It’s no secret, people love paying with credit cards. A recent survey showed that the public favored cards over cash 3:1. It’s convenient, easy and saves pennies jingling in your pockets. Naturally, the acceptance of cards at a retail establishment is great for the consumer, but also means dealing with processing fees, the price of doing business in the modern age. Are you ready to say goodbye to unnecessary credit card fees? Here’s how a Cash Discount Program can help you.
Many smaller businesses are now opting for the “cash discount program” option. The seller offers a discount to those customers paying cash over card, an incentive that can prove very fruitful. The main bonus is that it can reduce credit card processing fees tenfold. If you don’t process the card, you don’t have to pay for the service. It is easier to explain to the customer and is perfectly legal when adhered to correctly.
Of course, the main battle you will always come across in implementing such a program is that for the most part, people don’t carry cash anymore, in a CNBC study in 2017, it was reported that 75% of Americans carry $50 dollars or less on them at any given time, With millennials at the forefront of the plastic revolution. However, with the recent boom in Farmers Markets, Artisanal goods and a return to supporting home grown, local businesses, a correctly marketed cash discount program could see your business transactions grow exponentially.
As with every move when running your own business, make sure that the program will work for you and the product you are selling. A cash discount program may not be for you. If you think it might be the perfect fit for and your business, It can save you thousands of dollars in processing fees.

While COCARD’s REVONU POS is already well known for powering payments at restaurants, salons, and retail establishments, it also helps Holy Cross Monastery manage their gift shop inventory, payments and book sales.
Brother Scott: Our system is in the gift shop where we sell a mixture of books, religious gifts, candy bars and snacks.
Brother Scott: We have been working with COCARD for a while, primarily because the previous POS system we were using had recommended COCARD as a merchant services provider. Also, when EMV came about we were looking at how to accommodate that. We had the option to stay with a previous system or change to what COCARD was recommending. COCARD’s support had always been quite good so we felt confident in going with their recommendation, which was REVONU POS.
Brother Scott: The previous software we used had been minimally updated since the 90’s. So, now that we have been able to use the newer technology, particularly the cloud based software to access the back office from anywhere, our store has been running a lot smoother.
Brother Scott: Again, the newer technology and back office cloud integration is great! Also the staff in the store really like the ease of the touch- screen functions on the terminal.Read MoreRead More
