What is the difference between
EBT, SNAP, and P-EBT?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federal nutrition
program administered by USDA-FNS that helps eligible consumers purchase
healthy foods using their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards.

SNAP

an FNS program that provides
healthy foods for eligible people

EBT

an electronic system that enables
SNAP participants to use their benefits

P-EBT

benefits similar to SNAP created
in response to the pandemic

Why should I become a SNAP retailer?

There are many reasons merchants decide to accept EBT and become a SNAP retailer.

  • Added revenue stream
    EBT cards are another method of payment
    available to nearly 42 million Americans
  • Increased foot traffic
    SNAP participants look for stores
    that accept EBT
  • Lift in residual sales
    Consumers will also make non-SNAP
    purchases while using their EBT cards
  • Improved reputation
    Fighting hunger in the community
    is a great way to give back
