- Know what a car is worth.
- Secure your own financing if you can.
- Always be polite.
Should you tell car dealer you paying cash?
But that’s not how car buying works. Dealers prefer buyers who finance because they can make a profit on the loan – therefore, you should never tell them you’re paying cash. You should aim to get pricing from at least 10 dealerships. Since each dealer is selling a commodity, you want to get them in a bidding war.
Do car salesmen make a lot of money?
The short answer is that most car salespeople don’t earn a whole hell of a lot of money. Dealership salespeople average about 10 car sales per month, and earn an average of about $40k per year. New vehicle sales rarely pay $300+ commissions, while used cars can sometimes pay $1,000 commissions.
