It is a New Zealand based drug store. It claims itself to be the number 1 pharmacy store in New Zealand. But we did some research and found that this claim doesn’t hold true. There is a lot wrong with this pharmacy to even call it a legit site. Here is our full review of KiwiDrug.com.

KiwiDrug was originally a real-world store. Then, they launched their online website in 2006. Their real-world store is offering its service for more than 40 years now. This website promises to offer medication for up to 50% less than other local pharmacies. We have no details about the name this website is affiliated with. The company itself has never mentioned the exact name anywhere on the internet.
This website has no seals from any licensing authority to prove that it is a legit pharmacy. It is a big concern for customers. Every pharmacy has to get approved from regulatory agencies to be called a genuine pharmacy. This makes a big statement towards this site being a scam. All legit pharmacy stores have seals from licensing authorities. A drugstore which has no approvals from regulatory agencies most probably has drugs which are not safe for use. Therefore it is recommended not to buy anything from this store.
LegitScript also lists this website as rogue internet pharmacy. This website does not meet its pharmacy verification standards. Therefore, there must be something wrong with it and one should not trust this site blindly.
The checkout page of this site doesn’t have an SSL certificate. This makes it very risky for the customers to make any transaction. No SSL Certificate means that your transaction is not completely secured. All genuine websites have an SSL certificate. An international Pharmacy with no SSL certificate raises many questions. This website can be a part of a big scam.
Website’s layout looks nice and clean at first sight. Most of the popular products are visible on the homepage itself. But when you use it, you will find that it is slow. While business websites usually load faster. This website has ties to Switzerland, Panama, and America. Even after being a New Zealand based website, it has ties with foreigner countries is an alarming sign for the buyers. Though this website generates a good amount of traffic still, its owner’s identity is hidden which is not good in terms of complete security.
Shipping and Delivery Cost
There is no specific data about the courier service that this company has been using to deliver orders. No shipping charges are applicable on orders above $100 while orders costing less than $100 require a shipping fee of $7.23. Time taken by any order to reach your doorstep depends upon the distance from which it is being delivered. The company provides its customers with a tracking id also to check the current status of their orders.
The pharmacy site accepts the following payment options:
❋ American Express
Based on our research of the site’s feedback, it looks like a site which believes in doing its job. It has more than 450 reviews on TrustPilot. It has a really good average rating after so many reviews from real customers. They also have not posted fake testimonials on their website like other rogue pharmacies. Our investigations suggest that all of their reviews are from real consumers. This does suggest that they may have some problems internally but they do provide their services. Their customer support is also responsive, unlike other fake internet pharmacies. This surely gains a little bit of trust.
This is a real-world store for more than 40 years and an online pharmacy for around 12 years. Normally, an illegitimate pharmacy doesn’t last that long on the internet. Its customer feedback is also great. These are two great positives for the site but still, there is a lot wrong which we cannot oversee. The first thing is that it isn’t approved from any licensing authority. It is very uncommon for a safe and secure pharmacy store. Moreover, the identity of the website is also hidden. Its ties with risky foreign countries are also an issue. There are many more problems with this site which help us to think that it may be a scam.
