Bargaining

Bargaining and haggling isn't part of commercial culture in any South Pacific country – trying to do so is considered extremely rude. You might be able to shave a few dollars off a price in tourist shops and big-city markets, but in small villages locals will take their goods home rather than accept a lower price than what’s asked. The one exception is in Fiji, where Indo-Fijians expect to bargain and will often initiate the process.
