Accepting EBT Payments is Simple!

Open your business to millions of new customers who

take part in the Electronic Benefits Transfer program.

With tens of millions of people using EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer), these government benefits will continue to play an important economic role for many years to come

EBT is used in all states to issue food stamp benefits to recipients. Many states also issue cash benefits such as TANF using EBT. Recipients are issued an “EBT Card” similar to a bank ATM or debit card to receive and use their food stamp and/or cash benefits.  Benefits are automatically deposited onto the card by the State. Recipients with food stamp benefits can use their EBT Card for eligible food purchases at most grocery stores and some other retailers.


Broaden your customer base while fulfilling the needs of the people within your business’s community.


The EBT card works just like a debit card payment minimizing the need to learn a new complicated process.

New Customers

Allowing for the acceptance of EBT opens your business to the millions of people who participate in the program and are in need of the goods or services your business provides.

EBT is the modern version of the previous Food Stamp Program.
The SNAP program has expanded to America’s Farmers Markets allowing for EBT purchases to be made on fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods

How do I get set up to accept EBT?

Merchants should contact their federal or state department that handles EBT processing and apply for an EBT Account Number. If you need assistance in doing so, True Merchant can direct you to the correct department. Once an EBT account has been established, the feature can added to your merchant account.

Why accept EBT payments?

Recipients with cash benefits can use their EBT Card like cash for purchases and cash-back with purchases at grocery stores and at most ATMs (automated teller machines).

EBT derived as an innovative alternative from the Food Stamp Program. As of October of 2008 it was renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
