    She said she would be paying with/by/in cash.

    She said she would be paying with/by/in cash.

    Which bold word should I use? I think the word needed is with.

    Thanks.

    Re: She said she would be paying with/by/in cash.

    Both "with" and "in" work in BrE.

    I paid in cash.
    I paid with cash.
    I paid by credit card.
    I paid with a credit card.
    I paid for it on a credit card.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I agree. I'd say "in" is more common, though.
