The General Pharmaceutical Council defines an e-pharmacy or internet pharmacy as a registered pharmacy, which supplies medicines and other healthcare & personal care products and/or provides other professional services over the internet, or makes arrangements for the supply of such products or provision of such services over the internet.
Increasing customer preference towards e-pharmacy is attributed to ease and convenience in ordering and accessing websites. Customers can also access a wide range of products at competitive prices at single click of a button, which further increases consumer preference toward e-pharmacy stores. For instance, in 2016, according to a survey conducted by Consumer Online Foundation and Bureau of Research on Industry and Economic Fundamentals (BRIEF), 61% people prefer to buy medicines online in India.
Furthermore, as online pharmacies do not have a physical pharmacy, they are able to keep the costs low and can offer products at attractive prices. Therefore, lower prices, discounts, and varied package offers and free home delivery services with preferred time and address are some of the major advantages offered by e-pharmacy facilities.
