The last time you went to purchase your medicines, at the pharmacy, did you feel that they made you wait for too long? Or they charged you more than the maximum retail price and you felt cheated?
Don’t worry, you are not alone. This is what most consumers feel these days. Medicine providers are trying to find a permanent solution to this by selling online. Now, among the many things you can purchase online, you can now add medicines to that tally.
While for certain medicines you need to upload a prescription online, there are still a few that you can order without prescriptions. Whatever it is, a lot of your problems have come to an end. I am a big-time propagator of buying medicines online. Here’s why.
- Avoid judgmental looks
Most people are hesitant to buy medicines and prefer confidentiality. Not that there is anything to hide but sometimes, going to a local pharmacy can be tough with fellow customers and pharmacists glaring at you.
This problem aggravates when women need their sanitary napkins or any other genital products. Ofcourse, this is no solution to the problem of the judgmental society but you at least don’t have to bear the brunt of it.
- Not missing out on medicines
There are many ways in which we can miss out on medicines. Sometimes the store might not have enough stock of your regular medicines or sometimes you can be forgetful about ordering the medicine.
A patient’s medication, especially prescribed ones are not something you can afford to be forgetful with, so, by choosing to order online, you reduce that chance by multiple times. Online portals save your data and also allow you to set reminders and alerts to make orders. And in case one website is stock-out for a specific medicine, you can always explore more like MedMate.
- Economically rewarding
Ordering medicines online can be financially rewarding in quite a few ways. One, you do not have to go to the store and instead opt for doorstep deliveries, saving you commute costs and time.
Second, ordering online comes with amazing prices, discounts, and offers. One big reason why selling medicines shifted to online platforms was that most people find purchasing medicines offline expensive, despite purchasing at MRPs.
- Doorstep Deliveries
This is probably one of the star reasons why e-commerce companies are so successful in the present scenario: hassle-free doorstep deliveries. Most online medicine sellers provide doorstep delivery either at no additional cost or for a very nominal fee.
Not always you will get the medicines you want in your local pharmacy. Sometimes you have to work hard, take a vehicle, and go to a big store and then buy. And ofcourse the struggle of standing in long queues goes without saying. Ordering online makes the job a lot easier as you get all your prescribed medicines at a few clicks!
- Everything is Authentic
No matter how easy and economically rewarding it is, you won’t go ahead with it if it is not authentic, especially when it concerns your health. This makes authenticity the most important aspect for online pharmacies.
When it comes to online pharmacies, you can be assured that they will provide you with no counterfeit products. This is because all of these online medicine platforms are partially regulated by the government.
The government has always been strict about drugs and their use and these strict regulations ensure that there are no counterfeit products. Now, since online providers also understand the importance of authenticity, they ask you for prescriptions before confirming your order.
Over to you….
If you have read so far, you would have understood why a whopping 61% of people prefer to order medicine online these days. This number is sure to increase in the near future. If you are still relying on local pharmacies, it’s high time you must make the shift. Apart from all the benefits mentioned above, online pharmacies is the future!
