Haggling: Where two characters, a buyer and seller, attempt to strike a bargain, and keep working towards a value that costs neither their opponent or themselves too much. Usually at breakneck Motor Mouth pace.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A common variation is when a character, frequently The Ditz or a Cloudcuckoolander, drives the price up when buying, or drives it down when selling. Another has the party that holds all the power responding to any attempt to haggle by keeping her offer exactly the same, or even worsening it.

The Rihannsu bargain backwards, with the seller trying for a low price and the buyer for a higher one. A House that thinks well of its own honor will try to bargain the prices higher. The protagonist of the second book, whose job is analogous to a housekeeper, has to balance what honor requires her to pay with the amount the somewhat impoverished household can actually afford.

In Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale you can do this if a customer thinks your prices are too high (or you're offering too little if they're selling); however, you get more experience points if you get the price they want on the first try.

Ranma ½: To get back at Ranma for accidentally destroying an expensive concert ticket, Nabiki dedicates an entire day to making him miserable. At the end of the chapter, Nabiki manipulates him into thinking she took off all her clothes. Her family happens to come home at the same time and they both know he'll get in trouble if they're caught in such a situation. After he urges her to put some clothes on, they start haggling over her price for getting dressed.

In Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Yoda loves to haggle. It's very hard to get the better of a Jedi Master of Yoda's caliber, and he quite enjoys this fact. In this case, he gets a fantastic bargain on a used freighter—because it doesn't fly anymore. But that's okay, the Padawans can fix it up in no time!

The very popular show about a Las Vegas pawn shop, Pawn Stars, operates on the basis of lots of haggling. "Never accept the seller's first offer" is a semi-official rule. In some cases with the seller or the buyer sticking to a close price, the other party is shown agonizing whether to give in over the difference.

In Dragon Quest III, you can haggle in the Middle East Fantasy Counterpart Culture town. Generally, you can get items that aren't otherwise available for some time, but you'll end up paying twice the price they would otherwise be worth later. For example, the Iron Helm, usually sold for 1,000 gold, starts at 20,000 gold, and gets bargained down to 2,000 gold.

One episode of That '70s Show had Leo and Kelso haggling over the sale price of an El Camino. In a rare flash of intelligence (you know, compared to usual) Kelso realizes that he's driving the price the wrong way. Then as Kelso asks for $500, Leo says no. Then asks for $500. They agree, shake hands, and both walk away thinking that the other man is a sucker.

In The Mummy, Evelyn bargained with Rick's jailer to stop Rick's execution by hanging in exchange for a portion of the artifacts or value of the artifacts found at Hamunaptra. The two argued over the deal while Rick slowly suffocated as the rope didn't break his neck, but the jailer loses track of which side of the deal he's on.

In Harry Potter, Dobby reveals that he haggled down the amount of money and free time that Dumbledore initially offered him to work at Hogwarts. He is prideful of being a free elf with his own income and leisure time, but he's still happy working (as most house elves find Happiness in Slavery) and doesn't want too much.

In Dilbert, Dogbert became a used car salesman. One customer thought he'd done a good job talking Dogbert down to $3,500. Dogbert replied to his brag, "It's the first time someone's bought the car they came in."
He sold another car by claiming it belonged to an infamous diamond smuggler, but handled poorly, almost as if there were hidden weights in the doors...

In The Ghost of Ochs, Constance tries to buy a rare magic tome from Anna, who is selling it at a 20% markup due to her normal supplier being stymied by bandits. After receiving some monetary assistance from Monica, Constance tries to talk Anna into lowering her markup to 5%, but Anna won't budge any further than 10%, stating she needs to make some kind of profit out of the deal.

On King of the Hill, Hank very much does not know how to haggle, at least when it comes to buying a car. Back in the day, a car salesman had convinced naive teenage Hank buying his first car that the sticker price was actually the lowest price you could get, and that he'd be willing to offer this "special low price" to Hank for as long as he stayed a loyal customer. This causes problems for Peggy, who does know how to haggle, and gets the salesman down to a good price, only for Hank to barge in and undo all her hard work by plopping down the sticker price without a second thought.

The Order of the Stick has Haley and a merchant in the desert haggle over some magic armor. They settle on a price of 16 grand, with Haley's boots dyed to match. The merchant actually tries tugging on Haley's heartstrings, which doesn't work.
In the same strip, Elan tries the same thing. He's offered a Belt of Charisma for 6,000. He pays 8,000, and thinks he's so good that he got it in one try. It then turns out Haley had actually budgeted for this kind of thing.
A later strip has Haley negotiate off-panel to reduce the cost of airship repairs and refueling from 200,000 to 43,000, and the time needed from a week to the following morning* Also, she gets coupons for a potion vendor and free brunch. The next strip shows that she used hamfisted offers of product placement to haggle.

