EditorPro Rates
To determine the cost of the edit, first do a word count (EditorPro will do this for you if requested). The cost of the edit is set based on the original length of the document, not the final edited length.

Editing Costs:

Development Edit: 40% of Basic Rate
Copy (Line) Edit: : 100% of Basic Rate
Proofreading: 60% of Basic Rate
Comprehensive:: 150% of Basic Rate

Basic Rate (Nonexpedited/No Special Formatting Requested)

$.01 USD per word (approximately $2.50 per double-spaced page) with turnaround time to be arranged with editor (generally allow at least 1 day for 20 pages and at least 1 week per 100 pages)

Basic Rate (Expedited/No Special Formatting)

$.02 per word for 2-day service (approximately $5.00 per double-spaced page) (50-page limit)
$.03 per word for next-day service (approximately $7.50 per double-spaced page)(25-page limit)

Basic Rate (Special Formatting Requested)

Academic papers and articles will be formatted to specific institutional, publication, or established guidelines for an additional 20% above the Basic Rate.

DISCOUNT FOR FICTION: 20% deduction from Basic.


Extra charges may apply if a revised version is substituted for the original after the edit has begun or if additions are significant. The editor will make a reasonable number of minor revisions at no extra charge during the edit and for one week after the final edited document is returned to the author (or if that period is not convenient for the author, for the same amount of time at a date in the reasonably near future.) Revisions made after that time will be charged as determined by the editor, which usually runs from 15-30% for any material previously edited.


Just send an email either describing your document or attaching a copy (MS Word or RTF formats preferred) and specifying your deadline. EditorPro will send you an email confirming receipt, price, and turnaround time. For new clients and on longer projects, a 50% deposit will usually be required payable via the site’s PayPal link (which accepts major credit/debit cards and e-checks as well as PayPal transfers) or by personal check. If an initial payment is required, in general the editing process will not begin and the turnaround time will not start to run until the payment has been received. .
