The pharmacy business domain was registered on June 21st, 2002, which is 10 years ago at the point of this writing. It was last updated on July 4th, 2022, with its expected date of expiration set for June 21st, 2028. The age of this domain, is 10 years, in addition to its registration length, which still has 6 years left. This factor should have been enough to show this business as legitimate, but there is no information about the domain registrant. Nonetheless, it is still too early to determine the company’s legitimacy based on this criterion. We will be considering other important criteria before reaching a solid conclusion about the company.
The online pharmacy’s having a business profile should help clear up the doubts that its domain anonymity posed. However, the pharmacy e-store has little business profile. There is no information on the owner or on any of its employees. In addition, the Canadian company has no physical address but a mailing address at P.O. Box 880524, Boca Raton, Florida 33488, United States. This address was also reported as its customer care center, which is a bit odd for a business with claims of being Canadian but having no Canadian address.
It is expected of a company with over 10 years of experience to have some public records of its business operation and its staff. Unfortunately, there is no related information. Its absence further casts a net of doubt over the legitimacy of the online drugstore.
The next step is checking for regulatory approval to see if the pharmacy e-store meets regulatory compliance. This is a very important criterion, instrumental in telling a fake online pharmacy from a legitimate one.
The pharmacy e-store has a slightly favorable rating from LegitScript, “unapproved.” This status means that the online drugstore doesn’t meet all the required regulatory compliance and has some level of risk. Furthermore, its rating by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is “Not Recommended.” This is the least status an online pharmacy can have from NABP and it emphasizes the business being risky and not meeting pharmacy practice and patients’ standards. Hence, with the pharmacy e-store ratings from LegitScript and NABP, it is safe to say that it doesn’t meet regulatory approval. This means only one thing, that the online pharmacy is unsafe and should be avoided.
Products and Pricing
The online pharmacy reportedly offers customers prescription and non-prescription medications, although only prescription drugs seem to be available on the pharmacy website.
Some of the popular prescription medications on the pharmacy website are:
- Crestor: 5 mg of 30 tablets costs $56
- Spiriva: 18mcg capsule of 30 capsules costs $79
- Eliquis: 2.5mg, 56 tablets costs $84
- Xarelto: 2.5mg, 56 tablets costs $120
- Januvia: 25mg, 28 tablets costs $51
The online pharmacy also prides itself on providing the best price on the market, with customers about to save 80% on prescription medications.
Payment and Shipping
There are three highlighted payment options on the pharmacy website. They are:
- bank drafts
- money orders
- personal checks
The shipping method used by the online drugstore is postal service mail. The shipping of a package costs $12, as highlighted in the shipping policy. In addition, delivery duration is estimated to be between 8 and 12 business days.
For a company with 10 years of operation, tons of customer reviews are expected. Interestingly and quite unfortunate, none could be found on the pharmacy website or on independent review platforms. This is another reason not to trust the online pharmacy and be wary.
The assessment of this online pharmacy took into consideration various factors before coming to a conclusion. The registration length and age of the domain might have been enough to classify it as safe. However, the identity of the domain registrant is unknown. In addition, the business is also anonymous, with no information on its owner or staff. Lastly, the online drugstore doesn’t meet all regulatory compliance and has no customer reviews. As a result, the online pharmacy will be given a rating of 2 stars and identified as a scam and unsafe.
