WhoIs has put down the following records about the domain name: date of registration – 05-05-2002, expiry date: 05-05-2022. We now have the information that this pharmacy is approximately 17 years and a few days old (from the domain name registration date). All the online pharmacies aged more than 10 years that we’ve ever bumped upon are reliable. It has 17 years of experience, which it has used well to improve their customers’ experience.
It feels good to learn that this is a transparent company with no data reserved for itself. All its data: physical contact details, registrant’s contact details, and more are at the exposure of its clients. Most online companies have the habit of going undercover, especially the ones conducting rogue businesses. Contrarily, we found it difficult to spot the exact location of the website. Nevertheless, we could determine that it is either located in the United States or Panama. This is in line with ScamAdviser’s analysis, which suggested three possible locations of this website and their probabilities as Panama – 48%, United States – 44%, Canada – 8%. An obfuscatory behavior with regard to a website’s location raises concern. Lastly, it is always also important to check the profile of a company’s domain name registrar. The company has got the reputable EasyDNS Technologies Inc behind its domain name. Trust is earned more through such domain name hosts.
To the greatest extent, prescription medications are the drugs offered by this pharmacy. The range is wide. Valid prescriptions from valid sources are needed by the drugstore before one can be approved to checkout with the selected drugs. This is a very important step but is usually ignored by most other pharmacies. Turning to quality, we could verify that both the FDA and WHO check for the quality of drugs that are dispensed from this pharmacy. This is always a necessary and significant step too. It is the only way we can be sure that an online apothecary sells good quality meds. Drugs’ prices also play a big role in the process of judging the best drugstore. Being prescription medications, we expect them to have slightly high prices. However, this website’s pricing is quite higher than expected.
The drugstore appears in the CIPA member database and is authorized to carry the CIPA seal. ScamAdviser doubts its location but awards it a trust rate of 66%, which is way above average. NABP hasn’t this pharmacy in their database. LegitScript regards it as a rogue pharmacy. It also claims to be a member of the International Pharmacy Association of British Columbia (IPABC), though we found it hard to prove this.
To begin with, the pharmacy’s website is always insecure up to the checkout point. Though security at checkout protects our banking details, end-to-end website security is safer and faster than the partial one. Apart from being secure, the payments are also fast. Payments can only be successful for users with the following few payment options:
❋ International Money Orders
❋ Personal Checks
Shipping is done to most worldwide destinations. The website hasn’t specified the associated shipping options but has it clear that shipping is done through the US borders costs at least $25. The charges vary depending on one’s location and quantity of drugs. Insufficient information about shipping from the site hinders comprehensive studies into it. This shouldn’t always be the case.
We visited independent reviewer sites. MyWot and Yelp have some feedback, and the majority of customers wrote that this drugstore is a safe place to purchase prescription medications. The pharmacy itself has no avenue for customers to air their opinions about the services they got.
MediSave.ca took advantage of their drugs’ quality to overprice them. The pharmacy doesn’t have many regulatory approvals, though it is approved by CIPA, and trusted a little by ScamAdviser. The rest of the bodies dismiss their quality. The domain host is reputable and this is a good thing for the pharmacy.
