Author Topic: Should punters be haggling over pro$$ie rates more often?  (Read 5502 times)

Depends on how the haggling is done. If the punter is polite e.g. "Would really like an hour with you, would you consider seeing me for x amount?" then I see no issue. As long as it isn't taking the piss, like 10 quid for an hour instead of my usual rate.

Exactly right  :thumbsup:

Haggling, in previous generations, used to be a bit taboo here in Blighty. But over time has become much more mainstream/accepted. A politely presented lower offer may be an acceptable compromise when the alternative is likely to be a big fat zero.  :unknown:

I don't offer discounts for financial reasons. I can't expect everyone else I have to pay money to to reduce their prices. I also think that if you are setting your rates at a sensible price not many people will try to haggle anyway.

Nobody is saying that you have to haggle. It's your "business", charge what you want.

What we are calling bullshit on is your statement that no business allows negotiation (which is ridiculous, most do) and the fact you would block anybody who asks (sensible business plan  :dash:).

Stupid  :hi:

Haggling is no different from.getting discounts

Booking airlines holidays and train or event tickets are cheaper beforehand or on the day  - it's no different to haggling  if you do it well

In my opinion most girls who demand or expect or kind of ask for gifts are easily negotiated or baffled down but I am unsure if you do haggle down if the experience would be better than her full rate

Ny guess is if you baffled a working girl the experiance would be shit unless she offered the discount if you hinted that you might be free on such a day or if you said you have a target of xx which you can't break

You may not think it's a sensible 'business' plan but it works for me. I'm not a newbie and I'm not stupid, im not going to fix what isn't broken, especially when it comes to my income.

If it works now that is good for you, but your income is not fixed and there is the possibility that if it starts to be quiet then you will earn less. If that happens would you still stay with your way of working or look to maximise your time/income by changing your rates. ?

I like the phrase that girls are "sitting on a goldmine" but as in the Yukon they get played out and exhausted and men end up scratching about in them to make a living.  :D

If I was getting quieter and my income was dropping I'd reduce/alter my rates myself. I'm too much of a control freak to allow anyone to decide for me. And finally if that wasn't working I'd give it up and get a different job.

To say that no business or service providers tolerate negotiation is stupid, the vast majority do.

To block punters (your source of income) who dare to commit this most heinous crime is stupid too.

 J Always ask for "Todays Rate" please ,,  this way you are not being rude and can save you money  got to say very few WG have a finacial brain beyond next week, they dont seem to get that their looks will go one day and the phone will go cold forever, if they decide on this  work lifestyle stash the cash while you can, any booking with a clean respectful punter at a slightely lower rate  has got to be better then no bookings. This forum sometimes dont help when members constantly bang on about how good a girl is but its cost them £150 hr plus ,, think about it £150 for the average punter thats quite a bit of cash ,  accept most punts wont be amazing and do your homework reference rates , that way when you have a duff one it wont hurt as much to your soul or wallet and when good will feel really good  ,,got to say I'm a big fan of the 30min £50 punt  :

I rarely haggle anyway because I am normally a one hour punter who pays between £100 and £120 an hour ------- however if a girl decided to increase her rates I would expect my fee to remain the same, if she refused I would move on, there are thousands of prostitutes out there to choose from.   :hi:

More evidence of your stupidity, you're completely missing the point.

Nobody is saying you have to negotiate, just that most other businesses/service providers do or at least will listen to offers (you claimed otherwise) and that it is stupid to block your source of income just for asking.

No wonder you've ended up a prostitute.

Always leave your mind open to other options.

Your rates are not high but you have trouble with maths. You charge £100 for the hour, for Hour and half it is an increase of £20 to £120 which is very reasonable (for the area I stay in) but for a further 30 minutes the 2 hour rate is £160 ? a further £40. the incremental increases between time slots do not follow any logical pattern. They are either the same rate that applies to 30 minutes and increases or it decreases as the time extends. Unusual for it to increase  :rolleyes:


Your own FAQ states

Q. Can you do me a discount?    A. No. This is my income and my rates are set. UNLESS I specify a special offer!

So you do change your rates .......unless the fag's are untrue  :rolleyes:

Why do wg's "bow out" when they can not answer a simple question on their profiles  :rolleyes:

My advice is to not put yourself into a corner and leave your mind open to other ways of working, If a guy came along and said that he wanted to see you for 4 hours but could only get £250 from the ATM (your rate 280) then you would turn him down and block him  :wacko:

So for 4 hours you would take a chance on 3-4 punters wanting to book you to earn the same money or 1 punter who even if he tried could not fuck relentlessly for the 4 hours.  :crazy:

All of our contracts are negotiated, some are 7 figures and many years  in length, there is no set fee for anything as it depends on what the client requires. It is how the world works (except Germany, fucking hate working there)

I'll leave you gentlemen to it.

I have an excellent example to prove your point.   :thumbsup:

I have been with the Automobile Association for over 20 years, a couple of years ago I was not happy with the renewal quote, I thought a large organization like that would not be open to negotiation ---------- I was wrong.
When I phoned them to say I was thinking of leaving  they put me through to customer services and a very nice young lady said that she could give me a discount of £50 if I changed my mind.
If you don't ask, you don't get.    :drinks:

Prostitutes seem to think they are a special case, they are not.    :thumbsdown:

In my fairly brief experience some degree of haggling is acceptable. Results vary. I texted one girl who'd put her prices up after I'd seen her at her previous - lower - rate to see if as a "regular" - stretching it a bit as I'd only seen her the once - she'd be happy with the earlier rate. No answer. (Rather rude, I thought but hey.) With another girl I've negotiated a deal whereby if I pay a lump sum upfront I get to see her for 5 sessions instead of 4. I guess a kind of mini sugar daddy arrangement. Haggling is very much the norm when you're paying a fair wad of money: I haggled a deal re: some panel work on my car, and on some work on the roof last year. Provided you're not taking the piss, it's surely fine.

That is a VERY risky thing to do, I would not advise anyone else to do it --------------- just as I wouldn't pay a builder upfront for work he hasn't done.      :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

Can I suggest that you read up on some simple economics, chapter one:- Supply and Demand, the basics. Follow that up with a course  in civility for dummies.

At the end of the day, some girls wont budge and like someone said above does it really matter to you? You either pay it or you don't- thousands of other girls out there.
By the same token, thousands of other punters out there will be willing to pay what a girl wants because if they weren't, she'd take a  hint and lower her rates.

Prostitutes seem to think they are a special case, they are not.    :thumbsdown:

Blocking prospective clients who politely ask for a deal is unnecessary and bad for any business imo. It's definitely not rude and to think it is suggests a fundamental lack of commercial awareness. The smart wgs will leave themselves open to accept offers of deals on bookings, just as many of them do on reverse bookings.

I've personally not yet asked for a deal on a straight booking but, in the light of this thread, am going to do so, if only to see what kind of reaction it prompts. But fear not Sienna, I wouldn't dare attempt to do so with you  ;)
