Buyessay Review 2020 | About Buyessay
Students in high school, college, and those at the graduate and post-graduate levels are often overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work including essays, research papers, dissertations and other assignments that they need to submit in fulfillment of their diploma or degree accreditation requirements. Thus, the demand for online writing services has skyrocketed from learners looking for any sort of help with these tough academic assignments, or from those looking to free up a bit of personal time in their busy schedules.
One of the more frequently mentioned academic writing services is Buyessay.co.uk. In this article, we are going to be reviewing the services that are offered by Buyessay, including their prices, customer service, and overall customer satisfaction, their speed, accountability and living up to the guarantees that they claim, overall site design, and their reliability. In this regard, we aim to present an unbiased Buyessay review based on our own experience and interaction with the website, staff, and most importantly, the quality of writing from this service.
Naturally, the first place we went to on the Buyessay.co.uk website was the ‘About’ section, since we wanted to learn more about the company we’d be entrusting with a ‘major’ assignment, which was our test essay. However, this section contains virtually no information about the origins of the service and who the people behind it are. There are no writer profiles, and little veracity to their claims about being able to write undergraduate, masters and PhD-level papers.
One of the biggest problems that students face when looking for essay writing services is that of discerning services that are real and those that are merely ‘virtual entities’. That means some of these so-called ‘essay writing services’ aren’t real registered commercial companies. They might have a nice website design, and they may even purport to provide contacts and an actual physical location that customers can find them at. But all of it might just be a façade.
Buyessay.co.uk has a single address that has been provided on its ‘About’ page, but this information that has been provided doesn’t inspire too much confidence. This address which is in Rotterdam House, Newcastle doesn’t state the actual office, since it is a sizeable building. The information which has been provided doesn’t quantify as reliable for someone who might want to visit them. Then again, a physical address is always needed for domain server registrations, and it is highly the case.
Anyone looking for a professional writer online has a right to know whether that writer is qualified to work on their paper or not. It wouldn’t be fair to have an ESL undergraduate purport to write a PhD-level paper. With Buyessay.co.uk there is no mention of writer qualifications and the academic institutions that the said writers have attended. If there is no possibility of vetting writers before placing an order, red flags in anyone’s mind should be set off. Students are therefore advised to think carefully before placing an order with the company.
Still, along the lines of vetting writers, something else that caught our attention is the fact that Buyessay doesn’t even provide samples of its previous works. Ideally, any writing company should be able to showcase what it has done and its areas of expertise, but this isn’t the case with this particular company. Customers cannot be expected to operate on trust alone with regards to writing companies, as is the case of this particular company.
The company markets itself as employing former faculty including academicians, Ph.D. professors, college principals, and industry experts. A close look at the company’s services reveals that most of the services provided are at a novice level way below the presented credentials (why would a retired professor want to write an essay for a student?)
Something else that immediately catches one’s eye on the homepage is how the company mentions Ivy League graduates as writers, yet in other spaces such as in the Guarantees section, they mention native UK university writers and faculty.
If you chance upon a freelance site such as Upwork, you will see that those freelance writers not only provide their alma mater, but they also provide all additional qualifications that make them best suited for your writing project. Not in this case. These are ghostwriters, probably ESL writers who are not from the UK or US, and who have in all likelihood not taught in or graduated from Ivy Leagues.
Before making any purchase from this company, we urge you to read independent Buyessay reviews which will reveal more about what you can expect from this company. Something which we were able to uncover in our investigations is the fact that there are several domain names similar to Buyessay with the end prefix slightly changed to .org and numerous reports by other independent reviewers confirm that these are in-fact different websites owned by the same entity.
Further investigation on independent review sites also reveals how the company doesn’t in any way hire native UK writers as claimed. There is only a single phone line provided, and this rarely goes through. And on the few occasions when it does, the voice on the other side is never a native English accent.
We understand how desperate students might be hoodwinked by all positive reviews and, therefore, will not do their due diligence when it comes to first researching these academic writing sites. Most won’t go as far as calling to confirm who their writer is. This company takes advantage of such folks by providing them with a glamorous web design that throws anyone off trail right off the bat.
