Review: Legal But Not Recommended Pharmacy from the USA

What is Canada Med Shop?


Canada Med Shop claims to be the best online pharmacy selling prescription drugs. The company is owned by Dawn Polley, an ex-president of CIPA and a pharmacist with an experience exceeding 20 years. The shop is located in Canada and ships its medications only to US customers but it wants to start shipping around the globe in the future. They say the health of their customers is their top priority and they focus on RX drugs to facilitate customer’s life. The pharmacy is offering a free online pharmacist consultation.

What Can You Buy in Canada Med Shop?

Canada Med Shop offers both brand and generic drugs. The company claims to sell high-quality products from Canada and international fulfillment centers from Mauritius, New Zealand, Singapore, Turkey, United Kingdom, India and the United States.

There are no drug categories on the website but I found out that they sell RX drugs for asthma, quit smoking, birth control, cholesterol lowering, erectile dysfunction and heart diseases. They mention that the pharmacy does not sell any controlled or narcotic preparations.

The front page presents some of the top-selling prescription products:


I cannot check the assortment of the pharmacy since you are supposed to search the definite drug by its name. From my point of view, it is not convenient. I was mostly interested in pills for erectile dysfunction. I found only basic medications for this condition: Viagra, Cialis, Levitra (both brand and a generic version for all drugs). The store used to have Avana in its stock but currently, it’s not available. I give 3 stars for this unit since the pharmacy seems to have an average selection of drugs.

Price Policy

Canada Med Shop claims to offer the lowest prices online.


Here you can buy brand Viagra for $17, generic Viagra for $2.2, brand Cialis for $4.3, generic Cialis for $1, brand Levitra for $13, and generic Levitra for $3. The price depends on the number of pills you order. I cannot say that these prices are low but they seem to average. You can easily find cheaper options on the net.

The website advertises new low prices on the front page:

  • Lipitor 20mg – $133.65;
  • Cialis 5mg – $358.39;
  • Crestor 20mg – $148.50;
  • Singulair 10mg – $161.37;
  • Plavix 75mg – $183.15;
  • Aciphex 20mg – $119.79;
  • Zoloft 25mg – $156.5

These prices are also far from being affordable. I give Canada Med Shop 2 stars for this unit.

Shipping Policy

Regretfully, the pharmacy is currently shipping to the US but they will try to arrange an international delivery in the future. They do not offer a free delivery. Customers will have to pay a shipping fee $shipping9.95 per order or more than this sum if the order exceeds the weight limits. The drugs are being delivered by mail within 10-18 business days.

I am looking for 100% satisfaction guarantee or refund policy, but unfortunately, offers neither of them, however, they guarantee a delivery of goods.

The company receives 1 star for this unit since they only ship to one country, offer no free delivery, and only one shipping option is available.

Payment Options

Currently, Canada Med Shop accepts credit cards only for the payment of an order. The store receives 1 star for this unit since the payment options are too limited. Other websites selling drugs offer much more options for the convenience of a customer.

Technical Characteristics of

Page Loading Speed

I check the website’s loading indicators with the help of Google PageSpeed Insights. It turned out that the speed of loading was unavailable and optimization indicators were medium.


Obviously, the website has some loading problems with both desktop and mobile versions. The total score for this unit is only 1.7 stars out of 5.

Checking Mobile Version

I was upset that does not have a mobile version. According to Google, the website is not mobile-friendly:


I suspect that customers using mobile devices will have some problems with this website. Clickable elements are too close together, the test is too small to read, the icons are tiny.

I recommend the website’s template designer to adapt the website for mobile users. Otherwise, they will lose many customers as most of them order drugs online via smartphones. 1 star for this unit.

Checking Secure Connection

The pharmacy claims that it has taken all necessary actions to make the website safe for customers so that they can use their credit card when purchasing drugs. But it turned out that does not have a secure connection. The website does not even have the minimal encryption required so I think that the customers’ personal data are at risk:

zero safety

I definitely recommend the website’s developer to provide at least a 128-bit SSL encryption. Also, it would be nice to see information about the website’ owner and the certification authority. So far, I give the company 1 star for this unit.

Checking Antivirus

I noticed that the website has a Norton antivirus on its website which evidences that the pharmacy provides its clients a guaranteed shopping experience for total peace of mind over their purchase.


Norton protects the website from hackers, ransomware, viruses, spyware, malware and other online threats. Considering this, I give 5 stars for this unit.

Convenience of Ordering

First of all, customers need to register on to start shopping. Existing customers need to log in. I know that customers do not really love such activities as they take extra time and efforts.

Orders can be placed online, via fax, email, or via phone 1-877-612-9112 during business hours. The pharmacy gives short instructions for each option on the website.


The ordering process is the same as on other online websites. After registration, you need to find the desired medication, select the dosage and number of tablets and add it to the virtual shopping cart. Then you need to proceed to checkout. If you buy prescription products, you need to send a copy of your RX by email or by fax to CanadaMedShop.

Once you placed an order, the Customer Support manager will contact you to confirm your shipping details, preferred payment option, and verify your RX within 24 hours.

