Please if you would allow three (3) business days for a reply back I will be forwarding this information over to my manager to review?

  • "would allow three days" is all part of the same clause, so you should not use a comma there. However, you can use a comma after please, and should also use a comma after back. As it was mentioned in an answer, the sentence is not grammatically correct. "If you would please allow three business days for a reply, I would be forwarding this information over to my manager for review." is better.

  • Better yet might be to break it up into two sentences: "Would you allow three business days for a reply? If so, I will forward this information over to my manager for review."

I added two commas:

Please, if you would allow three (3) business days for a reply back, I will be forwarding this information over to my manager to review?

You can put commas before and after a phrase. The part of your sentence that says, "if you would allow three (3) business days for a reply back" is a phrase.

Unfortunately there are many structural issues with this sentence/question, so where the comma goes is not really relevant. I would structure the sentence as follows:

"I will forward this information to my manager for his (her?) review, and will reply to you in three business days."

    Your suggestion doesn't take into account that the other party may or may not allow those extra days, or that the OP is asking for those extra days.
