לְשַׁלֵּם
 
The Hebrew word for to pay – לְשַׁלֵּם listen and repeat– comes from the same root as that of the word שָׁלוֹם listen and repeat hello, goodbye and, more famously, peace. The root is שׁ.ל.מ (sh.l.m), and the unifying concept is completion: payment is the completion of a transaction, while peace involves a sense of completion or settlement.

Here’s an example of לשלם in action:
 
אֲנִי רוֹצֶה לְשַׁלֵּם דֶּרֶךְ אֲתַר הָאִינְטֶרְנֶט.
I want to pay through the website.
 
לשלם is an active-intensive verb. Its passive version is often used in commerce, as in:
 
הַסְּכוּם הַמָּלֵא שֻׁלַּם בַּזְּמַן.
The full amount was paid on time.
 
Some related words:
 
תַּשְׁלוּם payment listen and repeat
תַּשְׁלוּמִים – payment installments (plural of תשלום) listen and repeat
לְהַשְׁלִים to complete listen and repeat
מֻשְׁלָם perfect listen and repeat
