    Do you let them hint or ask about a possible cash price or do you tell them right off the bat that you can do a cash price? Im hesitant to say anything unless they ask or hint about it.

    Cash or check doesn't change anything for me. I treat it equally.

    And don't make customers think that it changes anything either..... I have alot of people try to lowball me on my prices saying "but, I'll be paying you cash... so that makes a BIG difference, right?".

    Ummm... no it really dosen't.


    Next time you go to the gas station to fuel up, say this... "hey, I'm payin you in cash today.... so you're gonna take $50 off the top of the price right?" :laugh:

    Funny Story: Years ago i worked for a guy that did a fair amount of cash transactions, one of them was an IRS worker. He decided to sell some of his accounts mid season to a kid that crashed his truck and was out of business on week 2. Well there where a lot of unhappy customers to say the least. He got audited shortly after and they found he owed $40K in taxes from not claiming his cash. Bank records dont lie.

    how does it not make a difference. You claim every penny huh? What is income tax in your state? 30% here.

    Why should it make a difference? Do you not claim cash?
