I was once out for shopping and got a shirt for a certain amount, the design and the colour really made me pay the amount for it. When I got home and showed my younger brother the shirt and told him the amount I got it for, my brother insisted that I could have paid less for the shirt. It dawned on me that I paid higher than I was meant to pay for the shirt: my higher payment meant higher profit for the seller. That particular incident made me begin exploring ways to negotiate better when next I go shopping. Below are two major ways, which I have tried and it worked, you can get better deals on things you will get from the stores next time: i) Ask about Discounts: It is important to always ask the seller about discount packages when you go shopping. If you are a buyer that purchases in bulk, then always inquire about bulk discounts attached to buying the intended products. Even if there is none, you can use your bargaining power to get the prices of such products reduced since you are buying in bulk. However, be careful not to push the seller to a corner where you may likely miss out on other benefits attached to purchasing a particular product. Let it always be a happy end between the seller and you. ii)Relationship Psychology: You see this works like magic especially when you are buying from a store that does not have stock prices for the products. Like a friend can be coerced to sell a product lower than a certain price to you as a result of the friendship that exists between you two, that is the same way you can use this to your advantage when you visit new stores or one you can negotiate and get a better deal. The way it works is to engage the seller in a discussion in a smiling way on any interesting topic or even how the business is going. This way, you can instantly, if done right, become a friend to this particular seller that when it is time to bargain, it won't be as tough as meeting for the first time. I have been using these two and it works perfectly. Anyway, what other ways, do you think to get better deals can be done?
