Domain Information

The domain record for this website address shows that it was registered in 2013 and a German registrar was used. A domain of this age is longer than is often found with Scam online pharmacies, so this could potentially be a good sign of a more reputable operation.

We can also see that a domain privacy service has been used to make sure the owner’s real information can’t be located from this record. Normally, more reliable businesses don’t use privacy services to hide their genuine contact information, because why would they need to?

Web Platform

This online drugstore is named the Greater London Pharmacy and has a site logo which is a shield that has a crown over water on it. This makes you think that the pharmacy is based in England. however, when you read some of the content of the site you may change your mind.

It doesn’t read like it has been written by someone who is from Britain. Instead, it contains awkward phrases and oddly worded sentences.

Business Name and Address

The site doesn’t provide a business name besides Greater London Pharmacy, which doesn’t appear to be a genuine business name in the UK. Unfortunately, this online drugstore fails to provide any address details and this is part of a common pattern found with many scam pharmacies.

Legal Approvals

This pharmacy gives the appearance of being based in London, England and because of this, they should be following the legal rules for the operation of an online pharmacy in the UK. These rules include European legislation which requires the EU common distance selling logo to be featured on every page of the site where medication is offered for sale.

This pharmacy does not use this logo on their store. This means they are operating illegally if they are genuinely in the UK.

They also need to be registered with a British Government agency which oversees the selling of medication online. This organization is called the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and a check with their database shows that this pharmacy isn’t found.

When we run a check with LegitScript we find that they come to the same conclusion we do. That conclusion is that they aren’t operating legally for where they are based and the countries they sell to.

Medications on Sale

This pharmacy does seem to offer a reasonable array of medical treatments. They are trying to push men’s health products over other medications, they give this type of drug more prominence over everything else.

They don’t say exactly where the pills are dispensed from, only mentioning that the medication is manufactured in accordance with Indian FDA rules. So the drugs seem to be coming from India and not Britain like the name of the store might have you believe.

Drug Prices

The prices of the medication available aren’t as cheap as we have seen. They are mostly selling generic versions of well-known brands but despite this, the costs are fairly high. They even say that they don’t pay taxes and the pills come into the country unregistered, but are keen to point out that they don’t use child labor.

Even though these aren’t the cheapest prices we see there is still a question mark over the quality of the pills they offer and if they are genuine. The risk of getting pills from unknown manufacturers is there will be a good chance that they are fake or counterfeit drugs.

Prescription Requirements

This store does feature a prescription policy which would seem to be a good sign. If you actually read the policy you will change your mind, however. The prescription policy is a confusingly worded document that makes little sense. The upshot of the policy seems to be that they don’t require a prescription but you should check with a doctor before taking the pills. Coupon

We haven’t been able to find any good coupons for this pharmacy.

Payment and Deliveries

The checkout page of this store is secure and has a valid SSL certificate to make entering information safe. You can pay for your medication using Mastercard, Diners Club, Visa, JCB and American Express.

Shipping options are either express mail or registered mail. Express mail costs $30 and registered mail costs $15. Express mail is expected to take 10 to 15 business days and includes a tracking number, registered mail takes 15 to 30 days. These shipping options are free when your order value increases.

They add on a delivery insurance charge of $9.95, saying that it “protects your delivery 100%”. Elsewhere on the site, they say that they will reship products if your order goes missing, so this insurance seems pointless.

Customer Support

When it comes to complaints your customer support options are very limited. They have an online form and a phone number. The phone number doesn’t give you any information as to which country it is from. Though this site gives the impression of being in the UK, the phone number is likely a US toll-free number. Reviews

It is always useful to read what other customers think of a company you are going to order from. When looking for reviews it was difficult to find any on independent review sites. We have found a couple of testimonials on the store’s own product pages, however.

These reviews give a positive impression of the pharmacy and one of the drugs sold there. The testimonial from David, however, seems far too good to be true. It reads more like a promotional piece for this pharmacy rather than the opinion of a previous customer.

A genuine customer wouldn’t talk about how this pharmacy has “created an excellent platform” and built “its flawless reputation”. Genuine testimonials talk about how quick delivery was or how well customer support solved an issue they had, they don’t write marketing text about the company. This customer testimonial has to be fake and if that is the case it is also likely the others are too.


There are many things wrong with this pharmacy, the lack of transparency over who runs this business and where they are located, being one of the main issues.

They also lack regulation and the quality of the medication is in doubt. For these reasons, we advise against shopping here. We award just 0.9 out of five stars.

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.
