  • Cardinal Cash Fair

    After a COVID hiatus, the Cardinal Cash Fair is finally returning to the SUNY Plattsburgh campus!

    Our Fall Fair was held on September 2, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the ACC Ballrooms. A big thank you to all of our merchants who turned out.

    Please stay tuned for the spring date, which will be announced soon!

Becoming a Cardinal Cash Merchant

  • How Does It Work?
    1. A SUNY Plattsburgh ID card holder requests to make a purchase at your business with Cardinal Cash
    2. You check the photo ID and signature for verification
    3. You swipe the card on the CAS provided processing method
    4. You print a receipt for the customer’s signature
    5. You receive your funds through a weekly ACH deposit, minus a 5% processing fee
