Users can view For Sale or Wanted Advertisements by clicking on
Medical EquipNet and then click on iBuy or iSell subcategory in the upper navigation bar. Alternatively click on iBuy or iSell icon on the left side of the homepage. Next click on Browse
For Sale or Wanted Advertisements, click on a Medical Specialty
such as Radiology, and next click on an Equipment Class such
as CT Scanners or click on View All at the top of the page to
view all For Sale Advertisements for a particular medical specialty.
Subject line listings for the equipment postings will appear
and click on the View Details link to read the details for any one particular advertisement. Users will see contact
information for those organizations with a Subscription Membership.
If the organization has a Transaction Membership, users will communicate
anonymously by clicking on Send Message to Seller button to utilize the administrative email messaging software until the transaction
is completed per the Terms and Conditions of Use.
When using the email messaging system with the Transaction Membership this communication
is between the specific Buyer and Seller. Therefore, pricing can be negotiated
on a case by case basis. If a price change is agreed upon for the purchase then
the pricing field for the For Sale Advertisement will need to be adjusted for this one specific buyer. In order the modify the price for this specific Buyer only, the Seller will click on the Edit For Sale AD for this Message Thread link above the comment box for the reply email back to the Buyer. The Buyer will
next click on View Ad for this Message Thread link above the comment box when they open their message from the Seller. Next the Buyer will click on Buy Now
and then click on Complete Order to select payment type and print a receipt.
To purchase an item Buyers click on Add to Cart link in the subject line for the advertisement or alternatively, click on the View Details link and on the next page click on Buy Now button. Either of these methods will hold the item in your shopping cart temporarily. Next verify the quantity is correct. You can change the quantity by clicking on Change Quantities button. The next step is to click Complete Order button to begin to process the order. The final step is to click on the downward arrow under the Payment Type button to select a payment method and finalize the order. This final step must be done for the system to recognize your order. SoluMed.com will then collect the first 10% of the net sales price to cover the Seller's advertising fee and release contact information to both the Buyerand Seller to make final arrangements. The Seller collects the remaining 90% plus any applicable taxes on the total amount.
Another alternative for Buyers who do not see their required equipment listed in the For Sale Advertisements is to click on iBuy and then click on Post Wanted Advertisements in order to inform suppliers of your needs. This is very effective since not all suppliers have listed every inventory item in the For
Sale Advertisements and may have what you are looking to buy.

and equipment class of your interest. Fill in the form and click
