Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Support

Overview

Electronic Benefits Transfer, sometimes referred to as "food stamps", are a commonly utilized way for customers to pay for certain orders. In this article, we'll discuss Modern Retail's stance on EBT support.

EBT Support

Currently we do not support EBT. We don't pass the EBT "flag" from a given order down to CounterPoint, and the ecommerce platforms we support (Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, and Magento) also lack innate EBT support. In order to support EBT on a website, two things would need to occur:

1. Your website would need to know which products are valid for EBT purchases, and which ones don't.

2. The checkout for your site would need to be enhanced to process EBT cards for exclusively products that are EBT approved.

If this is an enhancement you need for your site, please feel free to contact us with a support request.
