For example, some people have offered me price, and I am waiting for last person

so I tell him

Can you offer your price quickly? Because I have some offers on hold, that I have to reply to those people.


You can say "on hold" here, yes.

You can also use "at hand" or any other expression that conveys you have offers lying around that are pending.

Side note: I'd suggest s/that I have to reply to [...]/and I have to reply to [...]/.

  • Handy means useful; at hand means near by. Neither is a synonym for pending. – deadrat Jul 27 '16 at 7:37
  • You wouldn't say "I have some offers handy". – Max Williams Jul 27 '16 at 7:37
