Domain Name Information
The domain information for this pharmacy tells us that they have been around for a long time. Their address has been registered since 2002 and will continue to be registered until at least 2028. This is a good indication that the store is legit since scammers don’t stay online for this long normally.
They are using a domain privacy service to hide their contact information, which could be of some concern. This is something which we often find with drugstores which aren’t reliable but isn’t necessarily a problem.
The pharmacy provides an address in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.
Checking this address shows us that this is a business located on an industrial estate. It is an address which is also associated with a number of other Canadian pharmacies. These include:
This isn’t a great thing to discover and could indicate some problems with this online pharmacy.
This store offers some regulatory accreditation seals from well-known Canadian organizations. These include CIPA and Pharmacy Checker. Clicking on these seals shows that they are genuinely accredited as they claim.
It is all too common for unreliable pharmacies to use seals like this, to make it seem like they are safe. So it is a reassuring sign to find that their use on this drugstore is valid.
Even though the store has these valid accreditations, LegitScript doesn’t consider them to be a safe pharmacy. They give them their lowest available rating of a rogue company. This indicates that they don’t adhere to the rules for where they sell their meds.
The store is selling pills which are available as brand along with the cheaper generics. They offer a good range on the store and their prices are higher than we often see, however.
This pharmacy makes a big deal of the fact that they are based in Canada. Despite this, many of their pills are actually sent from other countries. This will mean that delivery is often going to be much longer than you would otherwise expect and could lead to other problems.
They say that the international fulfillment centers that they work with are fully licensed in their countries, but we have no way to check this is valid as they don’t provide any information about them. They are using fulfillment centers in Turkey, India, Singapore, Mauritius, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Though they say this is perfectly safe, the use of international fulfillment centers could allow for fake and counterfeit pills to more easily enter the system. This could lead to customers receiving drugs that aren’t what they appear to be.
The payment options from this pharmacy are limited. They allow you to pay using:
- International money order
The site is secure to make sure the information you provide can’t be intercepted and used to commit fraud.
Delivery will cost $10 for the whole order and will take 4 to 8 business days if your products are coming from Canada. If they are being dispatched from one of their international fulfillment centers you can expect it to take 14 to 18 business days. If you are not in North America the shipping costs are higher at $25 or more depending on your location.
A few CanadaDrugsOnline.com reviews can be found on the Trustpilot site. There are only three testimonials on this page two give the store top marks and the other gives them only 2 stars. This low rating highlights slow delivery as a problem with the pharmacy, though it wasn’t something the other customers were subject to.
They have some regulation to make sure customers are given higher levels of service and are using an address that is genuine.
There are some issues with this store, however. The use of international fulfillment centers could be of some concern and the prices on the store aren’t as competitive as we see.
