Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that allows a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participant to pay for food using SNAP benefits. When a participant shops at a SNAP authorized retail store, their SNAP EBT account is debited to reimburse the store for food that was purchased. EBT is in use in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam. EBT has been the sole method of SNAP issuance in all states since June of 2004.

Your business must meet the requirements set forth by the USDA to process EBT or SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)transactions. Your business must obtain an FNS number issued by the USDA FNS Work Center which authorizes your business to process EBT or SNAP transactions.

What do I need to process EBT? 

EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) is an electronic system in the US that allows the state governments to provide benefits to authorized recipients via a plastic debit card. Common benefits provided via EBT are typically sorted into two general categories, Food Stamps and Cash benefits. Through EBT, a recipient uses his/her EBT card to make purchases at participating retailers.
