Bava Metzia 65 - Early Payment is Allowed (Finds)

A person who rents out his property may increase the rent for delayed payment, but one who sells something may not increase the purchase price for delayed payment.

For example, if one rented a house to someone and said, "If you pay me for the year in advance - 10 sela, but if you pay every month, 1 sela a month," - the rent is the actual price, and the discount is given for paying early. However, if he sells a field, the money is immediately owed, and paying more later is a reward for waiting for money, which is prohibited.