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball got a lot of attention before its release because, despite ostensibly being a free-to-download collection of baseball minigames, it uses a haggling system to unlock new levels—using real money. The interesting aspect about this case is that the game intends you to bargain your way to low prices and that's a good thing for Rusty as his life manages to improve as he receives less money for the games he sells.

In Farscape this is the main reason Moya's crew keeps Rygel around, he's an annoying arrogant gasbag but he does know how to get a good deal. And they're on a shoestring budget most of the time.
Scorpius once used the not budging technique. Some goods of his had been sold off when he was thought to be dead. He insists on triple their value. His opponent offers double. He again suggests triple. They settle on triple.

On Neopets, you can haggle the price when buying from NPC shops. You can generally get a better price at a user-owned shop though, so most of the time it's not really worth it. Be warned: if you haggle for too long without coming to an agreement, you will eventually get thrown out of the shop.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: Jack tries to do this to Davey Jones. At one point, he uses Will's situation to appeal to Jones' softer side. He also uses a variation of the page quote when Jones says two souls aren't equivalent. They settle on 99 souls in exchange for Jack's own soul. Both sides know this is an Impossible Task, but Jack had no intention of following through anyway (he needed the time to find a way out from under the deal), and Jones is content to wait because he knows Jack is doomed anyway.

The Game of the Ages - It takes an extended haggling session to get your Magic Armor of Magic cheap enough to buy. But that's nothing compared to your drawn-out struggle to sell a mouldy life-preserver. You eventually do - for one coin.

Haggling mechanics work similarly in Uncharted Waters: New Horizons: when purchasing goods, you can stack up multiple discounts to reduce the price drastically. Having a Book Keeper with the Negotiation perk automatically reveals the lowest price the seller will agree to (or the highest for a buyer).

On 30 Rock, Jack likes to haggle so much that he does it for fun. When Josh wants to negotiate his contract, he asks for a 15 percent raise. Jack counters with a dollar. When Josh makes some more demands, Jack counters with 75 cents. In the same episode, high on negotiating, he also ends up setting a meeting time with TGS's producer Pete for the middle of the night. Not because that was at all convenient for him, but just because he wanted the rush of winning a negotiation by getting the other guy to agree to something he didn't want.
It gets more intense than that in a later season episode when Liz's contract is up for renovation. She finds an old learn-to-negotiate self-help videotape which Jack recorded and marketed when he was younger and starts using his own tricks against him. He quickly realizes what's happened and begins correcting her application of his techniques and soon he's literally negotiating against himself on both sides. Much to his surprise, Jack-as-Liz-as-Jack wins, because he uses Jack-as-himself's affection for Liz as leverage.
He almost suffers a complete Heroic BSoD when his nanny demolishes him in negotiating her contract (sitting back and peeling an orange while he makes one classic negotiating mistake after another. When he realizes the power she had stemmed from her caretaker role for his infant daughter he regains his confidence and uses the same technique against his new bosses (with the newly purchased NBC standing in as their "baby")

Angband and Trade Wars both support a back-and-forth version where the player would have to suggest a price, the merchant would counter with a higher one, and negotiations went from there. Suggesting too low of a price could get you kicked out of the shop forever. Angband has an "auto-haggle" option that simply presents the player with a final price in between those which would be obtained with no haggling and with perfect haggling.

Sale of the Century, as the name implies, is based around selling people things at ridiculous prices (ie. $10 for a jukebox), so this frequently occurs whenever an Instant Bargain/Gift Shop appears; the host would frequently try to entice the player in the lead (only said player could buy the prize, unless there was a tie, in which case whoever buzzed in first would win it) with additional cash or by slashing the price to get them to buy. One infamous contestant from the syndicated Jim Perry run, Alice Conkwright, turned down every single Instant Bargain offered to her throughout her reign as champion, resulting in several hilarious moments from her refusals.

In Feet of Clay, a number of Golems show up in the middle of the night to sell one of their own to a businessman. He's a bit perturbed by this, as the Golem in question looks suspiciously new, he's heard lots of spooky stories about them going mad, and the other Golems keep lowering the price without prompting. Eventually it gets so low he can't resist, and buys it for $10...which the Golems drop into the bowl of a beggar as they leave, since they didn't care about the money anyway.

