Should I use ''price'' in the sentences below for it to be more formal?

They will sell the bottles for twice as much price as the negotiated price.

They will sell the bottles for twice as much as the negotiated price.

Price is not the correct term to use here. A price is an exact amount, you cannot have more price or less price. However, you can use "money" or "cost" in this way.

They will sell the bottles for twice as much money as the negotiated price.

They will sell the bottle for twice as much cost to them than the negotiated price.

(Note that I had to use "cost to them", otherwise the meaning could ambiguously be misunderstood as "cost to us", and with this change I had to use "than" instead of "as".)

Now, while you can't have "more" or "less" price, a price can be "higher" or "lower". So, we could also use this form:

They will sell the bottle for twice as high a price than as negotiated.

  • Or you could even just leave out any noun at all: They will sell the bottle for twice the negotiated price.
