What is the difference between VIPPS accreditation and .pharmacy verification?

When VIPPS launched in 1999, it was the first of its kind to face a new type of threat the world had never seen before – websites selling fake and dangerous medicines. VIPPS accreditation shows that your company takes customer safety seriously, with rigorous reviews of policies and procedures and an on-site survey necessary for accreditation. VIPPS is recognized or required by over 20 state boards of pharmacy. VIPPS is a great choice for your pharmacy and website if you only do business in the US, hold several licenses throughout the country, and are looking to advertise online through major search engines. VIPPS accreditation also satisfies some credit companies’ requirements for the validation of certain pharmacy transactions.
