Domain Name Information
The website hasn’t been online for very long, with its registration starting just over a year ago. Newer pharmacies are more of a risk and could indicate a scam.
There aren’t any owner details in the database, a privacy service has hidden this information. We can see the domain registrar is Canadian, possibly hinting at the location of the owner.
The pharmacy does give a mailing address that tells us they are located in Manitoba, Canada. The address they provide is a PO box and not an actual business location.
The pharmacy doesn’t give a business name either. These are not great things to discover and could mean there is a greater risk of the pharmacy being a scam.
When we check their links to their Facebook and Instagram pages, we find that these accounts no longer exist. Perhaps they were removed by Facebook for some reason, but it doesn’t look very good or professional.
When looking into the business behind this pharmacy, we’ve found links to other online pharmacies. All of the following pharmacy sites use the same PO box address as this store:
This would seem to suggest that they are all owned by the same business, though this may not be the case.
The pharmacy does display a seal on their site that says they have a verified license for international prescription services, but we are unable to confirm this is genuine.
There isn’t any information on the seal stating who has issued this verification, and it isn’t possible to click on the seal.
Most of the pills available seem to be generic and their prices are not the most competitive, though cheaper than traditional drugstores. A wide range of medicines is available, however.
The store doesn’t give information about where exactly the pills they sell are dispensed from on their product pages. And since they only offer a PO box address, we don’t know where the pills are dispatched from.
The pills also don’t only come from Canadian pharmacies. They use fulfillment centers around the world to provide medications to their customers. Countries involved in this include Mauritius, Turkey, India, the UK, Australia, and Singapore.
Since the store doesn’t give information about these international pharmacies, we have no way of knowing if they are correctly regulated.
However, it is good to see you will need a valid prescription when you are placing an order on the site. You can upload a prescription, fax it, or mail it to them. If you wish, you can call their support center to place your order that way, making the pharmacy seem more legit.
Payment and Shipping
The pharmacy website is correctly secured to make sure that entering details is safe. Payment is available using:
Delivery within the United States costs $19.99 for non-refrigerated products. Express shipping for all products will cost $29.99. The price for delivery outside of the United States is also $29.99, though at the present time this isn’t available.
Delivery is expected to take between 3 and 5 business days to arrive once your order has been processed.
The pharmacy does display some PolarBearMeds.com reviews on their website. These look very good for the store with customers giving them 5 stars in all the feedback.
While these comments appear to be genuine, we can’t be sure. We also don’t know if some sort of incentive was provided for customers to write feedback. And any feedback that is on the store’s own pages is unlikely to be unbiased. The store could remove feedback that is positive, and there is no way of telling.
Though this store looks legit, they have only been online for a short while, and there are some issues. They aren’t providing information about who they are or where the meds are dispensed. Though they do operate a call center, so your concerns can be addressed, and they also seem to have happy customers.
Overall, the pharmacy is not the worst but could do better.
