What sales tax am I responsible for?
Med32 users are responsible for sales tax when ordering from a vendor
located in the same state. To determine your tax liability, consult the
vendor's page through the vendor list.
Shipping costs, methods and delivery times vary according to the vendor. You may reference the individual vendor's page through the vendor list.
How do I know the vendor received my order?
As soon as you click on the "order" button Med32 sends you an automatic
e-mail confirming that your order has been received in the Med32 Order Management System.
The Order Management System immediately sends an e-mail confirmation of your
order to each vendor included in your shopping cart.
When items are shipped, the vendor accesses the Order Management System , which generates another e-mail to inform you of the shipment. Customer Care staff also monitor your order status. For example, if they learn that an item is back-ordered, a Customer Care representative will contact you with this information to provide the details, as well as try to find an alternative vendor or product if you so choose.
Also, remember that you can check the status of recent orders on the home page in the "Quick Status" box.
