Certainly. And what's wrong with that? You say it as though it were a
Bad Thing. But keeping the price low sounds to me like a perfectly
normal, reasonable, and accepted - expected, even - thing for a buyer
to do.

You clearly either disagree or see something wrong with that particular
*way* of keeping the price low, but unless it's the former I don't see
what you wrote as any real explanation.
