    Re: single price

    Single price could be used where different goods are sold for the same price, like those everything's a pound/euro/dollar shops. It could also be used to distinguish a single item from a batch, but I haven't seen it used for unit price.

    Re: single price

    I "x" is the price for each fixture, I would use "unit price".