While all these other parameters can surely lead you to a great decision on whether to use a particular service or not, quality is what should be the main emphasis. Buyessay.co.uk claims in multiple places on their website that they offer astounding quality written by former professors and academicians. The quality of their work begs to differ. We’ve already mentioned how the company will not even provide written samples of its completed works. That should already set off alarm bells for anyone looking to order from them. But the quality of their completed work is sub-par below even undergrad level.
Let’s talk about pricing. The prices depend on the academic level and the deadline. As the website says, other factors are considered in the cost such as extra reading and references and special equations that may be needed but that haven’t been provided. An undergrad essay of 500 words would cost about $47 without the 20% discount for first-time customers.
Something unique about this service is that they are upfront about the variety in the quality of papers that they could potentially produce. You can have a 2:1 or 2:2 paper produced, the difference being the latter has higher quality.
Questions abound though. Why wouldn’t they just charge a premium and produce superior quality for all their orders like all legit services? It seems presumptive that they would produce a paper with sub-par quality and then bill you extra to have it refined through editing claiming that poor quality is what you had initially ordered.
It is also interesting to note that while they claim that most of their writers are former professors and academicians who have gone to Ivy League colleges and top UK universities, they offer no post-graduate writing services, only undergraduate and Master’s level papers. Furthermore, you cannot request a sample from these said expert writers first before you commence to make your order.
Other things to know about this service include their refund policy which proposes a 20% fine on the order sum if the order is canceled before 12 hours elapse, 50% fine before 24 hours elapse, 75% before 48 hours elapse and no refund possible after 48 hours. There may be different reasons why a customer would want to cancel an order, one being that they found out that the company was a sham, or that it couldn’t produce good quality.
Another would be because the student suddenly had extra time on their hands to work on the assignment. Therefore, the question begs about what would happen if someone made a payment of several thousand dollars for, say a research paper or a dissertation and needed to cancel it unexpectedly.
From the look of things, it seems like this company’s main objective is to make and keep money from students regardless of the quality that they offer, and regardless of whether or not the customer benefited from the service. Anyone reading this article should be aware that the purpose of this article isn’t to denigrate or cast in a negative light any agency providing a service. This Buyessay.co.uk review only seeks to inform any potential user of that service of the pros and cons that come with using this particular service.
There are more detailed aspects of the agency that have been covered in the sections below and which will hopefully guide you to make a more informed decision before settling on this particular company. We also encourage you to read independent reviews from other students on sites such as EssayScam and SiteJabber about this particular company.
Some Words about Design
Website design is one of the best aspects of this company. Buyessay.co.uk categorizes its services straight from the menu. Aside from being interactive and fluid, the website has colorful HD visuals and has been well-optimized for browsers. No problems occurred during the loading of the Buyessay website on our browser.
The website has various categories on its menu bar, such as Careers, Services, About Us, How it Works, and Order Now. From these sub-categories, you can access various features that are offered by Buyessay, and you’ll also learn more about the company. However, a lot of it is just repeated information. The FAQ section doesn’t tell the potential customer much about the company, and there’s no useful information that you will get there.
For those new to the website, there is a YouTube tutorial that shows one how to register and request for new orders. The order dashboard is also intuitive and well-designed. You can view new messages and communicate with your assigned writer in real-time. At the bottom of the page are various shortcuts that enable access to various other services, such as revision policies, confidentiality policies, T&Cs, etc.
The overall impression of the website design is a good quality one, although this doesn’t seem to have any implication on the overall quality of their written work.
How to Place an Order
Buyessay.co.uk has an intuitive order form that allows you to choose the exact service that you need. You have to access this service either from the main menu bar or from the bottom menu. Every first-time customer is offered a 20% discount with the first order they place.
The order form is quite detailed, and you can make specifications about the exact service that you need. For example, you can select the type of paper that you need (case studies, research papers, etc.), the subject, preferred format, and include any other additional information that you may prefer through attachments.
