Cash Discount Program
How our cash discounting program works
Trinity Payment Solutions Cash Discount Program removes merchant processing fees for companies. The total transaction (cost of goods/services + non-cash adjustment) is deposited into the merchant’s account, and the non-cash adjustment fee is automatically withdrawn daily, avoiding the high monthly debit fees that merchants commonly end up paying.

If they are going to use a credit card to make an in-person payment, there will be a separate charge on the credit card slip for the non-cash cost.
Removing Processing Fees

- On the following day, $100.00 is deposited in the merchant’s bank with all other transactions.
- In place of monthly processing fees, the 3.75 percent ($3.75) non-cash adjustment that was originally charged to the customer is redirected to the processor.
