There are many advantages of online pharmacy too. For example a customer can order the desired products anytime at his or her own convenience and that too in complete privacy. In terms of customer service an online pharmacy normally has a "live help line" for customers to get in touch with the company, if they so desire. Some online pharmacies have started "chat with customer" kind of an activity, too. This methods help to strengthen the service quantum of the company.
Online pharmacies normally accept a wide range of credit cards for the purpose of receiving payments, which are processed by a safe and secure transaction server.
In terms of financial advantage an online pharmacy definitely beats the retail establishments. The drugs that are available at an online pharmacy are normally much cheaper than that are available in a retail pharmaceutical establishment. This is true specifically for Canadian pharmacies. The reason for the same being that there is a governmental control on the price of drugs there unlike in U.S. where any company who has a monopoly on a certain drug can charge prices at their own will. In Canada once the patent for a particular drug expires then ten other establishments can copy the ingredients to produce the same stuff. Hence competition lowers the prices.
