charge for opening / to open

< Previous | Next >


Spanish, Peru
Hi all!
I always have trouble when deciding whether I should use an infinitive form or the "for +ing form". For example, is it
How much do you charge to open an account?
how much do you charge for opening an account?

I think the first one is correct, however, I also know that "how much do you charge for this jacket" would be correct. If someone explained to me this kind of obscure point of grammar (at least for me), that would be great!!!!!

thanks in advance!

    I was going to answer...but my explanation for both were exactly the same.

    We just don't say "for open" and we don't say "to opening".
