Sometimes you can try to convince someone to buy X amount of merchandise from you, but sometimes this also kills your sale.
Quote from: Persona on May 09, 2011, 03:42:14 PMI know/agree with everything you just said, but this in particular jumped out at me. A lot of people have told me to price things like "One for $5 or Two for $8" so that I can sell more things at a time, but I've found that this tactic actually makes people NOT want to buy anything. The only reason I could think of is that some people think that if they can buy 2 for $8, then buying 1 for $5 isn't worth it since they theoretically could've gotten it for $4 (despite having to spend $8 instead of $5).Or maybe I'm overthinking and they just didn't want it in the first place -- totally possible too.
Quote from: Nina Star 9 on May 10, 2011, 07:56:39 AMAbout how much in change/in what denominations do you guys recommend?This is my first year selling, so I don't want to be one of the ones that runs out of change!
Quote from: akira_chan on May 10, 2011, 04:40:11 AMIt really depends on the person and item. Some people have a limited budget and will come by to buy something small to break a big bill so when you try to get them to buy more, they tend to not buy from you. Most times if you do the offer thing you mentioned they'll take it, but for some they're just trying to get smaller bills from you from someone who didn't prepare for large bills and don't have anything else they want.
