  • Become licensed to accept SNAP benefits by FNS.
  • Design and purchase tokens or print paper scrip. The scrip must be hard to counterfeit.  For paper scrip, non-photocopy-able paper is required. Placing sequential serial numbers on all scrip is strongly advised.
  • Train farmers in scrip redemption rules and procedures. (The market's ability to accept SNAP benefits could be jeopardized if a farmer commits a SNAP violation while operating under the market's FNS license.)
  • Develop an accounting system and method for reimbursing vendors.
  • Determine a secure place where the POS equipment, tokens and supplies will be stored when not in use and who will be responsible for proper storage.
