Anecdotally, this has been a tough summer for online merchants. Getting consumers to part with their money in this economy is a challenge, and many merchants are looking for ways to fulfill shoppers' desires to get a bargain when making purchases. One way to do that is to allow shoppers to haggle, and this approach is not limited to car dealerships and brick-and-mortar stores. Online merchants have a number of ways to let shoppers make an offer, as you'll see in today's article, "Haggling Online - Everyone Is Doing It."
I discovered that merchants who use these Make an Offer options may be under-utilizing their automation features. No one has time to haggle with every shopper that comes along, but you can set up these features to automatically accept or decline offers based on prices you enter for each item, or an across-the-board percentage.
As a shopper, I'll be on the lookout for these features to see if I can save a few bucks.
