How Much Does it Cost to Write my Essay?

The starting cost of an essay writing service can range between $55 and $60 per page

The factors that affect the price are:

  • Level of education
  • Number of pages
  • Spacing
  • Time until deadline

In this blog post, you’ll find more information on why each of these factor impact the cost of your paper and what else this essay writing service includes.

You can also find this information in our video:

This guide was created to help you clearly understand how the pricing for our essay service works if you are an undergrad or graduate student.

6 Factors That Affect Gradehacker's Pricing

Sometimes cheap essays can cost you a bad grade, which is worse than paying a few extra bucks. College essays can’t be generalized and automated since they are actually custom papers.

Each has its own requirements and instructions depending on:

So we believe having an automated standard price is not the best approach for getting a high-quality essay.

That’s why we are going to share with you the process Gradehacker uses to decide the price of essays based on students’ academic writing requests!

To ensure you can be confident and empowered to decide whether our reliable service with expert writers is a good fit for you, let’s go into more detail about each of these variables.

Is your essay for an undergraduate, graduate or nursing class?

The starting price per page is $55 for an undergrad essay and $60 for a graduate or nursing essay. 

This is extremely important as the topics and level of research for an undergraduate level are not as demanding as it is for a graduate level; that’s the main reason the price is different.

Let’s say you need an essay about the digestive system, an introductory undergraduate biology assignment.

In that case, the topic complexity will be more simple than for a graduate class.

Now, what if you get the same subject for a master’s class? Obviously, the topic complexity and amount of research for sources that your essay will need will be higher.

That’s why the final price of an essay in Gradehacker will differ depending on the degree level you are pursuing.

How many pages does your essay need?

For our essay writing service, we have a starting fair price per page, as mentioned above. This means that the more pages your essay has, the lower the cost per page.

There will be tiered discounts per page after certain milestones, such as needing more than 4, 7, or 10 pages.

Sounds good, right?

With our paper writing services, you can rest assured that your work will be handled by experienced writers who deliver high-quality content on time and within your budget.

Is your essay single or double-spaced?

Now, let’s keep thinking about that digestive system essay topic.

Depending on the spacing formatting, the number of pages will vary even if it has the same amount of words.

Here’s an example:

If your essay needs to be written in a double-spaced format, your document will have 8 pages. But if your college paper is single-spaced, the number of pages would be slightly over 4.

Think about it as some sort of optical illusion experience. You may think there is less content because your document has fewer pages, but it’s about the same if you compare the word count.

Our professional paper writers will help you effectively convey your ideas and meet your word count requirements while maintaining the desired formatting.

What if your essay’s requirements are in terms of word count and not pages?

If your essay has a specific word count and not a number of pages, our Student Success team can still figure out the best reasonable price for you!

For our academic writing services, we have an internal tool that allows us to convert a specific word count to pages. This tool also considers other important aspects to reach an accurate page number.

Here’s the link to the site Wordcounter and we invite you to use it so you can see exactly where we get the page numbers. Just enter the font used, the spacing of the paper, and the font size.

In this sense, let’s suppose you have a 975-word complex assignment due soon. We put this into Wordcounter, which would tell us that those 975 words equal 4 pages of double-spaced content, with Time New Roman font size 12.

As you see, Wordcounter is a helpful internal tool that helps us determine the page count based on word count, font size, and spacing, and it also allows us to assess the cost associated with different kinds of papers accurately.

What happens if your essay’s requirements are given as a range of pages?

If your essay has a range of pages instead of a specific number, we find the average between the minimum and the maximum pages allowed.

We do this to ensure the best results for you so that you don’t receive any work with just the minimum requirements.

In our experience, we have found that going over the minimum is always beneficial for students to get high-quality papers. That’s why we provide the average pricing when you have a wide range of pages.

So, for example, you need an argumentative essay with a minimum of 6 pages and a maximum of 12 pages; we would calculate the average between these two limits. 

In this case, it would be 9. Therefore the price of having that essay on time will be offered based on those 9 pages.

With our paper writing services, we don’t want to offer you cheap essays!

We strive for reasonable prices where you can trust you’ll have direct communication with our highly skilled writers and top-notch papers.

Do you need your paper in 72 hrs or less?

Based on our experience as a professional essay writing service, we know there’s always the possibility of needing a last-minute essay.

Maybe you forgot or thought you could squeeze it into your schedule, but life got in the way of the deadline.

You can always submit a request for review in these cases to find out if the short time frame will work.

Our team will review it, and if accepted, which is usually the case, an express service premium of 15% is added to the final price. 

This premium is due to having to prioritize these last-minute types of essays that have a limit of 5-6 pages, but you’ll be able to have your flawless papers on time.

For example, let’s say that under normal circumstances, your essay has a price of $150. If you need it in 72 hrs or less, the price will end up being $172.50

Now that you know all this, you can see that this detailed pricing chart makes sense.

We prioritize time delivery and student-friendly prices. We understand the significance of meeting deadlines and offer the assurance that your essay will be delivered within the specified timeframe.

Is my Essay Plagiarism-Free?

The answer to this question will always be YES.

When purchasing an essay service, hundreds of students feel understandable anxiety about the authenticity of the content or sources their essay could have.

Many of them think plagiarism risk is extremely high, and we recognize it’s a problem for many essay writing services platforms.

To address this concern, we have an entire team of essay writers processing and reviewing every written project by our Editor-in-Chief.

Our Editor will check your original paper for formatting, grammar, and spelling, and, most importantly, will have a plagiarism report.

Most professors accept essays with a plagiarism score of 30% or less, but we believe that is entirely too high and thus aim to have less than 10%, with most of our custom papers having less than 5%!

And if issues like this one concern you when you’re considering hiring an essay writing service, we have a guide on how to avoid their most common problems, and that includes how you can ensure to receive plagiarism-free papers!

What is my Guarantee?

Sometimes things don’t go as planned, but this doesn’t mean we will not give you our best effort. To make you feel confident about our work with you, we offer a customer satisfaction guarantee.

Your A or B or free guarantee

We commit to achieving an A or B grade, but in case this is not accomplished (although very rarely), and your essay gets a C or lower grade, our team will take full responsibility and follow our money-back guarantee policy for those situations!

They’ll reach out to you and offer the following options:

Are Essay Writing Services an Investment?


Look at the bigger picture: If you work with an academic service, not only do you have more time to focus on your other responsibilities, but you also get to advance faster in your program and earn your diploma sooner!

And as you know, a college degree can provide an opportunity for a better job or promotion.

You will have your investment back once that occurs. Paying for help on your essay is one step to ensuring that your initial investment won’t be lost just because you failed an assignment.

Sometimes you may think that all your coursework relies entirely on your shoulders. Non-traditional students’ life is not easy. That could be true in an ideal world where everyone has plenty of time to do it all.

Student life is difficult, so worrying about a perfect essay shouldn’t feel like the end of the world when you can get help from a team of professional writers and study consultants with many years of experience.
