We have an easy pricing system with no surprises, and it is based on two simple things: word count and turnaround time. To determine your word count in MS Word, go to the Review tab or Tools menu and select Word Count. If you want your footnotes/endnotes to be edited, make sure to check the option to include footnotes and endnotes in the word count. You can also use the Scribendi Word Count Tool to get a word count, and this is particularly helpful if you do not have a Word document (a .doc or .docx file). You can simply copy and paste your text into the Word Count Tool, and it will provide the word count for your document.
Unlike other companies, we don’t offer vague quotes based on hefty hourly rates or confusing calculations. To find the price for your document, simply select the most appropriate service on our home page, type in your word count, and then use the instant quote widget to generate a free quote.
Our quote widget automatically calculates and applies a discount for the following: A) when you choose a service with a longer turnaround time, B) when you want us to work on a large document, and C) when you order during off-peak periods.
- You will save money if you order a 48-hour turnaround time rather than a 24-hour turnaround time or if you choose a 1-week turnaround time rather than a 72-hour turnaround time.
- You will save money if you have a very large document, such as a book manuscript.
- You will save money if you choose to have documents edited during the week rather than on the weekend.
If you are from a business or corporation and looking for a customized service, please see our Business or Corporate service page for details.
