There are plenty of reasons why students seek out custom writing services. For some, it is to alleviate the stress associated with writing essays and taking exams. For others, it is about wanting more time to spend with friends and family. But with so many companies out there, how is it possible to find a trustworthy company that will write plagiarism-free papers that get you good grades? Our job is to help you in your search for a reputable company. For this review, we are taking a look at DoMyWriting.com. See how they measure up against the rest of the custom writing industry.
Unlike many websites, DoMyWriting.com does not have a page dedicated to listing their services. However, if you take a look at their order form, you can find out what they offer by looking through their “type of paper” dropdown menu. They offer around 50 different services ranging from standard essays to dissertations, multiple choice questions, business plans, creative writing and admissions essays. They do not explicitly mention whether they are able to do article blogs, discussion board posts or case briefs. When we asked their support agents on live chat, they confirmed that they do provide these services, but the fact that we had to take the time to contact them to ask would seem to suggest that they are not particularly organized. Aside from writing services, they can also edit/proofread as well as format and rewrite papers.
Formats + Spacing & Number of Words per Page
DoMyWriting.com accepts orders regardless of formatting style, with APA, MLA, Chicago/Turabian and Harvard being the most common. They can handle requests for single and double-spaced papers. In addition, they count 275 words as a page.
The DoMyWriting.com website includes a price calculator that makes it easy to understand how much your paper will cost. Papers start at $10 for a high school paper with a 14-day deadline. This is a couple of dollars lower than the industry average. Factors that influence the cost of the paper include the academic level, length of the assignment, deadline and urgency. You can pay either via PayPal or major credit card, which are all secure option. However, they only seem to accept payments in US dollars, which is puzzling because it means students in the UK and EU have to look elsewhere for services.
DoMyWriting.com offers several free features that are pretty standard in the industry. They include a title page, bibliography, revisions and formatting.
They offer a 5% discount for all first time customers. Given that their prices are really low to begin with, it is probably not a surprise. They do not seem to offer any long-term loyalty discount program nor do they offer promo codes during holidays.
The process of ordering a paper from DoMyWriting.com is self explanatory. First, you click “Proceed to Order” and it takes you to the order page. Fill out all of the details of your order including the academic level, subject or discipline, topic, paper instructions, sources, any additional materials that need to be uploaded, and the required formatting style. Once you make a payment, they assign the paper to a writer. You have a chance to communicate directly with the writer throughout the process. Once the order is complete, they send you a draft to look at. If you like it, you can do whatever you wish with it. But if the writer fails to follow your directions, you can request free revisions. In addition, you are free to order an Abstract or VIP package.
Qualification of the Writer
DoMyWriting.com offers several types of writings based on your particular needs. Here is a breakdown:
- Best available
If the paper is not all that complex (such as high school or college-level intro classes) this is a good option.
This is the best option for college students taking advanced classes as well as Master’s and PhD candidates.
- ENL (English Native Language)
This is an option for customers who want high quality writing from a native English speaker.
- Preferred writer
If you have ever ordered a paper from their services before and liked the writer, you can rehire them for future orders.
Our Experience with the Site
In order to get the best idea about a company’s services, we took it upon ourselves to purchase a custom paper. We ordered a 10-page college-level paper with a 7-day deadline. The topic was to reflect on Civil Rights in the 1960s and the ways in which life has improved for minorities along with ways in which it could be better. It was a somewhat complex assignment that required some nuance, which was precisely why we requested it. While we did receive it by the deadline and it was not plagiarized, those are the only two good things we can report. The paper itself was absolutely not written by an “expert” of any sort. In fact, even though we specifically requested an ENL writer, he/she was obviously not. The content of the paper was way too simplistic. The writer made misguided assumptions that were not grounded in facts. There were even a few statements that were so unbelievable that we checked out the sources that they used. Sure enough, they either just made up the information and attributed it to the sources or they completely misunderstood what the articles were about. The bottom line: our paper was a complete joke.
Site Usability and Design + Grammar
The website was easy enough to navigate and with the exception of not containing much information about the services they provide, it is pretty informative. They even have pages dedicated to their Terms and Conditions as well as their revision policy. However, the grammar is something to be concerned about. For example, what does “Moneyback Warranties” mean? They are apparently making up their own expressions.
Support Team/Live Chat/Contacts
The customer support team at DoMyWriting.com is available 24/7 and can be contacted via live chat, phone or email address. We tested this out by contacting them through different methods at different points of the day and we need to admit that sometimes the response time took more than 30 minutes. Moreover, some of the agents came off as kind of rude. When we asked if our writer was legitimately ENL, they acted somewhat defensive. It would be nice to get some straight talk from time to time.
If a custom writing service wants to demonstrate trustworthiness, they need to offer transparent and well-defined policies. While we believe that DoMyWriting.com uses some deceptive practices or at the very least exaggerates what they are able to accomplish, we have absolutely no reason to believe they are a scam company. They do offer several guarantees that should give potential customers peace of mind.
Revision Policy/Availability of Free Revisions
DoMyWriting.com guarantees that their writers will fulfill the customer’s requirements and write papers in accordance with high academic standards. If the customer believes the paper was not written based on their directions, they have 10 days to request revisions. In our particular case, had we been students who needed to submit an actual order, we definitely would have made use of their revision policy.
Availability of a Plagiarism Report (for Each Paper)
As we noted, we can confirm that the paper we received did not contain any plagiarism. This is definitely a good indication that DoMyWriting.com really does check their papers. However, they charge $9.99 if you actually want a copy of the plagiarism report. Given that a lot of companies offer this for free, it really ought to be something that every customer is entitled to.
Money-Back Guarantee (Refund System)
The company offers full and partial refunds if the following situations occur:
- The customer accidentally pays twice for one order
- The company fails to find a suitable writer to complete the order
- The paper is not received by the deadline.
- The company fails to find a writer to carry out your revision request. The refund amount ranges from 15% to 50% depending on the circumstances.
- The quality of the paper is objectively poor.
- The paper is heavily plagiarized and evidence of this is presented.
Note that you have 10 days to request a refund, starting at the point when the deadline for the order expired.
Amount of Time in the Industry
Using Web Archive, we found that the service has existed since 2016. Relatively young companies need time to grow before they reach their full potential, which is probably why our paper was so bad.
Customer Feedback + Online Reputation
There was a lot of customer feedback on third-party review websites, with most of it very negative. Most of the comments are about the poor quality of the papers. In fairness, there are also a few positive reviews, most focusing on the fact that the papers were delivered by the deadline and did not contain plagiarism.
Pros and Cons
Based on the paper we received, we cannot recommend DoMyWriting.com to students. The paper was not written by an expert, much less a native English speaker. Here are the pros and cons to consider when making the final decision
Pros of DoMyWriting.com:
- Smooth ordering process
- Secure payment methods
- Free revision policy
- Money-Back guarantees
- Reasonable prices
- Generally competent customer support
Cons of DoMyWriting.com:
- Low discounts
- A poor list of services
- Inability to choose the currency

They helped me cope with all my problems. My order was assigned to one of their excellent writers. I have received 2:1 on the first and 1st Class on the second essay. I can not express all my emotions about this. Thank you.26 Nov 2018 at 08:25
The custom research paper was way more than I expected and I would recommend your research paper writing service to my friends.16 Oct 2018 at 06:23
I didn't expect that my essay would cost so much. The topic was pretty simple. The writer didn't have to do anything supernatural. I was satisfied with the result in the end. However, I think I'll search for another a bit cheaper service.11 Dec 2018 at 07:40
