"If the shopkeeper offers you a credit note to be used to buy goods in the same shops but you would rather have the money, say so."
(Note, a shopkeeper is very unlikely to do this. Giving you an equal amount of money is simply turning a done deal into a lost sale.")

The other bits don't make sense. And what are the '=' for?

I think this is the question:
Which of these meanings applies:
• '...but you would prefer to have equal money than to take the note...'
• '...but you would prefer money if possible'
?

This doesn't make sense though. They both seem to mean the same! The red highlighting also seems strange; 'money' and 'say' don't belong together: {if you would prefer money}{say so}.

I'm not sure what your question is. All you've done is ask for comments. I'll assume you want to know what it means.

The shopkeeper owes the person some goods to a certain value. He offers to allow the person to purchase those goods from any of his stores using a credit note. However, if you would rather have your money back (if you rather him give you \$10 cash rather than a \$10 note of credit), you should ask for cash rather than for the credit note.

:up: 'Say so' means 'say that you'd rather have the money'.
