  • The market may also wish to accept debit and/or credit cards to increase sales.  In most cases, the market sponsor will be responsible for purchasing or leasing its own POS device and for all monthly fees and transaction fees for both debit/credit and EBT purchases when using a commercial device.  Please check with your State EBT office for specific information.  
  • If the market accepts commercial debit/credit cards, the scrip given to SNAP customers must be distinct from non-SNAP debit/credit scrip, so that no cash is given for this scrip and so that only eligible food products are purchased with SNAP benefits.
