    1. Can I pay US dollars here?
    2. Can I pay in US dollars here?

    Re: pay, pay in, or pay with

    I'd say either "in" or "with" with a preference for "with."
    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.

    Re: pay, pay in, or pay with

    I am more used to hearing:

    pay with cash or credit card
    pay in USD/British pound/Euro

    not a teacher
