I've referred Is there any difference between “monthly average” and “average per month”?

But I want more clearer answer most difference of it.

  • Per Month - I've to pay $100 per month as wages.
  • Monthly - I've to pay $100 monthly as wages.

My understanding:
- Per Month - I've to pay on each month.
- Monthly - I've to pay once in a month.

Seems no much difference but which once is preferable in that context?

    In these sentences I would say "I have to pay", not "I've to pay". Yes, I've is an abbreviation of I have, but it doesn't sound right when used before to. "I've got to pay" sounds fine though. – nnnnnn Nov 26 '19 at 9:24

Both indicate a recurring period.

The phrase “per month” can be used to apply intervals within a period, i.e. twice per month.

While “monthly”, denotes a specific period. You may say “twice monthly”, but you may prefer to say, “biweekly”.

In the OP context I would recommend “$100 per month”.

    Thanks, I understand when to use, it must fit into that context. It'd be odd while I'd say It would affect my per month budget – Swapnil Nov 26 '19 at 9:17
