Shop-Online-Meds.com is an online drugstore claiming to offer safe and reliable pills without a prescription. Our investigation into this pharmacy finds a great deal wrong with these claims.

This online pharmacy specializes in pills for men’s performance issues, they also offer weight loss and herbal pills among others. They even feature an ‘Incredible’ offer of generic male performance drugs, though they were out of stock when we visited.
Unfortunately, we frequently found broken links on the site. Suggesting that the people behind this operation don’t really care enough to fix such problems.
Regulatory accreditation is an important way for consumers to have faith in the drugs they receive from online pill sellers. These associations hold their members to high standards of data protection and make sure they are operating in accordance with the law. This online pharmacy shows no evidence of being a member of any regulatory body.
LegitScript.com is a good place to check if an online drugstore in working to rules and doing things properly. Shop Online Meds have been given the status of a rogue drugstore after a review from LegitScript. Needless to say, this isn’t exactly good and suggests they are in violation of the law.
Well run businesses will not hide their contact information, after all, why would they need to? On the ‘Contact Us’ page of Shop-Online-Meds.com, they have a business name and address. The company name is Allpay Ltd and they are based in Mauritius. We haven’t found evidence to confirm that this is a real business, registered and operated in Mauritius. It may be an address for a mailbox or just simply a fake address, we can’t be sure either way.
We have our doubts about the address they give because the evidence seems to point towards the owners of this site being in Russia.
Domain Name Information
The domain details suggest that Russia is the real location rather than Mauritius. A privacy service from Moscow is used to hide the real contact information of the site’s owners. If you were a company based in outside of Russia it is unlikely you would use a Moscow domain name registrar. The domain was only registered a year ago, so doesn’t have a long track record of successfully selling medication.
It seems like the people which own this site run many other similar sites. The site, Pharmacy-4u.net, uses the same business name and address. There are also 46 other sites hosted on the same server.
There are social media links featured at the bottom of the page. The Twitter link goes to an account which hasn’t posted regularly for years. This Twitter account has a link to ED-Pharmacy-online.com, a site which is no longer active. This goes to show that the people behind Shop Online Meds have used and dropped other sites before, perhaps because they are running scam pharmacies.
The payment for pills you buy is taken on a different site. This is claimed to be secure, with the correct security certificates. The main site doesn’t have security in the same manner. This is a slight problem because they require you sign up and log in to their site before purchasing. Your log in details could be intercepted when you sent them across the Internet to the store.
Credit card, bank transfer and Western Union are the payment methods accepted on this site. It isn’t a great idea to use Western Union to buy medicine, however, as you don’t have any come back if things go wrong. They will only accept WU or bank transfer if you are the US and Canada for some unexplained reason.
Drugs are shipped in discrete packages and you can choose between airmail and express courier. If you are in the EU priority post is also an option. Tracking numbers are available for both airmail and courier, but not for priority post.
Customer reviews are a way for you to gauge how good a company is by the feedback other customers provide. On scam pharmacy stores you often find fake reviews which have been created by the owners of the site to trick people into having more trust than they should. There aren’t any fake reviews found here as there isn’t a Shop-Online-Meds.com reviews page to be found on the site.
Third-party review sites are often a great way to find genuine customer feedback. We have checked on review sites like Trustpilot, but we haven’t been able to find any customer testimonials for this business. This might suggest that there haven’t been many customers on this online store, the site is only a year old so this is perhaps understandable.
We give this site 2-stars out of five. Though they clearly have many issues that should put you off buying from this company, they aren’t going out of their way to lie and misrepresent the situation. They aren’t using fake reviews and fraudulent accreditation to increase the trust in their operation.
POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVESThere are also quite many online pharmacies on the net that have proved themselves to be excellent ones. We keep an eye on them as well. They get into our reviews from time to time, and you can see them on the pages of our site.
