Pricing System

We visited the pricing page at FreshEssays.com to learn more about their pricing structure. Like most other writing providers, FreshEssays charges for each written page. The specific amount varies according to the service category, grade level, and urgency. The lowest price for writing is 10 dollars per page. This is for a high school level paper with a 20 day deadline. College papers begin at 15 dollars per page. This is pretty standard for academic writing services. For their payment students receive original writing, citations, bonuses towards future services, academic research, and customer support.

Here is a breakdown of FreshEssays pricing for other services.

Editing and proofreading start at 6 dollars per page and go up to 14 dollars for Ph.D. students. Multiple choice questions are answered at a rate that starts at 1 dollar per question. Problem-solving ranges from 15 dollars to 35 dollars per problem.

Because they have a global customer base, the company accepts payments in various currencies. Students may pay for their orders in USD, GBP, AUD, EUR, and CAD.

In addition to purchasing standard writing services, students may also purchase extras. For example, they can select a preferred writer. They may also order preferred customer service. These cost extra above and beyond the standard rates.

The company does offer some discounts. The loyalty program mentioned above allows customers to earn bonuses towards future orders. They can also save 5% on orders of more than 500 dollars and 10% on orders of more than 1000 dollars

Types of Services

According to the services page on FreshEssays.com the company focuses entirely on writing and other services that relate to academics.

FreshEssays Academic Writing

It’s pretty clear that this is the premium service offered here. They offer original academic research and writing for students from high school through doctorate level programs. Their products include:

  • Articles
  • Annotated Bibliographies
  • Dissertations
  • Case Studies
  • Reports
  • Reviews
  • Speeches
  • Summaries
  • Thesis Proposals
  • Essays
  • Admissions Essays
  • PowerPoint Presentations

Editing And Proofreading

To be clear any order for writing is edited and proofread. This service is for students who wish to upload their own writing to be double-checked. According to the services page, writers are only allowed to change 30% of the text or less. They check for plagiarism, errors, and inconsistencies.


These are services that FreshEssays offers for complex assignments. These are usually ordered for STEM classes, and intensive research projects. For example, providing assistance with doing calculations on batches or research data, or solving a complicated equation.

Homework Help

Students may also order assistance with academic writing assignments at any grade level, or academic discipline. The details of these can be worked out when the student places an order.

Multiple Choice Questions

Multiple choice questions remain one of the most common test and assignment types. Because of this, FreshEssays offers multiple choice answering services.

For this review, we made arrangements to receive an academic essay for a college level student. We received the paper on time. The writer did appear to be qualified in that they used trustworthy academic sources, stuck to the topic, and provided all of the elements that were ordered. Overall, the writing quality was average. The paper followed instructions but was not particularly insightful. We would say that the company met, but did not exceed our expectations.

Payment Options

FreshEssays expects payment to be made before work begins on any writing assignment. They provide a secure online payment system that the customer enters as they finalize their order.  Customers are allowed to make payment via PayPal.

They have an authorization policy that requires customers to upload a copy of their ID and credit card. This is not something we see very often at other companies. This is presumably to verify the payment ID.


Like other sites, there are guarantees posted in many places on the FreshEssays.com website. These include promises of privacy and discretion. FreshEssays also promises original works that are completed by qualified writers.

In order to learn more about the guarantees offered by FreshEssays, we read multiple policy pages. We also searched for online reviews written by verified customers.

Overall, the policies here are pretty standard. The company offers up to three free revisions to ensure quality. Customers may request a plagiarism scan report as well. According to the revision policy, revision requests must align with the original instructions, and be submitted in a timely manner. This information is found within the site’s terms of use policy, as is most other information.

One thing to note is that the policies due include a statement of indemnification that says the customer agrees not to hold the company or their associates liable for any damage done due to the use of their services.

The privacy and cookies policy covers a wide variety of topics.  It explains why and how customer data is collected and used. It also details the specific information that is collected, how long it is stored, and how it is processed. There is also information on addressing complaints or concerns. Like most sites, they address their use of cookies and various analytics tools.

Because the company operates in the EU, they are GDPR compliant. This information may be found at the top of the privacy page.

Finally, we read several reviews from students who have used this service. The sentiment is generally positive in terms of the company treating customers fairly. However, there are a few complaints of service issues not being resolved, and accusations of unfair or unethical behavior.

Is Site Legit?

It does appear as though FreshEssays is a legitimate company. Their website is safe to use. We received our paper as we should have, and other customers do as well. FreshEssays even publishes their business registration information on their website. We did not find significant consumer complaints or allegations.

At the same time, this statement of legitimacy is not an endorsement of quality or customer service. It simply indicates that we have no reason to believe this company is a fraud or scam.


We did uncover some positive aspects about FreshEssays. Students should take them into consideration. These include:

  • The FreshEssays.com website is attractive and easy to navigate.
  • They charge reasonable prices.
  • Students may receive help for a variety of academic assignments.
  • Their reputation is generally good.


Unfortunately, not everything about FreshEssays was positive. We did find a few things that bothered us a bit. The first was their authorization method. Some customers don’t feel comfortable providing front and back copies of their credit cards and government identification cards. This is not information that can be encrypted, and there is no indication of what might be done with this information. The other negative relates to the available discounts. These are rather lackluster when compared to other services.

To Sum Up

Our overall rating of FreshEssays is average. Many students do receive satisfactory orders. Their prices are reasonable, and the company adheres to industry standards in terms of policies and procedures. On the other hand, there are some complaints via reviews. Not all of these were resolved to the customers` satisfaction. There is also a lack of information online about FreshEssays.com. They simply aren’t as well-established as other services.

Students who are considering using this service are advised to do additional research. We encourage them to read reviews, talk with customer service, and try to connect with other students. Also, it is a good idea to read our reviews on other services, simply to see how things stack up.
