Do you currently accept EBT?
Can your current processor do EBT?
Do you have to purchase equipment before September, 21, 2014?
Per new State and Federal regulations, retailers will no longer be offered free EBT equipment to participate in SNAP. Retailers who have been using free EBT equipment and services to accept SNAP may continue to use the EBT equipment and services for free until September 21, 2014 unless your State makes arrangements to convert you sooner.
If your business currently uses manual vouchers to conduct SNAP transactions, and you were authorized to accept SNAP prior to March 22, 2014, you may continue to use manual vouchers until the Food and Nutrition Service notifies you of a change. However, you must arrange for and pay for EBT equipment as noted above and work with your EBT vendor regarding manual voucher supplies and processing.
CreditCardProcessing.com offers an all-in-one terminal that will allow merchants to continue to accept EBT on a terminal that can also be used as back-up. This terminal will also act as a back-up to accept all card types including fleet cards in case your branded or current network goes down.
