You can say that but it's not right here because it is ALL money and in this sentence you need to indicate CASH in contrast to cheque or credit card.

Hi Elle,
Cash means money in the form of bills or coins. If you pay cash you definitely use bills or coins (not credit cards, cheques or other means of payment).

Money is the general word for the coins or notes which are used to buy things, or the amount of these that one person has in the form of credit cards, cheques, etc.

Hope this helps.
Daniela
