I saw these two people competing for the rights to sell an item where the person would get paid a percentage of the final sale price. Imagine it is like someone wanting to sell his business and so he wants to hire someone to sell it for him. It is a pretty large dollar amount too and so you can imagine people saying anything to win the rights.
This was the funny part I thought. Basically, people would have to pitch on why they are the best person for the job and their fees. The owner is a pretty stingy person too who usually just wants the cheapest option available. One person just mentioned what his flat rate was which sounded pretty normal. Then, the other personâ€™s rate was the same figure. However, he had an interesting twist where he said that he was giving the owner a 10% break in his fee.
Again, it was the same amount as the other guy. Interestingly enough, the owner even mentioned that since he was getting a discount he would go with that guy. Didnâ€™t really have much to do with who would provide the better service. I guess with examples like this you can see why some companies imply that certain items have a 50% off sale price when in reality the price is the same everywhere else. Or sometimes what people do is just mark up the price on the sale day to make it look like you are getting a better deal.
