Domain Information

Public records of domain name details are available for most website addresses. Looking at the record for this site tells us that the name was first registered in 2016 and expires in two years time. Longer registrations tend to imply a more trustworthy business as Scam sites are often very short lived.

A privacy service has been used to make sure the real contact details and the name of the owner are kept out of these records. This is normal practice for pharmacies which are looking to rip people off, for obvious reasons.



Affiliated Sites

There is a large number of related pharmacy sites to this one. They share many similarities and link through to the same checkout ordering site. Many of the sites will be operated by the same people, though the details of who really owns the sites will be hidden.


There are over 100 examples of sites like this which may be part of the Pills Prompt Buy affiliate program.




Business Name and Address

It is good to see a business name and address on pharmacy sites. It gives you more options if you need to contact them, for one, and shows that they have nothing to hide, which would make them seem more trustworthy.


Sometimes, however, fake addresses are used to deceive website visitors. In this case, there isn’t a fake address, in fact, there are no contact details whatsoever, the real owners are hidden from us. This means, we have no idea for sure where they are located, though there is a suspicion that this store is administered from Brazil.



Legal Approval and Certification

Legal approval helps you, as a consumer of medicine from online pharmacies, to make better choices when choosing where to buy your drugs. This online drugstore shows four seals in the footer of the site from regulatory associations for Canadian based businesses.


It should be possible to click on these seals to check they are valid, but it isn’t possible here. When checking with the CIPA database we discover that they are using that seal fraudulently. They are not members of this regulatory association and the same is true of the claimed MIPA membership.

They also show a logo from Health Pricer. Once again, when we check that site we find that they have no legitimate reason to use that logo and are not members. The remaining seal says ‘CPA Approved’ but we have no idea what association this is from and is likely made up.


This online drugstore has been reviewed by LegitScript and the findings aren’t good. They give the site a rating of ‘Rogue, believing them to be in violation of applicable law for the areas they operate in.


Medication on Sale

This online drugstore has a fairly average range of medication available. Treatments include weight loss, diabetes, arthritis and antibiotics, but the main focus of the store is clearly men’s health pills.


There is no mention on the site of where the pills are dispensed, we don’t even know which country the pills are dispatched from. This massively increases the risk of fake and counterfeit medicines being sold by this store.



Prescription Requirements

This site doesn’t require you to have a valid prescription for any of the pills on sale. This isn’t a good sign of a trustworthy business, as they are selling medication which needs to be prescribed for patient safety. Coupon

We are unable to find a coupon for this online pharmacy.




Payment for pills can be made using Mastercard and Visa. You are diverted to a different site to complete your purchase due to this being part of an affiliate network as mentioned above.



Shipping options are either airmail or EMS. Airmail will cost you $9.95 and you can expect delivery in 2 to 3 weeks. EMS will cost $19.95 with delivery in 3 to 8 business days. EMS benefits from tracking and this shipping is free if you spend over $300. Airmail delivery costs are removed on orders over $200.


There is an additional charge of $4.95 for delivery insurance, as well as that, another $4.95 is charged for discreet packaging. These two charges, which add nearly $10 to your bill, aren’t mentioned prior to getting to the final checkout page and they make it as difficult as possible to deselect these options.


In reality, we doubt that these charges really make any difference to your order. If your order is lost they should reship anyway and are we really to believe that their normal packaging announces clearly what is contained within? They are just trying to scare you into giving them more money for no additional benefit.



Customer Support

If you have any complaints with an order made on this site your options are limited. They have two phone numbers, one for the US and one for the UK, but these are likely focused on sales rather than support. There is an online form for customer support but good luck if you need to use it. Reviews and Testimonials

Unsurprisingly, a drugstore with lots of great customer feedback will find themselves with more sales. It is for this reason, that we all too often find fake customer comments featured on pharmacy stores.


Customer testimonials can be a great way to find out if you should really put your trust in an online pharmacy.


The reviews found on their own site are all very positive. These customers praise how well the company performs and how good the drugs are.

These testimonials could be convincing to potential customers, but they are entirely fake. They are found on a large number of other sites, in fact, they are duplicated on over 3,600 other web pages.


A review found on an independent site casts doubt on their stated delivery times and this is the only genuine customer feedback we have been able to find.




Our investigation into this pharmacy shows very little to recommend it. They are using fake reviews, their contact details are hidden and we have no clue as to where the pills are dispensed from.


For these reasons, and others we are only going to award 1.2 stars out of a maximum of five.


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.
