    That's okay with me.

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    in the opinion or judgment of (someone)
    ▪ It's fine with [=by] us if you want to come, too.
    ▪ That's okay with me.

    That's okay with me.
    Do you use to in place of with?

    by, to, with are all possible prepositions to convey the same thing.

    Svartnik,

    I think that "by" is acceptable. Is "to" acceptable, too?

    I think 'to' is used most frequently.

    Who chooses #3 over #1 or #2?
    AE speakers? BE speakers? Non-native speakers?
    1. and 2. are fine, 3. I haven't seen. Although, 'It seems ok to me' is common.

    OK - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online
    it is okay with/by somebody
    I'll pay you the rest tomorrow, if that's OK with you.

    Svartnik seems to be backing off. Hang in there, Svartnik!
