1. Site overview
Hello and welcome! Today I am going to review one of my favorite paper writing sites. During my college years, it repeatedly saved my ass with most urgent papers. Meet the speediest writing site on a market – speedypaper.com. And your first question might be “is speedy paper legit?”
The general view of the site is quite simple. Unlike most of the sites I’ve used, speedypaper is not cluttered with unnecessary information. What I really like about writing sites is when they allow me to check price as quickly as possible without having to interact with support.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against qualified help, but sometimes I don’t want to have strings attached (i.e. leaving my personal info) and want to know the price to make sure I can make it financially. Calculator is exactly what helps me to check price within a few mouse clicks.
The site also has some useful info if you hesitate on whether to use it or not:
- How it works video (can be useful to people who are new to using such sites)
- Samples (the quality more or less matches the one I got)
- Speedypaper review from the outside resources (not those fakey reviews but the ones people leave on credible review sites)
On the whole, SP gets my like for not making customers’ life more difficult. Simplicity is what I value in all things and this site is not an exception.
2. Customer support
This is where magic begins. They are really fast. When I say fast, I really mean it. Although they might be quite busy during the hot season (April – May, when students have most of their papers due), I was surprised with the way they react to some common situations. Just a few days ago I placed an order for 10 pages with a deadline of 7 days.
In a day I received an email from my professor who decided to change paper instructions. Most services charge the additional fees or even refuse adding more details (truth to be told, it’s all written in their policy). I had a week before the next paycheck, so I could not afford placing a new order. Can you imagine my relief when Steven allowed me to send the additional info for the paper without any additional payments.
Are you attentive enough? Check out the speed with which I was given a reply! I specifically made those screenshots to back up my words – the average speed of reply was around two minutes!
Of course, this is the ultimate example of SP quick support, but in general it takes around 6-7 minutes to receive a reply during the hot season and around 3-4 minutes during the low season. Some supports are not that friendly, some reply with generic phrases, but if you compare their support with that of Google/Apple/Facebook, you will find yourself in support heaven.
3. My experience
I have been usingthis company since the second year of studies, when I got a part-time job and was learning to code to get to the Java bootcamp. First time I was quite skeptic about using such type of service and therefore decided to outsource them a simple philosophy paper. How surprised was I when I got this paper returned with an A- grade, whereas my best result in this class was B+.
I got really intrigued by this possibility to unload my schedule from shitty papers and do what is meaningful to me. In total, I placed 18 orders during the course of 3 years and SpeedyPaper deserves a fair share of my degree. Out of curiosity I also use some other services (there’s always place for perfection) but SpeedyPaper is like first love – it always stays in your heart.
To move away from all lyrics, after my good experience with SP I kept experimenting with the similar services and that’s how the idea to create a blog to help you all was born.
4. Order form
The order form is intuitively simple and clear. There are 3 quick steps to fill out before you submit the payment details. Step 1 basically asks you for paper details/formatting/additional materials. Step 2 is all about customizing the price by setting the deadline, academic level and type of work.
Lifehack: always place your orders in advance. This gives you some additional time for revisions as well as puts you on a safe side in case of emergencies. It’s always easier to pay additionally and ask for shorter deadline later on than placing orders with short deadlines and paying big bucks for some regular college essay.
I was really surprised to discover that the quality for urgent orders is almost the same as for order with a 2-week deadline. So, if you are in a hurry, use this service with confidence.
Step 3 offers you extra features for your choice: PRO/TOP writer, progressive delivery, and plagiarism report. Let’s review them one by one:
- PRO/TOP writer – best writers they have, they are punctual, precise in following your details and deliver quality up to my standards (I always expect not less than a B from such writers. TOPs got me B+ and A- on two important capstone projects). If you are short of cash and still want your work above average go for PRO. If the project is of utmost importance – TOP writer is my pick.
- Progressive delivery allows you to get your work on a draft-by-draft basis. By paying additional 10% you put yourself on a safe side and have a better grip on your paper quality. This feature is very useful for papers longer than 10 pages, because it allows you to react to paper discrepancies much quicker than if you had got a full paper at once.
