Domain Name Information
When we check the domain records for this pharmacy site we can see that the address has been registered since 2002. This length of registration normally points towards a more legit and safe pharmacy business.
A check with the Internet Archive Wayback Machine shows that this pharmacy hasn’t been operating since 2002 as the record shows. In fact, their site first appears in 2015 in a beta release of their service.
The domain records also show that the contact information for the registrant says NowRx in California, US. This is good because it is common to find privacy services used by many pharmacies to hide their contact information, but not so with this business.
They provide an address on their site in Mountain View, California, US. When we check this address it is clearly a genuine business location for the company.
NowRx Inc. launched in 2016 and have gained $10 million in funding from crowdfunding website SeedInvest and other sources. Their annual revenues top $5 million and have supplied over 50,000 prescriptions.
This pharmacy is based in California, so a check with the California State Board of Pharmacy should show that they are registered. We find that they are correctly registered as they should be.
When we look to LegitScript for their assessment of this online pharmacy we find that they classify them as unverified. This means that they aren’t considered unsafe but means that the store isn’t part of LegitScript’s accreditation program.
This online pharmacy is in the business of selling prescription medications. They do require a valid prescription before they will dispense. You can upload an image of your prescription but they will still need to have the original sent to them before they will actually dispatch your order to you.
Your doctor can send your prescription to this online pharmacy if you choose. This can be done electronically via the SureScripts pharmacy management system, making ordering from the store as easy as possible.
They have developed an app for Android and Apple phones. This gives customers the power to transfer refills to the pharmacy and monitor your order as it makes its way to you.
You can manage your payment choices and be reminded when to take your pills. You can even consult with a pharmacist via video chat if you need to know more about your meds or condition.
The app seems to be mostly well received by customers with an overall rating of 4 on Google Play and 3.5 out of 5 on Apple’s App Store. There are a few customers with issues of the app crashing which is dragging down the overall rating as there aren’t that many testimonials.
Payment and Shipping
To pay for your meds they offer co-pays with all major insurances and accept most credit cards.
The big selling point of this pharmacy is their delivery options. They offer free same-day delivery or one-hour delivery at the cost of $5. The restriction on this is that they will only deliver to the San Francisco Bay Area, though not the city of San Francisco itself.
There are 70 NowRx.com reviews found on the independent site Yelp. The overall rating of the pharmacy is 5 out of 5 and comments seem to be from genuine customers.
People seem to be very happy with the speed of service and the reasonable costs of the drugs. Not everyone is happy though, with a few people having issues with signing up via the app and contacting customer support. The good feedback far outnumbers the bad, however.
This online pharmacy hasn’t been around too long but they seem to have won over many happy customers with their fast delivery service. They have the legit financial backing to make sure they have the funding to expand their business. They are also correctly regulated in California and aren’t hiding who they are.
There is a problem with this drugstore, however. They are very limited in the locations that they will dispatch meds to and for these reasons we award 4 stars out of 5.
