Generally speaking; how much discount are we giving clients without managers approval to drag those stubborn deals over the line?

I can give 7% without approval. I typically don't, but I can.

that's queen coups to u
I can usually talk our team into giving 5% but anything more would need approval and frankly, I wouldn't offer it in 99% of cases.Β

I don't really want to give discount if I am honest, but if i did i could give 5% perhaps. I would really want the business though and there would have to be potential for other parts to supplyΒ

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I don't discount without talking to my boss. In general, I followed that rule, even when I could discount significantly, except for the times that I worked for morons. Then I would tell the morons "hey, I'm gonna do X and you should approve it."

I prefere giving them something extra for free compared to discounting.

I can give up to 5% but don't offer it unless they request it.

How do you all handle a situation where a prospect has a contract approved and is ready for signature, but one of their family members just passed away? Want to be extremely sensitive to the situation...feel there's never a "right" time to reach out and never want to be salesy...
