"Pay by Cash" Vs "Pay in Cash"

Postby Brahman » Mon Feb 11, 2013 7:07 am

Is it true that "paying by cash" is now acceptable? Someone has explained that when the verb "pay/paying" does not have any complements, i.e., the person to whom we paying, or what we are paying for, it fine to say "paying by cash".

Is this true?

"In" is standard.
