Forage is your one point of contact for both regulatory and technology needs. In order for merchants to accept EBT payments online they have to go through a lengthy approval process through the USDA.
We work with the government to guide our partners through compliancy regulations at both the state and federal levels. With Forage, merchants see their approval time improve by 200%.
Forage launches customers in one third of the time compared to our competitors.

Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) is the system used to transfer government benefits, including SNAP and TANF. The Forage API can be embedded into your site and used to accept EBT cards. Follow this link for more information.
The USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) oversees SNAP. Thus, they are the gatekeepers to any entity attempting to transact SNAP benefits, both in brick and mortar stores and online. In order to accept SNAP benefits as a form of payment, you as the merchant must become FNS certified and be given an FNS number. If you are not currently a SNAP authorized merchant, follow this link for more information.
