Buying things in the market can be a very tedious task at times, especially when you have to haggle a lot over the prices of things.
Growing up in the north, haggling wasn’t such a tedious task because the traders hardly every added too much profit of the initial price they give to you, so sometimes you didn’t even need to haggle.
In a place like Lagos however, almost every time you as of a price of an item, the seller calls a price that is almost two time the actual selling price so if you don’t know how to haggle, you will end up being cheated.
In many places today, haggling is a skill that not many have and almost everyone needs to learn so as not to lose your money to ridiculous pricing and market mark-up styles.
