Will the firm accept to work with us with payment option of one week?

Would the word “option” good in this sentence? Or shluld I use different word like “term”in this sentence?

  • "Will the firm agree to ..." If you use the word option that implies there is a choice of other payment terms. So yes, use term. Or rephrase the sentence: "Will the firm accept our terms for payment in one week?" Feb 21, 2020 at 14:24
  • I think accept to [verb] is a non-standard usage (but agree to [verb] is fine). We normally accept [noun], so you should have a "nouny / gerundy" complement: Will they accept working with us...? Feb 21, 2020 at 17:11

I think term might be better since the word 'option' is more associated with multiple options rather than a singular one.

Other than that, I would also change some of the other words too:

Will the firm agree to work with us with a payment term of one week?
