1. ## How to answer this question

I told a person that the product cost \$120. How can I answer his reply "\$120 seems a little high. Is that the best you can do?"

I would like to reply the person \$100

Thanks

'I can go as low as \$100.'

'I can let you have it for \$100 but no less.'

'I'll take \$100 and that's my lowest offer.'

'\$100 — take it or leave it.'

There are many ways you could reply.
These are just a few possibilities.

I'm prepared to go down to \$100.
I'll go to \$100, but no less/lower.
I'll take \$100 for it.
How does \$100 sound?
\$100 is my lowest price.

Or you could say, "OK, make me an offer". He might say \$110.

Will 'How about \$100?' encourage the other party to make an offer or negotiate some more to below \$100?

If he likes the offer of \$100 he'll take it. If he wants to go lower then he might suggest another price, but he has that option no matter how you offer the \$100. Even if you say "\$100 is as low as I'll go", he might still say something like "It's not a bad price, but how about \$95?". Then it's up to you, you can say that \$100 is still your bottom price, or take his \$95, or even suggest \$97.50 (called "meeting him halfway" or "splitting the difference").
