    cash-out

    Hi, Is my sentence correct?
    Sometimes costumers need to cash the large money out.
    Cheers.

    No, it's not. It's not clear what you mean.
    Something about customers (not costumers), probably.


    Can you try to say it another way?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Are you talking about a bank customer needing to withdraw a large amount of cash?

    Re: cash-out

    I'm wondering now if it's about needing to get change for large-denomination bills.

    But really - I have no idea.

    I am talking about a supermarket customer,
    How can we use the verb cash out/ back in this situation?

    You need to give us more, backspace.

    Please explain the situation. You are making us guess.

    As a verb, "cash out" means to convert some financial instrument (annuity, insurance policy. 401K, etc.) into cash. That will not work with a supermarket. "Cash back" is not a verb.

    Re: cash-out

    In the UK at least, when you pay by debit card at a supermarket, you're asked if you want any cash back. It's a way of drawing up to 50 in cash out of your account without going the bank or ATM.

    The transaction also benefits the supermarket by reducing the amount of cash they have to handle.
