Simon Terry, managing director of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, comments: "With VAT set to rise in the near future and people needing to get their hands on the very best bargain deals around, people need to know how best to save money on all kinds of products and services. Learning some new skills on how to negotiating can help people to haggle better when buying".
"While not much of a British habit, people in the UK are still learning how to barter and haggle better to get bargains on the high street and online. The guide from Pareto teaches people how to negotiate better to get themselves the very best prices available."
Pareto's Top Tips feature –
*Do your research
Read and research to find the very best tips and hints to gain knowledge for haggling. Check out the real genuine price you should be paying for an item and also the price of various alternative solutions. Examine other suppliers too and when haggling, be sure the supplier knows that you know your stuff when negotiating.
*Negotiation isn't just about price
The salesperson may not be permitted to knock money off for you, so think differently and consider alternative ways of getting extra. Ask if you could get additional accessories or other extras in place of a discount. They might not be something you would use yourself but you could use them as gifts for friends or family.
*Don't be pressured into accepting the deal
Sales assistants can pressure buyers into accepting some deals which they're not certain about, so be aware of these tactics. Don't let them trick or con you into accepting a deal you do not really want to, and don't allow yourself to be forced into accepting a deal which you're not sure about. Remember that it's your money.
