Achieve zero-fee processing with
PPS’ Cash Discount Program
Progressive Payment Solutions can help your business save more money from each credit card transaction with a simple, easy method.
Companies we have worked with
Credit card fees can equate up to a 5% loss from each transaction for your business, wreaking havoc on your bottom line.
Our Cash Discount Program automatically adjusts your customers total, offering them a discount depending on how your customers pay.
How the Cash Discount Program works:
We’ve refined our automatic system to make it as simple and effective as possible:
- If your customer pays in cash, then the posted rate they see is the rate they pay.
- If your customer pays with a credit card, then a small fee is added to their total.
Example: You are selling a product with a price tag of $100.
- If they pay in cash, it would be $100 total for your customer.
- If they pay with a credit card, you will enter $100 and process the transaction normally. The PPS terminal or gateway will automatically add 3.99% to the transaction.
The receipt will show an extra line item below the invoice total of $100 that says non-cash charge (NCC) of $3.99. The total will be $103.99 for your customer.

Frequently Asked Questions
At this point in the transaction, the overwhelming majority of customers are already committed to the purchase. Of those few who do complain, they always have the option to pay by cash or check. This system is becoming more standard as the cost of accepting credit cards continues to go up, so many customers have already become accustomed to it.
The Durbin Amendment 2 (part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law) gives the final verdict on cash discount programs. This states that businesses are permitted to offer a discount to customers as an incentive and to encourage customers to pay by alternative methods other than credit/debit cards. Such alternative methods include checks or cash in order to receive a discount, which is applied at the time of sale.
Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express forbid any business from surcharging without taking the necessary steps to get approved — which is an exceedingly-difficult process for a business to implement on their own.
Our Cash Discount Program allows you to offer a discount for cash, which will be automated by our equipment to make sure it is done properly. Rather than illegally profiting off of a credit card transaction (which could happen if you end up charging a client more than you are charged by your processor to accept the transaction), the Cash Discount Program lets you rest easy knowing your payment system is fully on the side of the law.
The amount you will save by using the cash discount program usually covers any cancellation fee in just one month. So you’re actually missing out on savings by not using the Cash Discount Program, even if you’re still under contract.
We can customize the Cash Discount Program to fit your needs. So we can work with you on a case-by-case basis to split the processing fee with your clients if you feel the need to do so.
