A word about the way Auctions are promoted.

We promote all auctions through direct mail, print advertising and by emailing announcements of all new postings to our extensive base of registered users. We have one of the largest databases of buyers and sellers of used hospital equipment anywhere on the Internet. We also help you through DOTmed Alerts. Alerts are personal requests by DOTmed users to be notified when the specific equipment they want is posted. So we tell the exact people who want to buy what you're selling.

A word about our Approved Bidder policy.

DOTmed only wants serious Bidders to participate in your auction - as should you. That is why we have an Approved Bidder policy.
In brief, we require Bidders not known to DOTmed to either become DOTmed Certified or submit their credit card information before they can bid.
This is a powerful incentive that helps ensure payment, which is what you deserve, as do we.
