The website is quite typical in its functionality. It has a price calculator and a table that gives you intuitive understanding of how the prices are determined and in what ways you can make your order cheaper. Most of the information concerning the payment methods, security and so on is available on the main page, so there is no need to explore the site further.
Different writing services base their prices on different factors. Things that are most important for IvoryResearch are deadlines. The less time you give the writer, the more expensive his or her services will be. There are other aspects as well: you may choose between 3 quality levels, but they do not increase the overall price dramatically and only really matter in case of large orders. Prices on most assignments are the same as for essays, but there are some that have their own pricing system: for example, admission essays are differentiated according to the type of institution. All in all, prices are somewhat higher than average: essays cost from $30.22 to $87.66 per page.
You can communicate with the support team via chat, phone or e-mail. In all cases (with the exception of e-mail, for obvious reasons) the operator answers you almost at once and quickly gives you all the necessary information. They are the people who certainly know their job and how their service functions.
Quality of writing:
I have received my paper long before the deadline, but it hardly did the service credit – the level of writing was mediocre at best. There weren’t any blatant mistakes and drawbacks – it was overall quality level that led to such results. There wasn’t even a reason to ask for a refund – the writer did all I asked. I only mean that he could have done it better.

IvoryResearch tries to position itself as a premium class writing service. However, it mostly falls into this category due to its pricing policy. Truly excellent customer support is not enough when your piece of writing is nothing more than mediocre.
