In Zakynthos, it is possible to bargain with the sellers for the thing you like in shops where there are no cash registers. Note that here, unlike many Asian countries, the key to the successful trading is not arrogance, but sincerity and friendly disposition. Smile to the seller, make a compliment to him, his store and the whole country. Remind himself about the similarity in religious views or historical paths. In a word, ingratiate yourself. It's really quite common here when the seller is ready to drink a little ouzo with a completely unfamiliar customer and talk "heart to heart." Do not directly show interest in the product, but don’t criticize it either. If the seller does not reduce the price any way, then try to leave. If the seller is ready to give in, he will stop you.
The Greeks in general appreciate honesty and expect an honest attitude from the tourists. That is why here it is quite possible to agree upon delivery of the thing you like to the hotel, because you just don’t have enough cash with you right now. The deposit is not needed, and payment is made directly on the spot. Remember that although in general the locals do not strive to profit from the travelers by any means, you can’t say the same about the migrants from neighboring countries, who are living in Zakynthos.
