In the past, pharmacies operates exclusively out of brick-and-mortar locations. After receiving a prescription from a doctor, a consumer would have to drive to a nearby pharmacy to purchase the medication.
While brick-and-mortar pharmacies such as these are still around, ePharmacies offer a convenient alternative.
Thanks to ePharmacies, consumers can now order their prescription medications from the comfort of their home. Assuming a consumer has access to the internet, he or she can visit an ePharmacy's website to order their prescription medication.
ePharmacies still require prescriptions from a licensed doctor. The only difference is that they allow consumers to purchase their prescription medications over the internet.
To order prescription medication from an ePharmacy, a consumer must visit the ePharmacy's website and provide his or her prescription. Upon receiving the prescription, the ePharmacy will prepare the consumer's prescription medication, after which they will mail or ship it to the consumer.
Not only are ePharmacies convenient to use; they can also save consumers a substantial amount of money on their prescription medications. Because of the competitive nature of the internet, ePharmacies tend to offer lower prices on prescription medications than brick-and-mortar pharmacies.
As a result, some consumers save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by purchasing their prescription medications from an ePharmacy.
