In my eBay, Bonanzle and IOffer stores, the art of haggling comes with the territory. "Is that the best you can do?" is often the first question that begins the gentle duel.

In many parts of the world, haggling is expected no matter what the purchase. In North America, it is often limited to big-ticket items such as jewelry and automobiles. However, it has quickly become the norm during our recession and is likely to remain a permanent part of the landscape even after sales recover.

America’s Research Group found in a survey taken earlier this year that 72% of consumers tried to better the price tag in the past year in a smaller or specialty store businesses. Remarkable 80% of the time, they succeeded in paying less than the ticketed amount.

So the next time you think you cannot afford that item you are drooling over in my internet stores , think again and polish you’re haggling skills.
