Poorly designed website, confusing order form, and the lack of Paypal payment option were nearly enough to dissuade me from getting a paper from Essayonlinestore. The website copyright label hasn’t been updated since 2017, and at the very bottom of Terms and Conditions, it says the website belongs to Writeperfect LTD based in Cyprus. These are just a couple of fast facts you should know about this company. Is Essayonlinestore scam? Read on to learn the answer.
Essayonlinestore specializes in academic writing and promises to help students of all levels, from high school to Ph.D. programs, to write essays, research papers, case studies, and coursework. I could only hope the people responsible for some texts on their website were not the same who wrote academic papers. The promise that the company “hasn’t got such a promiscuous team” was enough to send me into peals of hysterical laughter.
I had to play around with the online calculator a bit to get a better idea of Essayonlinestore prices. They start at $14.91 per page for high schoolers and go up to $26.31 for Ph.D. students, all on a 20-day deadline. My 3-page-long college essay cost $60.43 on a 5-day deadline. However, I found an Essayonlinestore discount code for 15% off the first order (first15), so my price went down a little.
I won’t tell you anything about Essayonlinestore rating, because I couldn’t find any feedback on Trustpilot, SiteJabber, or Reddit. It is highly suspicious for the company that has been around since at least 2017 to have no testimonials. Moreover, there are no Essayonlinestore reviews on their website. Either the company can’t be bothered with gathering customer feedback, or it is so awful, they can’t post it for fear of scaring away new clients.
I contacted customer support in search of writing samples because I couldn’t find any on the “Paperwork examples” page. Grace, the customer representative, responded quickly and provided me with links to a couple of PDFs with History essays. I was unsure about their authenticity, as there were Writeperfect LTD watermarks across all pages, but Grace pointed out it was the name of the company that hosted Essayonlinestore and other websites.
Is Essayonlinestore reliable? Terms and Conditions do not paint a good picture. For one, there is no sure way to get a full refund. Even if the order is late, you can’t get any of the money back, though the company offers store credit and discounts for future orders. I’m not sure it is the best policy, considering I wouldn’t have wanted to use the service that had already failed to deliver on time once.
Is Essayonlinestore legit? That was the question that popped into my mind when I opened the order form and saw a number much higher than expected. It took me a couple of minutes to locate two boxes that were pre-checked (SMS updates and TOP writer) that raised the price by over $20. Otherwise, the order form was similar to any other website with fields for contact information, paper topic, academic level, and more. I had to provide my credit card information because the company did not offer the PayPal option.
At first glance, the paper looked reasonably solid. Once I had the time to read it carefully, I realized it was more of a compilation of source material than an actual essay. The writer failed to provide analysis and transitions. As a result, the paper read like a series of clippings that did nothing to support the thesis, though that was absent too. My answer to the question of “Is Essayonlinestore good?” is “Not by a long shot.”
Additional features are sprinkled throughout the order form and have no listed prices. I’m not sure which of them are static and which come as a percentage of the order total. For examples, SMS updates are $3.99, while VIP Support and High Priority Status are $9.99 each. The TOP writer would have added $18.15 to my order, while Initial draft would cost only $12.09. The most expensive item on offer was an extra quality check that came at $42.33 for my 3-page-long essay, nearly doubling the price. In the end, I did not add any additional features to my order, so I can’t be sure how good or bad they would have been.
I did not enjoy my experience with this company, and I do not recommend it for anyone hoping for a high grade. Here’s a recap of my Essayonlinestore review if you have no time to read the full report.
