reviews – Beware! A Dubious Online Drugstore

1.3 out of 5 stars



Today we review another pharmacy. Canadian-pharmacy-1 has a lot of resemblance to several illegally run online pharmacies, right from the Domain name. There is a lot of shadiness about the details of the business, as well as the products it supplies. Below is a detailed review of the site:

About the Domain

The domain name is an easy rip-off of, which is a Rogue online pharmacy. This is, however, no surprise, as there are several mirror sites of the domain, all with similar designs and dealing in drugs of questionable quality.



The domain has been functional for about nine months since its registration in January 2016. The interesting aspect of its registration is that it was done by an African based registrar, Afriregister, in Burundi. This does not make sense for a company based in Burundi. To add on to this, our searches reveal that the site is based in Lithuania, an Eastern European country with very little legal control of internet activities. Also, the details of the domain owner are withheld for privacy reasons. All these features raise a lot of suspicion about the genuineness of the business.


Business/Company running the pharmacy

There is no way you can trace the company behind the online pharmacy. The business name provided, Online Pharmacy, is obviously fake. There is no physical address of the business or functional contact details provided. The phone numbers provided are the same being used by hundreds of other sites for call support services.


Approval by regulatory bodies displays 4 seals of certification from CPA, CIPA, and MIPA. However, our searches on the same drug regulatory agencies revealed that the site is not registered by any of them. This not only reveals the illegality of the pharmacy’s operations, but also the dishonesty and untrustworthiness of the operators.



The lack of approval implies that the pharmacy is most likely conducting its operations contrary to the requirements and regulations of the industry. The quality and safety of their products are most likely contentious.



Quality of drugs

There are more than enough reasons to label the site’s drugs as poor quality, and even as counterfeits. To start with, it is not approved by any regulatory authority. Second, it sources its drugs from Pakistan, a country with no strict regulations of manufacturing and outsourcing of drugs by pharmaceuticals. There have also been several instances of counterfeit drugs being supplied to the online retailer.

To add on to this, the pharmacy violates storage and shipping requirements further worsening the already compromised quality of the drugs. This may be the reason why the risk of poisoning from these drugs is quite high.


Customer feedback and reviews

There is no way for customers to air their views about the products and services of the company. The site’s testimonial page is a total sham. It tricks you into thinking that you have posted a comment, but loading the same page on another browser reveals that your comment is not posted. Instead, the same fake positive comments are constantly displayed. The comments are similar, word by word, to those displayed on other fake online retailer sites.


My comment:


After/another browser:



Prescription requirement

Despite most of their drugs being prescription-only medication, the retailer sells them without requiring any prescription form. This is an unscrupulous practice that further proves the shadiness of the pharmacy.

Like other rogue pharmacies, the site deals in sexual health products. This seems to be a favorite category of drugs preferred by illegally run pharmacies.



The sites tag-line says that their products are 70% cheaper than your local pharmacy. This is a huge understatement as the drugs are up to ten times cheaper than the normal market price in genuine pharmacies. Drugs such as Viagra retail for as low as $0.36 per pill. The only logical explanation for this is that the drugs are counterfeits, or of very poor quality. coupons

There are no available coupons for this site; the retailer does not offer any. Instead, there are special offers on some of the store’s top products like Cialis. This allows you to get extra pills with every purchase. The site also offers gifts in form of extra pills.


Payment and Delivery

The site accepts payment made using Master Card and Visa only. There are however several currency options. Shipping is done mainly via Airmail and EMS. The prices are quite standard: $9.95 for regular shipping and an extra $10 for the monitoring option.



In conclusion, is an illegally run pharmacy. It is affiliated to several rogue online pharmacies and also bears many similarities to them in terms of web design, product quality, and prices. It is generally not safe to source medication from this site.


Possible alternatives

While brick and mortar pharmacies are a safe bet any day, online pharmacies are better, cheaper and more convenient. There is a ton of pharmacies on the internet, and this ends up confusing the consumers, as they do not know who is legitimate and who is out for a quick back. This is where we come in; our experts are constantly scouring the internet, looking for pharmacies and evaluating them based on set criteria.

We provide highly relevant information about these pharmacies, which allows you to choose where to shop for your medication and decide what establishments to stay away from. Our content is periodically updated with information about both existing and upcoming online pharmacies.

  1. My experience with Canadian Pharmacy was pathetic, to say the least. I ordered for drugs a few months ago and I am yet to receive my package to date! My attempts to contact customer support have all been futile except for one occasion when I received an automated reply from the helpdesk team. The phone numbers provided seemingly do not work as well. Although the pharmacy claims to offer secure payment avenues, my bank has on several occasions call me concerning suspicious transactions on my credit card. Thankfully, my bank blocked all these transactions except for the one-time payment I made to this pharmacy. From my horrendous ordeal with this pharmacy, I can say that it is a scam. I would not advise anyone to order for drugs or make payments to this online drugstore.
