    Do you want any additional things?

    Shop assistant: Do you want any additional thing (singular) ?
    Customer: No, thanks, that's it for now.

    I wonder if the following conversation is correct:

    Shop assistant: Do you want any additional things (plural)?
    Customer: No, thanks, that's all for now.

    Is it correct for us to say " that's all" referring to additional thing or additional charges?

    Thanks.

    A shopkeeper is never going to say that. He might say, "Do you want anything else?"
    Yes, "That's all" is OK as an answer.
