I support bargaining where ever bargain allow,but ,i feel embarrassing personally.As retailer feel that any how people will bargain,so he want to tell the price more high,so there is no wrong in bargaining..ofcourse,in every place it is not allowed,there may be fixed prices.

hello baluyadav! yes i do! when i go shopping in the public market i usually bargain...hehe coz i know that usually some sellers do price their products higher and even we ask for a discount they will not loss anything, i mean they still get some profit... but actually, i already have some vendor friends in the market, coz everytime i go shopping, i always buy from them...and so sometimes, i don't need to ask for a discount anymore, they give it to me already... but of course i just do it in public markets coz in supermarkets/grocery stores, their pricing is fixed... good day!

Hi,yera.Yes,i too feel that there is nothing wrong in it,but the retailers also made this convienient in selling.As they know that anyhow we do bargain in purchase,they are mentally prepared and say double the prices.All the best and have a nice time.

haha..yes my friend, that's true...and that's also why, we shoppers must be wise when purchasing. but i think to some products, vendors can't really put that high price coz there's some price control programs that the government implement...

Hi baluyadav, I bargain when i go for shopping in markets. Since all the people bargains there obviously he will tell us more price. so i will bargain. Bargaining is not there in all place only in few areas we find in other shops they will fix the prices so no chance for bargaining. Have a great day.

Hi,subramani,bargaining is o.k,but few bargain too much,which is embarrass..suppose,if the retailer says a good for 100,they may ask for 20... It is always good job that bargain where ever allows and get products at good price. Happy mylotting.

Ouch...that was my weak point... I usualy buy something without bargain first as long as I have the money. It's kind of embarasing inded when doing bargain.

I never try to bargain when I go shopping either because it is very embarrassing. I do watch for sales and buy only what I can afford to pay though. Some of the prices are way too high and you can find it cheaper some place else.

Hi friend, There are places where you can bargain and others where you can´t. It is also a matter of personality: my youngest daughter will pay what the person who sells asks for. My eldest daughter and I bargain if we can. That embarrases my youngest daughter. I don´t think there´s anything wrong with it.

hi baluyadav, I always haggle to buy any products especially those found in the open markets or stores which are located outside the mall areas as they have no fix prices and i could get more quality products which is the same brand as those products being sold within the shopping mall. Aside, from it I could transfer from other stores to compare their products which is impossible to do the bargaining done in larger mall while in the mall the only differences in shopping they are more clean, spacious, and you could buy products at lower prices during the mall sale which one have to wait as per schedule. Though, if you really like to go for lower prices then without losing its quality then saves a lot the best option is to buy in the bargain shop which sold item in a cheaper prices without losing its quality.

Hi,neeli,really many people feel that they can purchase quality goods in big stores only..but we can identify quality products with lower prices in outside also.As said you are doing right way.Thank you for response and have a nice day.
