How to use "Pay up" in context?

What do you do when you owe money and you can't pay it off? You might try to get a loan, or somehow work out a payment plan. But if you're really cash-strapped, there's another option: declaring bankruptcy.

Declaring bankruptcy may seem like the last resort, but it can be a really useful way to get out of debt. In most cases, declaring bankruptcy will lower your credit score and make it more difficult for you to get credit in the future. But it's still possible to get back on your feet and rebuild your credit rating.
