    Hi, I am now trying to translate an English receipt form into Russian.
    But I stumbled on 'unit price,' or 'price per unit.'
    I found,
    цена за единицу, but not sure if this works. Thanks in advance!

    Hello and welcome to the Russian forum.

    I think it must be "цена за штуку" in Russian. Literally it means price per item.

    Hi, thanks for your quick response.

    Your suggestion seems to have more hits on google than my 'цена за единицу',
    I guess it must be a better match for the English.

    Thanks a lot!

    "Цена за единицу продукции", or just "цена за единицу"; in writing, it is usually abbreviated to "цена за ед.".

    (Also note: цена за штуку = price per piece)

    Moscow, Russia
    People in the streets would say "цена за штуку".
    In the context of official legal text I would say that "цена за единицу продукции".
    In the context of accounting forms a simple word "цена" is often used to refer to the price of one unit, the word "сумма" is used to refer to the multiple of the price and the number of units, and the word "итого" is used to refer to the total sum of prices of all goods.

    Try googling for the following words and see the images.

    "Цена за единицу" is a bookkeeping term used in the accounting documents like those linked by igusarov. But единица there presumes a measurement unit, i.e. it can refer to the price for a piece (за штуку), tonne (за тонну), cubic meter (за кубометр), for a wagon (за вагон) and so on and so forth.
    So цена за единицу is the most universal variant.

    Thanks for giving multiple examples!

    All seem to be good, esp. the abbreviation.

    I have been trying to find samples such as those you have shown but could not find suitable ones.

    Appreciate your help.
