Domain Name Information
The details for this German domain don’t tell us very much about the store. Normally, we would expect to find out when the domain was registered and some details about who it belongs to, but none of that is available here.
The site is predominantly in written German, they do offer translations to English and Russian. Unfortunately, the translation doesn’t work on all of the pages of the site, so it is very easy to find yourself on part of the store where there is no language support unless you speak German.
Business Contact Details
There are some address and business information on the store’s contact page. They are based in Wittenberg, Germany. This is a genuine location that shows up on Google maps.
This business was started by two brothers out of their family business a pharmacy store. The brothers expanded the business between 2002 and 2004 using the company name MyCare.
They moved to their current location in 2009. Still in Wittenberg, the new facility allows for increased dispensing of medication from the 4,500 square meter warehouse. They are now able to dispatch up to 10,000 packages per day.
In 2012, the business reached the milestone of dispensing medication to their millionth customer. Reaching a milestone like this is only possible from a legit business and shows that many customers put their trust in the pharmacy.

We have found many different locations for MyCare.de reviews online. There is a Trustpilot page for the store as well as a Facebook page that contains customer testimonials. The customer feedback we’ve found is very mixed, with many good comments but a lot of unhappy customers too.
They have an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5 on Facebook, but despite this, it is easy to find very unhappy customers.
On their Trustpilot page, the feedback is far more mixed, with almost as many 1-star customer reports as there are 5-star. This is a concern and shows that the business needs to change some of the ways they deal with their customers.
Some customers report very serious problems with delivery problems, payment restrictions and issues with customer service.
Other people report having a great experience with the pharmacy, so this clearly isn’t most people’s finding on using the store.
This pharmacy has been operating for a long time and provides correct information about where they are based. They are also operating within the law, having the correct European regulation.
There are a few problems with this online drugstore, however. Customers have reported problems with receiving medication and there is an issue with translation on the store. We award this pharmacy 4 stars out of a possible 5.
