FastEssay.com if part of a growing number of writing agencies that operate more as job boards than in the traditional model of the majority of writing services. The company has been in business since 2015, which is a short time in comparison to many other companies.
We have not conducted a review of Fast Essay before this, because we have tried to focus on some of the older writing companies. But we have received enough comments and feedback by our users that it is time to do one. As usual, we have used the following factors in our evaluation:
In general, we want to see professional services and high-quality products – in short, a company that can be trusted to deliver on its promises.
Below is our summary of BastEssay.com.
Step 1: About FastEssay.com
As we stated, the company has been in business for about five years. It is set up as a job board. Students or others (e.g., job seekers, businesses) can order up any type of product, provide a detailed explanation of that need and then post that need for company-registered writers to bid on. Once writer place their bids, the customer can contact them and engage in discussions with them, asking any questions they want.
Ultimately, the customer and the writer agree on the price and deadline. And through the process, the customer is supposed to be able to speak with that writer at any time. Fast Essay holds the payment on account until the customer notifies it that the job is finished to his satisfaction.
Step 2: Quality of Products and Services
This bag is fully “mixed.” When we look at quality, we consider several factors:
Overall, we can say this. Product quality cannot be trusted.
Step 3: Writers and Support
Registered writers are profiled on the website. There is no information about their backgrounds or education. That is left to the customer to find out. There is a list of products and testimonials which cannot be verified.
Support from the company itself is minimal. It takes payment and posts the orders. When issues occur, the customer is directed back to his writer. When customers look for refunds, they state, the process is arduous and often not successful. Again, they keep being sent back to the writer for more revisions. We cannot say that customer support is reliable.
Step 4: Prices
Obviously, prices vary, although the company does post what it calls “expected costs.” It is up to the customer’s ability to negotiate a price with potential writers, and this puts a lot of onus on the customer’s shoulders. If you are not a good negotiator, you will end up paying what the writer bids. In comparison with other professional writing services, we find that Fast Essay customers tend to pay more for the same types of writing.
Payment methods are safe and secured through the use of a third-party processor. Neither FastEssay nor any writer ever has access to a customer’s financial information. Payments can be made by any major credit card.
Step 5: Additional Features and Discounts
Other than the blog and samples, we do not find any features that make this company stand out. And obviously, there are no discounts offered by the company. Again, you will pay whatever you can negotiate with your writer.
We have serious concerns about FastEssay.com. First, it is really operating as a job board and taking a commission on each finished product, paid out of the writers’ fees, of course. The company itself does not take an active role in seeing that writers are bidding on pieces they are really qualified to write. The testimonials that are posted on each writer’s profile are all positive, relatively anonymous, and cannot be verified. Quality of products depends on who a student chooses for a writer, and that can be very risky.
While Fast Essay is obviously a legal company, we would not recommend it. Overall, we have assigned a rating of 2 on a 5-point scale.
