Comparing Subscription-Based Online Pharmacies | The Battle of ED Meds

Before diving into the world of subscription-based ED meds’ pharmacies, I’d like to make a few things clear. Namely,

Both Sildenafil and Tadalafil are commodity products. 

  • Think of it as sugar, it doesn’t really matter from which vendor you purchase it, as the product itself is always identical. Thus, it makes sense to buy it as cheaply as possible.

Tadalafil and Sildenafil prices are a function of marketing spending.

  • Even though 10mg of Sildenafil or Tadalafil costs the same for all the vendors, they still price their products differently. Why? The short answer is that they can, as the buyers aren’t aware of the pricing of Sildenafil and Tadalafil in detail.

Don’t pay a premium for the same product.

  • These vendors spend a lot of money on marketing, so once you visit their websites, you are constantly being presented with all the bells and whistles they have to offer. However, you should disregard all this and focus on customer service quality, refund policy, dosages, and pricing. That’s it!

Conclusion

I’ve tried out ED meds from all 4 online pharmacies discussed above. For me, the experience has always been pleasant and I don’t have anything negative to say about any of them.

This leads me back to the point I was trying to make in the introduction of this blog post – Sildenafil & Tadalafil are commodity products (like sugar), which means that you should compare these online pharmacies based on ED meds’ dosage size and pricing.

In this respect, Bluechew stands out as a clear winner. The company also offers a great customer service experience. Most importantly, you can try out Bluehew worry-free as it’s the only online pharmacy that offers a FREE trial.

If you are looking to get ED meds online, BlueChew is the way to go, no doubt about it.
