    I assume you are writing a longer email explaining why you want/deserve a better quote/price?

    If so, you could end it:

    I would (therefore) be grateful if you could send me a revised quotation offering your best reduced price.

    Hello,

    Asking for a lower price is truly an art form, and the text would vary regionally and with each person.
    I think Chez' suggestion if fantastic.
    Here's another way, a bit more aggressive:

    Your first quotation is somewhat higher than our budget, could you send another quote with your best price?

    And 10,000 variations on the theme.

    I don't think I've seen "best reduced price" – I think "best price" might cover it. No merchant is going to give you a higher price that has already been quoted unless he or she has a sense of humor and doesn't want your business. :)

    Although, as our firms have done business commonly for so long time, and since we are currently enduring certain financial difficulties, we would like to request a discount on our orders.

    Or

    In a review of this, we would like to ask you for an additional 5% discount. With a better discount we are sure that we can increase our business volume even more – and that, we believe, is something beneficial to both of us.
    We hope to hear from you soon regarding this proposal.

    Or

    “Could this pricing plan work better for us?
