What methods of payments do PharmacyChecker.com's verified online pharmacies accept?



Question:
What methods of payments do PharmacyChecker.com's verified online pharmacies accept?

Answer:

The short answer to that question is that payment methods vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, but sometimes these methods can be confusing, so we'd like to take this opportunity to explain the differences. Those methods include payment by credit card, electronic check, personal check or international money order. 

 

Credit Card

Most consumers buying online expect to pay by credit card, but for online pharmacies that dispense medication internationally this is not always easy. Due to pressure from the pharmaceutical industry and U.S. Food and Drug Administration, many reputable and verified international online pharmacies are not able to offer credit card payment options. This is unfortunate but should not reflect badly on the online pharmacies verified by PharmacyChecker.com.

 

Some PharmacyChecker-verified international online pharmacies are still offering credit card payment options. When you view an online pharmacy profile via PharmacyChecker.com's website, there is a category for payment options to inform you what to expect. 

 

Electronic Check

An electronic check (or eCheck) is an electronic version of a paper check used to make payments online. You may also see this method referred to as an electronic funds transfer (EFT) or an automated clearing house (ACH) payment. To make a payment with an electronic check, you simply provide the following information: Your bank routing number, your bank account number and the name on your bank account. The choice to use an electronic check can be daunting to some consumers, but our Verification Program requires members to handle personal and financial data securely.

 

Personal Check

PharmacyChecker.com verified online pharmacies that accept personal checks usually do so through mail, email and/or fax.

 

International Money Order

Unlike checks, money orders are prepaid meaning they're backed by large agencies or corporations instead of individuals, which means safety and reliability for you. When prompted to send money by mail, money orders are a far safer alternative to cash.

 

Some pharmacies require a customer to set up an account to order medication.

Setting up an account entails providing the online pharmacy with a variety of basic information such as your name, address, phone number and email address. In exchange, you are given a user name and password that you can use to order medications.
