More information:
When receiving a cash payment with Zettle, you get cash from the customer and choose the option “cash payment” when you make the transaction. 

When you accept a cash payment and process it via Zettle you don't pay any fees, but remember that no money will be deposited to your bank account as no money is transferred between accounts in our system.

To record your sales paid in cash, the cash payments option must be enabled in the Payment Settings menu of the Zettle Go app. To enable cash payments, open the Zettle Go app menu > go to Payment Settings > and switch on cash payments. You will then have the option to select cash as a payment method when making a sale (as show in Step 2 above).