Haggling is a gameplay mechanic in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: when attempting to sell an item to or buy it from a vendor, he or she will first propose a base price for it, which is based on the item's intrinsic value, repair state, and the vendor's disposition to the PC. The PC can then suggest a higher or lower price (when selling and buying, respectively), which the vendor can accept, sealing the deal, or reject, letting the player try again. In Morrowind, when a vendor rejects a price, their disposition actually goes down, forcing the player to make a slightly more generous offer next time or break off the negotiation and try to sweet-talk them again.

Vex'ahlia in Critical Role will not only haggle with shop owners to lower prices, but also persuade her own teammates to lower material costs. However, she will pay full price if her True Companions are in danger and need help. On one particularly memorable occasion, Grog tried to haggle a shopkeeper, and ended up trading more than he asked for. Vex was livid when she found out.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: Jack tries to do this to Davey Jones. At one point, he uses Will's situation to appeal to Jones' softer side. He also uses a variation of the page quote when Jones says two souls aren't equivalent. They settle on 99 souls in exchange for Jack's own soul. Both sides know this is an Impossible Task, but Jack had no intention of following through anyway (he needed the time to find a way out from under the deal), and Jones is content to wait because he knows Jack is doomed anyway.

Yojimbo of Final Fantasy X will only work for Yuna if she pays him, but you get an opportunity to haggle over the price. (What an aeon needs money for is anyone's guess.) If you suddenly offer him three times what his current asking price is, he'll actually throw in some rare spheres.

This Bites!:
Arguing with Nami over what share of the Skypiea gold the rest of the crew gets, Luffy jumps in and starts increasing the amount the crew gets each round. This annoys Nami so much that she doesn't pay attention and jumps at Vivi's offer of 50% (phrased as double five squared percent). Exactly as Vivi planned.
Vivi negotiates with Franky over his payment for building the Thousand Sunny. They reach an impasse until Cross introduces Franky to Boss, who is just as manly as he is.

The Wire:
Proposition Joe gets his nickname from his Catchphrase "I got a proposition for you," which basically always translates to "Do You Want to Haggle?"
Omar does this with Proposition Joe when Omar attempts to sell drugs to Proposition Joe that Omar stole from Prop Joe in the first place. When Omar asks for 20 cents on the dollar, Prop Joe offers 10 cents on the dollar, prompting Omar to counter with 30 cents on the dollar if Prop Joe tries to haggle any more.
And then, of course, there are repeated scenes where the cops and district attorneys haggle for information or plea bargains.
In Season 2, perennial screw up Ziggy Sobotka tries to get involved in the world of selling drugs, but he screws up the drugs he buys from a gangster called Cheese, and then has the gangsters coming after him for the money he's supposed to be kicking back to them from his sales. In desperation, Ziggy gives them his beloved car to take as collateral, but Cheese destroys the car for the lolz and keeps coming after Ziggy to get the money. Ziggy's cousin Nick goes to Proposition Joe (who is both Cheese's boss and uncle) and haggles Joe into getting Cheese to not only cancel his cousin's debt but also to make Cheese pay Ziggy the difference in Blue Book price of the destroyed Camaro, since the car was worth more than the money Ziggy owed Cheese. Nick only gets away with it all because he knows some important people from the international syndicate that supplies Prop Joe with drugs.

Quest for Glory uses this in games 2 and 3, which take place in fantasy versions of Arabia and Africa respectively. Generally, it's best to get the price right in one go, as failures will cause the vendor to raise their minimum. The sole exception to this is the meat merchant in 3, who is such an Extreme Doormat that you buy his wares at 1 gold coin a pop and he'll still kiss your butt and call you "Master".
Also worth mentioning is the bead maker, an elderly woman who barely speaks your language and thus is completely immune to any attempts at haggling.

Glod of Soul Music fails spectacularly at haggling; he always insists on trying it and always ends up driving the price up (and thinking he got them a bargain in the process).
Repeatedly averted with "Cut Me Own Throat" Dibbler, who will generally continue lowering his prices the longer you speak with him, without prompting. Given the usual nature of his wares, this is something of a necessity.
In Feet of Clay, a number of Golems show up in the middle of the night to sell one of their own to a businessman. He's a bit perturbed by this, as the Golem in question looks suspiciously new, he's heard lots of spooky stories about them going mad, and the other Golems keep lowering the price without prompting. Eventually it gets so low he can't resist, and buys it for $10...which the Golems drop into the bowl of a beggar as they leave, since they didn't care about the money anyway.

In 1st edition Ironclaw Haggling was a skill. But like many other skills in 2nd its functions were folded into other skills (Negotiation, Deceit, Inquiry) and a "haggling" Gift granting a bonus d12 on those skills in that situation (and an automatic 10% discount on cheap items) was added.

