Try now has been in business for at least a few years now, although we are not certain exactly for how long. We have found customer reviews off-site going back three years. StudyBay has a business model of “approved” writers who are free to bid on student orders and to be selected for a project by students based upon their bids. In reviewing this company, we have looked at its website content, at testimonials published on that site, at the writers’ information, at the process for becoming a writer, and at the policies governing both students and writers. Our Study Bay review is the following.


The company offers academic writing of any type and at any academic level, through its contracted writers – writers who view orders and bid on them. Student place an order, put it up for “auction,” receive bids, and then select a writer. There is a system in place for students to converse with their writers during the process. The student pays for the order up front, but the money is not released to the writer until the student has approved of the final draft. Students have 20 days to request revisions from their writers – what the site calls its “warranty.” states that it also checks each finished product for plagiarism.

Customer Protection/Security

The site states that personal and financial information is secured and protected. It does not reveal this information to the writers who bid on projects. That control, however, leaves the company, once a student and writer are put into personal contact. Should either decide to reveal their personal information, there is no control. Most writing services filter messaging between writer and student through an online account that the student has.

Security of financial information appears to be in place at Study Bay. We placed an order and enjoyed a secure payment process through PayPal.


There are no StudyBay standard prices. Once students place orders, they are placed on a “job board” for bids from writers. If there are any discounts, they would have to be negotiated between student and writer. And, of course there are no coupon codes or any type of promo code for new customers.

Prices are bid by writers, and students are then free to select from among those bids. While this may seem to be attractive, students should not be lured by the cheapest price offer. Sometimes, those who offer the cheapest bids do so because they do not have much work. This may be because they are not the best researchers/writers.

Customer Service

We placed an order for an 8-page research paper in the field of political science. We received a large number of bids, and ultimately selected a writer in the medium-price range. Unfortunately, we were not able to contact the company customer support for answers to questions.

When we received our final draft, there were a number of structural and grammatical errors. We suspected that the writer’s credentials were not valid – a Master’s from Columbia University. We suspected that we had an ESL writer.

When we requested revisions, we did get them. Unfortunately, they were not good, and the paper was still not appropriate for submission at the college level.

We can say that is not a fraud or scam. Our issue is with the quality of writing.

We were also unable to find an Essay Bay BBB membership.


Looking at pros & cons, we have to insert some final comments. The biggest issue is that there is little-to-no company control over which writers bid on which orders. The “job board” is large, and any writer with any background can bid. We applied to be a writer, and there was no checking of our credentials at all. This is worrisome. We are applying a rating of “Fair.”

Checklist Review of Studybay

Joshua reviewed

They worked on their website design but I wish they had done the same with their authors who badly need to be checked on their education and experience in writing. For now, they seem to be on the same level as school leavers. That`s definitely not what I expected when ordered a Master`s essay on Sociology which required research and knowledge of various methods of working on academic papers.

Avery reviewed

Their customer-oriented approach is in a league of its own. Before you order anything their support members describe their amazing service and professional writers, email you and even call. After receiving the order, they start ignoring you totally and finally send an essay when there is no time to rewrite it or at least edit. As a result, I have “D” for a coursework. Not the most pleasant thing happened to me.

Jayden reviewed

I like how your website is organized, everything is intuitively understandable, easy to find and takes minutes to fill out. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about other features of this service. The promised direct communication with the writer wasn’t an option for me and therefore I couldn’t explain exactly what I needed. The paper turned out to be shallow and poorly-written.

The paper I received from Study Bay is a total nonsense or a bad joke from their writer. Who can possibly deliver an essay with 35% plagiarism? Okay, you have normal prices for your services. But why are your services so bad?? Don`t waste your time on them people!
