Cash Discount Pricing

The Cash Discount Program

Cash Discount Pricing allows an incentive that a merchant offers to their customers to pay with cash. Similar to Gas Stations, the options you pay for gas. The Cash Discount Program allows Merchants to pass along their credit card processing costs to their customers for the convenience of using a credit or debt card. This effectively eliminates a merchant’s credit card expense except for a small maintenance fee.

Currently available in US only.

Cash Discount Example


  • A customer purchase’s an item for $20 and decides to use cash. 
  • You do nothing and accept the cash like normal.
  • Now if the customer decides they want to use a credit card for a $20 purchase.
  • At the time of sale you would swipe their card and the credit card terminal would add an additional 4%  (you can choose to higher that up to 4% if you wish) to the total which would be $20.88.  
  • Fees are collected daily to completely offset all your processing costs. 
  • Do not refer Cash Discounting to a “Surcharge” to customers.  While this is effectively the same thing, surcharging is still considered illegal in several states.  Cash Discounting Pricing is not illegal in ANY state.  The merchant is effectively charging 4% less if their customers pay with cash instead of using a credit card.
  • If the merchant want to charge something other than 4%, this information needs to be forwarded so the right amount needs to be collected from the merchant to fully offset what they are charging their customers.
  • Do you want more cash payments? – A cash discount will lead to more cash purchases which are a good thing if you want to reduce the impact of processing fees. However, one thing to keep in mind is that customers that use credit cards tend to spend more money. And that’s it!

What Merchant would like this?

This is NOT for all merchants.  Some might worry about angering or driving customers away.  Cash Discount Pricing tends to be most appealing to small ticket merchants, whose customers would incur a relatively small charge for using the cash or paying Cash.