Once you’ve filled out the order form, you proceed to checkout through payment. You’ll also need to provide additional information like your phone number and email. You can pay through a variety of methods such as VISA, PayPal and MasterCard.
While the order process is itself seamless, making it mandatory for users to provide sensitive information such as email and phone numbers puts students at risk of getting spammed by the service, or other affiliate organizations with access to its servers.
In general, the process for getting your orders is fast and intuitive, but there are security and privacy concerns that abound, especially for those students looking for anonymity.
Non-Native Writers from Russia and Belarus
It seems like a problem that plagues most academic writing companies online. There are exceptions to this rule, and there are native English speakers from the US, UK, Canada, Australia and Singapore who work as hired or freelance academic writers. The vast majority, however, including seemingly from this website, are non-native speakers from Russia, Belarus, India, Ukraine and other countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Buyessay writers don’t seem to possess a clear mastery of written or spoken English, and this in no way means that they don’t have a good command of the language. However, from our own experience talking to our assigned writer and other staff, they are not native English speakers. While this itself isn’t a problem, the website purports to hire only native English writers, which distorts the truth.
Also, it is a conflict of interest, where students who are in these native-speaking English countries order papers, which are assumedly written by native writers as opposed to ESL speakers. It might put the student in limbo with his supervisors or professors as they may pick up on the fact that the paper was written by a third party. The consequences of direct plagiarism or passing off someone’s paper as your own cannot be leveraged on anything else.
Making Changes Into a Completed Work Is Hard
Any Buyessay review that you read on any of the different review sites will reveal how difficult it is to get them to make amendments. There are always issues of instructions and how much was paid which always forces the customer to dig deeper into their pockets. We always have an issue with someone saying that you got the quality you paid for (in this case bad!). No one should be writing academic papers if they can’t produce good quality.
Anyway, just be sure to make your instructions are clear and specific to the assigned writer before the deadline passes 12, 24, 48 hours, etc.
Plagiarism Free Only in Words but Not on Your Papers!
These guys try to woo you with the testimonials on their website, but those seem untrue, and somehow, most of those reviews are from Hotmail accounts.
Beyond not getting the quality that you paid for with lackluster English and improper presentation, the papers are not plagiarism-free. A 78% return on an academic paper from a professional writer isn’t good in any way, especially if a 100% return has been guaranteed.
Plagiarism can be direct or indirect. In the case of academic papers, proper referencing needs to be done to assure the marker that you have done your diligence and can attribute the ideas of others outside of your own. This kind of referencing is promised during the order process when you choose your preferred writing style.
You should also be able to attribute the ideas of others even if you are paraphrasing. None of this which was promised was fulfilled.
Communication and Customer Support Are Slow at Best
Did we mention that they only have one customer support line which always seems like its busy? You’d think that a service that claims dozens of writers could have a little better customer support. There should be several hotlines, and direct chats should be faster. These guys are quick to make deductions from your account but slow on almost everything else.
The writers are even slower. You might take a full two days to start interacting with your assigned writer, and by that time, it might be too late to review instructions successfully without having to pay extra.
The other problem with correspondence is how difficult communication was with the non-native writers in English. Several other customers have complained about how the lack of proper understanding during communication with writers, editors or customer service staff tends to distort instructions, and it comes back to bite the customer later.
Granted, they do ultimately respond to your queries and start working on them. However, time is everything to a student who has tough deadlines to meet. Students also use these services because they want one less thing to worry about. If your writer doesn’t respond to your queries soon and a deadline is looming, you will be a very worried student.
Fake and Edited Testimonials
Something caught our eye about the Buyessay.co.uk reviews that have been posted at the bottom of the website. All of those reviews have either a 4 or 5 star, but none of the students posting the review or the account screenshots provided of the rating seem genuine.
Potential customers need an ability to take several free samples and run these through a plagiarism checker such as Turnitin. Thus, even without too many testimonials, students can make informed choices about whether to proceed with purchases. Furthermore, Buyessay reviews on independent sites like Sitejabber reveal that their quality of writing is lackluster.
