Calculate the estimated savings you can realize by implementing a funeral home cash discount program.
Did you like the savings estimate of our cash discount program for funeral homes? If so, you want to know exactly how all this works for your specific business. On this page, we’ll specify how the cash discount program would benefit funeral homes.
Cash discount programs are not new. Thousands of businesses are making the switch daily. When you purchase gas, they offer a cash discount program. Even when you go eat, you’ll see a 20% surcharge on some bills depending on the restaurant you attend.
There are various ways that funeral home cash discount programs are beneficial. First, it is no secret that worldwide inflation is up greatly since 2020. Many businesses have not increased their prices despite a large increase in the cost of goods and the cost of labor. Inflation is eating into the margins of funeral homes. Cash discount programs to eliminate merchant fees are one-factor funeral home owners can control. Offering a cash discount program is usually more well-received compared to raising prices across the board.
Standing out from the competition is another strong benefit of implementing a funeral home cash discount program. On your marketing materials, indicating that you offer cash discounts is a great way to motivate customers to at least receive a quote and tour your facility first. In such an important time in one’s life to plan their funeral or during a time of crisis, offering a money-saving option can be looked upon as admirable. This cash discount wouldn’t cost your funeral home anything and would not eat into any of your margins. That is because if they were to pay with a credit card, processing fees would eat into roughly 3% of the charge. This is the same amount you can discount your services for a net equal transaction but instead of the processing companies getting paid, those funds go to your customer.
The last benefit is the ease of use. With EliminateCardFees.com, you receive a fully compliant terminal that calculates the savings for your customer. After implementation, you no longer have to worry about annual rate hikes or sneaky fees charged by your processor such as PCI compliance or other fees. Many funeral homes often wish they learned about the cash discount program sooner!

Most businesses are resistant to change unless there is a good reason. However, savings thousands of dollars per month is a pretty good reason to not resist change. The best part about the cash discount program is not many changes. You still accept credit cards. You just no longer are on the hook for the costly processing fees.
Therefore, you’ll be happy to know that the funeral home cash discount program works just like your current processing!
