A chargeback is when a cardholder disputes a transaction they don’t recognize or believe was done in error.
The most common claims for chargebacks are:
Incorrect amount charged to the cardholder.
Item not received.
Items or services not as described.
It is important to note that the chargeback system is run by the card brands (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, etc.) and not OrangePay.
If you receive a chargeback notification via email or in the mail, please respond as quickly as possible. There are often limitations and if the response date has passed, you may be left with little recourse to dispute the chargeback. Let us know if you need any assistance with this process and we’ll be happy to assist.

Cash Discounting FAQs
The OrangePay Cash Discount Program is a way for you as the merchant to eliminate your Credit Card Processing Fees. It’s the latest method of implementing a service fee to credit card paying customers, while giving a discount to those who pay with cash.
All US businesses that accept credit cards can gain from joining our programme. For example, nail and beauty salons, mom and pop shops, fashion retailers, car retailers, veterinary clinics, pest control businesses, professionals like doctors or lawyers, dentists, accountants, etc…
Yes, our programme is 100% legal in all 50 States. Federal regulations have recently changed in favor of business owners like yourself and as of 2011, The Dodd-Frank law prohibits payment card networks such as Visa and Mastercard “from inhibiting the ability of anyone to provide a discount for payment by cash”.
No it is not, a surcharge is a checkout fee or extra fee charged by a merchant when a customer pays with a credit or debit card. Surcharge doesn’t offer a discount to cash paying clients and is only legal in 46/50 states.
No, in fact, the cash discount concept has been used for decades in Europe and even in the USA! Gas stations and governmental offices have been offering a discount to customers paying with cash. However, due to recent changes in federal credit card regulations this programme is now available to all US business owners.
Don’t Worry!! Studies have shown that 99.2% of people won’t think twice about using their credit card, even if it means paying a little extra. That’s less than 1 out of 100 customers! The convenience of using credit cards often outweighs the extra cost.
If you are having a bad experience with the cash discount programme you are welcome to get in touch with our 24/7 support team and we will immediately switch you back to traditional processing.

The OrangePay Cash Discount Programme will eliminate all your credit card processing fees. However, based on your turnover they may be some small monthly payments which covers our proprietary technology to process these transactions. However, these monthly fees are minimal which makes the program a much more affordable alternative than paying credit card processing fees.
We are here to guide you through every step of the way to ensure that this programme is being effectively used in your business. You don’t need to change any of your prices! Once you have signed up all your store prices become cash prices and we will send you specially designed signage to inform your customers that marked prices are cash prices and all credit card transactions will now carry an additional 4% fee. Our proprietary software ensures that the fees are calculated automatically and no adjustments will need to be made.
We have found that the equipment being used by most companies is outdated or not compatible with calculating the cash discounts. We will send brand new equipment and these fees will form part of your minimal monthly fees.
