Dear Tutor,

I wa wondering whether you could shed light on the following; In the transcript Sammy says: " Can I pay with debit card?" . In my humble opinion, it should be " Pay by debit card." My deepest apologies should I be wrong.

Kindest regards,

José Luis

Hello José Luis,

You could certainly say 'pay by credit card', but 'pay with credit card' is also correct. Both are commonly used.

Please don't apologise! We're happy to help you with your questions.

All the best,

The last time was in a café where i used to go to lunch frequently. Fortunately they trusted me and I payed the nex day.
