The purchase of steroids using a credit card – can it be done safely?
Is it possible to purchase steroids safely using your credit or debit card online? In today’s article we delve into this question and have collated research, information and our expert-opinion to provide a comprehensive answer to this question.
The use of credit and debit cards has now overtaken cash as the most used payment format. This isn’t surprising due to the ever increasing amount of online shopping that takes places, in addition to the convenience and ease that they provide. So where do steroids come into all of this? Over the last five years the number of websites selling steroids has gone through the roof. Gone are the days of paying cash to your local steroid dealer behind the gym; people want steroids and they want them quickly.
Sourcing steroids on the internet – How is it done?
The purchase of steroids on the internet has always been fairly straightforward, but never as simple and easy as a regular online purchase. Why? Because steroid sites only ever allowed payment via bank/wire transfer or via Western Union and/or Moneygram – and this was in the days before you could use a card to make payments via the latter two options. To make a payment via wire transfer entails either logging in online or going into a branch of the suppliers bank, and using money transfer services always required the buyer to find a local vendor of WU or MoneyGram. As you can see, it required a lot of effort compared to punching a few numbers in as you would do with a card payment.
Many people were put off sourcing anabolics from the internet for the above reasons – it was simply too much effort compared to a regular online purchase. This, as you would expect, led to steroid sites trying to go down the route of accepting card payments. I’m sure the vigilant and ‘switched on’ amongst those reading this article will wonder how on earth a website selling grey/black (illegal) products can possibly get a payment processor to accept them. It is simple. They simply setup a fake site selling legit goods. They then tell their customers (on the steroid website) to go to a specific url on the fake site and make their purchase there. This is the only way around. Sure, it’s against the rules – but it works. It may not always last for a long time, but the site can always switch processors.

Finding websites that take payment by card
This used to be difficult. Very difficult. As little as five years ago it was impossible. But, thanks to the reasons listed above it is now far easier. That being said, the majority of steroid suppliers will not want to take the risks associated with applying to a payment processor (because it cannot be done anonymously). Therefore, you will need to look far and wide to find the right site.
The best way to go about this is what you would think is the wrong way around, but actually isn’t (in our expert opinion). Many people will try to find sites that take card and then proceed to research them – reviews, feedback etc…, however we feel it is better to do it the other way around. Use steroid review sites such as MuscleGurus and eRoids to find the best suppliers in your country and then view the payment information on their respective websites to see if card payments are allowed. This may seem illogical, but it isn’t. Trust us. If you can’t find any payment information then email them to find out. Sites may take card payments but not advertise it. From our research we found that numerous sites do this, and sometimes will only allow returning customers to pay by card. Visa and Mastercard are the two most common types, however some suppliers may take Amex and Delta also.
Our top tips
- Only use domestic sources. Do not try to import steroids through customs. This can have numerous negative consequences. Using domestic sources is far, far less risky.
- Make a test purchase. If you’re using a site for the first time make a small purchase first. If this goes to plan then you can proceed with a bigger order.
- Only use secure and safe payment methods. Use payments methods that afford you maximum protection. These are credit and debits cards, Bitcoin and Paypal also. Wire transfer is fine for trusted sources.
