Finally - eWIC Integration for Point of Sale

What is WIC - WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, funded by the federal government.

What is eWIC (from the State of Alaska):

"Our WIC program is moving from checks to an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card we're calling "eWIC." The new eWIC card looks like a debit card and has all of your family’s WIC benefits in one place."

  • It's Fast
  • Saves time at checkout!
  • It's Flexible
  • Buy as little or as much of your WIC food at a time!
  • It's Simple
  • No more paper checks!

Now with eWIC integrated right into the store's POS, it will be easier and more discreet for families to shop. No more separating WIC items at checkout and paying with a paper check.

Watch the video below to see how fast and easy it is to process WIC transactions with integrated eWIC.
