The first thing is to look at the about us page of the pharmacy. Unfortunately, when it comes to the about us page, the information is pretty short. However, it does display the logos of the pharmaceutical companies from which it sources the drugs.
At least a couple of those is overseas pharmaceutical companies. They might and might not be approved by US FDA. From this, you can easily gauge that it primarily sources drugs from overseas pharmaceutical companies.
On the homepage, it is listed that the pharmacy offers generic and branded medicines. However, when you dig deeper into the pharmacy’s inventory, you will find that it provides generic medicines. Only if you’re okay with that can you even consider this pharmacy.
The domain of the pharmacy was registered in 2019. According to that, the pharmacy is at least three years old. If the pharmacy is three years old, it cannot be considered a fly-by-night operator or a pharmacy in a nascent stage. Because of the same, it ticks all the boxes regarding the pharmacy experience.
Sites like ScamAdviser are a great way to dig deeper into the business details of the pharmacy. The site, however, states there is a small risk if you use this pharmacy.
Further, when you try to discover the business ownership information of the pharmacy, you will find that the ownership information is hidden. It uses privacy protection. A pharmacy that has been around for nearly 3 years still uses privacy protection, indicating that something is fishy.
There is not much information on the homepage of the pharmacy regarding FDA approvals. Not only that, the pharmacy is not approved by LegitScript. For all you know, it might be selling substandard drugs. If you still go ahead and order from this pharmacy, you are ordering purely based on the claims of the pharmacy.
The problem is that on the Internet, many pharmacies sell substandard medicines, and therefore, trusting any pharmacy is not good unless it provides you with strong reasons to trust the medicines it sells. Unfortunately, this pharmacy falls short in this aspect.
If you look at the inventory list of this pharmacy, it offers you over 100 different types of medicines. Once you go through the list and the accompanying images, you will realize that majority of them are generic. Generic medicines are not necessarily bad, but since US FDA doesn’t approve them in most cases, it is not good to go ahead.
However, one thing that goes in favor of this pharmacy is that it repeatedly states that it sells medicines only after gaining a prescription from a licensed pharmacist.
Pricing is the strong point of this pharmacy. Every new customer gets 10% off. Besides that, the pricing of generic medicines is pretty competitive. This pharmacy can work out well if you’re interested in saving money.
Not only that, it also has a sale section, and usually, there are at least 5 to 7 medicines on sale. Because of the same, you can save money when ordering from this pharmacy. The red flags, however, might prevent you from going ahead and ordering from this pharmacy.
Payments and Deliveries
The pharmacy has a secure shipping gateway. Because of the same, you can use most credit cards to pay for your order. However, it doesn’t specifically mention the type of credit card it accepts.
The lack of information provided by this pharmacy is undoubtedly frustrating. For example, when you dig deeper into the type of delivery methods used, you won’t be able to find much. However, the pharmacy clearly states that the order will be delivered within 30 business days. This is close to 45 calendar days. You should consider this pharmacy only when you’re willing to wait for that long time.
Despite all red flags, there are CertifiedPills.com reviews on Trustpilot. It has a 4.6 rating on Trustpilot. That is the only saving grace for this pharmacy. There are not many testimonials on the domain of the pharmacy itself.
While this pharmacy might not be an outright scam, there are many red flags. Not only that, the lack of information this pharmacy provides is certainly frustrating.
Considering these factors, we give it only a 30% trust level.
