This list provides Third Party Processor options for SNAP-authorized retailers who may not know where to obtain EBT equipment and services. All SNAP- authorized retailers, except those exempted below, must pay for their own EBT equipment and services and should arrange for lease or purchase of EBT equipment and services as soon as they can, in order to ensure future participation in SNAP.
EXCEPTIONS: Eligible farmers’ markets, direct-marketing farmers, military commissaries, non- profit food buying cooperatives, group living arrangements, treatment centers, and prepared meal services (other than for-profit restaurants participating in State-option restaurant programs) may continue to qualify for free EBT equipment and services until further notice.
This is not an all inclusive list and may be updated as FNS becomes aware of additional companies that provide this service . FNS does not endorse any one company over the other; you are NOT required to select from one of the companies below.
FNS has not researched the performance, business practices, reputation or ethics of the companies included on this list, and cannot be held responsible for any unauthorized charges, errors, disputes, misleading information or other problems that result from selection of one of these TPPs. SNAP-authorized retailers need to conduct their own research and due diligence when selecting a TPP and should review the cost of leasing or purchasing equipment and services to make the best choice for their business. The attachment to this document provides some recommendations and guidance to retailers on what issues to consider when selecting a TPP.
