National Retail Solutions is excited to offer eWIC acceptance on our point of sale system, seamlessly integrated with NRS Pay credit card processing. EWIC can be fully provisioned with your POS, to make eWIC transactions quick and easy.
EWIC, formerly known as WIC (Women, Infants, Children),
is a supplementary nutritional program, funded by the government through the USDA.
The program provides for pregnant women, mothers of young children, and children under 5, in low income households. Specially designated funds are provided to eligible participants, to purchase healthy, essential foods such as milk, cheese, eggs and whole grain breads.
Formerly, once an individual was registered for WIC at their state or local agency, they would receive physical paper benefits checks.
When the customer would check out, the cashier would manually cross-reference the list of approved products in the customer’s cart with the benefits listed on their check, to ensure that the transaction conformed within state guidelines.
As of more recently, in an effort to make the WIC checkout process easier and more efficient, state regulators have worked with technology companies to transition the entire WIC process to online; now called eWIC. Now, instead of the store clerk having to manually survey the WIC checks and review cart items, the POS system automatically does this.
As an NRS retailer with an eWIC-provisioned POS system, your customers can simply bring their eWIC items to the checkout counter, where you can quickly scan them into your POS.
