Domain Name Records
The domain information shows us that this site has been around for quite a while, and this is a sign of a legit business. The name was registered in 2010 and doesn’t expire until 2023. Most scam online pharmacies aren’t registered for anywhere near this long so this looks to be a really good indication of a reliable business.
Not so good is the fact that they are using a domain privacy service to hide their details from the records.
This website has been operating since 2012 and the company address can be easily found on every page. The address is for a retail outlet in Manitoba, Canada and this is where the You Drugmart pharmacy is located.
It is really trustworthy to find an online drugstore which has a physical pharmacy where the drugs are dispatched from. They do highlight the fact that all their products are dispatched from Canada.
An issue that we have discovered is that the website is hosted in Italy and not Canada as you would expect. This is a rather strange choice for the owners of this site and could suggest that they aren’t really in Canada as they appear to be. It will also mean that the site will load slower for people in the US and given that this is the site’s main market, this isn’t ideal.
Medication on Sale
They offer the normal range of pills you would expect from a pharmacy, their top-selling product does, however, seem to be the most well-known brand of male enhancement drugs.
The prices found on this site don’t seem to be particularly competitive. We have certainly found cheaper, this may be a reflection of the fact that they only seem to dispense from one location. Generic drugs are available as well as the brand name versions to keep costs down.
The majority of the drugs for sale on YouDrugstore do require a prescription. You are required to send this document to them before they will dispense your order.
Any online pharmacy should be operated in accordance with local laws and regulations to keep consumers safe. This medical retailer is based in Canada and therefore we would expect them to be members of CIPA and PharmacyChecker.com.
They do have a current membership with CIPA. This makes sure that they are using a Canadian pharmacy to dispense drugs and that they have proper policies in place for dealing with customer data in a safe and professional manner.
They are also correctly using the seal from Pharmacy Checker, having the status of an approved online pharmacy. Though they may be approved on this site, LegitScript.com lists them as having an unapproved status. This is because they have reviewed them and believe them to be in violation of the rules for dispensing drugs safely to the public.
Unfortunately, we haven’t found a coupon code for this online pharmacy.
Payments and Shipping
Drugs can be purchased from this store using credit cards and personal check. Though they warn that if you do wish to pay by check you will have to wait longer for the check to clear before they ship the drugs.
There are two options for shipping, standard and express. Standard shipping costs $15 for orders under $100, with orders over that value being free. Delivery will take between 5 and 10 business days and free tracking is included.
Express delivery costs $25 for orders of less than $100, but if you order more than that the cost goes down to $10. Delivery time is reduced to between 3 and 5 business days. You also get free tracking with this option.
Customer support would seem to be quite good with this online pharmacy. For example, they have a product recall policy in which they state, they will contact you should they get notification from the manufacturer of any issue with drugs you have purchased in the last six months.
If you want to find out if a company is going to deliver on what they promise, it is a really good idea to check what other customers are saying about the company. This is the reason that many online pharmacies use testimonial pages on their sites. The owners of these pharmacies know full well that positive reviews will encourage other people to complete transactions with them. Unfortunately, many scam online pharmacies resort to using fake testimonials because they don’t have any genuinely happy customers.
When looking for YouDrugstore.com reviews they don’t seem to have a page dedicated to customer testimonials on the site. They do have a few customer comments scrolling by on the home page. As you might imagine, they are very positive.
Reviews on the site itself aren’t going to be particularly impartial and since this site has been around for quite a while we can find other reviews elsewhere. There are customer feedback on PharmacyChecker.com and MyWOT.com.
The PharmacyChecker comments are very good, almost too good. This can sometimes suggest that they aren’t genuine customer feedback. The reviews found on MyWOT are quite different with one person believing that the store sells counterfeit drugs. These comments seem more likely to be genuine as they are clearly less than perfect and the date they were posted is more spread out.
This drugstore, on the face of it, appears to be a trustworthy store with some accreditation and being operated from a real pharmacy. There are, however, some troubling issues. The fact that the site is based in Italy is very odd and along with the domain privacy, might suggest that this store isn’t really run from the address they claim. There is also the inconsistent customer feedback and the Legit Script rating to consider.
For these reasons, we are giving this store 3.0 out of a possible 5.
Possible alternativesWhile 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.
