CASH DISCOUNT FAQS

 

Q. How does ZERO FEES work?

With new terminal programming your customers receipt will automatically calculate and show a different cost for cash or credit based on the method of payment. When your customer purchases a $25.00 item you receive $25.00 in your bank account.  The customers receipt will show the $25.00 purchase plus a $1.00 card usage fee and the sales will be for $26.00  If the customer uses cash your receipt will show $25.00 its that simple. 


 

Q. Will my customers be upset with this fee and go elsewhere? Won’t I lose business?

Not according to other business owners’ experiences. Offering a cash discount is viewed as a net positive to customers shopping with you.  Customers do not carry a lot of cash with them, those that do may want to take advantage of the saving and feel good about getting the discount by using cash and want to shop with you again, because of this.  However, the use of cash is on the  decline, the hassle of going to an ATM and paying those fees (sometimes north of 5%) and the risk of caring cash make it safer and more cost effective for your customers to use their cards when paying and everyone knows cash comes with a cost of use as well.


 

Q. Is this program legal?

Yes, cash discounting is legal in all 50 states. The Dodd-Frank act prohibits payment card networks “from inhibiting the ability of anyone to provide a discount for payment by cash, checks, debit cards, or credit cards.”


 

Q. I’ve never heard of a Cash Discount Program before, is it new?

No, businesses have been offering discounts for those who pay with cash for years. In the United States, a lower posted price for cash is very common at gas and service stations across the country.


 

Q. Is this like a surcharge?

No, offering a discount to customers who choose to pay with cash is a completely different situation than surcharging when it comes to the card brands’ regulations. While surcharging is allowed under certain parameters laid out by the card associations, business owners are able to price their products and offer discounts on those products at will. Cash discounting is the business owner exercising that freedom. Surcharging is adding a charge only for customers who use a credit card, and is not currently allowed in ten states.


 

Q. Will this program completely eliminate my monthly processing bill?

Almost. Some merchants will still see some small fees on their bills due to the variations in Interchange prices, but most will see a drastic (95-100%) reduction in their processing bill. The Payment Portal will set up your bill on a daily discount structure, meaning we will take your fees out every day instead of a lump sum at the end of the month. Your monthly statement will show a near-zero cost of processing with the money for the goods and services you sold showing up in your deposit. You will also have a monthly fee to upgrade your terminal to the new software and programming just for this product.  The terminal fee is just a fraction of what your monthly total fees are prior to changing over to this program. This is a wonderful program for those merchants that are tired of paying monthly fees associated to processing credit cards.
