The information about this site found in the domain records reveals that this address was registered in 2015. Newer domains are naturally going to appear more of a risk than a store which has operated for far longer. The chances are increased that this is a scam because of how little time they have been online.
It isn’t normally good to find that the site hasn’t been around for very long and coupled with this, they are using a domain privacy service to hide their name and contact information. They are using a registrar in the Czech Republic which may point to that being the country of origin of this pharmacy.
There are a few obvious issues with this online drugstore. Firstly, the domain name is somewhat odd. Is it meant to be OK Pill and they just mistyped when registering the domain?
The second issue is that there isn’t a proper main site logo. They have a logo at the top of the page which says “Online Pharmacy Europe” but this is nothing like their domain name. You would normally expect the two to match up and when they don’t it suggests that this isn’t a very professional business.
Business Name and Address
This store claims to be operating in Europe though they give no more accurate information than that. This suggests that the Czech Republic might be where they are located based on what was found in the domain name record.
Legal Approvals and Certifications
Online pharmacies which operate in the EU are required to display the European common distance selling logo on every page of their site. This store fails to display this crucial logo and this means that they are operating illegally in Europe.
When we go to LegitScript to find out what they have concluded about this pharmacy, we are not surprised to see that they give the store the low classification of a ‘rogue’ site. This means that they believe the store isn’t operating within the law for the countries they sell to.
Medications on Sale
This store only offers a small range of both brand and generic drugs. Most of the pills they sell are men’s health drugs and the prices are somewhat higher than many other online pharmacies.
They don’t provide any details of where the drugs are dispensed from which isn’t a good thing to find. This problem is common with scam drugstores and leaves us with no way of being sure the drugs are safe. It is easy to assume the worst in a situation like this, but doing so could save you from purchasing drugs which are unsafe.
There aren’t any mentions of requiring a prescription to be found anywhere on the store’s pages. This is a frequent issue with scam sites and suggests that they don’t particularly care for the well-being of their customers.
They do say that a doctor will review your order and approve or decline it. Though on what basis this doctor is judging the merit of your order we have no idea, as the site doesn’t ask you to fill out a medical questionnaire. We suspect that this, in fact, doesn’t actually happen and all orders go through regardless.
When is a guarantee, not a guarantee of anything? When it’s on this online pharmacy apparently. They have a seal which claims to guarantee satisfaction and when you click on it you are taken to a page which explains this.
While you might imagine that a 100% satisfaction guarantee means you will get a refund or products resent if you are not completely happy, there is no such mention of anything like this.
They write about how their customer service will be happy to answer any questions and boast of customers only spending 5 minutes on the store before purchasing. But fail to give any details of a guarantee, so we have to assume that they don’t really offer this service.
No discount coupon has been located for this online pharmacy.
Payments and Deliveries
The store operates with a valid SSL security certificate and accepts payment via Visa, AmEx, Mastercard, JCB and Diners Club.
Shipping methods are airmail and courier which has tracking included. They offer free shipping on orders above the value of $90.
They mention on the site that you can contact customer support at any time for help, either by phone or email. However, if you do have any complaints with the service provided by this store, making contact with customer service could be tricky. They don’t provide a phone number or email address anywhere on the store, you means of contact is restricted to an online form only.
When looking around this store we see that they appear to have an Okpil.com reviews feed from Trustpilot. This box contains 3 customer testimonials and is the sort of thing that you would expect to update when new feedback is posted to the popular review site.
Something appears to be very wrong with this, however. The Trustpilot logo appears to be wrong, so we go to the review site to check. What we find when we get there is that the Okpil page has no feedback whatsoever.
In what is a new low point in fake customer feedback, this online pharmacy has tried to give the illusion that they have great testimonials on the well-known review site. These customer testimonials must be entirely fake for that reason.
There are far too many issues with this online store for us to conclude that they are anything more than a scam. They are hiding who they are, don’t have any regulation, they have faked their testimonials and we have no idea where the medication is dispensed from.
With these findings, it is not surprising that our rating is only 0.9 out of 5 stars.
It really isn’t difficult to find better online pharmacies than this one.
