Definition of the noun bargaining
What does bargaining mean as a name of something?
- the negotiation of the terms of a transaction or agreement

- lexical domain: Communicative Processes - nouns denoting communicative processes and contents
- more generic words: dialogue / negotiation / talks = a discussion intended to produce an agreement
- more specific terms:
- plea bargaining / plea bargain = a negotiation in which the defendant agrees to enter a plea of guilty to a lesser charge and the prosecutor agrees to drop a more serious charge
- wrangling / haggling / wrangle / haggle = an instance of intense argument
- holdout = a refusal by a negotiator to come to terms in the hope of obtaining a better deal
"Bargaining" is a composition.
Bargaining or haggling is a type of negotiation in which the buyer and seller of a good or service debate the price and exact nature of a transaction. If the bargaining produces agreement on terms, the transaction takes place. Bargaining is an alternative pricing strategy to fixed prices. Optimally, if it costs the retailer nothing to engage and allow bargaining, he/she can divine the buyer's willingness to spend. It allows for capturing more consumer surplus as it allows price discrimination, a process whereby a seller can charge a higher price to one buyer who is more eager. Haggling has largely disappeared in parts of the world where the cost to haggle exceeds the gain to retailers for most common retail items. However, for expensive goods sold to uninformed buyers such as automobiles, bargaining can remain commonplace.
