When I first saw Custom Writings, it looked familiar. I was sure I had already tried this service. But no; I had no history with it. It looked familiar because in design and offer, it’s similar to some of the top writing services. They give you strong guarantees and free features. They let you choose your quality level and deadline. It’s the classic way of functioning for a writing service.
There are a few Custom Writings reviews out there, and they are mixed. Some students are happy with the quality they get from CustomWritings. But in most reviews, there are complaints about the lack of professionalism.
I ordered a paper to write my own CustomWritings review. I’ll get into the details, so you’ll know what to expect if you hire writers from this service.
Prices and Discounts
CustomWritings.com has a flexible pricing system, which means your price depends on the chosen quality level and deadline. You get five quality options, ranging from High School to PhD. You may set the deadline between 14 days and 4 hours for High School and Undergraduate, between 14 days and 8 hours for Graduate, and between 14 days and 24 hours for PhD quality.
Depending on your choice, the price at CustomWritings will be from $10 to $49 per page. Not bad.
The problem is that there are no discounts, so Custom Writings turns out more expensive when compared to some top-ranked services. Is it able to compete in terms of quality? The mixed testimonials were kind of suspicious. So I decided to order a paper and give you the most detailed CustomWritings.com review.
You don’t get to choose a writer here. You place an order by filling in a simple form, and the admin chooses a writer for you.
This system works only when the team is consisted of trained writers with relevant experience. In this case, that’s not the case. CustomWritings.com did not assign a qualified writer to my order. The admin simply chose an available writer, who was probably a newbie in the team and had no idea what an essay was supposed to look like.
If the writers were good, we’d see positive Custom Writings reviews regarding the ordering process. But when they have zero qualifications, a bidding system would work better. At least the students would be responsible for their own choices.
Communication with Writer
I was happy to see that this service enabled direct communication between the writer and the customer. There’s a system of progressive delivery in place. It means that the writer delivers the work in installments and you constantly offer feedback. In theory, it works well. In practice, there was NO communication between me and my writer.
I tried to contact him. I tried to get my “installments” but none of that happened. He delivered the essay by the deadline, but that’s not the only thing they promise.
I set a deadline of 24 hours for the Graduate quality level. Although the writer delivered the work on time, he still didn’t respect the guarantees of the service. When I asked for revisions, the writer accepted my requirement but took an entire week to make minimal changes. The changes made no difference.
The Work I Got
So I sit to review the essay and what do I see? It’s not an essay at all. I ordered a paper on Eastern philosophy and the writer set this theme: Eastern Philosophy. That’s ridiculous. Anyone who’s ever written an essay knows that the theme needs to be narrowed down into a specific topic. This writer made vague statements that had no connection between one another.
This CustomWritings.com review would be more positive if I got the revisions. I deserved them. I asked the writer to make the work better and more specific. But he only added a sentence or two throughout the paper. The revisions didn’t make a difference.
To wrap up my CustomWritings review, I have to say that the service has some potential. But currently, it’s not a website I’d recommend.
