    "I have sent you in the order that I preferred."

    I had sent links of my favorite online stores to my friend.I had sent my most favorite store link first, then my next favorite store link and lastly my least favorite store's link.
    Can I say "I have sent you in the order that I preferred."?
    Does this convey what I meant?
    How should I say?

    Say:

    I sent you my favorite first, then each one was my favorite (of those left).

    Why did you suggest correcting 'store' to 'story'? The OP is referring to online shopping, not online reading.
