How Does an Online Pharmacy Work?
An electronic pharmacy works the same way as traditional retail pharmacies, with one key difference: orders are placed and completed online. The consumer shops for and orders their prescription or non-prescription drugs from a website and pays for them using an accepted form of payment.
Once the order has been processed, the pharmacy team—which includes a licensed pharmacist responsible for proper medication dispensing and preparation—packages and dispatches the drug(s), either through mail or courier services. Customers don't have to call in a prescription, drive or walk to a drug store, or wait in line (or be surrounded by sick people waiting in line). Pharmacy eCommerce must follow all of the government and consumer demands of retail pharmacies.
