Academized.com offers a huge amount of different content, even though their visitors do not need most of it. It would probably take hours to read all the text squeezed into their website and the same content reappears on different pages. What can be useful, though, is the page with Academized.com customers’ reviews. Instead of wasting a couple hours on studying the reputation of Academized.com to understand if their services are a worthwhile investment, check out the review that we have written after trying their services ourselves.
The list of services is quite extensive although not as long as you can see on the websites of other companies. In particular, Academized.com offers help with such types of academic writing as admission essays, research papers, theses and dissertations, as well as editing and proofreading. Apart from that, Academized.com claim that they can assist in solving Math problems and completing assignments in science. We think it is highly unlikely that one company can specialize in such a variety of fields. From our experience, companies can help only with writing assignments, so we would not risk to order their Science-help service. Moreover, the extensive variety of different services leaves us wondering whether their writers are professional in content writing.
Spacing, Number of Words per Page and Formats
One page is equal to 275 words double spaced. Writers can format your paper according to a number of formatting styles, including MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard, etc.
Academized.com sets acceptable prices. For example, for one double-spaced page (275 words), high-school level with the deadline of 14 days a customer will have to pay $12.99. If this deadline seems too long, choose 10 days instead but be prepared to pay more ($15.99 for the same paper). The highest price is $41.99, which means that the paper can be delivered as soon as after 3 hours. We thought that shorter deadline also means that the quality of paper will be better because it does not make sense to increase the price so much only because of the deadline. However, a customer can order any type of paper, be it a simple essay or a dissertation chapter, to be written within short time span and this seems highly suspicious.
When ordering on this website, customers get limitless revisions, formatting service, outline, bibliography page, and title page for free. They say these free features can help customers save up to $71 but most of writing companies offer this service free of charge, as well.
Most of the discounts (up to 15%) are for their loyal customers. The type of the discount depends on the total number of pages ordered until some particular time.
There are also discounts for the first-time customers. To get it, you have to use the discount code while placing the order. Customers’ reviews taught us that the 15% discount is not always available but newcomers can always use special offers. Their loyalty program offers 5%, 10%, and 15% off the price, which is a good option for those who plan to stay with Academized.com for a long time.
It will not take much of your time to place an order. In fact, all you have to do is include the requirements, namely the type of work that you need, the length of the paper, delivery date, formatting style, etc. Additionally, customers are encouraged to share more details about their expected papers in the order form and include any available readings or materials that have to be used during the writing process. Customers have to make the payment afterwards. There are also additional services for those who are prepared to pay additional fee:
- Writer Level
Best Available – among the available writers they will choose the best and the most suitable for your order. This option is free.
Premium – the best expert for your project will be assigned for additional 25% to the price
Top 10 – the order will be written by one of the top-10 writers if you pay additional 30%
Originality Report – although they claim that every paper written by their writers is checked for plagiarism, customers can order additional check, which will cost $21.99
Proofread by Editor – the order will be proofread and edited by a professional editor for $11.00
One-Page Summary – a short summary of an extended research paper will be written for additional $26.99

Advanced - your order has an assigned support manager who coordinates the process for $5.99
Premium - for $9.99 a customer can get a personal assistant who will be monitoring and controlling the writing process.
Our Experience with the Company
The best way to check the quality of services of a writing agency is to order from them. We placed an order in hope that Academized.com will assign one of their most qualified writers. Right after we made the order, we received an e-mail with the details. We chose the highest rates to test the quality.
We were really sorry to find out that the templates on their websites are misleading because the actual quality they provide is much worse. Our essay was nowhere near as good as the ones we saw on their Samples list. We are not sure if these were us who got extremely unlucky or if they deliver such content all the time but the paper we received was written by a writer who has awful English writing skills. Judging from what other people say about their services, we assume that we were not the only disappointed customers.
We were not satisfied with the result and we would never get a high grade for such a paper.
Qualification of the Writers
Our attempts to contact the writer working on our order were not successful. As we predicted, the lack of communication affected the quality of services. The paper did not follow our requirements and was replete with mistakes, so we were not satisfied with what we got.
