How to bring up starting pay to an employer?

today i applied for a part time sales associate job at a hardware store, which i heard was hiring through craigslist. On craigslist where it said compensation he put (Will pay up to $10/hour or more depending on qualifications and availability). Today when i applied under the desired salary i wrote $8-10.... I am pretty confident that i will get hired and if i do.. How will i bring up starting pay to the manager??? I am a college student.
