Benefits of a Cash Discount Program
WHAT IS IT? A cash discount program is a type of credit card processing program that passes the cost of acceptance back to customers who choose to pay with a credit card or debit card. Instead of the business paying for the cost to accept payments, the customer is given a choice to pay with cash and save or incur the cost of acceptance themselves.
