Making many promises is a common thing among writing companies, so we weren’t really amazed or surprised to read about Kibin being the best, the most qualified, etc. However, everything appeared so vague and nothing was supported by real information, we went a bit further than just ordering and read customers Kibin reviews.
First, we started by checking the writers whose photos they’ve posted on the website. You’ll be shocked to hear that all their photos are stock photos, used only to make the website more appealing to you. This means that we still don’t know who their writers are. But now, we know something more important – that they don’t even write papers in the first place!
List of Services
Yes, you read right. Kibin.com is not a writing company, at least not a legit one. They don’t write papers for you. Basically, they charge you to use their programs to write the papers on your own, give you access to some essay samples on their website, and offer you a human essay editing service.
Here is the full list of services as they provide it on the website:
- Over 500,000 documents and examples you can use to brainstorm (many of them not of high quality, actually);
- Essay editing service from one of their experts;
- Free paper grader software;
- Thesis builder free tool.
Prices, Discounts & Payment Policy
Kibin is a highly priced editing service. For the very limited feedback they have and the rather poor reputation online, they charge a big sum of money to edit an existing paper.
There’s no pricelist you can look at, but you can add your word count in their order form to see what their quotes are like. If you’re a native English speaker, the prices begin at $32 for 1000 words. This applies to their longest deadline available, which is 72 hours. They also have short deadlines that go as far as 3 hours and, for this size of a paper, cost $70 for editing services.
As you can see, this is one of the higher priced companies, and the prices go even higher if you aren’t a native English student. Moreover, they are known to delay edits if you order them a few hours before your deadline, so we wouldn’t recommend putting much trust in their short-term deadline offers.
Basically, this is an editing company with free thesis builder software embedded in their website pages. There’s also a free paper grader which, in our expertise, is a trick to convince you to pay for editing.
When we sent a ready, amazing paper graded with an A by a professor to be graded by their software, it gave us a low grade and many suggestions for editing. When we sent a paper their people edited, it gave us an A, even though the editing was far from good. Other students described a similar situation in their
Their thesis builder is also a disappointment. It gives some general advice about writing, something that you can learn by writing guides or a simple Google search. There are plenty of great content writing software tools and apps online that provide better guidance, some of them even free of charge.
That being said, the quality evaluation went really bad when we checked the service.
The support was the most disappointing part of my Kibin review. Everything appears great and the service seems to have many qualified support agents and managers and yet, the response we got came over 24 hours after we asked them a question.
There’s a button that appears like a chat, but it’s actually a FAQ section. If you can’t get the answer there, you need to send them a message and wait for a response. We got one a day later, and the agent didn’t really help us at all.
All in all, our experience here was not worth the money we paid. This is a high priced company with bad editing services. They have some free useful samples, but we wouldn’t put our trust in their editors again.
