    I would like to deal now

    Is there something wrong with this sentence "I would like to deal now"

    I want to tell the other person that I wish to make payment and close the transaction now. Is "I would like to deal now" appropriate for what I want to say?

    No, it's not appropriate. You could say "I'd like to close the deal now".

    NOT A TEACHER

    I prefer, 'I would like to close the deal now'. When I first read your sentence, I thought it meant dealing cards.

    Re: I would like to deal now

    Isthere a difference between complete the deal vs close the deal?

    Just trying to learn more, are the following appropriate:

    I would like to complete the transaction now

    I would like to complete the deal now.

    The first one is more natural.
