    you have sold me

    Hi

    I have heard the phrase ‘Ok, you have sold me’.
    I keep wondering whether the speaker means the other person made him believe about something. Is that correct?

    Thanks,

    MG.

    That's probably what it means, but we can't be sure unless we know the context in which it was said.
    "you've sold me" is used to mean "you've convinced me".
