Bid4Papers.com is relatively new in the writing service business, having been established in 2013. It claims to have over 1000 writers at this point; however, many are probably part-time freelancers. The company currently seeks college students as its client base; however, that may expand in years to come. This review is provided so that students who are considering the use of a writing company can have accurate information about Bid4Papers features, policies, and operation, and it is based upon information that we have been able to find on the site and on other review and social media sites.
Review Items: This review covers the following categories: writing services, reputation/trustworthiness, policies and procedures, product quality, customer service, and pricing. In all cases, we have taken into account the Bid4Papers testimonials on the website, as well as feedback and comments that customers have provided elsewhere on the Internet.
Perhaps because it is yet a young company, Bid4papers.com offers only academic work, and, from content on its site, its customer base is from among undergraduate college students. Under its “services” link, it lists essays, college papers, and editing, but it is probably easy to assume that essays and papers include such things as book reviews, analyses, presentations, and such – probably any type of writing assignment at the college level.
To date, Bid4Papers reviews indicate that customers receive what they have ordered by their deadline dates. Perhaps more significant, company customers state that two of the most important Bid4papers benefits are the guarantee of no plagiarism, which is backed up with a plagiarism scan, and the protection of their privacy. Most customers of writing services do not want it known that they are using such services, and Bid4papers.com does a good job of protecting that confidentiality.
The company publishes an address in Cyprus but provides no telephone number for contact. This may be a bit of a concern, for customers do like to see a published number they can call when there are issues. Bid4Papers alternative means of communication with the company is via email or messaging through the use of an in individual account on the site.
Payment procedures are fully secure, and the company takes all major credit cards, as well as PayPal and e-checks. Customers place money in their accounts based upon the order amounts, and then release that money to their writer(s). The company fee is subtracted from customer accounts when funds are deposited for a project.
The customer enjoys direct communication with the writer on each project. This provide an openness that is becoming standard for the industry now.
From samples that are available for viewing on the company site and from customer feedback, it is concluded that writing quality is solid and appropriate for college level expectations. Because quality is also a result of writer qualifications and expertise, we attempted to locate information about the writers. No background information is available; however, students may inquire about academic credentials and writing experience of the writers themselves, although there is no method of verification.
Many customers place an order and “open” the order to a bidding process. The order is published and interested writers place their bids on an individual customer account page. The customer then selects a writer and price.
The other method of determining price is to place an order and allow the company to set a price and assign the order to a writer. This method is quite pricey – a two page argumentative essay recently ordered as a “test” generated a cost of over $53.00.
While a customer may get a hold of someone through email and messaging, the lack of a phone number negates and emergency contact if there are major issues or important questions to ask.
Customers are directed to their writers for questions and problems, and only to the company itself in cases of completing an order or issues with payment processing.
Bid4Papers.com is a relative newcomer that already has some good policies and practices in place. Customers are generally happy with the products they receive, and, with time, the company will refine its services and probably expand its offerings.
