Domain Name Information
Reviewing the domain name information for this pharmacy shows us that they have been online since 2012. The domain name is also registered until 2026 indicating this drugstore expects to be in business for a long time yet. Both of these things are a good indication that the drugstore is going to be more reliable and safe for customers.
There is some information in the database about who owns this business. It does only tell us they are based, however, but this is more than many online pharmacies give us. This further suggests that the pharmacy is legit and likely to be reliable for it to users.
The pharmacy provides a few different addresses if you need to contact them. They have facilities in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Manitoba. Addresses for these locations are provided on the site.
Checking their British Columbia address does show that they are really based at the location they give. This is a good indication that this pharmacy is a safe place to buy your meds from.
The pharmacy displays a good number of regulatory seals and license approvals on their website. They give the names of many of the state pharmacy associations in Canada where the pharmacy locations are based.
Checking one of these regulatory seals shows that the pharmacy is legit and has the correct regulation that they should do. The Safe.pharmacy program is operated by the National Association for Boards of Pharmacy and means that the pharmacy is operating to higher standards and the applicable laws for where they are based.
As we have previously established, this is a Canadian pharmacy and they only provide a service to Canadian residents.
This is a telemedicine service where you book an appointment with a doctor to discuss your health concerns. If appropriate, the doctor will write you a prescription for the medicines you need.
The pills are supplied in personal pocket packs that are clearly labeled, so you know what you’re supposed to take and when. This ensures that you don’t miss a dose of a pill that you are supposed to take, something that is particularly important if you are on multiple medicines.
All the medications are sourced from Canadian wholesalers, which should ensure they are safe for patients. Both brand and generic medications are offered by the pharmacy, though the prices are not the cheapest online.
The pharmacy site is secure and you are allowed to pay through major credit cards. They also accept all major insurance plans, which might mean you only have some copays.
Shipping from this pharmacy is free to anywhere in Canada. There are some restrictions to this, however, likely meaning that if you are located in an area that doesn’t receive regular mail services there may be extra charges.
The pharmacy says that typically you can expect to receive your medications the next day if the prescription has been received before 3 pm the day before.
The pharmacy tells us they have many very happy customers who have written positive PocketPills.com reviews. Many of these customer reviews can be found on the Google business page as well as Facebook and other places.
These comments seem to be genuine with customers very happy about the service they have received from the pharmacy, but they aren’t without their dissenting voices. While some people have problems with their medical order through the pharmacy, this is far from the normal customer experience.
Most people that use the pharmacy though, are very happy with the service they have received, praising the speed of delivery and the ease of getting their medications. This leaves the overall rating from customers just under the maximum at 4.7 out of 5.
This pharmacy has a lot of accreditation to show it’s more likely to be safe for its customers. They also have a lot of great feedback adding to the feeling that this pharmacy is reliable.
But there are a few minor problems, like the fact that they are Canadian only and their prices aren’t the lowest we see.
