Identification The other party refuses to negotiate and discuss terms with you. They submit a proposal with a price and terms and then ask you to accept or reject on the whole.
Note A refusal to negotiate is usually a refusal to negotiate price. This is an opportunity for you. Since they are rigid on price, you can ask for concessions on other terms. Asking for clarification as to why they won’t negotiate will usually let you know where there is some room for discussion If they continue to not negotiate, you may consider choosing another company and telling they original one that had they been more willing to negotiate, they may have gotten your business.
Solution Approach them in a positive and inquisitive way. Tell them you’d love to make a deal, but you have some questions. Don’t try to negotiate right away. They will take the time to educate you. When they commit some time and energy to your education, they suddenly have more at stake in the discussion. Then, when you have more information and some creative alternatives to approach them with, they’ll be more willing to bargain. Sometimes hw you do something is just as important as what you do.
