Hi teachers,

I have so many doubts when talking about prices.Please check my attempts and help me.

"The price is not fixed"
(I mean that the price can change)

"The price is negotiable"
(I mean that the price can be agreed with the customer)

"The price is not definitive\final"
(I mean that the price can change)

Are possible these way of saying?

Could I then continue the sentence like that: " .................. depending on the contracts that will be signed, we might give a better price"

Thank you

Pamela

It's more businesslike to say:
... depending on the terms of the contracts that will be signed, we might be able to offer you a better price"
Hi,

thank you very much.

"Terms of contracts" ? Really? I mean the quantity of contracts.... Did you really mean this?

Thanks

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The terms of a contract are things like the length of time it is valid, the quantity of goods being ordered, the time for delivery, guarantees, etc.

The price of goods sold often depends on the terms of the contract that the buyer signs with the seller.
Thank you for the reply. Now I understand that It is not "terms of contract" that I was needing. I wanted to say that depending on the number (quantity) of customers (so contracts) I will be able to offer a better price.

Then why not simply say "depending on the number of contracts that will be signed..."? I think it's clear enough.

This would be very natural to me. Often I look for more difficult way of say things..Emotion: sad

Thanks!
