Accepting government benefits as payment is now as easy as accepting a debit card.
Government assistance programs now come in the form of Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards. Instead of paper coupons, most states use EBT to distribute all cash benefits such as unemployment, grocery and housing assistance. Partnering with industry vendors ensures that the EBT solution is fully integrated into key third-party software packages, which makes processing seamless and simple for all parties involved.
Supermarkets are well aware of how important customers on public assistance are — they can represent a significant percentage of their total transactions. Merchants not enabled to accept payment through assistance programs run the risk of losing customers to those that do.
