    Default Good sales!

    Hello there!

    I've got a friend who works in a commercial department. Is it ok, at the end of the conversatoin, to wish him good sales? If it's not, could you please tell me what would be proper in this context?

    Cheers,
    Tito

    "Good luck with your sales" would be more common.

    Note that when we us the two-letter version of "okay", we capitalise it - it's "OK".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    It's not a standard version, but the meaning is clear in the context so it could work between you and your friend. Mike's version is a more common one.

    I know that I'm just supposed to mark 'Like' if I'm grateful for some answer. But I really liked yours, so.. Thank you very much!

    Have a nice week,

    We understand your desire to thank Tdol, TitoBr, but it means that people will come into the thread expecting something new and find just your thanks. Honestly, a 'like' is sufficient - and it saves wasting other people's time.
