Is the amount of my automated bid taken into account at the physical auction?
The automated bid is valid throughout the auction. The physical auction starts based on the last amount of bid offered electronically. The amount of automated bid is not taken into account if the e-bid fails to reach the maximum limit of the defined automated bid. (Example: The opening amount of an asset is 10.000,00 TL; A initially offers 11.000,00 TL, then defines 500,00-TL increments up to 15.000,00 TL. When B offers 12.000,00 TL for the same auction, the bid of A will be raised to 12.500,00 TL in accordance with the automated bid instruction defined by A. If no one else has offered an electronic bid, the physical auction opens at 12.500, TL which is the highest bid online. If C offers 14.000,00 TL at the physical auction, then C will be awarded. Pursuant to the law, the automated bid of 15.000,00 TL A defined electronically is not taken into account.
