I wish I could bargain for products just like how I do with my local dealers. These are not the words of mine, these are for you. Yes, you can call me Charles Xavier, but I know that everyone secretly wished that they could bargain for those prices online. And to surprise you, there is a way to bargain. But it is not how you would bargain offline. So in this post, I will show you how you can bargain for products online.
Did you notice one thing while shopping online that there are literally thousands of other merchants who are selling the same products? Why are they there?
You can search for more deals. But there is one obstacle, and that it is really hard to identify whether those deals are real or just another scam that is just there to snatch away your money. But those obstacles don’t just end with those scams, there are other promotional ads and dealers that also want you to purchase from them. And you should not mistake them as scammers, but there is a chance that they might not be offering you the same deal as some other sellers. And to be honest, this might make you open up to 40 tabs in your browser to compare each deal, and that is the reason why my friends think that I’m a weird person.
But this process can be really easy for people who are internet savvy. They can sense whether a website is a scam or not, and this might save some time.
If you have been wanting a particular product, then you should look out for its trends. Look out for what deals the manufacturers are currently giving, whether there is a sale or coupons being given. Most of the time, when a new version is rolled out, most manufacturers/retailers run some kind of sale or a special to get the word out about that product. Or if that product is modified from time to time. Look out for those deals. You should be on top of those trends. Another thing you should remember, is that you should not purchase a product if that technology is soon going to be outdated. It wouldn’t make any sense if you purchase a product at a cheap price that you cannot use for a long time.
Never forget the offline/traditional things. Even though the internet has given us the opportunity to shop within 15 minutes for any product that we want, there are products that you will be able to purchase at a much cheaper rate from your local dealers. You should definitely check out the offline price of the products before you make your final decision. Also, don’t forget to consider the shipping charges, they do add up to the actual price of the product.
Do you know the reason why people still purchase Apple’s products? It is mainly because of their customer support. No one offers the same support as they do. And even though you are not purchasing an Apple product, you should definitely check for the customer support of the product that you will be purchasing. Look out, or ask the dealers how you will be able to get things solved if your product breaks. How much time do they normally take to fix things, and don’t forget to ask their existing customers about the quality. You will never get a much better feedback from any other person.
The last best thing about the internet, is the vast amount of competitors. You will find that there are thousands of people/dealers/merchants who are stepping on each other to sell their products. This puts you in the position where you become the leader. You have the opportunity to select from a huge variety of products, different deals, and different types of customer support.
