Hi Wash Nion

You could also use 'let' but no with the word 'to'.
If you use the word 'allow', then the word 'to' is necessary:

- let me pay later
- allow me to pay later

Note to admin:
There is a typo in the sentence. The pronoun seems to have been deleted after the word if.

permit me pay later - wrong
