Get to know Clearent’s Cash Discount Program.

Did you know that as part of the Durbin Amendment, it is now legal for businesses to offer a discount to customers who pay by cash or check, instead of with a credit or debit card?

Inside our Cash Discount Program

Legally Share Processing Fees with Customers

Thanks to the Durbin amendment of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law, business owners have a completely legal way to pass on all or a percentage of their processing costs to their customers.

Cash Discounts are Not Surcharges

A cash discount is when a business owner offers a discount to a customer who pays by cash or check. A surcharge is when the business adds an additional fee to purchases made with a credit card. Surcharges are prohibited on debit card transactions and also have other stipulations.

Customize the Amount you Charge

Get the freedom to choose which fee structure works best for your business and your average ticket size. You can charge a flat fee or a percentage.

Clearly List All Service Charges and Discounts on Your Receipts

At Clearent, we take an honest approach to pricing, and our Cash Discount Program helps you do the same with your customers by clearly listing your service fee/charge and cash discount on customer receipts.

Get Free Signage

In order to properly implement a Cash Discount Program, you are required to post signage at the entrance of your business and at the register. We make notifying your customers easy thanks to our free customizable signage.
