How Shipping Medicine to the USA Works

Finding a high-quality, reliable online pharmacy you can turn to for accessing affordable prescription medications is a great step forward in simplifying your healthcare needs and your budget. However, taking into consideration shipping will ultimately define your experience when working with any pharmacy and making sure you have your medication when you need it. Are you interested in purchasing prescription medications online but need more information before you make your first purchase? If so, here’s a guide on how we handle shipping medicine to our USA customers safely and efficiently at Inhouse

Shipping Confirmation and Speed for US Customers

Although shipping prescription medication internationally sounds like it would be an extensive process, most customers are surprised to learn that they will receive an order confirmation within 24 hours and that shipping will typically take place the same day the order is processed. 

While Inhouse Pharmacy does offer premium shipping methods for those importing prescription drugs for personal use in other countries, this offer is not extended to customers in the US. However, shipping medicine to USA customers is still quick, with both free standard airmail postage and free registered airmail postage reaching customers in an average of two to six weeks. 

Due to COVID-19, the postal system encountered some major issues that significantly impacted the speed of shipping packages. However, we have noticed that speeds have begun to approach normal levels now that COVID has settled slightly. More airlines are flying now and the international postal service is beginning to pick up in terms of speed despite being shut down. This means that our US customers won’t face as significant of delays that they were experiencing previously. 

Shipping Medicine to USA Customers and US Customs

Being non-restricted pharmaceuticals, prescription medications from Inhouse Pharmacy will be processed by US Customs. This will inevitably delay the arrival of your medication, for which everyone should take into consideration when ordering medications so that they’re able to get them on time, accounting for their refill date. 

Depending on the speed of processing or other issues US Customs may encounter, delays may take anywhere from three days to three weeks at the latest before they reach out to you. 

The good news in regards to shipping medicine to USA customers is that US Customs does not currently charge customs duty or sales tax on your product, which saves you money in the long run. However, it’s important to know that US Customs will reject orders larger than three months’ worth of medication. In order to experience minimal issues with your order once it reaches US Customs, make sure you’re buying no more than a three-month supply of your medication at a time. 

When Your Medication Arrives: What to Expect

When your medication has been processed by US Customs, there are some important items to be aware of as the medication makes its way to your doorstep. 

  • Delivery times will depend entirely on the postal or courier service delivering your medication. The timeframe offered above will give you an idea of how long you may have to wait, but there’s no set delivery time when it comes to shipping medicine to USA customers. It’s best to order your next package based on maximum delivery times so that you receive your package when you need it. 
  • Importing prescription drugs for personal use is often treated as a private matter by those on the receiving end. All packages from Inhouse Pharmacy are packaged discreetly so that no one handling the package or viewing the package will be able to tell what is inside. 
  • Because of the nature of these goods, those who are shipping prescription medication internationally to themselves will need to sign for the package upon delivery. Should no signature be obtained, the courier will often hold the package for a limited amount of time to allow you to sign for it and pick it up when it suits you. You can also ship your package to your residence, your workplace, or wherever else there will be someone to sign for it. When shipping medicine to USA customers, we can also ship your order to PO Boxes and APO addresses. 
  • We guarantee that the medications are as represented as they are on our website and come from the manufacturers stated. We also guarantee they will arrive in good condition with the manufacturer’s seals intact and with sufficient time to expire so that you have high-quality medication to take when it arrives at your doorstep. If we fail to meet these conditions, we will decide to either replace or refund the goods.
