A sum certain is a predetermined, fixed price described in the terms of a contract or other negotiable instrument. A sum certain may be favored by parties who wish to avoid any ambiguity about how much money should be paid for the performance of a contractual obligation. A sum certain helps to prevent any conflicts about the calculation of payment.