Averted in the first Dragon Quest - the manual clearly explains that you, the player, can't haggle the price of sold items. In other words, Alefgard merchants will accept your old equipment for half its original price and won't haggle because they are very stubborn.

In the Book of Genesis in The Bible, there's a story where Abraham is in effect haggling with God over how many good people there need to be in the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in order for God to spare it from destruction. Abraham manages to bargain God down to 10 good people. Unfortunately for them, there aren't even 10.

In the Serpentwar Saga, Roo plays a Get-Rich-Quick Scheme which basically consists of attempting to corner the export of wheat to cities about to get hit by locusts. Then a captain from one of these cities shows up in port. Conversation paraphrased:

Near the end of the second episode of the first season of K-On!, Mugi politely asks the music store clerk if she could haggle over the price of a 250,000-yen Les Paul guitar, way beyond the 50,000-yen budget Yui had. She succeeds once the clerk sees Mugi's Big Ol' Eyebrows and recognizes her as the daughter of the president of the conglomerate that owns the store.

Star Wars Legends:
Used in the entry on the Bimms in The Essential Guide to Alien Species. Anthropologist Mammon Hoole needs to buy some equipment and is initially stunned at the price, then remembers that the Bimms intentionally inflate their prices because they like haggling. They agree on a more reasonable price a couple of paragraphs later.
In Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Yoda loves to haggle. It's very hard to get the better of a Jedi Master of Yoda's caliber, and he quite enjoys this fact. In this case, he gets a fantastic bargain on a used freighter—because it doesn't fly anymore. But that's okay, the Padawans can fix it up in no time!
This is one of the species hat for the Squibs. They love to make deals and use their cute, unassuming appearance to their advantage. In Squib culture, the more complex, bizarre, and outrageous the deal, the more prestigious it is.
In The Corellian Trilogy, Artoo and Threepio have discovered something horrible about a local woman Lando intends to marrynote She forms a psychic bond with her husband that keeps him in perfect health for about five years, after which she can no longer support his existence and he dies. and hire a cab. Threepio starts to try to haggle down the price, but seeing as they're in somewhat of a hurry, Artoo just gives the cabbie their entire emergency fund.

Firefly:
Before stealing or smuggling something, the crew almost always has a fence and a price lined up. Unfortunately, the fence generally decides to renegotiate, which causes Jayne or Zoë to draw their guns, only for Mal to stand them down and put on his haggling smirk. In the episode Serenity, originally planned as the pilot, they realize a fence is preparing to betray them when she declines to haggle and just accepts the initial offer.
In the episode "Safe" the haggling session appears to be pre-arranged from both sides, given that Mal already knows the price they eventually settled on and the buyer apparently having pre-prepared a purse with the appropriate amount.

Ethan tries this in Black Friday when he can't afford a couple of movie tickets for himself and Hannah. The kid behind the counter exasperatedly points out that this is a chain movie theater in a shopping mall; not exactly the sort of place you can haggle. (Ethan also tries physical threats, but that doesn't work, either.)

Family Guy:
Peter offers completely random prices with no rhyme or reason. As Brian explains to the salesman, "He doesn't know how to haggle."
Peter tries to haggle with Brian over an item he already owns at his own yard sale.

Star Trek: Voyager. Although Voyager has been accused by fans (not without justification) of having Infinite Supplies, quite a few episodes show them negotiating for supplies from the various species they encounter. Usually Neelix handles it, but Captain Janeway is shown to have skills in this area too, in one case managing to successfully haggle with a telepath despite his mind-reading advantage. In fact the first time Janeway and Neelix meet, they immediately haggle for his help as a Native Guide — Janeway is surprised when the price Neelix is aiming for turns out to be water.

Voltron: Legendary Defender: This is how deals are made in traditional space pirate swap malls. However, after ten thousand years, Coran's knowledge is a little out of date, and the Wretched Hive Of Scum And Villainy he expected has turned into a perfectly pleasant shopping experience with fixed prices. It takes Coran a while to find someone who still deals in the traditional way; they mostly yell ridiculous offers at each other until they somehow come to an agreement.

On Gor almost all business transactions, large or small, are accomplished through haggling. Often after the haggling is over, the buyer will give twice the amount agreed upon, "because I want to pay what it's worth." Then the seller will return all the overage and a good amount of the original price "because I do not want to cheat you." Slaves, however, are usually purchased via auction.

In Weekend at Hisao's, Shizune haggles over the price of a pair of pants to buy her younger brother Hideaki. It helps that she's a Spirited Competitor who takes everything seriously. Slightly different in that Hisao has to translate everything between the shopkeeper and Shizune due to her deafness and the shopkeeper not understanding sign language.
