    Re: I have to make an order

    Do you remember how to phrase a question? Remember that questions don't normally begin with a question word followed by an infinitive.

    You wrote "I want to make an order or place an order." I added the period which a declarative sentence requires at the end. Since you surrounded the whole phrase in quotation marks, you're indicating that you're asking about that entire sentence, which I don't think you intended.

    If you meant to ask whether "I want to make an order" or "I want to place an order" is better, the answer is that either one is fine. They both mean the same thing.
