It is common for buyers in farmer’s market to ask for discounts to lessen their total costs. Many stores and stalls may but this request but since they are also selling things for a living and needs more income, they refuse to give discounts to their goods. Commonly, sellers persuade customers to buy their products but, do you know that buyers also persuade sellers to lessen their price and there are ways on how you can successfully persuade a seller? Here are the things you need to do to get the discount you want.

Ask for the last price

One of the seller’s techniques is to increase the price that they will say. This is if customers ask for discounts, they can lessen the price but the real price is much lower, therefore, giving them a larger profit. The trick in this will be revealed if you ask for the last price and then tell them that in other stores it is lesser. Once they agree to it, make another deal and then boom, super extra discount.

Be Polite

People are people and it is our nature to be calmed and attracted to those people with good hearts. In asking for discounts, you should be polite to the sellers. A bad attitude will just increase tension between parties and might lead to worst things. It is important that you act gently with etiquette in asking for discounts. Once sellers see you as a good customer and have the potential to be loyal to them, they want to earn your trust by giving you discounts. With these, it won’t be very hard for you to look for discounts.

Befriend them

This technique may be not so easy to do since it’s hard to befriend a busy stranger. But this is very effective in terms of looking for discounts. You might want to ask them personal questions like where they live. There’s a great possibility that you know someone in their place which earns your closure to that particular seller. You should ask questions about how far is their house from your friend’s house or are they close with your friends or do they even talk. Once done with this, the closure you get just by talking and talking will help you earn that discount and a bonus of having a friend in the market.

Walk Away

This is the funniest way to successfully get that discount. Once they won’t give you that discount, you can attempt to walk away as if you are not interested. Sellers’ goal is to earn money and empty their stall so any purchase is important. Once you walk away, they will chase you and just accept the price you offer as long as they can still profit from it.
