Domain Name Information
When we check on the registration information about this domain name we can see that they have been registered for a long time.
The domain has been registered since 2002 and this suggests that the pharmacy is more likely to be a legit one, as less reliable stores don’t normally manage to stay around anywhere near as long as this one has.
The registration information also shows us that a privacy service has been used to keep the real owner info out of the records. For obvious reasons, this could be seen as suspicious, though it isn’t necessarily an issue.
This site does give the name of the Canadian dispensing pharmacy which is good. However, they don’t provide business details for who operates this site.
The small print on the store proves information about York Pharmacy and even the contact details for the College of Pharmacists for where the dispensing pharmacy is located. Is York Pharmacy responsible for this website? They don’t make it clear on the site.
This pharmacy is using regulatory seals from CIPA and Pharmacy Checker to prove their credentials. It is always a good idea to check that the use of seals like this is valid. Going to both of these regulatory associations we can see that they are approved as they claim.
When we look to the findings of LegitScript we can see that they don’t have much good to say about the store. They give them an unapproved rating. While this isn’t the lowest classification they can give, it is hardly a ringing endorsement.
They offer a wide selection of treatments in their pharmacy and the prices are higher than many other online drugstores. They sell both brand and the cheaper generic versions.
The pills are dispatched from an associated Canadian pharmacy which is named on the site. They also use other fulfillment centers located in many different countries, these include India, Mauritius, Turkey, Singapore, New Zealand, the UK and the US.
The use of these international dispensing locations, for what otherwise appears to be a Canadian pharmacy, could be seen as a little deceptive. They do mention this on their site in a number of places but don’t mention on the product pages where the drugs are coming from.
They do say that all of the fulfillment centers are correctly regulated in their particular countries but they provide no way in which we are able to confirm this. These centers have to be regulated for them to have accreditation from Pharmacy Checker and CIPA, so this provides some assurance of safety.
They do need a valid prescription for drugs which require it. They cannot, however, transfer a prescription from another pharmacy outside of Canada and will need one faxed or mailed to them.
Payment and Shipping
They will take payment using:
- American Express
- International money order
Their site is using a valid SSL certificate to make sure that your personal information is safe when using the checkout.
Shipping costs $9.95 per order. They will dispatch to the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. There may be additional charges for heavier packages or those needing specialist delivery. Shipping times are expected to be from 2 to 4 weeks.
When looking for MapleLeafMeds.com reviews online it has been difficult to find customers of this store providing their opinion. We have only been able to find one such comment.
This seems to be from a genuine customer of the drugstore and they appear to have had a good experience with the site. They do only give them a four out of five stars, however.
This Canadian pharmacy has regulation to make sure you are kept safe when trusting them with an order. They have been in business for a long time and we haven’t been able to find any negative customer feedback. This store isn’t perfect, however, with issues of transparency and higher prices.
