Even though this company is one of the oldest essay writing services we’ve ever come across (it was established in 1998), we didn’t find a lot of Paper Masters reviews on other independent sites. In fact, we have managed to find only about 30 reviews out there, and only a few of them were positive. Our experience tells us that a lack of reviews – let alone positive ones – is a red flag that often suggests that the company simply doesn’t enjoy a lot of customers.
Also, PaperMasters website also looks something right out of the 1990s, as it has a ridiculously outdated design and a hard-to-navigate interface. This is also a red flag because it may suggest that the company doesn’t make enough money to update its website.
Well, let’s find out if this is true.
Writing Services Offered
For this Papermasters review we checked the range of services and it includes both typical and more specialized papers. In addition to common assignments like essays, research papers, book reports, term papers, and annotated bibliographies, the company also claims to be able to help with:
- Letter of transmittal
- Admission essay
- Personal statement for medical school
- Journal entries
- Master’s proposals.
On top of that, Master Papers also do ghost writing services, which is writing for someone and giving away all rights to the text to that person. This is something that people in need of autobiographies, books, personal essays, and other projects can use.
Pricing and Discounts
There are three writing levels provided at Master Papers: undergraduate, graduate, and master’s. The company has just two prices for each level based on the urgency:
- $23.95 per page, 4+ days deadline
- $30.95 per page, delivered within 4 days
- $30.95 per page, 4+ days deadline
- $35.95 per page, delivered within 4 days
- $35.95 per page, 4+ days deadline
- $40.95 per page, delivered within 4 days.
There’s also the so-called “Research Service Fee,” which is imposed on customers whose assignments are short but require “an intense amount of reading, video viewing, and researching.” According to Paper Masters, this fee is discussed with the customer first.
Well, all we can say that we understand why this fee is involved, but the prices overall are higher than in the vast majority of essay writing services.
As for discounts, there’s not a single mentioning of them on Papermasters.com. Disappointing.
To test the quality of writing in this Paper Masters review, we ordered a three-page research paper on law. Although the writer has done a good job of completing the assignment two days before the deadline, the quality of writing and analysis could’ve been better. The purpose of the paper was to analyze Loving v. Virginia, one of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases.
A major flaw of the paper was the inability of the writer to provide a sound analysis of the case without going into too many irrelevant details. For example, almost half of the paper was dedicated to the description of the events leading to the case, which wasn’t the primary goal of the assignment. That’s why when our team in charge of this Paper Masters review has unanimous in the conclusion that the first part of the assignment felt like a personal essay, not a research paper on law.
All of this is especially disappointing considering the fact that a customer support representative called us an hour after we ordered the assignment and told us that they’re going to charge the “Research Service Fee.” Of course, we disagree with that assessment because we don’t believe that the paper we ordered was overly complex. However, we had to give them green light because we needed to test their quality.
Papermasters.com should update their customer support as soon as possible. There’s no function to connect with them through either live chat or Facebook Messenger, which makes it a little bit difficult to get answers fast. At this point, you can only call them or send them an email.
We found several major problems while making this Paper Masters review:
- The writer couldn’t deliver a quality law paper and wrote something like a personal essay instead
- The prices are higher than industry-average + there are no discounts!
- Customer support called us and told us they were going to impose a fee on us because the paper was complex! (what?)
- There’s no possibility to reduce the price by having a longer deadline
- There are no live chat and Messenger option to get in touch with customer service
- com looks like something out of the 1990s: it’s outdated, poorly designed, and is difficult to navigate.
So, based on our experience, we don’t recommend Paper Masters. We had to pay a fee on top of the cost of the paper and the paper wasn’t good at all.
