However, there are certain scenarios where you may find someone wanting to haggle at the price. When this happens, I’m much more in favour of keeping to that set price but then adding more value for the customer. For example, you can say ‘no that is my price, I am sticking to it, I’m not coming down from that, but I will be more than happy to give you one of my prints as well.’ You want to show the customer you value them by adding extra value.
Be confident about your pricing as you don’t want to get haggled down, as it won’t show the person buying, the true value of the art.
Galleries, they work in a similar way. If you have a piece of artwork in a gallery, priced at a certain point and you’re still selling that artwork as well, make sure it’s the same price as it is at the gallery. It doesn’t matter if the gallery gets 50% commission for selling it, you don’t need to reduce your selling price – you want consistent pricing. It’s fair on the customer and easier for you!
