Academic Writing Services Offered
Ultius.com offers a wide range of services arranged in seven groups: essay, research paper, thesis, dissertation services, services by subject, services by citation style and miscellaneous services. Nearly every service we can think of is included in these groups and if not, the company says you can contact their customer service and check if they provide the paper you need.
Pricing Model and Payment Options
Interestingly, prices here do not depend on the type of academic paper. They differ if you have a writing, editing or business task, but every paper written from scratch would cost the same.
Even if the price of papers is the same for both simpler and more complex papers, the pricing is a big issue. Ultius offers prices that are high when compared to those of other services, starting with $17.50 per page for a high school paper of any deadline! As for higher level papers, a Masters paper with the longest deadline would cost you $26 per page, while a doctoral would cost $32 per page, which is an extremely high price for the budget of students.
Newcomers’ Discounts and Loyalty Program
Seeing how high the prices of this service are, our next move was to check for their loyalty program and discounts for newcomers. We must say, this was the part that disappointed us most.
There is no first-order discount or loyalty program that would attract new customers or keep the ones who already ordered from the company. The only discount found on this website is 10% for future orders if no writer is available to work on the paper! This is not only absurd, but actually indicates that the company is not really reliable and may leave you without a paper when you most need it.
We decided to order a term paper from the service in order to check the quality of content they provide. The writer assigned to our paper delivered it within the given deadline and provided us with formatted and proofread paper. However, we found the quality to be bad for the high price we paid since it did not fit the Masters level we ordered it for.
Customer Care and Support
Once we received the paper, we contacted the customer support and asked for a revision. The agent that we spoke to on the live chat was prompt and very helpful, after which he immediately approved our request for revision.
The revised paper arrived later that day and was improved, but still not worth the high rate we paid.
Ultius.com is a legit company that has been providing a wide range of writing services to students for nearly a decade, but it is not a company we evaluated as a good choice for your papers. Why? Because their pricing is very high for a writing service and they offer no discounts or loyalty policy whatsoever. Moreover, the paper we got from the service was not as good as one would expect when paying the quote.
