Edubirdie.com is not your regular essay writing service. Instead of assigning a writer according to your requirements and academic level, this company allows customers to pick the experts that work on their papers. Yes, this is one more service that uses the bidding system to earn money, but according to reviews online, this does not always turn out to be the best approach.
In order to check what is missing and what the company does wrong, we decided to write an edubirdie.com review. Our edubirdie review looks not only into feedback online, but also services, prices, discounts and features offered by the company.
List of Services
Interestingly, the list here is not very extensive, but it is actually a fake one. The company hasn’t even created a services page, all because they do not have a definite range of services their writers can handle. So, the options of papers you will see in the ordering form does not indicate that the company delivers only those few papers, but you can actually choose the option ‘other’ and order any assignment you have, for any academic level and deadline.
The hard part comes later. Once you place the order and explain what you need done, writers start bidding on your paper. This may take plenty of time students rarely have, but you should definitely not rush into choosing a writer. According to feedback online, many students selected the wrong writer and got a low quality paper.
When you feel like you’ve waited enough and have a sufficient number of bidders to choose from, your task is to look into all bidders’ portfolios and profiles and choose the one with most experience and qualifications. Unfortunately, this company has excellent profiles for every writer and nothing less, which means that they aren’t really reliable.
At least that’s what feedback online suggests.
While the opportunity to order any paper within any deadline and for any academic level is amazing, this comes with many disadvantages, too. At the end, it all comes down to whether you like the bidding system or not.
All companies that work on the bidding system do not have set prices for their services. However, edubirdie.com has managed to set a starting rate for assignments, which is $18 per page. Unlike other companies, this actually means that the company is not a cheap one.
In order companies like this one, you can choose bidders that bid with unrealistically low prices, which often indicates low content. We are guessing that the reason for the setting of a minimal rate is to avoid such bidders, but unfortunately, low content is still often reported at the company.
The biggest disadvantage here is, $18 per page is not a realistic starting rate. As a matter of fact, this can be considered a steep offer for academic content when compared to prices on the writing market.
Discounts and Additional Features
As is the case with prices, there are also no discounts offered at edubirdie.com. The lack of discounts is a disadvantage with all such companies, but it is especially bad here because of the lowest price rule. Considering that the starting rate this company set is high to begin with, the lack of discounts makes it impossible to turn this company from a pricey one into an affordable one.
The bidding system does not generally allow for discounts, since customers agree on the rate with customers. But, since the company went over the general rules of this system, we expected to find at least a discount that reduces the lowest rate for new customers, to make it possible to try out the company at a reduced rate.
As it turns out, you won’t be finding any edubirdie discount code on the website, or a loyalty program to use as a returning customer. The only way to get a discounted offer is if you bargain one with one of the bidders, or you find a reliable writer and set a better price for all your papers with him.
Unfortunately, all signs point out to the conclusion that edubirdie.com does not have a lot of reliable writers on the team, and actually finding those who are is impossible because of the apparently excellent profiles and portfolios the company created. In addition to this, you can never know if a good writer will even choose to bid for your paper, or that any writer would bid at all.
