The name of this service speaks for itself: it’s mostly focused on delivering papers for cheap prices. As soon as we saw such a claim, we had one main question on our minds: is Affordable Papers legit? At first sight, it seemed pretty cool. The website is detailed, although it takes a bit of effort to find the info you need. The quality of the sample we received was below average, but that’s what you get for the cheapest price.

Criteria #1: Range of Writing Services Offered (Mark - 17/20)

In the menu featured at the homepage, we could easily see that the company offered the most frequently-requested types of papers for students: assignments, essays, term papers, book reports, book reviews, research papers, speeches, theses, case studies, dissertations, coursework, and homework.

When we accessed the pricing section, we saw few other services in the dropdown menu: capstone project, research proposal, business plan, and admission essay. There is some space for improvement in this list. For example, Affordable Papers doesn’t offer programming assignments, statistics projects, lab reports, and few other types of content that students need.

Criteria #2: Pricing, Discounts & Payment Policy (Mark - 15/20)

The prices are pretty low – they start from $9 and go up to $32, depending on the deadline and quality level you choose for the essay. We noticed that the shortest deadline was 8 hours, so this is not the right choice of service for students who need extremely urgent essays. There are three academic levels available at this site: School, College, and University. prices

Unfortunately, there is no discount code for first-time users and returning customers. When we take that fact into consideration, this service is not much cheaper than other companies that offer slightly higher quotes, but reduce the final price with discounts. Still, the prices at are reasonably low.

Criteria #3: Quality Evaluation (Mark - 11/20)

We’ll be honest with you: we did not expect impressive quality given the fact that the word affordable was mentioned numerous times at the website. This company doesn’t emphasize quality; it gets attention to the claims for cheap prices.

We ordered an essay from the area of marketing. The paper wasn’t too bad, but it was too general. The writer did not produce clear, convincing arguments to prove the thesis statement. In fact, there wasn’t a clear thesis statement, to begin with. The paper wasn’t a disaster, but we think that a student who pays for a paper should always get a little more.

Criteria #4: Customer Support (Mark - 14/20)

Before we could access the live chat feature, we had to complete a simple form that asked whether you’re an existing customer or a visitor and then required us to select a question type. That’ wasn’t too bad since we immediately accessed the live chat and started talking to a representative. She informed us that there were no hidden payments and we placed the order.

Unfortunately, the customer support wasn’t that accessible while we were waiting for the paper. They just kept saying “the writer is working on it, please be patient.”

Criteria #5: Customers Reviews (Mark - 12/20)


“I won’t lie. I chose AffordablePapers for the price. I didn’t even check the prices at other websites. This one said it was affordable, so I was silly enough to believe that. As it turns out, the quotes at other websites are not that high. Let me tell you about the research paper I received. It was too basic. Maybe a high school student will be happy with it. But I’m a college sophomore and this was not to my level.”


“The price is low, but the quality is not high.”

Johnes L.:

“I requested a 3-page essay with a deadline of 5 days, but the writer was late. That wasn’t too bad because I got a small refund and a promise to get the paper the next day. The writer completed the paper, but it lacked support and there weren’t any references in it. There wasn’t time for revisions and I had to submit that paper as it was. My teacher was not impressed.”


Pay 10 dollars more and pick a better service – that’s my advice to all.”

  • Price calculator.

Conclusion: The quality of the sample we received was below average, but that’s what you get for the cheapest price.

    Keep away from these guys! Guaranteed headache and poorly completed assignments - this is what you will get.

  2. Kolyn03:41

    It's never the same twice. I've got an excellent paper.

  3. Kevin06:50

    I spent over 100 USD on my paper and had got poor quality work with lack of arguments. There were a lot of grammar mistakes I needed to correct myself. Poor quality service I think.

  4. Melani00:03

    I was not able to receive full paper I have ordered from Affordable paper. It was half done and have not passed plagiarism check. At the end, I am waiting for the refund from them.

  5. Herman09:50

    I love these guys!

  6. Anonymous06:37

    Gave them the list of links to use in research and they even have not followed that!! They have high prices and poor quality. I don't recommend it to anyone.!!!((

  7. AnoN08:39

    I have been working with this company for a long time and have GOT ALMOST ALL MY PAPERS of needed quality. There were several occasions when I needed to fix some grammar mistakes, but overall nice service.

  8. Anonym02:08

    They call themselves “AffordablePapers”. Ok, I agree the price is affordable. But where’s the quality they promise? It feels totally unjust to ask for money, even if it’s not that expensive, and then don’t deliver on your quality promises. GRAMMAR MISTAKES OMG, what kind of this writing service is this? I’m better off hiring a 5$ writer and I bet he’s gonna do a better job than these guys did.

    I expected to get a better grade…I actually got a C on my paper…and I went to the professor and asked him why…what was wrong? He gave me enough reasons for which my essay wasn’t a professional one, so I won’t order again, and I left this review to show you guys that it’s not worth ordering from here..good luck finding other services!

  10. Anonymous06:58

    I hate that they don’t maintain a good communication as they promise.

    Yes, the chat is available 24/7 on their page, but sometimes no one is there lol
    exactly when you need them the most…bad experience mates, bad experience.

  11. Anonymous04:49

    I am not pleased with what they gave me. I looked over my dissertation (that’s a big deal for me you know)…and I don’t feel that I can turn it in like this…wasted money

  12. Anonymous05:27

    My writer specified a certain date for the turn around time….I received it one week later…imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t give turn in my assignment on time…I lost money, and I got a penalty on school. WORST service ever.
