Pre-negotiation: Preparation is essential in order to efficiently bargain or negotiate, the more information you have the more likely you are to achieve better results in negotiation. Researching what you negotiating will give a realistic view of what you’re objectives in the negotiation will be. A lack of realistic goals may result in leaving the negotiation with nothing at all. Consider what is valuable to your business, not the costs. You may end up losing something in the negotiation that is more valuable to your business than money. It could be a reliable client or your company reputation. Knowing which are the best times to negotiate, for example, bargaining at the end of the day in a flea market that when seller want to get rid of the extra stock that was not sold, will give you a very strong bargaining position.

Rules for bargaining: 1- Research the product you are thinking of buying. Find out how much the product is worth to avoid being fooled to pay a higher price. And by having knowledge of the market price you can say that you have seen this product at a cheaper price in an other place even if its not true. Salespeople won't want to lose the sale to another store who will, in turn, be gaining you as their customer. 2- Try to find defects or problems with the product. a rip in a shirt or a stain on a pair of pants will make your bargaining position much better and is an easy way to get cheap prices on expensive products 3- Set a realistic goal price for the product. Before you start bargaining you should know what deal you want and why it is realistic. Suggest a price low enough for there to be a difference between your maximum price and the paying price, but not too low that you are being ridiculous and insulting the salesperson. An offer between 15 and 25

percent below what you’re prepared to pay is a common tactic 4- Act relaxed and look like you don’t “have to have” the product. If the seller is not lowering the price, don’t be afraid to leave. Most salespeople would rather make less money on a sale than totally lose a sale, so chances are, the salesperson will change his mind. 5- Timing. If you are bargaining at a flea market for example, the best timing is at the end of the day, just before the seller leaves. At the end of the day the seller will want to sell the remaining stock specially if he had a very slow day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
