Why can't you say "Quiero pagar en dólares, por favor."

Good question, Jannath! I've missed this same translation TWICE! I guess I'm just getting too old to remember stuff.

I entered "I want to pay in dollars, please" at SpanishDict.com; the translation it gave was "Quiero pagar en dólares, por favor." Then I entered "I want to pay with dollars, please" and received the translation proffered at the top of this discussion as correct.

I believe that "Quiero pagar en dólares, por favor" is correct. Anyone agree?

The "yo" is redundant and often dropped. It's better to get in the habit of forming the sentence the way the language is actually used.

I absolutely agree. En dolares is the correct solution after asking native Spanish speakers.
