Right now, according to the information on the wiki, it doesn't actually do much. Haggle, Handle, Gardening, and Farming are all "dead" skills at this time, that will probably only become useful later when the builders manage to catch up and make crafts for them.

Haggle may allow use of the "barter" command, but I'm not sure how/how well/if that command is actually useful.

Tangentially related: is the 'decorate' command usable in-game?

As far as I know, the code is still there, but the items needed for decoration aren't currently available in-game. But someone else may know more.

In the past barter was like this:

Barter shopkeep 3

3. A set of pearl handled knives. 450cp

A big shopkeeper whispers you in haradaic;
"Well. I guess I can let you have it for 425cp."

It was something along those lines. The better the skill the better you were at it.

The shopkeepers currently aren't flagged to allow you to barter with them, or at least all the ones I've tried. Regret, regret, my choice of the barter skill!

I've Haggled at least one of the Utterby shopkeepers into submission, so the skill does work I assure you.

These folks just might have hearts of stone for whatever sob story you've got about why you want those pants for less.
