How To Buy Modafinil From ModafinilCat (Complete Review)
This is my review of ModafinilCat, an online source of generic modafinil and armodafinil tablets. Here, I’ll discuss the purpose of their site as well as take an in-depth look into how their order process works.
Important Update: both DuckDose and AfinilExpress closed their shops. Please see ModafinilXL instead (my review here).
Special Update: As of September 2016, ModaifnilCat is no longer in business. It was a sad moment for the nootropics community, as MC has been an excellent source of Modafinil for years. In their closing email, the MC team recommended two other great Modafinil vendors: 1) Duckdose, a newer site with excellent customer service (my review here), and 2) AfinilExpress.com, an even-newer supplier (my review here). Thanks for the good times, ModafinilCat. =^..^=

Complete Review of ModafinilCat: a Leading Online Modafinil Supplier
Not many details are known about ModafinilCat nor the team behind the “Fast & Fluffy Modafinil Online Pharmacy”, as it calls itself. This is to be expected, given the nature of what they need to do: using clandestine operations – often circumventing national law – to bring Modafinil to people around the world.
However, we found that they jokingly claimed to have a base on Cat Island in the Bahamas. In reality, we can only confirm that they operate in India and China, where modafinil tablets are sourced and bill processing happens, respectively.
With all this cloak and dagger, many people wonder: Is it okay to buy from ModafinilCat? Is it legal? Is it safe?
Bringing Modafinil to the Masses
With the overwhelming amount of interest in the productivity-enhancing drug modafinil, there are a great number of people who ask the same question – “where do I even get it”?
Since modafinil and its analog – armodafinil – nowhere for sale on any general nootropics and supplement websites, many of us have scratched our heads over how anyone sources the stuff. One way is to explore risky options, such as ordering from unverified sellers in the dark corners of the web.
On the other hand, there is a seller that has been well-known and trusted by numerous members of the nootropics community. Enter one of your future best friends – ModafinilCat.
Before we go into the details of ModafinilCat and its website, we need to think about why the sale of Modafinil is such a big deal.
Modafinil is a drug that has garnered a great deal of attention over the past few years. Students, professionals, and curious individuals have all learned to regard it as one of the most reliable substances to take for productivity enhancement and fighting off fatigue due to lack of sleep.
To put it simply, modafinil can provide a person with a distinct edge in a number of activities they participate in. This chemically-induced advantage is not easily found in other substances, and frankly, is considered a miracle by some.
With the power of modafinil comes great restriction, however. For various legal and logistical reasons, it cannot be found on any of your typical supplement or nootropics-selling websites (like Amazon, GNC, PeakNootropics, or Absorb Your Health).
Instead, we have to rely on companies that specialize in getting modafinil around these barriers and to their customers around the world. ModafinilCat is particularly established as one of these special entities, and that is why we have chosen to cover it here at Corpina.
ModafinilCat is a vendor of generic modafinil and armodafinil tablets, meaning that the tablets they sell contain the same active ingredients as more expensive brands such as Provigil and Nuvigil.
Customers have the choice of buying tablets manufactured by either Sun Pharmaceuticals or HAB Pharmaceuticals, both of which operate in India.
Both companies produce 200mg doses of modafinil and 150mg doses of armodafinil. The tablets themselves are essentially the same thing, except fillers may be different.
If you’re questioning which company to go with, you might go with Sun Pharmaceuticals just because they have been in the modafinil market for longer than HAB, and are recognized for their good quality.
In addition, ModafinilCat provides a handy chart for those questioning which generic tablet to purchase:
From this chart, it would appear that the Sun Pharma products are both slightly stronger and slightly more expensive per pill than the equivalent HAB Pharma products.
It is also worth mentioning that in terms of the substances themselves, armodafinil is more potent and tends to last longer in the body than regular modafinil. Expect that dose per dose, armodafinil is about 1.5 times more potent in effects.
In addition to selecting the drug (moda or R-moda) and brand (HAB or Sun) of tablets you want, you have the option to choose how many you want to buy at once. Modafinil sells each of their 4 types of tablets in the same purchase quantities: 40, 80, 100, 200, and 300. Expect to save a few dozen cents per pill for each quantity choice you go upwards.
For example, when you buy 40 pills of Sun Pharma modafinil (Modalert), you pay 2 USD per pill, whereas you would pay 1.79 USD per pill if you bought a quantity of 80. [Prices updated: 1/31/2016]
On their site’s about page, ModafinilCat lightheartedly claims that they assist their customers achieve their goals with the consumption of their tablets.
