Process for Bidding
Anyone can bid on a G4GG item by tipping the individual geeklist item. The item lister will specify whether it is a simple 1gg=1 entry for any amount of tips, or whether 5gg=6 entries, a popular variation. Bidders should pay attention to shipping restrictions and the exact item being offered to ensure there are no problems at drawing.

There is no limit to the number of items that anyone can bid on except their own supply of Geekgold.
