What is the difference between ready cash and hard cash? Everywhere it is written that hard cash is "paper money and coins, not cheques or ↑credit cards" but how does it differ from hard cash.

"Hard cash" and "ready" cash are both idioms meaning these 2 terms must be spoken as such to have the meaning . Hard cash is just coins or banknotes only. Ready cash/money is money that is available now/immediately for something. I don't have ready cash to buy it now , maybe I will have it when I get my pay .Then I will likely pay for it in hard cash to get the discount.
