Do bargaining in shopping really benefits the buyers?Bargaining in shopping is a common practice with most of Indians particularly those belonging to middle class and lower middle class persons. There are many markets in almost all cities which are famous for bargaining. Bargaining while shopping fruits, vegetables and almost everything has become a routine practice.
Normally, the people are so obsessed with bargaining during shopping that they look for discounts and offers even in high end shops and malls. Many online portals also attract buyers by launching several types of schemes. I remember having read that few online portals also offer bargaining facility or system.
However, I personally don't believe in bargaining as I presume that the sellers will never sell their products by incurring loss on their part.
