Hello,

I am interested finding ways for small farms to sell their food online to SNAP/EBT customers. Does Shopify or Amazon Pay offer methods of accepting SNAP payments so that customer transactions can be handled online?

Thank you for your time,

Ryan

We are also wondering the same question! I believe that WorldPay has a Shopify integration and that is how we accepted EBT payments previously. Wondering whether you figured this out? Thank you!

Thanks

Hi Abey,
I was hoping to get more information on this option as we are looking about the possibility of accepting EBT but trying to figure out what is required, how much it will cost and if it is worth it to us for the amount of customers that would like to use it.

Hi, will you please forward information on accepting EBT through an integrated app? According to the USDA website, only FISERV/Paysecure is certified for secure pin-entry. Is your company affiliated? Thanks, Elisa

It's a long process.

 

You need to be registered with the USDA as a business approved under their requirements among other things.

 

So right now I am in the process of getting things ready.

We are already approved, we accept at our store, but want to be able to accept on our online store too, but there is no plug / play for any of us, just Walmart and amazon ☹

Thank you for sharing!!!!

It was about 3-4 weeks, if you sent in your info, give them like 2 weeks and then call, they were helpful when I did it a few years ago 😊
312-353-6609 is a EBT help number, not sure if you have that or not, but here ya go 😊

Update - We are collaborating with a 3rd party payment provider that is
integrated with the SNAP/EBT system. The EBT's are unique because they need
more of a conversation with the banking system through the API. First, it
needs to verify the funds are in the account. Second, it needs to parse what
products are being purchased in real-time and sort out the items witch are
eligible. Third, it need to split payment between eligible and non eligible,
plus, taxes. Fourth, it needs the person who owns the card to put in a PIN.
Finally, it needs to record all of this and send it to a various Federal,
State, County, and City (if they are collecting the information).

Fees - The card processor we are working with is charging 3.4% for all the
above, but it depends on the volume, and manual key-ins, etc, etc. Shopify
is saying they add 2% on top of the 3.4% making the total 5.4%. I know,
right? So, we are looking into Woo Commerce as a potential solution. I
brought it up with Shopify and they are escalating the ticket - maybe they
will come down on their 2% for EBT because it services low income families.

If not, the perception is that banks are gouging the poor. From Shopify's
prersepective, it part of their business model, but its still a gouge to low
income families.

If Amazon and Walmart can do it, then there's a way w/o gauging anyone, but who knows...

Dear All, 

In regards to @Chrischurch1 update. 

Yes, true Shopify will have a 2% fee on top of merchant fees/card processors fees. It would be an excellent achievement If Shopify can come down at 2% 😊

With our solution, we have managed to overcome other challenges mentioned by @Chrischurch1 ; through our application, Shopify merchants will be able to categorise products as EBT eligible and non-eligible. hence at the point of the checkout, based on product type they created our application can control what can be go through EBT enabled gateway or through normal payment gateway.

Dear @Chrischurch1,

We are a Shopify partner and an application developer. As an organisation, we are specialised in integrating third party payment gateways/Payment processors into Shopify stores. 

Unfortunately, each Shopify Merchant must find a suitable payment processor and signup directly if they wish to process EBT/SNAP payments. Once this step is completed, you will need to complete payment processor integration process through us or with any other application development agency.
