We appreciate the opportunity to answer your questions about our business. We hope you enjoy shopping at OTC Wholesale and find a convenient and money saving way to buy the things you need. Following are list of our most frequently asked questions:

We hope these answers are helpful and you may wish to visit our About Us page for more information on our company and business. Thank you for visiting OTCWholesale.

Why are your prices so low?

We are a distributor in South Florida that only deals in name brand over-the-counter drugstore products. With our purchasing power we are able to offer great prices on the products we stock. If we cannot get a product for the right price we will not stock it. This is why our inventory is constantly changing. Many of the products on our web site may have slight cosmetic flaws to the outer packaging of the boxes (i.e. a nick, a scratch, and or a small dent in the outer packaging). These flaws are in the packaging only and have no effect on the product within. From time to time, we will offer products with short expiration dates at extremely low prices. In these cases the products will be clearly marked with a expiration date in the products title. Based on these conditions, we are able to purchase items at deeper discounts and subsequently offer these savings to our on-line customers.

Larger packages may be shipped via US Post Office, FedEx and UPS. Allow a little more time for weekends and holidays.

Why have you cancelled my order?

OTC Wholesale will always contact you with a reason before cancelling any order via email. Accurate billing information, recipient/ address conflicts, and running out of stock are cancellation reasons.

Back to Top

Why do you request an email address when I place an order?

An email address does help with communication with an order. We sent confirmation and tracking emails standard for every order. We also would contact your via email if ether is a problem with an order. This email address or your private information will never be sold.

Back to Top

Why do you request a phone number with every order?

We are not planning to use your phone number unless it is truly needed. Sometimes your delivery person gets lost and needs directions for accurate delivery. Fed EX and UPS require this information for this reason. We have also noticed an increase in typos with more use of hand held devices such as cell phones and tablets. We want to make sure your package gets where you want it to go.

Back to Top

Why are you stating that I am not at my address?

OTC Wholesale uses several methods to verify that accurate information is being used for each order. We take fraud seriously and do our part to help combat fraudulent use of identities. These programs help us to verify the name that is listed at the address. If you are on vacation, the delivery company may not be authorized to deliver to the address in your name. We will sometimes require that delivery is to the billing address of the card used if the name is not listed at the address. If you are shipping to an alternate address, using PayPal as a payment method will alleviate this problem. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Back to Top

What if I am an International customer placing an order shipping to a US address?

Card processors will not be able to verify your billing address from another country. I would suggest using PayPal as a payment method to your US address. You may also chose to use International Checkout to either your International Address or your US address.

Back to Top

Why cant you accept my International billing address?

Unfortunately the card processor cannot verify a billing address from outside the US. Without this verification we unfortunately cannot ship your order. You may however, use PayPal to a US address listed on the account.

Back to Top

Why do you restrict shipping to a freight forwarder or commercial mail receiving center?

Shipping to a freight forwarder or commercial mail receiving center is not a problem when billing and shipping match. Unfortunately we may restrict orders to the billing address when it involves these locations due to fraudulent use. I suggest updating your card processing billing to reflect this address and you should not have this problem. Additionally, using PayPal to your chosen shipping address will alleviate this problem.

Back to Top

How do I know what my billing address is?

If you are uncertain, contact your card processor. The billing address should be the address that your credit card bill goes to. This is not the address on the back of your credit card. If you receive your bill electronically, log onto your account and view what information your credit card company has on file.

Back to Top

Why am I having trouble with my prepaid card when placing an order?

Unfortunately most prepaid credit cards do not have a billing address associated with the card. Because the billing address cannot be verified many times orders using these cards will be cancelled. Since we verify billing before processing the order and we are unable to verify the billing address with these cards and subsequently the order may be cancelled. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Back to Top

Why do I see two lines that look like charges on my credit card statement online?

OTCWholesale accepts an authorization as the order is received to check that accurate information has been input. Once we accept this information, we then charge the card. This will cause the authorization and charge to be on two separate lines. The authorization does disappear and this system makes it impossible to double charge your card. If you are concerned please contact us so that we may check your order.
