What Gradesfixer Reviews Say
Based on 117 comments on review aggregators, Gradesfixer has a rating of 3.3 stars out of 5, indicating that most of the customers are satisfied with what the service provides them with. The small number of negative reviews cite writers misunderstanding the guidelines. Overall, with a 3.3 score, Grafesfixer is ranked 41th among essay writing services.
Upon registering, you can get access to over 16,000 essay samples on various topics. Also, you have more than 200 writers to hire. As the website claims, most of them have Ph.D. degrees. Everything seems more or less legit at first glance. Sitejabber has only three 0-star reviews. That’s already an impressive feat for any online essay service. So, we decided to investigate Gradesfixer to see if you can safely delegate your academic writing chores to its team.
Our Verdict: Will Gradesfixer Fix Your Grades?
The service has been around for some time, but it’s hard to determine when exactly it was launched. Based on the oldest reviews on Sitejabber, Gradesfixer was launched either in the late 2010s or in 2020, which indicates that the service is quite fresh. It may seem to be a turn-off, but when it comes to online writing services, we all know too well that longevity is not always a sign of quality.
Most comments are positive. There is no negative feedback regarding late delivery, customer support service, or quality of papers. However, you may find several negative reviews stating that writers misunderstand instructions. It looks like there’s nothing to investigate. But hey, when something seems too good to be true, it’s worth checking out.
Some things may work as red flags when you enter the website. For example, the service greets you with ratings from several review sites, and the first one is — Gradesfixer. An honest designer’s mistake? Given that the site is rather fresh, it could be. Anyway, it’s better to only make conclusions after we receive the ordered essay.
Our Thorough Analysis of the Gradesfixer Website
When you enter the Gradesfixer’s website, you may get the feeling that it is a little bit dated. Yes, nothing seems to be extremely interactive or fresh. However, you don’t get lost navigating it. The service provides you with information on what you can get from it: essay samples, custom writing, editing, and writing tools that include title, citation, and conclusion generators, as well as a plagiarism checker.
Scroll down a bit, and you can check out the free essay samples based on the topic. You can read the sample in full, but you cannot copy it unless you are a registered user. And you shouldn’t copy it, considering the fact that any plagiarism checker will inevitably lead to Gradesfixer. Still, if you are lost on how to start writing a paper on this or that topic, those samples can come in handy.
Given that we cannot limit our Gradesfixer review to the free samples on the website, we’ve explored other key aspects of the service as well.
What About the Customer Support Team?
As we’ve already mentioned, when you check Gradesfixer reviews, you won’t find complaints about customer support service. That seemed like a blessing, considering the number of rude agents and even rude chatbots we’ve encountered reviewing this or that essay writing service. But we needed to check it anyway.
When you enter the Gradesfixer website, you will find a message icon in the lower left corner. Click on it, and you will be able to communicate with customer support. In our case, Josel replied within less than a minute. Josel started the conversation by explaining what services the site provides and asked us if that was something that we were looking for.
We inquired whether someone at the service would help us with our topic. Josel said they had experts in the required field and emphatically suggested we place an order. Well, it’s quite helpful on the one hand but way too pushy on the other. Maybe most users are okay with that type of communication, but it looked like the team was forcing us to place the order.
What Can Be Said About Writers?
Is Gradesfixer legit? To answer this question, you should first check out the writers. The service claims to have more than 1,500 writers. It also claims that most authors working for it have Ph.D. degrees.
No, we can’t go into checking the background of each and every writer. However, we must say that for a service that tries to hide something or swindle its users, Gradesfixer provides us with too much information on writers. You can check their bios and the reviews of past customers. And the service doesn’t try to clean out some negative reviews.
We’ve chosen our writer “Professor Paige” based on her versatility in terms of subjects. Yet, looks like this writer is not an expert in cinema. They provided quite a fresh look at our topic; however, the essay turned out to be lacking an in-depth perspective necessary for a university level. Moreover, it wasn’t 100% unique. But more on that later.
Prices, Discounts, & Refund Policy
If you check out the 0-star Gradesfixer reviews on Sitejabber, you will run into one claiming that the prices increase when you refresh the screen. Nothing like that happened when we were investigating the service simply because the platform doesn’t have fixed prices. Gradesfixer works based on writers’ bids.
The only type of fixed Gradesfixer price that you can encounter is when you opt for service picking up the best writer based on your requirements. The option will cost you $9.99 + $13.99 per page. But mind that if you opt for “gold” or “platinum” writers, it will be 10% or 20% added to the final price.
We needed a 4,000-word essay on “Influence of German Expressionist Cinema on Horror Films of the Past 100 Years,” which is 15 pages. Based on the average bids, the per-page price for our order was ranging between $15 and $23. The rate is higher than most essay writing services we reviewed offer. So, the platform is not tailored to the typical student budget.
We weren’t able to find any information on discounts, but there’s a referral program that allows you to earn $25 on every friend whom you convince to use this service.
As for the refund, you can get your money back within 72 hours if the paper doesn’t correspond to the initial instructions.
Everything is plain and simple when it comes to revisions on gradesfixer.com. The only problem is that you have to scroll down the Terms & Conditions to find any information on it. The best option here would be to press Ctrl or Command + F and type in “revisions.”
Based on what you can find in the Terms & Conditions, it becomes clear that revisions pretty much depend on your communication with the writer. The writer shows you parts of the writing, and you decide whether the revisions are required. But what do you do when you figure out that something is wrong with the paper after you paid for it? You still have time to request revisions even after you release the funds.
You can request free revisions within 14 days after the purchase if your paper is less than 10 pages long. In case your paper is longer than 10 pages, you can request revisions within a month after the release of funds. And if you are past the timeframe, you have to make a different order for the paper to be revised, which will cost you extra.
We didn’t find a single Grades Fixer review with complaints about the service missing the deadline. And in our case, the paper was ready before the deadline. But we weren’t in a hurry and opted for the deadline that you get automatically in the submission form — ten days. Apparently, ten days is the minimum deadline for average academic papers.
If you want the paper urgently, the minimum deadline is six hours. However, you must be ready that the deadline affects the price. And the number of pages affects the deadline and the price, too. You can’t expect a ten-page-long essay to be done within a six-hour frame. Not that it’s impossible, but it will surely cost you a fortune.
When you are dealing with more serious academic writing, like a dissertation or thesis, the minimum deadline is two months. Gladly, we had a paper of just fifteen pages, and ten days was more than enough to accomplish it. Our writer of choice managed to finish the paper in a week.
What Can Be Said About Gradesfixer Plagiarism?
What is the most important aspect of every review? Answering the question: is Gradesfixer plagiarism free?
Everything seemed too good to be true. The plagiarism checker is free. If you want a report, you don’t have to pay extra for it. We requested a plagiarism report, and it stated that the paper didn’t contain plagiarized materials. However, it’s never enough when you’re investigating an online essay writing service. So, we ran our paper through several plagiarism checkers.
The results disappointed us a bit. While even the most picky checkers didn’t show us more than 11% of plagiarized material, it was far from perfect. Surely, “Professor Paige” did use external sources for our paper. And instead of copying the sentences or passages, they wrote on their own mostly. Yet, there were several instances where our writer simply ripped off sentences from other works on the said subject. The 11% is not critical, but it’s possible to write without using sentences from source materials.
The Pros and Cons of Using Gradesfixer
The platform is clear in describing what it provides; however, the Terms & Conditions section is rather confusing. The support service is quite helpful yet pushy, and the writers are decent, but we expected to get a more refined and original paper. The main downside of the platform is that you don’t know the price until you place the order, and Gradesfixer cost can disappoint certain users.
