I have heard that I should pay about 1/4 to 1/3rd or the opening price.

We have been to Thailand so we are used to the bartering process. However for things like DVD's if one dvd costs say 10k rupiah could I expect to get 11 for 100k? or 12 for 200k?

I used to find that they would normally accept 1/3rd of the opening price if you haggled with them for a while & said you were leaving once or twice. Is this the same?

I never buy on the 1st day of being there & always save most things till I get used to the way thisngs work.
