Payment for medicines can be carried out in two ways: online and offline.

The application will not insist on paying online, because each user should have the right to choose.
Another huge plus is that the data left in the online pharmacy application is completely safe. The pharmacy app should have a high protection level and antivirus programs to prevent the leakage of personal information.
