Domain Name Information
Looking in the domain name records for this pharmacy lets us know that they have been registered since 2003.
This is a pretty good indication that this drugstore is a legit business. We don’t normally see pharmacies, which have been online this long, which aren’t legit.
The owner of this pharmacy has chosen to use domain privacy to make sure that their information isn’t displayed in the domain records. This isn’t a great thing to find and could indicate some issues with this pharmacy.
This pharmacy does provide an address for their business. This is located in Canada, in British Columbia.
However, when we check this address we find that is actually the location of a UPS Store and not the office or retail location we might have expected. The use of a PO box as a business address leaves us unsure as to who is operating this business or if they are really located in Canada.
There isn’t a business name given for the operators of this pharmacy site. This is another issue that could cause concern from the lack of transparency this pharmacy gives about who they are.
This pharmacy uses three seals on their site from regulatory associations. They have seals from CIPA, IPABC and Pharmacy Checker. These are regulatory associations which provide some regulation to Canadian pharmacy websites.
It is always a good idea to click on these seals to make sure they are actually valid members like they claim. Clicking on the Pharmacy Checker seal shows that they are members of the association.
However, when we check with CIPA to see that they are members of the association like they claim, we discover that they aren’t members. Perhaps they were accredited at one time, but they aren’t currently and shouldn’t be displaying the seal on their site.
The same is also true for the IPABC seal and claim of accreditation. This is not good to find and show problems which should have been addressed by the owner of this business.
LegitScript have looked into this pharmacy to check that they are working in accordance with the rules and have found them wanting. They give the pharmacy a rating of unapproved, which means that they don’t comply with the standards that they should be following.
This drugstore offers a wide range of products to customers. Their prices are cheaper than what you might be expected to pay in a US pharmacy but they aren’t the cheapest prices found online.
There most popular product categories are:
- Weight loss meds
- Quit smoking treatments
- Acid reflux
- Depression pills
As we have seen, this appears to be a Canadian pharmacy, but despite that, the drugs aren’t dispensed entirely from Canada. They use fulfillment centers from all over the world to supply products to customers of this site. Pills are dispatched from India, Turkey, Mauritius, Singapore, New Zealand, the UK and the USA as well as Canada.
This could all mean that there is a greater risk of counterfeit dangerous meds entering their supply chain. It also means that shipping will be longer than expected.
Payment and Shipping
Payment is accepted using the following methods:
- American Express
- E-checks, personal and certified checks
- International money orders
This pharmacy only sells products in the USA. Delivery is expected to take between 2 and 4 weeks to arrive at a cost of $9 per order. There may be an extra charge for heavier packages.
Despite this pharmacy has been in business for a long time it is difficult to find QualityPrescriptionDrugs.com reviews online. They do have some customer testimonials on their homepage which are very positive as you would imagine, but this isn’t the best place to find unbiased reviews.
There is one customer testimony on the Better Business Bureau site which is very complimentary of the business. This does seem to be a real customer comment and shows that some people are certainly happy with the service they give to customers.
This online pharmacy has been in business for a long time. They have some regulation but they are also displaying seals which they shouldn’t be. We haven’t found any negative feedback but there isn’t much feedback overall.
