How do you go into a negotiation?

How do you start the negotiate process with companies? I have an offer from B but it's way below company A, but I know company A can pay a bit more and I also know that I have a ton of opportunities that haven't played out. Can I say something like, I'm incredibly interested in company A and although I have an offer and a few processes in the background I truly believe after speaking to some of the desk that A would be the best place for me. if you are able to offer $X more, I'd be able to sign immediately and withdraw my candidacy from any other processes I am a part of. Not really sure how to do this.

also If they ask for an offer letter I don't see how this would benefit my negotiation stance at all unless it's higher and even then I just shared confidential information.

Seem like A is better then? Also why not let the opportunities play out?

> if you are able to offer $X more

Say if you have some other offers and you're wondering if you can do any better. They'll probably say no or give you a nominal amount more
