    Default A como son

    I know this means "how much" and appears to be the favorite of Dominicans when it comes to asking about the price of something but have a couple of questions.

    1. Can "A como es" be used as well?

    2. What would be the second most common phrase for asking the price - "cuanto es" maybe?

    Thanks

    A curt Cuanto? es enough. Once you obtain a price, then you say (also curtly) Acotéjame el precio, que voy a pagar al contado y no necesito una factura!

    "¿A cómo es?" can be used as well (singular):
    ¿A cómo es la libra? (el quintal, la docena, etc.)

    Other expressions:
    ¿Cuánto cuesta/n)?
    ¿A cómo (cuánto) están los huevos?
    ¿Cuál es el precio?
    ¿Cuánto pide por esto?
    ¿Qué vale (la libra, la docena, esto?
    ¿Cuánto vale/n?
