Introduction describes its origin as a local studio focused on dissertations that grew over 12 years to a global service that offers assistance with all types of academic work including writing, editing, lab work, and math as well as admissions and resume writing.

Full story

The PayForEssay website has been operating since January 2013, but the site lists 12 years of experience with professional academic writing. In that time, they have grown from a small, local dissertation assistance service to a global web service with nearly 1,000 writers signed up in its current form and almost 200,000 customers served over the site's lifetime. The site's parent company is based in Cyprus, but it is not specifically stated where the site's support team or other staff are located.

How it works

PayForEssay uses an up-front payment system in which the client fills out an order form with all the relevant details and any specific instructions or attachments that might help achieve the desired outcome. From there, after payment is submitted, a number of writers are made available to the client who may choose one to work on their order.

The site has a real-time interface once an order is underway, allowing the client and writer to communicate via live chat. The client is also able to watch the work proceed on their order. If there is some issue, PayForEssay advertises a 24/7 support team that can be reached by phone, email, Facebook messenger, or on-site live chat.


Like many similar services, the core pricing for PayForEssay is determined by page count, deadline, and academic level selected. Their order form has a variety of service types other than writing that each have their own payment structure, some with different academic level options or alternate units to page count.

Each order may also includes a number of optional add-ons that increase the price by either a fixed amount or percentage, depending on the add-on. For example, requesting a top writer is a percentage increase while marking your order as high priority is a fixed upgrade and having your order double-checked for quality is simply identified as an "extra charge."


PayForEssay offers an extensive list of service options ranging from academic writing to job application packages to math or science coursework to graphic work like posters or PowerPoint presentations. Not all of their services are academic in nature, such as personal statements or copywriting, but most are.
