Pricing varies depending on four factors: the number of words you want to be edited, how fast you want your document returned, your education level, and the type of service.

How many words do you want to be edited? Scribbr won’t charge you for a full document. You select what you want to be edited and only pay for that amount.

A document can be returned in 24 hours, three days, or one week. The longer the deadline, the lower the cost. Editors are available 365 days a year, including weekends and holidays.

Scribbr offers two education level options: university/college and Ph.D./MBA.

Proofreading and editing is the default service. Structure Checks and Clarity Checks are add-ons and increase the price of the order.

A condition for this is that the customer must request this refund before the results of the Plagiarism check are communicated to him/her.
