The price is the most common issue negotiated between buyer and seller. But according to salespeople, buyers generally do little more than just say the sellers price is too high and must be reduced - a strategy sellers are very prepared to deal with. Buyers must level up their negotiation skills by being able to sell the supplier on why the sellers price is too high.
