StandoutEssay.com has a great website that is navigated easily for all information one might want. Contact information is given in several places, costs are clear, and the order form is carefully laid out for easy completion of all fields. Each customer gets a personal page and can use it to communicate and receive orders as they are completed. Payment methods are secure and standard, including major credit cards, PayPal, wire transfer and others.
The cost differentials are like those of other services, and depend upon type of work, academic level and the urgency of the deadline. Customers can expect to pay between $16.50 and $35.50 per page accordingly. There are discounts in place for returning customers, up to 15% once a customer reaches a total of 255 pages. If there are questions about pricing, the site says to contact them directly.
There are all standard methods of contact with the company. These include telephone, email, live chat and messaging on one’s order page. When we attempted to telephone the support department, we were only able to leave a voicemail, and the calls were not returned. Live chat worked but very slowly, and the operators did not seem to be fully trained to answer our questions. The wait for responses was lengthy. Once we had our customer page, we attempted to message the writer but did not get a response. We were notified both on our account page and through email when the order was ready and we were able to access it easily through the account page.
The order was completed on time but was not of a quality level we expected for the price. There were both grammatical and formatting errors, and we requested a revision. The same writer completed the revision, giving a very minimal level of correction. The paper would not be worthy of a superior grade, which is promised. If a customer requests a different writer for revisions, it will take 24 hours.

Our experience was mixed; customer service needs improvement, and writers should be more responsive and detail-oriented. Writing is reflective of sloppy and rushed work.
