A writing service with a rather interesting name, this one had attracted our attention after we read a bunch of Vivaessays reviews on other independent websites. For example, a couple of customers suggested that their essays were plagiarised, which is a serious fail for any essay writing service. Others listed problems like revisions, unhelpful support agents, and unclear pricing. On most independent review sites, the average Viva Essay rating was lower than 3 out of 5.
In other words, this writing service might have caused a lot of problems for students, but we still needed to make our own Vivaessays review. Here, we share our findings, and believe us, they will surprise you.
Writing Services Offered
You won’t find a lot of information about writing services provided by Viva Essays even if you visit every page on their website. Seriously, the company only mentioned that they can with anything, whether you need “a simple high school essay or a PhD-level dissertation.”
The only way you can view the full list of services is by creating an account or messaging their customer support, which, by the way, also requires an email and other information (not exactly a user-friendly solution). When we contacted the customer support through live chat, here was the answer we’ve got.
The only time they’ve mentioned their services is the Prices menu section (see the screenshot below), where three categories are included: writing, editing, and proofreading.
Pricing and Discounts
There’s no pricing table at Viva Essays, which makes calculating the price of an order a bit difficult. The only mentioning of the prices we found was this one.
As you can see, these are just starting prices of their services, so there’s no way you’ll know the full price of your order unless you create an account and go through the whole ordering process.
If you click on the Place Order button hoping to see the list of prices, all you’ll see is this.
So, if you’re on a budget or would like to calculate the price of your assignment before checkout, you can’t do that with Viva Essays.
During making this Vivaessays Review, we also found that they offer no discounts for first-time customers. There is, however, a loyalty program (the screenshot above has some details), but the information about it is rather limited.
The college sophomore-level research paper on economics delivered by Viva Essays was not worth $51.66 we paid for it. The writer clearly had no idea what he/she was writing about because the body of the paper was full of definitions and off-topic sentences. Even though the requested number of references was 4, we found 9 cited works (2 of them were websites!), and many of them could have been removed if all those definitions weren’t present.
We strongly suspect that the writer was not qualified to write an economics research paper because you feel like it was composed by a high school student.
Customer service team members were helpful during making this Vivaessays review. However, we did have to wait a bit to connect to them via the live chat option (as it turned out, we were a third person in the queue). But keep in mind that you have to give away your personal details every time you message them, which is something people don’t appreciate.
For example, after we gave away our email the first time, we received three messages from Viva Essays in our inbox. Undoubtedly, more is to come, so spam is definitely a concern.
Well, at this point, we realize why the average ratings as well as Vivaessays reviews that we found were negative.
Here are a few points we believe can be important to you:
- The company has problems with hiring good writers because our paper was written by someone who had no idea what they were doing
- the writer had failed to follow our instructions
- Vivaessays is hiding the prices until the very last moment. Clearly, they’re trying to attract people by showing only the lowest prices for the longest deadlines
- no discounts for first-time customers, only an ambiguous loyalty program
So, based on the experience we’ve had making this Vivaessays review, we definitely don’t recommend this essay writing service to anyone.
