One of our processing partners, Clearent, offers insights to the differences between the Daily Discount and the Monthly discount for credit card fees and why it might be useful during this economy:

The Power of Daily Discount

Credit card processors typically offer two billing options, Daily Discount and Monthly Discount. The difference between the two is the timing of when the fees are deducted from the merchant’s account.
