I don't know anything about online credit card processing but this reminds
me of the old trick builders used to use, pay me now and I'll do it for a
discounted price.

Why would a reputable company want to lower their price for only the 3 days
after you express your interest?  If they were going to lower their price,
they would do so until you expressed an interest either way.  I would say
this was a high pressure sale - maybe they have something to hide?  Why else
would they only give you 3 days?

I'd say they were trying to screw you!

Sorry - but I hate that being forced to buy something before you really want
to by pretending to lower the price kinda stuff, it really pisses me off!
