    Re: to your pleasure?

    Do you mean 'to your satisfaction' by 'to your pleasure'?

    Not a teacher.

    Re: to your pleasure?

    '...to your pleasure' is unnatural.

    '...to your satisfaction' would be better.

    Re: to your pleasure?

    Yes, that's what it was meant to say. So, I assume the answer would be a "no".

    That's right. Pleasure means enjoyment. If the order is for something fun (a game, for instance) you could say for your pleasure, not to your pleasure.

    Re: to your pleasure?

    An alternative to 'satisfaction' is 'liking'. (In fact, now I think of it, the word 'liking' exists chiefly [only?] in the collocation 'to X's liking'.)

    There's also 'to your taste'.
