Explanation: it seems that he's haggling for a better price. otherwise he would say 'a good discount, I'll take it'. this 'short English' is usually used by people living in Hong Kong, and also Singapore. they usually say 'can' instead of 'yes, I can'.I think this also applies here (in this sentece). The complete sentence would be 'give me a better discount, and I'll take it'.
Explanation: that he already has a better discount, since he is saying 'give me it, I'll buy it at the price you're offering' (I'll take it)
What he doesn't say is 'thank you for giving me', or 'yes, that's a...' (a better discount)
Good luck ... :o)

Explanation: But if this is the only information you have, I would say it means "This is a better discount. I accept the offer." Another possibility would be "If you offer me a better discount, I'll accept."
