    1. Thanks for online pharmacy information.

      An online pharmacy, internet pharmacy, or mail-order pharmacy is a pharmacy that operates over the Internet and sends orders to customers through mail, shipping companies, or online pharmacy web portal.

      Online pharmacies include:

      - Pharmacy benefits managers - Entities that administrate corporate prescription drug plans.

      - Legitimate Internet pharmacies in the same country as the person ordering.

      - Legitimate Internet pharmacies in a different country than the person ordering. This type of pharmacy is usually licensed by its home country and follows those regulations, not those of the international orders.
