Get to know Clearent’s Empower Program.

Imagine having more money in your pocket at the end of each month. More money to help your business thrive while being fully compliant with the card brands.

Clearent’s Empower Program combines the best elements of Cash Discounting and Surcharging so you can legally share your credit card processing costs with your customers. Empower your profits by picking the pricing structure that works best for your business and your customers.

With Cash Discounting, customers who pay with cash or store-branded gift cards receive a discount. Customers who prefer to pay with a credit or debit card will see a non-cash discount adjustment on their receipt. Surcharging is similar in that your customers help cover credit card processing fees, but it’s only allowed on credit card transactions and is prohibited in six states (Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts and Oklahoma).


Our promise to you

  • Transparent pricing
  • No hidden fees
