The Whois domain name records show that this pharmacy’s address was registered only two years ago. It has been our experience that new domains are very often associated with scam online pharmacies so this may not be a very good early indication.
The records also show that a privacy service has been used to make sure the real contact information of the owner isn’t easily available. This is another thing commonly found with more dubious online drugstores and something we don’t like to see.
This pharmacy uses a modern design as you would expect from such a new store. They use videos embedded on the homepage to better explain why you should use them.
Having videos on their site like this allows us some idea of how popular their store is. Their “How It Works” video has received 5,756 views in the year it has been posted. Now, it is likely that most people who visit the store won’t view the videos, so this number shows that the pharmacy is fairly popular.
