TOP INDIAN E-PHARMACIES FOR ONLINE MEDICINE BUYING AND DELIVERY
Online shopping for medicines is the latest phenomenon in Indian ecommerce. Ecommerce is gradually revolutionizing the healthcare industry of India to transform the way we buy medicines, herbal products and fitness devices for the better. Existing pharmacists or pharmaceutical companies are going online with their merchandise for sale and offline delivery, while startups with innovative business models are entering the online pharmacy marketplace in India. I chose to introduce the following Indian online pharmacies which you can give a try to meet your medicinal requirements.
mCHEMIST is an Indian startup in the online medicine buying space. Founded in 2014, this online pharmacy is an e-platform to shop for prescribed medicines and healthcare devices. Users or buyers need to open accounts on mCHEMIST.com and upload their prescriptions to the accounts. Following a few steps, they get medicines delivered at their doorsteps. mCHEMIST also deals in daily wellness aids and herbal supplements. It promises to meet long-term requirements for health and wellness.

I am not sure whether there is a single online pharmacy in India that is dependable. Most of them are incompetent and ill equipped to provide dependable services. They will happily accept your order ( if you have a valid prescription) but then part by part they will cancel the order citing non-availability ( they will at the time of ordering, will hide this). And it is often 10 or more days, by the time a small part of the order is delivered. Better would be to strike a deal with your neighborhood chemist, who can give you discounts of upto 15% and make sure that they order from stockists, if they are not carrying stock of the medicine you need. We need to wait for professional Companies like Amazon to come into the market, before we trust online pharmacies. This is based on my experience with Netmeds, 1 mg, Aermed , PharmEasy and Medplus Mart
