Domain Name Information
The domain name information for this website shows that this pharmacy hasn’t been in business for a particularly long time. With the registration from just 2018, there is more risk of this pharmacy is a scam.
The pharmacy is also using a domain privacy service to hide their real contact information. This is often something we find with more dubious pharmacies but it is used with legit stores as well.
There is some contact information on the website if you need to mail in your prescriptions. However, they only provide a PO box address, so we don’t know where they are genuinely operating from.
While they claim to be a Canadian pharmacy, we can’t be sure about this.
This pharmacy does have some regulatory seals displayed on their homepage. And clicking on these seals shows that they are valid.
This is a good indication that the pharmacy is legit and is operating to better standards of practice that ensure the safety of their customers.
Checking with LegitScript, we can see that they aren’t given a full bill of health. They’ve only been given an unapproved status which means that they do not currently meet the verification rules of this association.
The pharmacy offers a wide range of pills as you would expect from any high street store. The prices, however, are far from the cheapest that we have seen from online pharmacies.
Despite this pharmacy appearing to be Canadian, your meds might be dispensed from any other country when you place an order. They say that they use various fulfillment centers around the world including the following locations:
They do claim that their fulfillment centers are correctly regulated in the countries in which they are located, but they provide no evidence of this to us. What they are saying could be true, but dispensing meds from all over the world leads to a greater risk for customers. It makes it far more likely that low-quality medication could find its way into the supply chain, and then on to their customers.
They do say, however, that you can get your meds delivered from a Canadian pharmacy through them if you wish. But in order to do this, you will need to contact their customer support, and the selection of meds will be more limited.
If you want to order prescription medication from this pharmacy they will need to see a valid prescription from your doctor. You can mail it to them, upload it, or email it to their address.
This is the sort of thing we expect from a legit pharmacy and shows that they are trying to follow the required rules for selling medication online.
The pharmacy’s pages are secure with a valid SSL certificate. You can either pay online after signing up and creating an account or phone their call center and pay for your meds over the phone.
They don’t provide information on what payment methods they offer, but it is likely that they will accept most major credit cards.
They charge a flat fee of $14.95 for shipping. They say that you should allow between 8 and 14 business days for your meds to arrive.
The pharmacy has more than 2,500 CanadianMedCenter.com reviews on their site. And while this appears great, there are a couple of problems.
They display no negative comments about the pharmacy in these reviews. Now perhaps this is because they provide a great service that never makes any mistakes, but it is more likely that they delete comments that don’t give them good marks. While this is a problem, the sheer number of customer comments suggests that they aren’t a scam.
This pharmacy does many things correctly, but they aren’t perfect. While they do have some regulatory approvals to show that they are doing things properly, not everything is legit.
Their prices are fairly high and they could benefit from more transparency.
