Tip 1. Check Whether the Site Has Secured Connection
Check the address bar of the website. You should see “https” there, not “http”. The “https” wording means that an SSL certificate is installed on the site and all information is transmitted via a secure protocol. SSL-certificate does not allow fraudsters to intercept or replace personal data of customers: contact information, bank card numbers, logins, passwords, email addresses, etc.
If you see http, it means that, firstly, the pharmacy cuts corners on installing a relatively inexpensive SSL certificate (or lacks basic knowledge), and secondly, your personal data, including financial ones, may not be secure.
Tip 2. Look at Available Brands
Look at the range of products that online pharmacy offers. If you see well-known brands (or generics), the logos of official manufacturers, such as Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline plc., AbbVie pharmaceuticals, Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, this is a good sign. If you see drugs with unknown / incomprehensible names there, they may be poor-quality surrogates.
Tip 3. Check the Information on the Product Pages
Reliable pharmacy is characterized by the availability of complete and comprehensive information on any of the available drugs. For example, you are looking for a drug to treat erectile dysfunction (Levitra) or a remedy for diabetes (Januvia). In a good drugstore, you will be offered complete instructions for use with indications and contraindications, a description of compatibility with other meds / substances / food products and other information that every patient who is taking this drug should know.
Tip 4. Check for Customer Service
The pharmacy that values its reputation has a consultant (consultants) ready to advise the client on any issue related to the delivery of drugs, etc. If you have received an unintelligible answer, you may need to choose another Internet pharmacy. In addition, web chemist shops usually post all the detailed instructions and FAQs on their portals so that any person can quickly understand the intricacies of making an order. Informativeness matters.
Tip 5. Take a Look at Payment Methods
Go to the order page of a particular drug and see what payment methods are available. You can also see a separate section “Payments” or something like that on the site. Such methods as American Express, VISA, MasterCard, eCheck, or even Bitcoin (BTC) along with classic payment methods show that the pharmacy prefers legitimate payment methods. However, if you see, say, only anonymous cryptocurrencies (for example, Monero) as a method of payment, it most likely means that there is something wrong with this pharmacy.
Tip 6. Don’t Choose a Drugstore Based on Spam Solicitation
Reliable online pharmacies usually respect the privacy of users and do not send annoying spam emails. They do not transfer data to third parties, do not receive third parties’ data from hackers, and do not use unfair advertising methods. Therefore, if some online pharmacy constantly bothers you with spam emails, you probably should not use its services.
Tip 7. Check Activity on the Website
If the information on the site has not been updated for a long time, there are no new articles on the blog, perhaps the owners simply bailed on this online pharmacy. Accordingly, one should not expect high quality service from it (or probably the website is simply deserted and doesn’t work).
The Internet can be a great way to save your budget. However, you should be careful when choosing a supplier of drugs and medical products. We, at Together Rx Access®, care about your health and the health of your loved ones therefore we are constantly working to improve our pharmacy, making it better every day.
