Oh, yes, please, there

At a post office

Post master: Let’s weigh your package and see how much the postage comes to. Ah, exactly two dollars.

Man: OK. Only two little stamps for 2 dollars?

Post master: Well, you can buy 200 1-cent stamps, if you like.

Man: Oh, yes, please, there.

He puts the money on the counter and says “There”. Meaning, “There is the money for the stamps.”

It may also be said:
There ya go.
Here’s the money.

I think it can also mean: Oh! Yes, please, as you like. (To be in comfortable accord with him)
