I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'given cash' is the definition.
'tipped' can be an answer for 'given' (tipping is a kind of giving). I am not certain of the 'cash' bit.

'bound to be very soft hearted' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'soft' could be 'pp' (musical abbreviation for pianissimo) and 'pp' is found within the answer.
'bound' could be 'tied' ('tie' can be a synonym of 'bind') and 'tied' is found within the leftover letters.
No letters remain.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'when' is the link.