They Lack Confidentiality and Info-Security
Several Buyessay reviews online reveal that some students, once they signed up for the service, ended up receiving spam emails. It implies that the service is not as secure as then owners claim to be. And forget about the well-designed front-end which is the hook that latches all new users coming to this site. They have good PHP skills, but the security back-end is a letdown.
Some account users have complained that once they sign up for the site, they get spammed by mail from .ru sites which they never signed up for or visited before. Thus, the domain names might be hosted by a few servers (or server) whose resources are shared across the multiple domains.
It is important to note that this affects the confidentiality of the agreement as your information is shared between various third parties who could sell your data to ad marketers and hackers who could compromise your security. Furthermore, assuming that things go wrong and your essay is leaked or shared on the internet from one of these various sites, your professor could chance upon it, and it might land you into serious trouble.
They should make it possible for students to enquire first by private email without going through their servers.
How Their Bonus System Works
It requires consistent use of the service to get a full understanding of their bonus system, which isn’t a bonus system after all. You get a 20% discount on all new orders, but you can’t transfer these bonuses if you didn’t use them the first time around. Several Buyessay.co.uk reviews that we came across on the internet reveal that the company makes it quite difficult to follow up on those bonuses.
You might also want to countercheck whether the said bonus existed before contacting their writers. A lot of times, it has been revealed that the company always finds it difficult to pay out these bonuses.
Payment Methods Are Unreliable
We prefer services that can guarantee your online security. You’ve read earlier in this Buyessay.co.uk review that it seems apparent that the website shares a domain server with several other websites, which exposes users to security vulnerabilities. As elaborated by one user:
“I made a payment upon completing the order process, but their reps claimed that the payment had reversed. Because of that, the order was delayed. A real disappointment.”
While they accept credit and debit cards, we advise that you just use PayPal where you can easily reverse transactions. Several Buyessay.co.uk reviews have expressed customer disappointment in this regard.
Refunds Are Next to Impossible
A potential red flag of a scam writing company is where unlimited reviews are being offered. It probably means that their writers are not qualified enough and therefore you can expect results that aren’t great even on editing and re-editing.
You probably shouldn’t expect Buyessay to provide any refunds for your order. Instead, you’ll be taken several full circles on editing with these so-called ‘unlimited reviews’ because the company just doesn’t like giving out refunds.
This company is full of false promises right from the start. They claim that if you present even a single piece of evidence that a customer wasn’t happy with their service, they’ll do your paper for free or offer $1000. These are hook, line and sinker techniques that are used to rope in unsuspecting and desperate customers who pay a premium for the service and end up disappointed with few outlets to vent their frustrations to.
Think Twice Before Making Your Order from Them If You Want Quality
With Buyessay, you can’t tell whether your writer is going to satisfy you or not.
If you’re going to be asked for an immediate down payment when placing an order, you should also be assured that your writer is going to do a great job. This company has a grading system for writers, where you get the most skilled to do your paper at a premium. But that doesn’t preclude ordinary writers from doing at least a good job, especially when that has been promised.
Any Buyessay.co.uk review you read is going to reveal the poor quality that they produce.
Avoid Penalties from Your University by Steering Clear of Them
You don’t have to take our word for it. It may turn out to be a sour gamble if you don’t get the result that you wanted. There are plenty of testimonials online to show that the company’s papers often land students in trouble.
- One student writes:
“I didn’t expect to get an F on my paper. The writer made five amendments and still, it looked like crap. I don’t know why they didn’t just ask me to donate some cash.”
- Another one said:
“You wasted a lot of my time as I had to rewrite whole sections of the essay that you wrote. The writer had virtually no understanding of the framing of the thesis question. My professor would have easily busted me as this was a paper I had to hand in for my mid-term.”
It is the general trend of what the Buyessay review say about them. We’re not saying all of it is negative reviews. Though, what is clear is that if you dig deep enough, you’ll discover a ton of students who have been disappointed by the company.
That aside, students who are genuinely seeking online writing help should be guarded against possible cases of plagiarism exposure which might jeopardize their academic lives.
