With credit card processing costs on the rise, savvy restaurant owners are looking for ways to help their bottom line. In some states* credit card surcharges are an increasingly acceptable way to pass these costs on to the customer. Others may find a cash discount is more appealing.
With Thrive 8.1, you can configure an offer to be a “Surcharge” type and add a % or $ amount to your order automatically — based on a variety of criteria such as order type, time of day, minimum purchase, etc. You can also configure a surcharge or discount to apply based on the tender type (credit or cash) selected.
Surcharges can be used for a variety of purposes, perhaps to help supplement employee healthcare costs, as an extra delivery / set-up charge for large orders, or to support a local charitable initiative.
If you are interested in upgrading to Thrive v8.1, call 817-750-3947 or use your online support portal to request an upgrade!
*Some states prohibit credit card surcharges, and they are limited in amount. Here's a good article that explains the details: https://www.thebalance.com/credit-card-surcharges-315423
