Question: What is an online pharmacy?
Online pharmacies are websites that market and sell prescription medication via the Internet. Sometimes online pharmacies are owned and operated by a brick-and-mortar pharmacy and orders are filled by that one pharmacy. In other cases, online pharmacies act as intermediaries and partner with multiple pharmacies. In this latter model, an order is placed and medication purchased on a website is referred to one of several licensed pharmacies that dispenses prescription drugs by mail. The PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program verifies the licenses of all pharmacies that fill orders placed through such an online pharmacy.Back to all FAQs
