Reply to the comment
of the item you want to bid on. Please make sure you do not choose "leave a comment" but rather "reply to comment" when bidding.What currency is being used?
All donations should be made in US dollars, as that is where enkiduts
is located.How to I donate?
Please use paypal with this address: firstname.lastname@example.org Do I need to mention anything in the paypal message?
You do NOT have to add anything in the paypal message, however PLEASE be sure to FORWARD the receipt you receive from paypal to the person offering the auction that you won.Can I bid anonymously?
No. As there would be no way to verify your bid and/or track you down if there is a problem, you cannot bid anonymously.Can I donate without bidding?
Yes, absolutely! If you just wish to offer a donation to help enkiduts
out, you're more than welcome to.If I have more than one thing to offer should I add them individually or in one comment?
If you are offering several of the same thing - for example, offering a 500 word fanfic to the top three bidders - then please just make one comment. If you are offering different things - for example, a 500 word fanfic, a 1000 word fanfic and a poem, please make separate comments for each.How do I tell who won my offer?
Unless you are offering a "buy it now" option, then the person who has commented bidding the highest amount is the winner.Do I retain copyright to my work?
Yes, absolutely. No one is buying anything - you are simply offering a "gift" to the winning bidder. Please be sure to either include in your offer, or discuss with the winner, whether the offered item will be made public after a set period of time (for example - offering a 1000 word fic with the winner "owning" it for 3 months after which you will post it publicly).If I am shipping something, is there anything I need to know?
Yes, you should absolutely check out the regulations for whatever coutry you are sending to/from. Certain items may not be permitted to be mailed to certain countries and could be seized by customs.If I win an auction, how do I go about paying for it?
All monies are to be sent to enkiduts
via her paypal account: email@example.com
. You will receive a receipt from paypal for this donation and should send a copy of it to the person whose auction you won as proof of payment.Can I combine winning bids into one donation?
That will be up to you and those whose items you bid on. I don't see a problem with it, however make sure you've spoken to the offerers of the auctions you've won to make sure they are okay with it.
