    "from the" or "via"

    Hi,

    I have a discussion with my collegues:

    1.
    For reorders or reorders from the "Online Service Center" and Webshop, press 2.

    2.
    For reorders or reorders via the "Online Service Center" and Webshop, the 2 key.

    Is it "from the" or "via" ?

    Thx!

    Via (from the Latin, meaning "by way of") is usually used to indicate in intermediate step, as in "going from A to B, via C"

    I would choose the first one, as that is the direct source.

    Could I reorder something over the Internet?

    Don't see why not. Sounds ok to me.

    I think you mean "orders" or "reorders."
