Avoiding the risk of any fake medications, we ensures that all the health products and medicines are 100% authentic by sourcing from certified and registered pharmacies.”
Safety and health of the consumers being their top priority, the logistics team keeps a track of the expiry date of the products. The team made every possible effort to acknowledge that all the medicines which are to be delivered to the customers must have a minimum of 6-12 months of expiry date. Delivering fresh and best quality medicines is one of the major checkpoints 1Tab maintains to establish the trust of its customers.
Trying to cut the waiting time and long queues for the medicines, we have also integrated fast and secure payment methods including online payments, net banking, cash on delivery, with easy returns and quick refundable process.

With the foresight of being one of the top healthcare platforms in India, 1Tab’s team is stepping up in the ladder by gaining the customer’s trust and creating a safe and interactive medium to build trust and fulfill customer’s healthcare needs.

This is what 1Tab is grappling with so far.
1Tab’s prime concern is building customer’s trust by providing quality medicines, credible services as well as providing discounts while managing the budgets and funds for a smooth standardised service.

Artificial Intelligence and machine learning algorithms will play a key role undoubtedly, connecting healthcare providers to the healthcare seekers.
