentiality.
One interesting thing, when I asked her about their writers, she replied they were all native speakers.
Though information given on the website says that they employ ESL writers as well.
There's nothing wrong with fluent ESL writers but I think it's important to tell clients their paper may be written by the ESl writers. Maybe Abby doesn't know everything about their writers or just she's a newbie and hasn't learned everything about the company's operations yet. Overall, I liked 99papers support department and have nothing to complain about (except for that little writers' mismatch).
To answer this question, we have to carefully study 99papers.com refund policy. It can be found in the site footer.
Having read their refund policy, I still had some questions as it seemed to be written in vague terms for me. There's no single case where it's said how much percent exactly you will get back. They say you're entitled to a full refund if a double payment has been made or two identical orders have been placed.
They also promise a full refund if they were late. But there are too many inclusions which can be a reason for not reimbursing the full amount you paid for the paper. One thing I disliked the most in the money back policy is how it's written. Under each case they try to assure you this situation won't happen and there's nothing to worry about. But I don't need any assurances, I just want to see clear cases in which I will or will not have my money back.
For me, the order steps seem a little messy.
Too many different tabs and options to choose from. I think it could be optimized for better user experience. Though the order form may seem a bit complicated, it doesn't take too long to fill out all the fields and go to the second step. Once you're finished with the 1st step, you have to provide your order details.
At the second step, you have to specify the format, number of pages, write or upload assignment instructions and title your paper. That's it, you're almost done. The final step is to pay for your order. Once, the payment is made, congratulations, now you can put up your feet and wait till the writer sends you a ready copy of your assignment.
Here comes the most interesting part of this 99papers review. I decided to delegate my 7-page long case study for my business class. The writer was presented with a certain situation and had to work out a game plan supposing he was a manager who faced the certain work situation. Besides, the writer was to apply concepts and theories we studied in class. Though, it wasn't a big project, he had to do a lot of preliminary research before getting down to actual work. I had a lot of time and took a 15+ days deadline option. It costed me $63, not much indeed, taking into account how much troubles I would go through and my energy I would spend on this assignment.
The paper came 5 days prior to the initial deadline. I must acknowledge the case study was really well written (there was 1 source formatted incorrectly, that's it). When I read it, I breathed a sigh of relief. If even the thought of writing an assignment makes you sick, don't hesitate to seek help from these guys.
99papers.com offers a few extra features at additional price for its clients. The extra features include the writer level: Top or ENL writer (it's a bit confusing as you don't know whether the best available and Top writers are native speakers). For a Top writer you'll be charged additional $ 7.59 per each page, for a ENL writer be ready to shell out additional $8.45 per each page. Other extra features are Plagiarism report - $9.49, Editor's check - $33.18, Copy of sources - $15.19.
No matter how hazy their money back policy was, I did enjoyed the quality of the paper I received. Good website design and helpful support agents are also a advantage to choosing this service. Should I have to use a writing company in the future, I'm 100% sure I'll use this company again.
