Domain Name Information
A look at the domain name information for this pharmacy business shows that they are new. Having only been registered in 2020, they might not have a good track record of serving their customers and are, therefore, less likely to be legit.
The contact information in the domain records points towards Iceland, but these are the details of a privacy service. We don’t really know where the owners of this website are located because of this, and we are unable to confirm that they are in Canada as they claim.
This pharmacy even puts a Canadian flag in their logo, to show that they are a Canadian pharmacy. They do also give customers a Canadian address to mail prescriptions.
However, the address they give is a PO box and not their real operating location. This could be hiding the fact that they aren’t really operating from where they claim.
This isn’t the only pharmacy that uses the same PO box address, there are three more.
Since these stores are using the same PO box address they must be operated by the same company.
This pharmacy does display a seal from the IPABC as well as a logo saying TrustedSite. IPABC is a regulatory association we are familiar with and helps ensure the safety of pharmacies operating from British Columbia.
However, when we check with IPABC, Honeybee Pharmacy isn’t listed. Since this association lists all of their approved pharmacies, this means that Honeybee is using their seal illegitimately. This isn’t something good to discover and could mean that this pharmacy isn’t as safe as it might at first appear.
When we look at LegitScript, we find that this pharmacy is unapproved. While this isn’t the worst possible finding LegitScript could have reported, it isn’t great. It means that this pharmacy doesn’t follow or meet the verification standards that they should be to be safe.
This pharmacy offers four main categories of products to their patients:
- Pet medication
Within these categories, they offer a large range of medications including men’s health drugs. They mostly sell generic medications though the prices aren’t the lowest online.
Despite this pharmacy claiming to be Canadian, many of their medications are dispensed in other countries. They don’t provide any details about where these medications are dispensed from whether they are from Canada or anywhere else.
This raises some possibility that the medications they sell aren’t always from legit sources. Without any information about the pharmacies providing these meds, there is no way for us to tell that this is done in a reliable way. The store claims that the pharmacies they partner with are working to the correct standards they should be, but we only have their word for this.
When you make a purchase from this pharmacy, you have the option to choose between the following methods of payment:
- American Express
The pharmacy site is secure with the correct security protocols they should be following, this should make sure that your financial details are safe when you make a purchase.
This pharmacy charges $14.99 for most medical shipments. If you are ordering insulin, however, delivery charges rise to $29.99. Shipping is free when you spend more than $300 on medications, and they say that you can expect to receive your pills in around 7 to 10 days.
This is probably only true when you are ordering medications from Canada, with customers likely to face a longer delivery wait on meds being dispensed in India, for example.
The store has a page for HoneybeePharmacy.com reviews, and this contains comments from many happy customers. There is an impressive number of customer comments on this page and they appear to be genuine.
While it is better to find customer feedback on independent review websites, this does seem to show that the pharmacy is doing a lot of things correctly. The downside with reviews like this is that we cannot see the full opinion of customers, as anything negative isn’t going to get posted.
This pharmacy is doing many things right. There are still some concerns we have with the store, however, like their lack of proper accreditation and business location information.
