Swearing as a Measure to Persuade Customer to Undertake

question| Is it permissible to swear in conducting a commercial transaction?
answer| Swearing is either objectionable or impermissible: If one is being honest, it would be canonically objectionable, but if one is lying, it would be impermissible.

That is, swearing by God or a holy person or object as a way to emphasize or reinforce the veracity of one’s claim.
