As the EBT program continues to grow, the market becomes more and more valuable to merchants who qualify to accept food stamps (grocery stores, select retailers). A large part of your market could be using these EBT cards and you don't even know it! Learn more about EBT and your business here.
Goodpaster Merchant Solutions will assist you with processing EBT transactions with ease. EBT cards work exactly like a debit card. The consumer will swipe the card through your credit card terminal and enter their PIN. Once the transaction is approved, it is treated exactly like a debit card, and the amount will be credited to your bank account the same way. There is no special equipment needed to accept EBT payments for all 50 states.
Unlike the SNAP (food stamp) program of EBT, there are also EBT cash benefits on the same card. EBT cash has few restrictions on use. Because these are added to the card to replace checks, merchants do not need to be certified by the government to accept EBT cash payments. Best of all, surcharges are allowed in order to cover your cost. Call today to get set up.