Although there were no serious grammar mistakes, some phrases were not typical for modern English, so we assumed that our writer was not a proficient English speaker. The paper was not structured and the quality of the content left much to be desired.
Website Usability and Design & Grammar
The homepage of Academized.com creates the impression of a client-centered company. The welcome page is calm and discreet. The order form is conveniently located in the right corner of the homepage within the visitor’s reach and can be quickly filled in to get the total price. The homepage lists the services and the advantages of the company. However, this page provides only some general information and to find out the details, such as prices, terms, or other customers’ feedback, you will have to explore the whole website. The types of papers they produce is listed on the Service tab. To find out how much a paper costs and how long it takes to compete it, go to Prices. The first-time customers can get some freebies but they have to know about them before placing an order. The Samples tab contains sample essays and their detailed description, including their price, formatting style used, writing level, etc. This information can be useful for those who would like to understand what writing level to expect when placing a particular order. As we have mentioned, the samples can be misleading because the papers that customers receive differ from those on Samples tab. Reviews tab is the place to look for customers’ feedback but we are not sure if this information is reliable. There is also live chat which customers can use to ask questions and receive answers immediately.
Summing it all up, the website is not really user-friendly because visitors have to spend much time before they find the information they need. There is much content on the website but most of it is irrelevant.
Support Team/Live Chat/Contacts
Having carefully analyzed the website, we began to wonder how customers can contact Academized.com if they have some questions. On their website, they provide a phone number but the response rate is very slow. The same is with the Live Chat because we had to wait for a long time before we received a reply form an agent.
On the bright side, Academized.com can be easily reached via emails. A pleasant customer support agent quickly replied to our email. He/she was very approachable and answered all our questions, so we managed to receive all the necessary details. So if you would like to contact Academized.com, do not waste time on phone calls and live chat and send an email right away.
Before placing an order, study their terms and conditions, as well as their refund policy. The information can be found on a separate page.
Revision Policy and Free Revisions
Customers can benefit from free revision option available within 14 days after the order was completed. Should a customer need a revision after this period, he/she will have to pay for it and the price depends on the complexity of revision.
Free revision is possible only if the initial requirements were not met, so if a customer wants the writer to add something that was not mentioned in the order description, the company might ask him/her to make an additional payment.
Money-Back Guarantee and Refund System Policy
There is a money-back guarantee which means that customers can expect reimbursement in the following cases:
- Cancellation of the Order
When cancelling the order before a writer has been assigned, customers can receive 100% refund.
If a writer has been assigned, a customer cannot receive more than 70% compensation because the writer has to be paid for the work he/she has done so far.
If a writer has been assigned to an order and the customer decides to cancel it after 50% of the deadline has passed, the customer can expect 50% compensation.
- Late Delivery
If the product is delivered with a delay, the customer will get a Time Delivery Difference Compensation. This compensation is calculated differently for every order because it depends on the deadline and the duration of the delay.
The compensation for long-term orders (14 days or more) is 7%.
Keep in mind that you will not receive the refund there and then. If you need a refund, contact the Support Team within two months after the paper was delivered.
Experience and Time in the Industry
They do not state this information on their website so we did additional research and discovered that they appeared in 2016. While doing our research, we came across a shocking number of negative reviews. In most cases, customers complained that the quality of papers was unsatisfactory. To be honest, we have never seen so many negative reviews.
Pros and Cons
Our experience was negative so we do not recommend Academized.com
- acceptable prices
- attractive discounts
- free features
- clear policies
- unsatisfactory quality of services
- inability to quickly contact customer support

I didn't expect high-quality for the paper with a short deadline. They delivered my essay within a couple of hours. Unfortunately, it was plagiarised. Guys, if you can't do this properly, please, stop deceiving people.10 Jan 2019 at 09:11
I doubt in their writer's qualification. First, I haven't opportunity to contact him directly. Second, he didn't show much professionalism and knowledge in my paper.07 Jan 2019 at 12:24
I also used this service. Yes, the quality wasn't one of the best but it worked fine with me. My professor knows that I am bad at writing, so he didn't notice that the paper was written by someone else.16 Dec 2018 at 09:36