“We don’t sell Modafinil – we sell a spaceship that brings you closer to your dreams, you just have to put it together by yourself.”
Steps in the Ordering Process
So, if at this point you’re convinced about purchasing from ModafinilCat, you may be wondering how the actual process of ordering works. After all, shouldn’t there be some long and convoluted method to get such an elusive product?
It turns out that it’s not bad all to make an order. It’s quite simple actually; there are just a few things to keep in mind.
Choosing Your Products
Beginning an order is as simple as cake. On the main page of ModafinilCat.com, you are presented with a four-color bar with boxes representing all of the options of tablets to purchase. After clicking a box, you then choose the quantity of pills you want in a section just below.
You can use this handy brand/quantity selector on the main page, or head to the top of the page and browse the individual pages for the various brands. After you decided on your brands and quantities, you are all set for the next step – checkout.
Once you move forward to the checkout page, you are greeted with a neat, confidence-inspiring checkout form. It looks extremely professionally done, like something you’d expect to see from a company like Google. I’m not even exaggerating here, take a look:
As you can see, ModafinilCat will accept payment from either a credit card (Visa and Mastercard) or bitcoin, with the latter being the ideal choice for anonymity and security.
For credit card transactions, a Chinese payment processor is used, so it may trip up the fraud prevention mechanisms for your bank. This has also been an issue over at the much better-known Ceretropic.com, but do not be alarmed – it is completely normal.
Once you’ve placed an order and cleared the transaction with your bank (it may appear as something weird like a stereo store at first), you will be good to go. Keep in mind this may not happen with all banks, but it is not unheard of. It happened to me personally, and I use a medium-sized bank in central New England.
Besides payment information, you will need to provide your name, a shipping address, and an email address. As the order commences, you will receive convenient updates via email.
This includes order confirmation, shipping confirmation, and an update whenever your package is tracked to a new location in the world. You will also get a tracking number for your shipment – for United States Postal Service (USPS) in my case.
After your order with ModafinilCat is placed, you should expect a delivery to your address between 3 and 35 days, depending on what country you live in. See the chart copied from their site below, to get an idea of how long your shipment will take.
The time it takes in reality depends on your distance from Mumbai, India (the departure point for Sun and HAB Pharma) as well as customs procedures in your country.
It is also sadly worth noting that many countries cannot be shipped to from ModafinilCat due to customs restrictions. Make sure your country is not on the following list before continuing:
Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates.
HOWEVER, not all hope is lost if you live in one of the above countries.
ModafinilCat recommends the use of Skypax.com or a similar “mail forwarding company” to help bypass restrictions.
Issues with shipping
Naturally, many people are worried about what happens if say, your package from ModafinilCat gets lost or held by customs. According to the ModafinilCat website, there is a 4% probability that such a thing will happen.
This is due to the legal complications and international shipping involved with modafinil products, which we hope to cover in a future article. If you are unlucky enough for a complication to occur, ModafinilCat will either try to re-ship your order or give you a refund. By default, they will re-ship the order, unless you ask them for a refund within two days of their notification of complications.
This buyer’s assurance is probably why many modafinil buyers turned to MC in the wake of MyModafinil’s closing. ModafinilCat’s guarantee that “you get what you paid for” certainly gives their prospective customers a feeling of comfort when ordering with them.
When I received my package from ModafinilCat (approximately 9 days after ordering, well on time), the contents were in a plain white parcel with some Hindi script on the outside, along with your shipping label.
The tablets arrived in perfect condition within the Sun Pharma foil packs I had ordered, with some bubble wrap around them to prevent crushing during shipping.
At this point, just pop a white tablet out of a foil pack, and get cracking on whatever it is you need to do. We hope this means advancing yourself or society to a whole new level!
ModafinilCat Coupons and Discounts
ModafinilCat does offer some discounts to their customers. Firstly, you get 10% off your next order with ModafinilCat once you have placed your first order. (This is admittedly their way of keeping customer loyalty, and it’s fairly generous.)
Secondly, you get 20% off your order when you use bitcoins as your payment method. This is supposedly due to the cost associated with using a credit card processor, and their way of promoting the use of secure cryptocurrency.
If you happen to work with bitcoin or prefer to cover your cybertracks a bit, the more power to you if you order from ModafinilCat.
If you are a professional or enthusiast that has always been curious about trying modafinil, you do have a great chance give it a try. ModafinilCat provides an easy, uncomplicated method of ordering generic Modafinil despite the haziness surrounding the subject.
We hope you find great success in your shopping as well as experimentation!
