Internet pharmacy or epharmacy is an online platform, which acts as an intermediate between the seller and consumer for the sale of medicines. ePharmacies are gaining popularity across the globe owing to the many benefits they offer, including easy access to complete information on prescribed drugs, low or discounted drug prices, and round-the-clock delivery of drugs. It is not necessary for the patients to be physically present at a store to buy required medicines, making ePharmacies a convenient option. The ePharmacies market is expected to grow rapidly due to the development of government regulations and ethical practices.
