A cash discount occurs when a merchant decreases the price for cash purchases and offers merchants an alternative to credit card processing. Cash discount programs are not credit card surcharges because they do not levy a fee that is added to a credit card transaction. Both TSYS and First Data allow cash discounting. Merchants must clearly and conspicuously disclose the discount to consumers.
