a (something) charge

A "charge" is money that you have to pay for something. It's different than a "price", which is the amount that you pay when buying something. A "charge" is more often for a service, or a penalty that's added into a bill.

Some examples of different names of charges include:

a storage charge

a fuel charge

administration charge

In most cases, "fee" can also be used instead of "charge".
