¡Tenga el cambio! -translation?

I thought "¡Tenga el cambio!" would mean "have the change", not "here's the change". Can it mean both?

Hola Gail, If ¡Tenga el cambio! was translated literally it would mean "Have the change", but the most accurate phrase in English for this expression is "Here is your change", so we need to translate it into that. I hope it helped.
