Prescriptionpoint.com is an international pharmacy that supplies quality prescription medication. This was my first impression when I visited the site. It was in the FAQ menu where I learned that Prescription Point isn’t a pharmacy but is instead a business which serves as a mediator between you and affiliate dispensaries with a primary focus on prescription drugs, but also OTC drugs. This immediately lowered my hopes of getting a physical location for the business. Next, I started looking for information regarding the number of years they’ve provided their services and that wasn’t quite obvious. The “about us” menu doesn’t provide that information. I did manage to learn that the site’s blog launched around 2010.
In the FAQ section, it also became apparent that they accept valid prescriptions from prospective customers. Since Prescription point is not itself a pharmacy, they subsequently fill in your uploaded or faxed prescriptions to an affiliated pharmacy once they have decided on which of their affiliate pharmacies will ship the drug. Shipping location is chosen based on the availability of requested product and proximity to a destination.
Prescription point does not meddle in controlled substances and does not provide drugs sensitive to temperature like insulin. This vendor does provide erectile dysfunction treatment. The store has Viagra for $89.30 on twelve pills and the same amount of Levitra for $97.00. It was comforting to find FDA-approved drugs. Satisfied with the prices, I checked for payment methods. This intermediary accepts international money orders or bank certified checks – not as secure as shopping with a credit card(see fake money orders, excess scams). Products are delivered 2-4 weeks after they leave the pharmacy. Drugs ship from affiliate dispensaries in Mauritius, Singapore, New Zealand, India, United Kingdom, Canada, and the US. There is a $9.95 US shipping fee per patient.
I was able to get in touch with customer service via the toll-free line after a couple calls and I inquired about refunds. They referred me to the relevant portion of the FAQ’s and confirmed that they don’t do refunds.
After that, I felt it was especially necessary to find credible customer reviews. If you are going to buy from a store that doesn’t do refunds, consistently positive customer experience is a no-brainer. Thankfully, I was able to find both independent reviews outside the website and on-site reviews on Prescriptionpoint.com.
On an independent pharmacy review of Prescription Point, I got to learn about another red flag. A customer named Robert recalled his experience using this pharmacy intermediary. He says that he placed an order on the website after which he was contacted presumably by customer service who said all that remained was to “‘finish’ the order”. The customer service agent then requested for billing information which Robert complied with and gave over the phone. “They said 4 to 6 weeks to receive your order, then hung up”. He received another phone call and an email where he was separately informed that his shipment of Levitra was coming from Turkey. Robert immediately understood that to be the reason that delivery would take so long. He was now skeptical because “Bayer DOES NOT MANUFACTURE LEVITRA IN TURKEY!”.
I’m not sure if he asked before purchase or afterwards, but he was told “no refunds once order is placed“, just like I was told. Of course, it would be surprising if there were no customer reviews on a website of this kind.
I also came across a few plastered on the home page. There was an experience from Billie who lives in St. Louis, Missouri in the United States. Billie expressed his thanks “for the quick response in regards to my prescriptions”. Billie faxed his order into their office and received his medications “just 10 days later”. No idea where his medications shipped from. So, I was skeptical about this review, especially as it is on the website. But, at least I now had a balanced view of Prescription Point.
Prescriptionpoint.com Reviews 2017
I then thought it would be would be wise to see if I could find more recent reviews. I searched and found some from last year. The problem was they were all on the Prescriptionpoint website.
I read through one by a customer named Jim who expressed his appreciation “for the buySAFE guarantee”. He shared that he had “never used an online pharmacy before”, which is why he was so appreciative of the “extra efforts” the business puts in the reassure new customers.
Again, it’s not bad to see positive customer reviews but honesty is as important as the availability of such reviews. It is a distinct possibility that the vendors are embarking on an aggressive marketing strategy to prop up sales.
So, next I did something I have now made a practice of doing. I visited the scam busting website, scamadviser.com. I ran a check on the website which revealed that while the website is Canada based, the real location is being hidden.
Prescriptionpoint.com Coupon Codes
Lastly, I tried to find out if Prescriptionpoint.com offered any discounts or coupon codes. It is an increasingly common marketing strategy and one that has been a resounding success wherever it is accompanied by quality service and products. And to my surprise, this pharmacy intermediary offers none whatsoever. Either they are satisfied enough with their customer base to the point they don’t see the wisdom in doing discount promos or offering coupons or maybe that is just the case at the moment. If it is the latter, time will tell. Customers on other similar sites enjoy stuff like free shipping and crazy discounts like those for returning customers and even greater for returning customers with coupon codes. I was disappointed at this point.
So, that was my experience surfing through the Prescriptionpoint.com website. It’s a professional looking website with a considerably extensive range of products including prescription drugs, OTC drugs and consumer products. I came looking for a reliable way to order prescription ED drugs like Viagra and Levitra and they certainly offer those drugs at a cheaper price along with a refill service. Customer care is active but I was not thrilled to find out about their no refund policy as did another buyer who wrote an independent review on another site. The reviews on the site were favorable and praised the customer service as well as speed of delivery. It’s usually wise to compare on-site reviews with independent ones. There were concerns that arose around the apparent inability to find the physical location for the store and the apparent absence of discounts or coupon codes. I also came across an independent review suggesting drugs are shipped from locations where they are supposed to be unavailable leading to delayed delivery.
I left the site unconvinced about making this Canadian and international pharmacy intermediary my go-to destination for my prescriptions, but since they brandished valid certifications from IPABC and CIPA and I could find Viagra for a good price, I will give it a try. They might turn out to be of service. I will give Prescriptionpoint.com 3 stars out of 5.
