Our cash discounting and surcharging programs are a simple way for merchants to offset credit card processing fees – resulting in real profits!

We Have Options to Fit All Your Needs

Our program was built with flexibility in mind – offering four ways for merchants to share credit card processing fees with customers.

Cash Discount with Dual Pricing

A Cash Discount is when businesses offer a discount from listed price to customers who pay by cash, check or store-branded gift card, instead of with a credit or debit card. Dual pricing is when both list and cash prices for items are shown.


Surcharges are fees that are added to the cost of the purchase for the convenience of using a credit card. Businesses must follow additional steps to be in compliance with card brand regulations.

Convenience Fees

Convenience Fees are charged for the convenience of payment through an alternative payment channel.

Service Fees

Service Fees are added by merchants in specific government and education merchant category codes (MCCs).
