So recently I tried this App - suggested by some relative who himself is medical representative

PharmEasy- Happy Health! - Android Apps on Google Play
PharmEasy: Buy Medicines & Schedule Diagnostic Tests Online

First I was skeptical. But then I said - ok lets try once for small amount.

And it worked. App said 1 day delay but I got delivery on same day of the order.
  1. You have to upload your doctors Rx photo and place order
  2. Photo must have doctors / patients name and date of Rx (otherwise they reject order)
  3. Their retailer calls to confirm the medicines and quantity
  4. Their person comes and collects Rx (original) - and gives u receipt of collection
  5. He comes back 2nd time with medicines and also gives original Rx back
  6. Bill is under name of a retailer and bill shows FULL value
  7. But payment that I made is 20% less than what is mentioned in bill.
Cons:
  1. You can not select medicines u want within App (but they ask u on phone abt which meds u want and how much quantity)
  2. You have to give original of Rx - I dont know why they need original
  3. They stamp the original Rx (without my permission)
  4. Person comes twice to ur home, which is waste of time / man power on their side. So u have to be present at home both times
  5. Bill is under retailers name and not PharmEasy
Pros:
  1. They send SMS as well as Email at different stages (similar to e-commerce companies) like order confirmed with name of person who will come to collect Rx, medicines dispatched, medicines delivered
  2. App is easy to use
  3. Person seemed well trained - He put documents well placed in a folder with order number.

I am not sure how they can afford this.
20% discount
Trained person who comes twice
SMS / Email costs etc

Medicine have huge margins. This is why chemists do not like the idea of online competition. They went on strike for a day or three around here few months ago.

I am using their service since December 2015 and they really give flat 20% off .. Its really remarkable that chemist refuse to give more than 5% .. The margins are really huge ...

My local chemist was giving me 5% and home delivery. And I was happy about it.

And now I know about PharmEasy - I am like I lost so much money!!

My house consumes 2000Rs worth medicine per month!! :D

Could have saved 300Rs extra every month.

So the question is. Would you trust medicine purchased from an unknown store delivered by another unknown entity. I stick to one of the ten medicine shops in my local market because of trust factor even though the uncle at that shop gives me negligible discount.
