たかが感想文とはいえ、ほどほどにリアルな文体と内容が好評で、今では俺の量産する感想文は現在1部2万で取引されている。

speaker talking about his trivial job of writing feedback for literature aimed at elementary schoolers, how many is 1部2万 exactly?

5

This 1部2万で means 1部につき2万円で or "for 20,000 yen per article". (Replace "yen" with an appropriate currency unit if this is not a story in Japan.) 部 is a counter for articles, documents, booklets, etc.

In general, this is a pattern to express "X per Y".

  • 1日1回 once a day
  • 1時間9本 9 trains per hour
  • 1人5分 5 minutes per person (e.g. a contestant)
  • 1枚15秒で in 15 seconds per sheet
