ShopAntibioticsOnline.com is a pharmacy site that claims to be the top provider of antibiotics online. They say that they give their customers the best weekly deals and cheapest worldwide prices. Our look into the operation of this pharmacy shows to us that you would do well to take a pass on this drugstore, however.

Domain Name Information
The details found in the domain records look fairly good for this pharmacy. They have been registered since 2013 and this is longer than many other stores which turned out to be scams.
Something which could point towards them being more likely to be a scam is the information about ownership. While it is good to see that they aren’t trying to hide their contact information in the domain name records, it does tell us that the store is owned by an individual located in Russia.
Business Contact Details
While we might have expected an address for Russia to be found on the pages of the store, nothing like this can be found. They don’t provide any information about the ownership of the pharmacy in the store’s pages. This makes the pharmacy more likely to be a scam.
There aren’t any regulatory seals on the site. These would normally provide some indication that the business is following a set of rules for the dispensing of medication online. Without such regulatory approvals, there are greater risks with this pharmacy.
When we look to the findings of LegitScript we can see that they don’t look at the store favorably. They give them their lowest possible rating of a rogue drugstore which is operating outside of the applicable rules.
As you might imagine based on the name of the store, they sell antibiotics and nothing else. Also, no brand name pills are offered here, only generics.
While they don’t tell us exactly where the pills are dispensed from, there are some indications that they are dispatched from India. Since they don’t give us any information about which company either manufactures or dispenses the pills there could be some very serious problems with the pharmacy.
It means that they are far more likely to be lower quality pills than you would want. They could even be fake medications and there is simply no way of being certain by just looking at the pills they send. You could go to the expense to find out if the drugs contain the active ingredients they should, but this rather defeats the benefits of purchasing online.
The pharmacy store is mentioned in an FDA notice about fraudulent online drugstores. They claim the store and others, are selling drugs that aren’t approved for sale in the US or are misbranded medications. They also mention that the store doesn’t require a valid prescription for the pills it dispenses.
Payment and Shipping
We find a significant problem when looking to complete a purchase on the store. They don’t have a valid SSL certificate, which means that your purchase details could be intercepted when you enter them on the site. For this reason, making a purchase from this pharmacy is an unacceptable risk which you should avoid.
If you still want to purchase, despite our warnings, they take the following payments:
- Diners Club
Shipping is either via registered mail or express delivery. Registered mail costs $15 and can take between 15 and 30 days to arrive. Express is more expensive at $30 and they claim to have your meds with you in 10 to 15 days.
Even though this pharmacy has been in business for nearly 7 years, we are unable to find any ShopAntibioticsOnline.com reviews. This could indicate that they don’t get many customers to their store and this probably isn’t a good thing.
It does mean that a purchase from this pharmacy is a bigger risk than from a store with customer feedback. We simply can’t be sure of the service they provide to their customers because of this.
On looking into this pharmacy the problems we uncovered are larger than a customer should have to face. They lack the basic level of security to make purchasing on the store secure, they don’t provide enough information about where the pills are dispensed from and the FDA has a problem with the site.
For these reasons and more, we can only give the store 2 stars out of five.
