People confuse the cash discount program with a surcharging program. The cash discount program is NOT a surcharge program, and it is available in all States.
The Cash Discount Program is a way for you as a merchant to offset some or all of your current merchant service fees without increasing your overall rates. It is a method of implementing an increase in price to all customers, while giving a discount to those who pay with cash. Those customers who pay with cash avoid some or if not all (owners discretion) of the price increase. Our technology allows this to happen and keeps you within the guidelines of Visa, Mastercard, and processor regulations.
However, this is not intended as legal advice, and we encourage you to consult with your own legal counsel about these issues.
