The strategy to doing the cash discount program is eliminating your own processing fees by incentivizing customers to pay with cash. Here's how it works: the business owner would place a sign by the register that says "get a 4% discount by paying with cash", explaining that the posted prices are the "Cash Discounted Prices". When the customer pays with cash, they will be charged the 'regular' price for the products or services. When customers see this, they are less motivated to use a credit card. Who doesn't want to save money??
This program is completely legal and is acceptable to offer a discount to customers for paying cash or charging them the "regular price" at the credit card terminal. If processing costs are built into your prices, it is possible that surcharging will allow you to lower prices across the board. This, in turn, could make your business more competitive, especially if most of your customers pay with cash, check, or debit card.

By assessing a "Cash Discount Fee" to all customers paying with checks, credit or debit cards and posting the appropriate signage, you meet the standards of major card service providers, state and federal laws.
Customers who pay with cash avoid the "Cash Discount Fee" and all others will see a line item added to their receipt. Typically 3.5%-4%.
By implementing our Cash Discount Program, you can offset most, if not all, of your merchant processing fees. The small fee is applied towards your merchant processing bill and offsets most, if not all, of the fees for credit card processing. This produces a “near-zero” credit card processing bill/statement.
