How to Order Papers Online

We aim to offer the most affordable academic writing services to learners globally. Please note that for us to write a quality paper for you, we'd need you to give us as many details as possible - tell us when you want it done, make the payment, and wait for the paper within your set deadline.

The ordering process at SmartWrite is straightforward. You can simply click the Order Now button at the top of the page and fill in the details as requested. Feel free to contact us 24/7. 

Generally, you should (1) Complete the order form, (2) Pay for the order, (3) Track the order progress, and finally (4) You will receive your order in time. No hidden charges at all! 

1. Complete the Order Form

The order form has three basic elements (steps): Price Calculation, Order Details, and Account Details. Let's explore each of them in the following section. 

A. Price Calculation 

You could be wondering, how much does a paper or any other custom essay cost online? Or, probably, the exact amount to spend on proofreading, editing, or formatting per page. Use our site to calculate the essay price for free.


As evident, the cost of our service depends on four major factors, namely:

  1. The academic level -from high school to doctorate level
  2. Type of paper or service - writing from scratch is a little more expensive than editing and proofreading
  3. Urgency (deadline) - the longer the deadline, the cheaper the service
  4. The volume of the paper (in terms of pages or number of words) - a double-spaced page has 275 words, and a single-spaced page has 550 words. 

Now that you know the cost proceed to the second step - filling in the order details.

B. Filling the Order Details

The quality of any product broadly depends on the appropriateness of the raw materials. Similarly, for us to deliver quality writing products and services, we need as many accurate details as possible. Do you have a topic for your essay, research paper, or thesis? If not, we have a list of essay topics that you may consider. 

Give us all the details, and we shall deliver exceptional papers - beyond your expectations. We allow our customers to provide materials, although you can still trust us to use our own. Our experts only use peer-reviewed articles to write your papers unless otherwise stated.

Tell us more about your topic, formatting requirements, rubric, and any other additional comments. After keying in the order details, we'll need you to create a portal - account details. 

C. Account Details 

If you are a new user, you need to create a client portal with us. We need your name, email address, and password (recoverable). Be assured that your details are secure and any information you give us is confidential - Privacy Policy.

If you are an existing customer, log in using the email and password you set while creating the account. 

Now, your order form is complete. Proceed to payment for us to start working on your paper. If you feel that there are missing details or assignment files, do not worry - you can clarify with the writer and even upload them later. Just don't forget.
