In recent years, many businesses have enrolled in a cash discount program. These programs previously were not allowed, but now are allowed under the terms of the Dodd-Frank Act. Such programs enable businesses to offer customers a cash discount to encourage them to use this form of payment. These programs can save businesses a significant amount of money on processing fees.

Saving Money on Processing Fees
Processing fees are a major expense for businesses in nearly all industries. Processing fees can easily run into thousands of dollars a month for businesses with high transaction volume. A cash discount plan allows a business to continue to accept credit cards, it merely encourages customers to pay with cash. The reduced amount of credit card transactions translates to reduced processing fees. How much a business can save depends on the cash discount plan and on the business’s revenue.
Offering a Cash Discount Program is Totally Legal
Offering a cash discount plan is now legal and allowed by all major credit card providers. As long as customers pay a set service fee across all transactions, the cash discount plan is within the rules. Customers who pay cash simply receive a discount equivalent to the amount of the service fee. This same discount also applies to customers who pay with checks (if the business accepts checks). Many cash discount plans also offer customers a discount equivalent to the service fee if they pay with an in-store gift card.