Unlike other websites, this one did not arrange its drugs into categories according to the disease they are intended for. Customers can search for the desired item by its name in a search bar but I would also prefer to see drug categories on the website.


It was difficult for me to find the lowest price per pills since this information is not indicated on the site.

For my point of view, has some drawback which does not make this website convenient. 3 stars for this unit.

Is Legit?

Checking the Rating on

I have analyzed the website through scam advisor and found out that is a legitimate website, however, the verification service detected that the website’s real location is the USA but it may somehow relate to Canada. Besides, the store is not popular among customers.


The website doesn’t look like a scam. I also found out that this online pharmacy has been operating for almost 4 years, which is a good indicator. Although there was a mess with the website’s location, ScamAdviser gives a 98% trust rating to this store. Still, it advises customers to review this information carefully before placing orders via this site. I give 4.5 stars out of 5 for this unit.

Do We Need a Prescription?

Canada Med Shop mentions that they cannot process and ship an RX order without the original prescription. After placing an order, customers can send an RX copy online, via phone, fax or mail. All ED pills available on this website are prescription-based:


The amount of the refills will depend on the doctor’s prescription but a 1 year’s supply is the most amount a doctor can prescribe. A prescription-based business is a good sign. RZ requirement improves a reputation of CanadaMedShop and increases the customers’ chances for successful shopping. The pharmacy receives 5 stars for this unit.

Checking CanadaMedShop Reputation on

According to LegitScript, this online pharmacy is unapproved since it does not comply with LegitScript Internet pharmacies verification standards.


Regretfully, might violate the standards and laws regulating international pharmaceutical activity, that’s why the store. receives 1 star for this unit.


I notice 3 icons on the website that confirm its legitimacy:

certificates is an active member of Pharmacy Checker and CIPA – Canadian International Pharmacy Association, which testifies that this website dispenses through a licensed pharmacy, requires a prescription, provides address and phone on the website, keeps customers’ personal/medical information confidential, secures financial information customers send online.

The membership in the IPABC (the International Pharmacy Association of British Columbia) means that the pharmacy complies with the highest standards of care.

Canada Med Shop confirmed its legitimacy and receives 5 stars for this unit. Reviews

Customer On-Site Reviews

Customer feedbacks posted online describe customer experience with different services and companies. CanadianMedShop has claimed on its website that they offer the lowest prices and provide complete safety. How can I trust these promises without proof? I think customer reviews about this store would help confirm the fact that this company really provides outstanding services and sell high-quality products at low prices.

If I will not check what people say about this store, I may come across a scam site and lose my money or buy poor-quality products.

Unfortunately, I have not found any customer reviews on the website of Canada Med Shop. The website does not even have a feedback form which would allow customers to leave comments and reviews. Whatever the reason is I must say that the popularity and reputation of this company remain undefined. I give 1 star for this unit.

Canada Med Shop Reviews on Third-Party Websites

Like with on-site reviews, I have not found any testimonials on the independent websites as well. This shows that Canada Med Shop has a low popularity.

Lack of reviews makes it difficult to determine how good their drugs, customer service, drug quality and shipping terms are. I recommend you to call the customer support service before purchasing any drugs online. 1 stars for this unit as well. Coupon Codes

Promo codes, sales, and discounts are what attract customers. Online sellers use such offers in order to attract new clients and make the previous ones return for more items. Regretfully, there is no current coupon code for They are not offering any special prices or discount at the moment because they claim that the pharmacy is providing drugs at the lowest possible prices. As I found out in the unit 1.2, this statement is far from being true.

Customer Support Service

Contact Information

Canadian Med Shop provided a comprehensive contact information on its official website. Look what I found on the Contact Us page:

Mailing Address:
Suite #223 7360-137 Street
Surrey, BC,
Canada V3W 1A3

Phone Number:
Toll-Free Phone: 1-877-612-9112

Fax Number:
Toll-Free Fax: 1-855-612-9112


I think these details are very important for a customer. However, I am still skeptical about the real location of this pharmacy. The store claims to be located in Canada but ScamAdviser detected it was the USA. I give 4 stars for this unit.

Trying to Get a Consultation

Canadian Med Shop assures that their customer support is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Regretfully, there is no Live Chat on the site. Customers can call toll-free 1-877-612-9112 and ask any questions they may have. They can also fill out the contact form provided on the website. The pharmacy promises to respond within 24 hours.

I tried to contact the customer service via the contact form. I wanted to figure out which OTC drugs can be purchased in this online store but they did not answer my question by the time my review was up.

Conclusion failed to offer the lowest prices on prescription drugs and its shipment is only limited to the USA. After a thorough research, I found out that this company is legitimate and verified, however, it still violates some internet pharmacy verification standards. What confused me is that I was not able to find a single review posted by previous customers of this pharmacy, which testifies that Canadian Med Shop is unpopular, and this supposition was confirmed by Scam Advisor. I was also skeptical about the location of the company. They stated that they are located in Canada but its real location seems to be in the USA. Due to all these confusing aspects, I cannot recommend to other customers since and give it a rating of 2.4 stars out of 5.
