1. First of all - quality of service

Well; where do we start? There are over 150 different services listed on this site, and even that list is by no means exhaustive. This company is run by One Freelance Limited and has been going since 2008. This is interesting because we clicked on random service technology papers and the quote, “in this semester of 2008” came up; this is obviously eight years out of date! The copy here seems quite stilted and is certainly not written by a native English speaker.

The writers are sourced from major educational institutions in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Canada.

Free sample papers are available at a cost of $5, and these allow you to choose a writer individually if you like their paper - but only within 2 hours of the sample being generated. testimonials are broken down into two types; completed orders and feedback. The feedback rating is out of five stars - and every single one has five stars - which makes us a little suspicious; bear in mind that these are internal testimonials and treat them accordingly.

2. Prices, benefits …

Pricing is broken down by the academic level of the student, the number of pages needed, the urgency of the assignment, and the type of paper that is required - as an example, a four-year undergraduate level academic paper of 10 pages, with a deadline of 14 days, would cost $160 before any discount is applied.

Payments can be made by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, and Skrill, on an encrypted and secure order form.

CustomWritings discounts are certainly not obvious, and take some finding, being buried away amongst the services section. There is a lifetime discount of 5% for orders over $500, 10% for more than $1,000, and 15% for more than $2,000. coupons, promo codes did not seem to be available.

There appear to be no freebies or offers available, aside a free plagiarism checker which is only available for five uses. They also say that they offer free inquiries- why would you pay to inquire about an essay service?

There is a free blog available on the site which is actually quite informative and covers many of the service subjects and related topics, such as writing a speech.

CustomWritings reviews are not overly enthusiastic about the pricing or the discounts available.

3. Customer support, delivery

Customer support is available by calling a toll-free phone line or by live chat. The problem here is that the chat service is only available from Monday midnight until Saturday at 1 p.m. It is not a 24/7 service.

Customer service staff were good and knew their subject well; they answered our queries efficiently and with great enthusiasm.

Delivery can be whole or in part, under a system of "progressive delivery service"; this enables you to pay for and receive your order in segments.

At least one review on Custom Writings mentioned that the customer service staff were helpful and knowledgeable.

4. Trustworthiness

Is Custom Writings scam? No - the company has been around since 2008. The payment system is fully encrypted and secured by Trust e and Thawte Security. Student information is never divulged to third parties, and again, is fully encrypted. There is a password and username system for students to gain access to their personal accounts. BBB (Better Business Bureau) Membership and affiliation could not be confirmed.

CustomWritings rating sites are favorable regarding the financial and ethical trustworthiness of custom writings.

5. Editor's conclusion certainly makes a big splash on its website, but look a little closer and cracks begin to appear. The details of the website itself are weak, and lots of the writing is disjointed and strangely phrased. - This does not bode well for your essay really.

There is a section of the website showing the statistics of the various disciplines - looking through this there is an average of around 8.45 on every single subject We leave this to your interpretation.

Pricing is relatively high, a fact that is acknowledged on the website FAQs, and the discounts are hard to find. Allied with this, the company makes great play of its writing - the descriptions on the website itself do not bear this out - we would have reservations about using company reviews on external rating sites would tend to confirm this observation.


I delivered two essays from and they were delivered on time, which is a huge advantage of the service comparing it to the other companies I'd used. The quality was not as good as I expected - there were grammar and spelling mistakes in one of the essays. I asked for the revision, but the support said that the editors were busy and offered me to wait till the next day. It was an urgent issue and I insisted on instant revision. After a little bit of arguing with the support got it for free the same day. I'd say Custom Writings is OK. Nothing extraordinary, neither anything bad.

Nice service! They deliver writing assignments on time and the quality of papers is good. There might be errors in papers, but the revision is free here. Also it's plagiarism-free!
