Paying for goods and services at the time of purchase. This notion is becoming increasingly rare in the age of the credit card, with commercial exhortations to Buy now and pay later (which may become a cliché). The term arose in the first half of the nineteenth century and made it into H. G. Bohn’s Handbook of Proverbs (1855): “Pay as you go and keep from small score.”
