WHAT DOES UP-SELLING MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Upselling

Upselling is a sales technique whereby a seller induces the customer to purchase more expensive items, upgrades, or other add-ons in an attempt to make a more profitable sale. Upselling usually involves marketing more profitable services or products but can be simply exposing the customer to other options that were perhaps not considered. Upselling implies selling something that is more profitable or otherwise preferable for the seller instead of, or in addition to, the original sale. A different technique is cross-selling in which a seller tries to sell something else. In practice, large businesses usually combine upselling and cross-selling techniques to enhance the value that the client or clients get from the organization in addition to maximizing the business's profit. In doing so, the organization must ensure that the relationship with the client is not disrupted. In restaurants and other similar settings, upselling is commonplace and an accepted form of business. In other businesses, the customer’s perception of the attempted upsell can be viewed negatively and impact the desired result.
