IndianPharma.co is a drugstore which claims to have been in business for more than 9 years. They also claim to be one of the leading pharmacies online with low prices. Our look at this drugstore, however, contradicts what they are claiming suggesting that this store may not be a great as they want you to believe.

Domain Name Information
This pharmacy is using a .co domain name, this won’t have been their first choice and suggests that they haven’t been online for long. Checking the domain name records confirms this, with their address having been created in 2017. Pharmacies which haven’t been online for long are more of a risk in our experience and this store even claimed to have been operating for 9 years which doesn’t seem true.
Also not great to discover is that they are using a domain privacy service to hide their real contact information. This could suggest that they are keen to hide this information from customers and is something commonly found with scam pharmacies.
Business Contact Details
The domain name would suggest that this pharmacy business is based in India, but they don’t provide a contact address to confirm this. There is also a lack of a business name on the store. This leaves us in the dark as to who is operating this drugstore or even if they are really in India as the site address suggests.
Regulation is created to make sure that customers of online drugstores are not subject to fraud or data breaches. This pharmacy doesn’t have any regulatory seals on their store or mention anything about being regulated. They do mention in passing the Indian FDA, though there isn’t actually an organization by that name and they provide nothing to confirm any such regulation.
This issue is confirmed when we look at what LegitScript thinks of this store. They give the store their lowest available classification of a rogue business.
While their prices are fairly cheap, they aren’t close to the cheapest we see available online. We also aren’t completely sure where the pills are dispatched from, though they are presumably coming from India given the name of the site.
They do say that a prescription is needed to order the medicines which require it. The pharmacy has a fax number and email address to send in the prescription. They say that if a valid prescription isn’t provided within three days the order won’t be fulfilled.
However, we are skeptical over whether they actually abide by their own rules here. It is common for scam pharmacies to make claims that they don’t follow and that could be the case with this store.
The completion of the checkout process takes place on a different site. This page is, fortunately, secured with a valid security certificate. They take payment using the following methods:
- American Express
There is a choice between airmail or courier delivery which benefits from tracking. Airmail is charged at $9.95 and courier is $29.95. Airmail can take 3 weeks and courier up to 9 days. You can also choose to add insurance to your bill at a 10% additional cost, though this is something which should already be provided by the pharmacy at no extra cost.
A testimonial page is featured in the store. There are many great IndianPharma.co reviews from happy customers on this page.
While these customer comments might seem reassuring about the reliability of the store, you shouldn’t be so trusting. These comments are also found on other sites. A search using a section of one of the testimonials shows this same comment turning up on over 150 other web pages.
The use of fake testimonials shows that this isn’t likely to be a legit pharmacy which you can trust.
This pharmacy doesn’t have any regulation or provide any details of where the pills are dispensed from. This is a concern and suggests that the medication they are offering might not be as genuine as customers would hope. They are also using fake testimonials and for these reasons, we only award them 2 stars.
