The domain information for this pharmacy address tells us that it was first registered in 2015. Sites which have been around longer can often signify a more reliable and legit business, though 4 years is in the middle ground.
We can also see in the records that the owners of this store have decided to make use of a privacy service, offered by the registrar, to keep their contact information out of the public database. This can often, but by no means always, point towards the store being less than reputable.
Business Name and Address
The name of the business behind this online pharmacy is Coastal Health Group Inc. and though there isn’t an address on the store, aside from a Canadian PO box, we do find more information on their corporate website.
They provide two addresses on the corporate site, one in Barbados and one in Dubai, but none in Canada as we might have been expecting.
The Barbados location seems to be where this business is really operated from, as we have found Linkedin profiles from staff members confirming this. Despite this, it seems rather strange that this online pharmacy is positioning itself as a Canadian pharmacy when that really isn’t the case.
Coastal Health operates a number of other pharmacy stores alongside this one, and these are just the ones we know about.
Legal Approvals and Certifications
Certification of online pharmacies can help consumers make sure they are ordering medication from a reliable source. This online pharmacy prominently displays seals from two regulatory associations.
The regulatory associations, CIPA (Canadian International Pharmacy Association) and Pharmacy Checker are the most well-known bodies for regulating Canadian online drugstores. When we check with CIPA we do find that they are current members and are correctly displaying the seal.
Following the link to the Pharmacy Checker site, also shows that they are correctly registered with that association as well.
However, things are all rosy when it comes legal approval. LegitScript believes this online store isn’t correctly following the rules to make sure that they stay within the law for all the jurisdictions they operate in. The rating of a rogue Internet pharmacy could suggest that the site isn’t as safe as it could be.
Medications on Sale
This pill seller offers a wide range of treatments which are both brand and generic versions. You are only allowed to purchase 3-months worth of medication at a time, this is a rule that has been put in place by the CIPA regulatory association that this store is a member of.
The drugs are dispensed from not only Canada but also the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. This is a possible cause for concern, as it will lead to an increased chance of counterfeit or fake medication entering the supply chain.
This online pharmacy does correctly require you to provide a valid prescription to order pills. The prescription can be sent to their PO Box address, emailed, faxed or uploaded to their site. They suggest that you don’t post the prescription as it can take 2 weeks for them to check the script.
Unfortunately, we don’t have access to any coupons for this pharmacy at this time.
Payment and Delivery
The site is secure with a valid security certificate, which should keep your credit card information safe when you go through the checkout process. Additional protection is provided by Norton’s Shopping Guarantee, which includes a lowest price and purchase guarantee as well as ID theft protection for up to $10,000.
Delivery can be expected in between 2 and 4 weeks and costs $9.95 to the US. Outside of the US, the shipping charge starts at a minimum of $19.95 but can vary depending on where the pills are dispatched from.
This drugstore has many options available to customers who need help with their order. There are phone and fax numbers for the US (toll-free) and international lines too. They have Spanish speaking customer support agents available as well as English speakers.
Other support options include email, live chat, traditional post or contacting them via their active Facebook account. Customer support is available 7 days a week with hours of operation posted to the site.
WorldHealthLink.com reviews are easy to find in a section on the front page of the store. The customer feedback is collated by the site Canada Pharmacy Reviews with a few of the testimonials posted to the front page of the store.
Overall, the feedback from previous customers is good, with the pharmacy achieving 3.8 out of five. The customer comments are added to frequently and appear to be from genuine customers.
There is one slight concern with what otherwise seems like great customer recommendations, but it isn’t the comments themselves. The site which hosts these testimonials isn’t as independent as it might appear.
A check of the domain records shows us that both this site and World Health Link were registered using the same registrar, updated on the same day and use the same name servers. Clearly, the owners of the pharmacy, own the testimonial site too. This could mean that they are deleting and otherwise manipulating the feedback to show their drugstore in a better light, though we have no evidence that they have done this.
There are many reasons to suggest that this is a reliable pharmacy. They have great customer feedback, are regulated by two associations, have many customer support options and the site is secure.
There are a few things letting them down, however. The fact that they give the impression of being a Canadian based pharmacy when in reality they seem to be operating from Barbados is something of a concern. Additionally, pills are dispensed from not only Canada but other locations too.
For these reasons, our rating is 3.8 stars out of five. You can do a bit better than this online pharmacy.
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.

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.
