Step 1: No matter what the shopkeeper says, just know that the price is NOT the price!
Step 2: Be confident.
Step 3: Find something you are interested in purchasing.
Step 4: Take the item to the shopkeeper and ask them how much it is, even if the price tag is clearly shown.
Step 5: Start lowering the price, ask for 50% less. (this obviously won’t work, the shopkeeper will say no, but still ask).
Step 6: Now ask for 40% less, again, this might not work, but keep asking.
Step 7: This is where you need to show your confidence, this time ask for 30% less, now the shopkeeper will start showing interest.
Step 8: Keep your confidence and stick to your 30%, if they say no, then use the following lines “but its much less at the other shop,” or something along those lines, comparing their price to another shop.
Step 9: Take out only 30% less then the asking price from your wallet, put it on counter, the shopkeeper will start smiling and shaking their head.
Step 10: Now ask for a packet, put your item in it and RUN!
