I read multiple places that one of the demon Barbatos's power is to "conciliates friends and rulers" . So I will summon him to make sure this is true . If so I will make a pact with him . But what is a good offering to him ? Please help serious answers only please .

Barbatos does not demand sacrifices, but accepts them as signs of devotion. His cult practices a ritual known as "the Shearing" in which humanoid captives are stripped, shaved naked with rusted shears, and abused in animal pens until they give up all semblance of civilization. Such unfortunates are then sacrificed as mere animals, their souls condemned to Avernus and their entrails used to divine Barbatos's favor. 
Among the monstrous races, Barbatos favors hybrid creatures such as manticores and medusae that live on the border between man and beast.
Good luck with that, I would imagine using modern goetic practices you could sacrifice some kind of pain or mental anguish as an act of devotion. Hunger might be acceptable too.