- Plagiarism report costs $9.99 regardless of the number of pages (some other services charge more for papers over 10 pages long). Basically, this report shows you the level of online plagiarism (don’t mistake it with plagiarism by paraphrasing or incorrect citing, this report won’t save you from those). I rarely use this feature myself, but it can be a dealbreaker for overly paranoid students who don’t believe that their work is original.
- Lifehack: if your academic life is at stake and you are scared of getting caught for plag – use writecheck.com. It’s a service designed by TurnItIn (with the only difference that it does not add papers to the database) and only it gives you a close to 100% protection from plagiarism.
5. Discounts and pricing
SpeedyPaper offers some liberal pricing structure for an average student. They start as low as $9 per page for High School work and go up to $49 per PhD 6-hour page of work.
According to their FAQ, “Each writer’s payment is derived from several variables: academic level, complexity of paper, and deadline, but cannot be less than $8. We have a flexible system of negotiations with writers about their bids, which allows us to assign a satisfied writer to work on your order.”
Their minimum payment is over $8, which is approximately the hourly wage of a McDonald’s employee, but if you pick high academic level or make it more urgent, the writer’s wages will rise up to $15-20, which is a decent payment for a freelance writer. This makes me think that writers who are paid well are more motivated to deliver better work.
To minimize costs, SpeedyPaper clearly states that they outsource their customer support to Ukraine. To me, it never mattered a lot. I had no issues communicating with Ukrainian support (unlike that of Indian) and if this move allowed Speedy to lower the customer prices and increase the writers’ salaries, then SP gets my respect for this move. Grab a 10% SpeedyPaper discount.
SpeedyPaper officially offers up to 3 free revisions, but in practice they take as many revisions as necessary to leave you satisfied. Personally I had 5 revisions maximum. The writer stuck at one question and we had to do it step by step to get it done right. Lifehack: don’t be lazy to type your revision comments.
Some of my friends complained about bad grades but later on confessed that they wanted the writer to do everything for them and were not willing to cooperate. This is a bad approach. If you want to be a smart customer, you need to communicate with support and writers to achieve the best results.
I even know the cases when Regular writers produced better results than PROs because one customer was detailed about his revisions, whereas the second customer could not properly explain what was wrong.
7. Final quality
After revisions and my personal editing (I try not let things go on their own) I usually score around B+/A-. The content is very solid and after I distil it with my own ideas it looks really good. Sometimes I find it really hard to collect the data or organize my ideas. Speedy is a safe writing company!
8. Writer’s proficiency
According to the FAQ section, SpeedyPaper writers have at least Bachelor degree with a decent GPA. Good enough for me. If I want a better quality I pick PRO/TOP writers who usually have Master or even PhD degree (have not ordered their papers yet, but Master level writers usually delivered quite solid researches).
Lifehack: if you liked the writer’s work, you can request him/her to be your preferred writer (Note that if you previously ordered a PRO writer, by asking for a Preferred writer you will need to pay for this extra again). Such approach helps you maintain the same quality of work during one course. In a long-term run it also protects you from professor’s suspicion of using someone else’s help.
9. People talking
There are tons of speedypaper reviews (if this can be applied to such sort of business). They have really good reviews on credible sites like TrustPilot (https://www.trustpilot.com/review/speedypaper.com), SiteJabber (https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/speedypaper.com), IHateWritingEssays (https://www.ihatewritingessays.com/speedypaper-com-review#blog) and ScamFighter (https://scamfighter.net/review/speedypaper.com).
There are, of course, some bad feedbacks, but what pleases me in this situation is that SP management quickly mitigates all conflicts with unsatisfied customers and even offers some hefty discounts. Strange enough, I didn’t find any speedypaper reddit reviews.
10. Loyalty program
SpeedyPaper does not have explicit loyalty program but if you have many orders with them, you can easily ask for a lifetime discount or some free bundles. Usually they offer 11-15% discounts. If you are placing big order (over $500), you can negotiate about even better speedypaper discount.
11. Pros and Cons
In general, I am very satisfied with SpeedyPaper service and consider it one of the best in price-quality category. They offer tremendous value for an adequate price and have a really friendly support. Good choice for people who want stability.
