What’s the difference?
Reduces the sticker price of a product or service is the customer pays cash, check or with certain debit card processes. Credit purchases pay full sticker price. You can also leave the sticker price alone, and offer a discount for cash sales.
Adds a fee to the sticker price to cover the cost of processing payments by credit. Surcharging requires registration with processor associations.
Both methods require compliance with signage regulations. Neither is available is every location with every processor or device.

What is Surcharging?
Surcharging passes the cost of credit processing transactions to the customer at the time of sale. This practice is already commonly used in many countries. In 2013 surcharging became legal in the U.S. Until recently, some states, including Florida, have prohibited surcharging. Although Florida Statutes currently prohibit surcharging, the US Supreme Court has determined that Florida law is unconstitutional based on the freedom of speech. In 2013, new rules enabled businesses in America to do what universities and government had long been permitted to do, pass on the fee when customers choose credit cards for convenience or rewards.
Businesses no longer have to bear the burden of processing fees.
Accepting credit cards is a necessity in today’s world. The cost of processing high ticket transactions on a credit card could be putting a serious dent in your profits. Is surcharging or cash discounting an option for your company?
In January of 2013, Visa and MasterCard updated their operating regulations to allow merchants to pass the costs of accepting credit cards on to their customers.
