    Default very thanks/thank you

    Hi everyone,
    Can we say "very thanks!" instead of thank you?

    Thank you for your replies. (or should I say "very thanks!"

    You can say "Thank you very much" or "Thanks a lot" (this last one is informal).

    I believe "Many thanks" is also possible as an informal variation.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    I would say " lots of thanks" or " thanks a lot" instead.

    "Lots of thanks" is not natural English.
