Whether you are in Australia or other English-speaking countries for study, travel, or other reasons, there will inevitably be times.

So, how do you bargain with the seller in an authentic English? Please see the authoritative information brought by Professor Kangaroo:

1. Can you give me a little deal on this?

Can this be sold cheaper?

Can you give me this for cheaper?

Could it be cheaper for me?

These two sentences are the simplest way of bargaining.


2. Is there any discount on bulk purchases?

Can I get a discount if I buy more?

"Bulkpurchases" means "buy in bulk", which is equivalent to "buysomething in bulk".


3. Please give me a discount.

Give me a discount.

"Discount" means discount. The sign that often appears in stores for discounts is "onsale."

A store that specializes in selling cheap goods is called a "bargain store", and a counter that sells cheap goods in a store can be called a "bargain counter".


4. Don't try to rip me off.

When buying items, you must not appear to be "non-experts", otherwise you will easily be charged wildly.

And when you say something with full momentum: "Hey, don't try to rip me off. I know what this is worth", even if you don’t know what this is worth, you have already calmed the opponent in momentum. .

"Rip someone off" means a shop or vendor trying to slaughter its customers. This sentence means "Don't want to kill me, I know the goods."

If misfortune is really slaughtered, you can also say, "I was ripped off" or "I was cleaned out".

Tips for Australia-China Business:

Because in the "shopping mall" (shopping mall), "supermarket" (supermarket) and "departmentstore" (department store), except for large commodities, general items are not discounted.

Bargaining in these places is obviously not suitable, therefore, all the above questions only apply to places like "market" (market).
