1.6. REQUIREMENTS FOR PAPERS. PAPER FORMAT
Each Paper must be in full compliance with the following requirements:
• Content should be of a high quality,
• The Customer's requirements should be followed to the letter,
• The Paper should be correctly formatted,
• Content should be 100% original,
• All quotations must be properly referenced and attributed,
• Delivery of the Paper must be on time.
• A minimum of 275 words per page for double spaced page, and 550 words for single spaced page.
• Use of Arial or Times new Roman font 12 pt,
• Paper is to be saved in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel formats depending on the assignment,
• Paper must strictly follow a citation style (MLA, APA, Harvard, Chicago) determined by the Customer,
• Proper margins (1'' from each side),
• Double spaced lines,
• Footnotes and detailed or annotated bibliographies on customer's demand,
• Good grammar and punctuation.
1.7. CALCULATING PAYMENTS TO WRITERS
The amount you will be paid for each submitted Paper is based on the following parameters:
• Number of pages,
• Closeness of the deadline,
• Complexity of the Paper/Academic level,
• Amounts withheld as fines (for plagiarizing, being late, retracting from order or revision).
There are other factors that can affect the price per page. This occurs when variable components, usually defined by the Customers, come into play (for example, math paper of one page may differ in price from literature paper of one page.)
Whenever the Customer is not satisfied with the quality of the Paper (to be proven) he/she can ask for a revision. The Writer is to complete the revision within the defined period of time.
If the Paper complies with the initial requirements of the Customer, the revision is done without extra payment to the Writer. Revisions may be additionally paid if the Customer changes his/her initial requirements.
It is mandatory for the Writer to complete a revision. In case of retracting from a revision, writer's payment may be recalculated based on a reason for retract. Each refusing a revision is assessed as a unique case and is treated individually.
1.9. TITLE AND REFERENCE PAGES
Title and reference pages are completed by writers for free as per agreement with a Customer.
1.10. PAYMENT DETAILS
• Payment periods: for the first two weeks the payment is issued on 16th-19th, for the next two weeks the payment is issued on 2nd-5th.
• Payment methods are: Paypal and Payoneer card.
• We have set a minimal withdrawal limit, which is $40.
1.11. PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
You agree to bear all and any costs related to the transfer of payments from the Company to you (including fees or commissions charged by banks and transfer agents).
To receive any payments from the Company you may choose the following options:
• Paypal: you should provide the Company with your Paypal account and a screenshot of it
• Prepaid Debit MasterCard®, Powered by Payoneer: you should register at Payoneer.com through your home page inside our system. After you will receive the card, you will be getting your funds directly to your card.
1.12. PAYMENTS WITHHELD
You agree that around ten- fifteen percent of each payment will be normally withheld. So, you will initially receive 90%-85% of each fee due to you.
The withholding promotes a better responsibility among our writers to help with any rewrites. It results in fewer cancellations and therefore greater continuity in the workflow (and payments) for our writers.
1.13. ADVANCED WRITER STATUS
We are always pleased when our writers are both conscientious and hard working. To help encourage this, we have a Bonus Policy, which rewards writers for their consistent efforts.
Advanced status allows you to use auto-assign option: to select an assignment for the Paper without going through the usual procedures, where an assignment is offered to you by the Company. Once you have applied for an order, it immediately appears in orders you have in process with initially set price and deadline. In our assessment process, we take into consideration the feedback we receive from the Customers. It is imperative that performance standards are kept high to maintain a favourable track record.
1.14. PENALTIES AND FINES
Fines and penalties are deductions made by the Company from the payments that are due to the Writer. The fines and penalties apply in the following cases:
|Reason||Percentage of fine||Explanation|
