In this review, we are going to alert you against a rogue online pharmacy i.e. PillStock.net. It claims to be a certified supplier of different types of medicines. On their homepage, the website has mentioned that they are approved by various regulatory authorities, such as FDA, CIPA, and PharmacyChecker. So, we have tried to validate whether these claims are true or not. Our findings on this internet drugstore are provided in the below sections.
|Date of Registration||2015-05-12|
|Owner Country||US, Argentina|
|Name of Organisation||Online Pharmacy|
|Licenses, Certificates and Approvals|
|Live Chat Option||no|
The domain info of this online pharmacy which we have captured via WhoIs proves that the site is operating for a few years by now. The original domain registration date is given as 2015-05-12 and the domain expiry date is given as 2020-05-12. The platform hasn’t shared much valid information on their domain registrant contact. For example, the domain registrant state and country are only mentioned. The state is given as Buenos Aires and the country as AR or Argentina. It looks like these details are possibly fake. Plus, the platform has provided an email contact id which looks pretty much fake too.
In the previous sections, you have revealed that this online drugstore platform has given some fake and ambiguous information on their domain details. Now, it’s the time to validate whether this pharmacy has appropriate business profile details or not. According to ScamAdviser, the platform has an extremely poor trust rating. For example, we have found that the site has a trust rating of 18% which implies that it’s an unreliable and non-trustworthy drugstore for sure! As a user, you are requested to proceed with caution since this is a risky and unsafe pharmacy website. Other than that, we have noticed that this drugstore has completely hidden their business profile details. The site has not mentioned any details about their business profile including business owner name and contact address.
This risky and unsafe website surely does not have any regulatory approvals. Despite this fact, the platform has put some fake seals on their homepage. As mentioned earlier, the platform claims to have approvals from CIPA, FDA, and PharmacyChecker. But, when we have cross-checked, we found that none of these regulatory agencies has given any approval to this drugstore. Thus, the pharmacy website is not only running a deceptive business and faked their key identities, but also they have failed to fulfill the verification standards and rules as set by these renowned regulatory authorities.
Products and Pricing
According to this pharmacy and its homepage, you can purchase different types of medications from this drugstore. Starting from antibacterial and blood pressure to eye drop and gastro health, the website deals with various types of medicines which come at a low price. It’s true that the overall pricing of these medicines is much lesser than the average industry rate. Still, you’re requested not to ever purchase these medicines as they are procured from unapproved and uncertified drug manufacturers.
Payment and Shipping
The website supports and accepts a wide variety of payment methods that are listed below. Note, the platform accepts different types of credit cards.
There are two shipping methods – Trackable Courier Service or EMS and Airmail.
The delivery timeline broadly varies based on the customer’s actual address. EMS shipping option comes with a tracking number and it ensures faster delivery. However, the standard Airmail service does not have any tracking facility and it takes more time to deliver an order. For example, the estimated delivery timeline for Airmail service is 14 – 21 days. Sometimes, it takes even more than 30 days to deliver an order. The estimated delivery time for EMS is around 5 – 9 days.
We have checked and found that the platform has mentioned some fake positive customer reviews (on their website) which you should not believe. But, when we have tried to validate their real-time customer reviews via TrustPilot, we have observed that the site has received no customer feedback yet.
Surely, the platform is not a legit site. They have no approvals and they have placed fake certification seals on their homepage. We have rated this online pharmacy with only a 10% trust level.
