OnlinePills.ca is a Canadian based pharmacy that claims to treat their customers like VIPs. They say that they are a trusted source of quality medication. Our look into what they have to offer puts these claims into question, and this may not be the best online source of pills you could choose.

Domain Name Information
The domain records which relate to this pharmacy show that they have been in business for a long time. They registered the domain name in 2013, which is a fairly long time for a drugstore to have been in business. This could suggest that they are less likely to be a scam than many of the newer pharmacies that we see.
There isn’t much information about where the owner of the site is located within the records. We are only told that they are located in BC. They have registered the domain with a Canadian registrar but all we are told is that they are in British Columbia.
Though the domain records tell us that they are in BC, Canada, they don’t provide a contact address on the site itself. The contact page doesn’t provide anything other than an online form. This means that they are more likely to be a scam business in our experience.
Since this pharmacy appears to be based in Canada we would expect them to have some regulation from Canadian organizations. However, they don’t show any seals on the site and this could mean that they aren’t following any rules in the operation of the store.
Checking with one of the best known Canadian regulatory bodies, CIPA, shows that they don’t have approval from this organization.
The pharmacy has been checked by LegitScript, however, though their findings aren’t good for the store. They give the pharmacy their lowest rating of a rogue online drugstore. This indicates that they have looked into the business only to conclude that they don’t have the regulatory approvals to operate in the way they do.
The store seems to offer a good range of products, with its bestselling items from the men’s health category.
They don’t provide details about where the pills are dispensed from, though we might expect them to come from Canada, this shouldn’t be assumed. They don’t say where the pills are manufactured either, though they do say that they are from FDA approved companies. They fail to offer any confirmation of these, however, and we are unable to confirm this is true.
There is a risk that the drugs supplied by this store are of a lower quality than you might hope. This could lead to customers of the store receiving pills that don’t work as expected or create new health problems for them. This is a big problem with scam pharmacies and is a serious problem you should avoid.
The checkout process is concluded on a different website that has some security for their customers. They allow you to settle your bill through the following options:
- Most credit cards
The delivery of your medications is a choice between their airmail service or delivery which includes tracking. Airmail is going to cost $10 and the service with tracking $30. Delivery is free when you spend more than $200 on products.
There is a page on the site for OnlinePills.ca reviews. These give the impression that what the store is doing is making their customers very happy, however, we have our doubts.
The problem is that we have seen these same testimonials on other pharmacy stores. Fake testimonials are often used by scammers to try to convince people to part with their money and that could be the case here. There is a slight possibility that these are the original customer comments that have been copied by other sites, but we doubt it.
Though this store has been around for a comparatively long time, there are many reasons to doubt the quality of their service. They don’t have any regulatory approvals to operate and they want to remain anonymous. They also don’t provide details of the dispensing location.
