    Online sellers,

    Lets say you offer a service, product, item or whatever for $100 for a single sale. How big a discount (in %) would you offer if I found you 25 buyers, would 25 buyers be enough? Should I get you 50 sales before you would consider to give a noteworthy discount?

    For example;

    Lets say you sell jeans for $100 a pair, what if I told you that I had 25 buysers ready to buy your jeans for $70 a pair. Would you be interested?

    I did a little searching....
    40-50% discount is offered by some sellers.

    Hmmm...

    depends on the product.

    If you are selling services than you can give such a discount
    If you are selling products than you can not.

    It's all about the ROI, so you question depends on the actual service/product, and not on the price

    You just can not tell it in %, you first have to know the product.

    When I'm selling banner ads per CPM I can give you a discount up to 50% if you are an older customer because the market of CPM is almost dead. On an order of 2500$ you would get 50% discount

    When I'm selling articles I can't give you such a discount because articles are "products" that have costs of creating. On an order of 2500$ you could get 10% MAX.

    As I said, you first have to know the product/service and the costs of creating, and then you can add the discount. There is no "universal" discount for the whole market.
