Domain Name Information
This pharmacy tells us they have been in business since 2004, however, when we check the domain name details we find at that site is only been registered since 2012. While a pharmacy that has been in business for 9 years is more likely to be reputable, it looks like they’re lying about how long they have been online.
It is unusual for businesses to change their domain name. When pharmacies do it, it’s normally only because they are operating a scam that has been blocked by the authorities.
A domain privacy service based in the Czech Republic has been used to hide the details of this drugstore. This means that we do not know who owns the store or where they are based.
The pharmacy gives us a couple of addresses for where they do business, and one of those is in Buffalo, New York, USA, and the other is in Vancouver, Canada. The location in Buffalo is even called a mail processing center, indicating that this is likely just a mailbox service.
When we check their corporate head office address, we find a very prestigious-looking building. This building is called the Bentall 5 building, and it has even been featured in the film Fifty Shades of Grey.
But when we look into the details further, the address they gave it is actually that of a lawyer. This pharmacy doesn’t actually have offices in this building, they are just using business services from the lawyer.
The pharmacy provides no regulatory seals anywhere to indicate that they are following high standards when serving their customers. This isn’t exactly great and could mean that the pharmacy is less reliable.
When we run a check with LegitScript, we find they don’t recommend this store. They have given the site a rating of rogue because it doesn’t meet the accreditation standards it should do.
The pharmacy seems to offer a wide range of medications and they claim to offer the lowest prices online. However, the prices aren’t the lowest we see online, so this claim seems to be false.
The most popular categories on the website appear to be the following:
- CBD products
- Pet meds
- Men’s health
There isn’t that much information about the pills that are being sold, like the manufacturer, and we still aren’t certain of where these are dispensed from either.
The pharmacy only says that day source their pills from countries like India, Singapore, and in Europe. This increases the risks for a customer of the store and could mean is drugstore is a scam.
The pharmacy seems to be secure with a valid SSL certificate. While you cannot pay with your health insurance, they do offer the following methods:
- Personal check
- International money orders
Shipping will cost $12 if your order value is under $40. Delivery is expected to take between 12 and 16 days once payment has been received.
The pharmacy is collecting GlobalPharmacyPlus.com reviews on the Bizrate Surveys website. Feedback seems very positive towards the business suggesting that it is very reliable.
Checking Bizrate Surveys shows that these customers’ testimonials can be incentivized. This means that people who have given their feedback did so so for a reward of some sort. This might have been for a discount code or a free gift we aren’t entirely sure, but whatever it is it doesn’t exactly mean that the feedback is impartial.
Looking at independent review sites like Trustpilot, we are unable to find any feedback for this pharmacy. This looks perhaps slightly suspicious and doesn’t support the overall positive feedback on the other website.
This pharmacy is doing some things right, but there are a lot of problems here. Their business addresses aren’t genuine office locations, we can’t be sure where the medications are dispensed from, and regulatory approval is lacking.
Overall we are unable to recommend this pharmacy to you as it looks mostly like a scam. There are better pharmacies out there with lower prices that are more reliable.
