Studybay is a bidding-system marketplace that identifies itself as an online academic exchange platform between those who need help with their writing projects and those who can provide such help.

Full story

The StudyBay website has been active since May 2015. They are operated by a Malta-based company, but focus on English-speaking writing services as well as some non-writing services. These other offerings include math assignments, coding, and a generic "non-word assignments" category. Since StudyBay uses a bidding system, see more about this below, clients have an opportunity to view writer ratings and profiles before selecting one to work on their order.

How it works

The ordering process for new StudyBay clients begins by simply typing in a title for your project, selecting a project type such as essay or lab report, and entering your email. This takes the user to the client dashboard, a personal account page where bids from writers appear even before more order details are offered. From here it is possible to edit the order and add detailed instructions, modify the desired word count (they do not use page count), and attach files.

Once the order details are submitted and a bid accepted, the client will be asked to submit payment. From here there is a chat interface through which the client and writer can communicate. After an order is complete, the client can download the document and rate the writer. There is also a fixed "warranty" period for 20 days after the completed draft is submitted by the writer. The writer is not actually paid until the end of this warranty period and this is the time for the client to request any revisions.


Because StudyBay uses a bidding system, prices are not fixed ahead of a client accepting a bid. It is possible for a client to set a desired price for their order, either based on the order form's suggestion or based on their own judgement, or the price can be left blank, allowing writers to suggest a price. It is also possible to pay more for a featured order which, according to the site's claims, doubles the number of offers a client will receive.


StudyBay primarily offers academic writing services, but they have a few extra services listed as well. They also offer coding, PowerPoint presentations, math assignments, lab reports, business plans, and a general "non-word assignment" category.

Refund policy

What happens if you are unhappy with writing services from and want your money back? We looked for a clear refund policy page and found the following.


Yes, this writing service has a refund policy.

"Keep in mind that it is only possible to request a refund for your order while it is UNDER WARRANTY. Your warranty starts when your writer uploads the final version of your assignment and lasts for 20 days by default. If your order is still in progress or has been already completed, you won't have an option to request a refund, though in the first case all you need to do is to wait until your writer submits the final file."

Other useful information

Clients are able to indicate how much of a refund they wish to receive, though this is limited to the amount that would have been sent to the writer. If the full amount is refunded, StudyBay will also refund the service fee, but if the client receives only a partial refund, StudyBay keeps the service fee.
