Hi, there

If I want to pay for something, should I say "make a payment" "do a payment" or "accomplish a payment"? Is it correct to use the last one?

Thank you

    Please give us the complete sentence, Gabriel, and tell us what you are trying to say. Are you paying in full for the item, or are you only paying part of the amount?

    "Accomplish" doesn't work at all. "Do the payment" and "make the payment" are awkward at best. We'd be more likely to say (if we happened to be staying in a hotel that allowed such a thing) "I'll pay when I check out."
