The Slice Cash Discount Program is a way for you the merchant to offset your merchant service fees without increasing your overall rates. It is a method of passing a service fee to all customers while giving a discount to those who pay with cash.
Just about any business that accepts credit cards can benefit from Slice. From auto repair shops and daycare centers to retail establishments and professionals like doctors, lawyers, dentists and accountants, Slice can put more money in your pocket every month — a lot of it!
This is the fun part. We’ll send you everything you need in one handy package. You’ll receive a payment terminal, along with signage for your front door and terminal area explaining the discount for cash-paying customers. You’ll also receive free training, as will your sales staff. You’ll also receive a great gift while supplies last.
Just give us a call and one of our representatives will help you get started. Unfortunately, our representatives are unable to accept really expensive gifts, so a simple “Thanks for your help!” will suffice.

As Mitchell Katz, spokesman for the Federal Trade Commission, said in May 2011, “The Dodd-Frank Law prohibits a payment card network such as Visa from inhibiting the ability to provide a discount for payment by cash, checks, debit cards or credit cards… neither surcharging nor cash discounting is illegal.”

Plaintiffs attorney Martin Lueck, chairman of the executive board of Robins, Kaplan, said the allowed “surcharge” is actually a pro-consumer provision of the settlement. “Really it’s a discount that the merchants are now allowed to offer for the less expensive form of payments,” he said. He also said merchants would for the first time be allowed to disclose how much it costs them to accept credit cards.
