Nigerian markets are hot, busy, and tough for the novice – so BattaBox helps you with tips and tricks on how to bargain for the best price!
If you enter any market in Nigeria, you need to know how to get the best price for the goods you want to buy. Whether you call it bargaining, haggling, or pricing – you need to be savvy and smart to beat the marketer. So BattaBox Presenter shows you how to bargain!
Firstly, make sure you find the product you want in the market, and talk directly with the salesperson on sizes, colors, and quality of what you want to buy. If you don’t want it, don’t buy it!
Secondly, the first question you ask is – “How much are you pricing for this product?”
And the bargaining then begins! The marketer will make sure he tries to sell for the highest price possible so he can earn some money, and you want to bargain for the lowest price possible so you can save some money.
If you are not happy with the price, you have to be prepared to walk away – or at least, look like you are prepared to walk away. This will keep the market seller on their toes. But if they let you walk away and then you come back, the haggling gets harder!
