In order to accept EBT cards (also known as “food stamps”) at your retail food business or farmer’s market, you’ll have to be an authorized SNAP benefits retailer. Once you are one, then you can apply for a merchant account. Before you do apply, make sure to ask the merchant service provider about your need to accept EBT cards so that they can provide the appropriate credit card terminal that has the ability to accept EBT cards.
At Group ISO, we have a variety of terminals that are SNAP benefit card friendly. All a customer needs to do at the point of sale is simply swipe their EBT card, input their pin number, confirm the transaction and their purchase is complete! Best of all, you’ll still enjoy the low rates of a retail, swiped transaction!
Do you want to get started with accepting credit cards and EBT cards (if you are an authorized SNAP retailer)? Contact a knowledgeable Group ISO representative today and we can guide you through the simple process.
