Domain Name Information
The domain record shows that this site hasn’t been online for very long. They have only been operating this store for a couple of years and this can often be a warning sign of a pharmacy which isn’t legit.
On the positive side though, the contact information for the owner of this store isn’t hidden. It shows that the site is owned by Pfizer Inc. and gives an address in New York, USA.
Business Contact Details
The address for Pfizer given in the domain name record is the company’s headquarters. However, when looking for business information on the pharmacy site it appears that Pfizer doesn’t operate the site.
MedVantx is the ‘doing business as’ name which ‘AmeriPharm, Inc.’ using as branding on the site. They only provide a PO box address as contact though. The address of this business is found elsewhere online. We have also found out that they have been in business since 2002 and also operate their own separate pharmacy store.
AmeriPharm Inc. has won approval for the safe operation of an online drugstore from NABP. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy regulate the sale of online pharmacies in the USA and AmeriPharm’s registration number is 4351968.
They are registered as part of the VIPPS program but strangely they don’t display the seal on this pharmacy site. It can, however, be found featured on their own pharmacy store MedvantxRx.com.
LegitScript haven’t checked whether this store is really as legit at it would appear. It is for this reason, that they give the site a rating of unverified.
Medication on Sale
This online pharmacy is only selling one type of product and as it is from Pfizer buy men’s health pills direct from the manufacturer. This certainly means that the pills will be legit and safe but also rather expensive compared to other online options. Each tablet from this pharmacy will cost you $34.
You do need to provide a valid prescription when ordering from this store. They will need your doctor to fax or electronically submit the prescription to them before they can dispense your order.
The launch of this online men’s health pill seller did attract some media attention in 2017. There were reports about the launch from the likes of CBS, the Chicago Tribune and Time Magazine.
The launch of this pharmacy was in response to the expiration of the patent owned by Pfizer. This was their way of selling a generic version of the men’s health drug, which at the time was manufactured by a subsidiary. They have since changed to selling the brand name original version through this store.
Payment and Shipping
- American Express
Free standard shipping is offered by this store. This standard option takes 3 to 8 business days and they have an expedited service if you need the pills faster. Expedited shipping is next day delivery at the cost of $25, though they currently have a special offer so you can get this for free.
Despite this site being from a well-known pharmaceutical business, and the store having received a lot of attention when it launched, we are unable to find any Pfizerdirect.com reviews or complaints. This could point to the store not receiving a large number of customers, which given the prices, wouldn’t be completely out of the question.
This online pharmacy is owned by a large and successful multinational pharmaceutical business and is clearly a safe place to purchase the one drug that they sell. Though the sales and order fulfillment are handled by a different business, this other pharmacy company is correctly registered with the US authority which oversees medical sales.
Another good feature we have found, though only temporary, is the free next day shipping option. Standard delivery is always free when this offer ends. The downside with this store is the high price charged per pill. We have decided to award 4 stars out of a maximum rating of five.
