What is a Cash Discount Program?

A cash discount program works by providing your customers with a cash and credit price. If the customer pays by cash, they receive a lower price. If they pay by credit card they pay a slightly higher price, which includes your cost of processing. Customers that pay with cash essentially receive a discount because they will receive a lower cash price.

The end result? You eliminate your business’ credit card processing fees and encourage your customers to use cash, while still providing them with the option to pay by credit.

With a cash discount program you are only paying for monthly services fee while processing fees are eliminated

Much like how gas stations have been doing the past 15 years, customers have the option to pay a little extra (3.99%) for the convenience to us their card or receive a cash discount when paying with cash. Whatever type of business, however you process cards, it will always be $35/month. That’s it!

Is the cash discount program the same as surcharging?

No, the cash discount program is not the same as surcharging. They seem extremely similar which can make it confusing for merchants. Here’s the difference between the cash discount program and surcharging:

Surcharging

A surcharge program is a type of credit card processing where you charge the consumer an additional fee or surcharge on top of the cost of goods to cover the merchant processing cost.

Also surcharging is not legal in all states in US while cash discount is. Both systems are used by the merchants to recoup the merchant services fees that are charged with each transaction.

Difference is that while surchaging program adds a percentage on each item that customer pays by card, true cash discount program is providing a discount for cash payments.”
