    cash or wire transfer as soon as I'm in town. Comma after transfer?

    Could someone spot me first, and I will pay them back in cash or wire transfer as soon as I'm in town.

    Should there be a comma after transfer?

    If you want to emphasize " as soon as I'm in town", meaning the comma is optional.

    I see no reason for a comma there.

    I think the difference can be seen in speech.

    You can't see a comma in speech. You can hear a pause. But I see no reason for a pause there either.
