Papersowl is one of those odd companies that seem to charge way more than other essay writing companies. Unfortunately, they cannot match the promised quality and do not fight plagiarism issues that have been encountered by our review team both with our essay request and the free samples that they provide. We have also noticed fake writers, which is a serious issue to consider if you want to get your paper written by an English native with relevant skills. We do not recommend this company even though it could have been good if they paid attention to their writers’ selection.

This time we are going to write about an academic writing service that promises to provide all kinds of essay and dissertation writing, which is what we are planning to test in our PapersOwl review. It took us some time to discover that they also offer free essay samples without any subscription matters. For some unknown reason, it was hidden in their “Services” menu part. However, what we were after is an original essay sampling and their pricing scheme.

Essay and Paper Samples

They have a nice selection of samples but it lacks good categorization and some of them belong to odd categories like “writing”. Speaking of general quality, it is unclear as to where these samples have originated from since they lack any proofreading or even academic writing style.

Access: Free Subscription. It won’t let you copy any file but you have an option of downloading full essays without registering if you want to pass this offer.
Samples Originality: Plagiarized. We do not recommend downloading any of these samples or copying directly since anyone can use some part of it and bring you into plagiarism risk.


Sample Analysis Evaluation

Since no other Paperowl review online mentions anything about their essay samples, it would be sufficient to say that this company claims to have collected over 900,000 samples. Still unclear as to whether students have been notified about their works being freely available online. The general quality of each sample is so low that it makes an impression that it all has been collected elsewhere.

Negative Side-Effects of Free Speech

Category: Culture
Wordcount: 2009

It is a bit unclear as to how this Papers owl sample paper falls under the category of culture since it would be correct to place it under Political Sciences. The paper has a weak introduction that lets people guess that it tells about the United States, which becomes evident as one browses through this paper’s second paragraph. Essay’s thesis statement does not contain an argument and refers to an unidentified primary right without explanation or any proper reference. Sample’s lack of quotes makes it relatively weak.


African-Americans in the Play Fences

Category: Law
Wordcount: 1043

Once again, we have a perfect example of an essay that has been placed in the wrong category since it deals with a book or a play review. It uses colloquial language and lacks proper proofreading. For example, an introduction sentence uses “just simply” phrase, which is not right for college-level writing as such expressions must be ruled out. In terms of structure and grammar, it has numerous repetitions with no book quotes or references.


War is not Part of Human Nature

Category: Psychology
Wordcount: 509

It becomes unclear as to what our author is talking about even after taking some time to analyze this poor essay sample. It starts with an odd assumption that war can be perceived as something joyous, yet by who? Who is our target category? Most likely, this paper talks about various book or poetic references. This sample has no clear structure, which makes all quotes appear out of place. Taking a further look, we can assume that this essay is about Siegfried Sassoon’s poem called “Suicide in Trenches”. Serious proofreading and structure issues make this a collection of ideas that have little or no link in between.


A Critical Analysis of Harrison Bergeron

Category: Writing
Wordcount: 791

It is definitely the strangest Owl essay that we have encountered by looking through their vast sample database. Placed under some odd “Writing” category, it becomes clear that it is some sort of writing, indeed. Starting an academic paper with “I decided to write my analysis” sounds like a high-school student with poor English skills. While this sample has good ideas and a relatively good plagiarism report, it cannot even be used as a sample. This sample lacks proper referencing and structure. No topic sentences or thesis make it unacceptable even for high-school standards, let alone colleges.

PapersOwl has a nice webpage that looks quite appealing and has a pleasant color scheme. However, it took us some time to discover that they have free essay samples. Speaking of navigation, it would be nice if they could say at least a sentence about their free offers somewhere on the site’s main page.

Prices Overview

It appears that PapersOwl belongs to expensive services as it starts from $20 per page or $30 per page of their recommended Premium package, which means that your essay writer will have at least some undergraduate-level skills. They also have a “Platinum” level for dissertations but it is quite risky to pay $300 for your 10 pages undergraduate research when you must deal with unreliable writers as we could find out judging by our personal experience and negative PapersOwl reviews written by other users online. While we did not encounter serious plagiarism issues, some other reliability aspects have made us concerned.

Writing Services and Assistance

Judging by the website, they offer essays, dissertations, coursework, thesis statement writing, online college homework help, various editing types, and proofreading. Unfortunately, it has not been the case with our custom order, considering the $22 per page price after the bidding for the best price.

Prices: One page starts from $20. They have a “Premium” feature, which means that your paper’s quality will be better. Be ready to pay up to $30 per page. We could not find any discounts or campaigns.

Payment options: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, and Union Pay.

Delivery time and deadlines: Paper owls promise up to 3-hour delivery but our order was six hours late.

Revision policy and refunds: We have requested a revision as we were told that it will last for 7 days, yet we have not received a reply. As for refunds, things are quite problematic and may take you weeks before they decide to refund you.

Confidentiality and Guarantees: Since they post various essays online, confidentiality matters must be checked twice.

Writers: You can choose a writer and read through their profiles but they are not real since the same pictures can be easily found online at websites that do not have anything related to essay writing.

Writers' Team

Let’s take professor Wins as an example:


This profile has numerous style and grammar mistakes in addition to a fake picture and no academic credentials. Navigating to, we can see:


Numerous Paperowl reviews online have complained about fake user profiles in the past, which places this company on the same negative list as Eduzaurus and Gradesfixer. The worst part is the bidding process, which lets writers offer you a custom price. However, this decrease is only $1-2 less and reminds of the bidding process at EduBirdie where writers of doubtful origin provide you with a “better” price.

Quality of papers: Speaking of our custom order, we have received a rather expensive paper that was delivered late and contained no References page or proper formatting. The paper lacked proofreading and our thesis statement has been too weak and out of place. Even though we have chosen “Premium” quality, our sample lacked proper editing or good sources. The other users online often complain that Papers owl essay writing often contains plagiarized content. Although we did not encounter this issue with our paper, one must be twice more careful, considering their fake writers’ profiles. There is no transparency in terms of their background as well.

Customer support: They have nice and helpful customer support that will guide you through any concerns. Still, once you have placed your order and complain about inconsistencies, they are not much help and ask you to wait for the QA department to rule their final decision.

Helpful Tools for Students

Unfortunately, we could not find any free or paid tools at the PaperOwl website, which is a serious omission considering their extensive list of essays that can be downloaded free of charge. Perhaps, the team behind this service decided to focus on essay writing or their list of papers. Still, it would be helpful to include a plagiarism detection tool since plagiarism is an issue with at least half of their samples that may have not been approved by the original authors. Such an attitude depicts PapersOwl in a negative light, which makes any cooperating or requesting an essay from them a risky business.

Online Reputation of PapersOwl

The online reputation of the company contains enough negative reviews. Starting with complaints at TrustPilot:

I’ll tell you this: it’s great when you’re having fun and relaxing, and the professionals are carrying out your educational plan.

The quality wants to be better. There were errors with the graphics in the presentation (the description did not match the values shown in the graph). It’s fair to say that the author corrected himself!

One more edubirdie clone that sucks and does not deserve your money. Everything on the website they write is fake – no guarantees, no revisions, they simply do not care about anything they except money and try to make you get as more additional features as possible. Why should they pay for vip support?? So you treat good only those people who pay you for it? Mind blowing. I hate you
