    cashier

    hi,

    is the person in ANY place, that receives the payment for a service or a purchase always the "cashier"?

    is it a term more used for banks?

    do i pay the hotel at the cashier?

    do i pay the movie tickets at the cashier?

    do i pay the things i buy at a grocery at the cashier?

    do i pay a purchase at BestBuy at the cashier?

    thanks!

    Re: cashier

    Usually the person who accepts your payment and gives you a receipt in return is the cashier. In hotels, supermarkets, department stores, Best Buys, and similar stores, the person who collects your money is called a "cashier." At a movie theater, there are usually "box office cashiers" who sell tickets, and "concession stand cashiers" who sell popcorn and refreshments. In the US, folks that handle cash at banks are called "tellers," not "cashiers."

    You call the person a cashier when they operate a cash register.

    All of the above workers with the exception of those in a bank accept money from you and place it in a cash register, giving you a receipt for your purchase. They are called cashiers. Sometimes in a department store for example you will see them called "customer service agents" which is a fancy name for cashier.

    In a bank you give your money to a bank teller.
