If I ran a Geeklist auction, and I wanted to make sure BGG gets the cut of any RPG items on the list, how do I set up the item so it can go through the system? Right now, "Sell a Game" under the Marketplace only looks for Board Games, not RPG items, even though the RPG items have their own listings.

Any help is appreciated.

One workaround is to list it under a "generic" entry on BGG (like Misc Game Book)

If you are selling a lot of items then the easiest thing to do, rather than making individual items for each, is to make a single Marketplace listing under Misc Game Accessories for the grand total of all the paid winning bids. Send me the link to that listing and I'll "buy" it. We can click through the rest of the sale process.

You might also figure out what the 3% equals and then use the Support BGG link at the bottom of every page and use Other Amount to select what you owe. Would that work? It might be easier than setting up a market place listing instead of contacting Octavian (whom I'm sure has plenty on his plate daily and you'd get a few GG back).

We actually prefer that it be done through the Marketplace. One reason is that commissions and site support is handled differently for accounting purposes. And I certainly don't mind doing my small part in helping facilitate it.
