    Make / the quality

    Please advise which one is correct.

    Please find attched pro-forma invoice and make the payment.
    Should it be ''make the payment'', "make a payment" or "make payment"?


    Please advise the quantity you are looking for.
    Please advise what is the quality you are looking for.
    Please advise what quality you need or do you need.

    In above sentences, I am trying to ask my customer for quantity of the product (which) he needs.

    If you've already mentioned (talked about) "advanced payment", then use "the"; otherwise, use "an."

    Note the quotation marks Teechar added. They are required to mark words you're talking about but which aren't themselves part of a sentence.
    I am not a teacher.

    "Please advise the quantity you need."
    "Please advise the quantity you require so that we can send you a competitive price."

    "Please advise the require quantity ....."

    If asked products are more than one, can I write "the quantities"?

    Re: Make / the quantity

    'Please let us know what quantity is needed.'

    'Please tell us what quantities you require.'

    Then my complete sentence will be " please let us know what quatity you require so that we can send you a competitive quote".

    Is that correct?

    I have marked the errors in red. Can you see what's wrong?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, there were spacing and spelling mistakes in my sentence.
