First rule: Always bargain at the bazaars and Souks. Salesmen in rug, jewelery and leather shops go on commission foundation; so never accept the first or second offer. Sometimes you can even wake to 70% discount over the native price.
2) Try to decide the price at how much you would be willing to pay for it in your home nation. Fix the price in your idea and stick to it. On the other hand, always keep in your idea the value of the local money. Try to consider in the local currency; most items might sound low when converted to dollar but might be quite expensive for local folk. So purchase favor a local.
3) Most salesmen understand numerous languages, so do not consult anything in front of them.
4) Use power of 'No thank you!': At fewest learn this phrase in the local language and use it when you are hassled. Smile and walk away.
5) Keep your own currency and honor cards out of sight. It is easier to haggle over a price with your 'limited' regional money.
6) Guides obtain commission over your purchases. If you are not satisfied with the price, try to come back on your free day and retard the alike item by the additional shops. So different golden rule: Have a free day for shopping!
7) The top touristy areas such for Khan El-Khalili ordinarily visited in Cairo tours alternatively Grand Bazaar in Istanbul will have the maximum expensive costs. Find out the residential shopping places as better bargains.
Cool For items where quality is momentous try to ascertain a nailed price shop. You may disburse little more but the quality will be superior.
9) Haggling is necessary if you are purchasing tall merit items, such as gold and jewelery, yet with low merit merchandise it is not all worthy the time and effort.

11) Always shop nigh. Never buy at the 1st shop; you can always come back. Shopkeepers will try to argue you that they offer you the best value,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but will not be offended while you mention you ambition to see around and would come back.
12) When buying gold/silver bargain above the price per gram not the price per item.
13) Usually little grocery shops, coffee shops, supermarket chains will have fixed prices and bargaining is not accepted.
14) Shopkeepers will show excellent hospitality. They will narrate namely purchase is not necessary, they will invite you to their shop, attempt you tea, coffee; at the end you'll feel so humiliated to hike away without buying anything. Don't fall into this trap.
15) If you are buying extra than 1 item or shopping with a group, you tin haggle for a greater discount.
