NRS Petro is a division of National Retail Solutions that offers money and time saving solutions for c-store/gas station owners to update their sites with a pump-integrated POS system and EMV compliance at the pump. Finally, gas station owners nationwide have an affordable and easy way to upgrade their locations without messy renovations and business downtime. All at a fraction of the cost.
EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa- the first three credit card networks to adopt the technology) is a fraud-reducing technology that was announced in 2011 and introduced to retail in 2015, that helps protect consumers, merchants and card issuers against potential losses from the use of counterfeit and lost or stolen payment cards at the point-of-sale system. Essentially, the “chip” on the front of the debit or credit card is what EMV refers to. This chip helps encrypt and secure sensitive information, whereas the traditional black magstripe is highly vulnerable to fraud.

The deadline that gas station owners had to accept the EMV chip at the pump, or be responsible for the fraud, chargebacks and liability, was April 2021. Everyone who did not upgrade will be subject to paying for fraudulent non-EMV transactions made at their gas station. Previously, the credit card processors/banks were responsible for this fraudentent activity, now they’re not. It’s on the average c-store/gas station owner.
Debit card, Credit card, Contactless Mobile Wallet (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc), Tap-to-Pay enabled cards.
Independent/unbranded gas station owners that need to completely replace old pumps are looking at an overwhelming $10,000 to $20,000 per pump. Based on an average of four pumps per station, plus the cost of ripping up concrete and lost business when the pumps are down, independent station owners are staring down costs from $40,000- $200,000. Those whose pumps can be retrofitted by the manufactures still face significant costs, to the tune of $40,000 to $60,000 for four pumps.

Fortunately, NRS Petro offers an easy and affordable way to become EMV compliant. Unlike the competition, we provide an innovative, solid and affordable program that works with almost all pumps. Each fueling point is $999 for our NRS EMV EZ Pump device. See our pricing sheet for more information on the other pieces of our solution.
Don’t worry, we have a solution, NRS Funding. We have a division that helps qualified merchants get the funding they need. It is fast and can be received as early as the next day! The funds can be used for initial payment, working capital or for purchasing inventory, furniture, supplies & equipment for your business.
NRS Petro offers NRS Pay! NRS Pay, integrates seamlessly with the NRS Petro POS, or can function as a standalone processing solution for any business, in any industry. On location, online or on-the-go, NRS Pay processing plans are tailored to help business owners save money and succeed custom rates! All you need to do is provide a current credit card statement and NRS Pay will analyze then generate a proposal with your custom rate.

Complete the form here. Then an NRS Petro team member will reach out to you to have you fill out the Site Survey in which they will then analyze and create your own no obligation quote!

NRS Petro will have a representative on site for installation. We also collaborate with the current company that services the gas station or regional partner to install the NRS EMV EZ Pump outside at the gas pumps. It is a collaborative effort.
Yes. The NRS Petro POS will be able to control all your inside store transactions and needs in addition to being connected to and controlling the gas pumps outside. You can view your fuel sales right there at the NRS Petro POS, both inside and outside. You can also change fuel prices, print fuel reports, receipts and much more, all on our system!
Even if you don’t have a C-store, you can still indeed upgrade at your gas pumps with the NRS Petro. Ask an NRS Petro representative for more details on how this scenario works.
Our team at NRS Petro will be able to confirm if your pumps are eligible by our NRS Petro Site Survey. We do an extensive analysis of each component of your location with information and pictures you submit: Current gas pumps, POS, forecourt controller, Network, physical layout. All of these items are asked in our NRS Petro Site Survey. On the whole, NRS Petro can retrofit 90% of the gas pumps in the market.
Not a problem, at NRSEBT we have a dedicated team that can help you obtain your EBT license!
We have different options to help fit your specific needs, while per transaction is available we strongly recommend our unlimited EBT program!
NRS offers the Worlds Greatest POS System which specializes in EBT/EWIC retailers so everything is done in 1 smart piece of equipment.
Our pricing is always displayed on our website to show transparency!
The correct answer is yes as long as you sell the required products you can apply!
Not a problem just let us know and we will add it to your account, not a lot of people know this but you don’t need a license to accept EBT cash at your store so SHHH!
With the Worlds greatest POS System of course! Our POS doesn’t allow you to sell non-EBT/EWIC items with EBT/EWIC cards, this is so important as about 30% of merchants that have these licenses lose them or have issues with the USDA over unauthorized activity, so thank you NRS for that peace of mind!
If you already have an EBT/EWIC license and have our equipment it takes 1-3 business days, if we need to help with your snap license this can take a couple of months depending on your state and situation.
We don’t believe in those, and we will try our best to please you but if for any reason you feel that we aren’t giving you 120% we ask that you give us the chance to fix any issue or you can simply cancel!
Contrary to popular belief the government does not send out equipment, there are companies that claim to send equipment from the government but in reality, these are incorrect statements, the government used to send out equipment but that stopped after the 2014 farm act.
WIC or Woman Infant & Children is a program run by the USDA, which provides food benefits to pregnant women and mothers of children under 5 in low income households. Benefits include staple foods such as bread, eggs, cheese, and specialty items such as baby formula.
“E” in eWIC stands for “electronic”. Prior to electronic payment technology, WIC transactions were carried out by checking benefits on paper checks. Now, eWIC redemptions are carried out electronically with a government-issued benefits card swiped on a credit card reader terminal at the checkout counter. NRS eWIC software integrates within the NRS POS to automatically do the eligibility checking for benefits redemption, saving the cashier time and shortening lines, with effortless eWIC transactions.
NRS eWIC integrates with the NRS POS system. The service costs $19.95/mo. for NRS POS integration, with 10¢ per transaction. NRS also offers a Double Play bundle of eWIC + Unlimited EBT for $69.90/mo., in which the 10¢ transaction fee is completely waived – unlimited transactions are FREE.
A store that wants to accept eWIC would first need to get a license from their local WIC agency. Once they have the license, and sign up for NRS eWIC, a specialist will call the store and teach them how to use the software and carry out a transaction. Finally, when they’re ready, the WIC agency will visit the store and fully certify them to accept eWIC payments. In order to sign up for our Double Play Unlimited EBT + eWIC flat rate plan, the store would also need to be certified for offering EBT.
NRS eWIC integrates with the NRS POS and requires an NRS Pay account. The government issued eWIC cards are swiped on the NRS Pay terminal, which is provided at no charge with NRS Pay account signup. Once eWIC is set up and activated, all transactions can be done on the same credit card reader, including eWIC, EBT, Credit, Debit and more.
Grocery stores, as well as bodegas and convenience stores who carry stock of eligible eWIC products such as eggs and milk, can be eligible to offer eWIC redemption. A gas station c-store that carries grocery essentials may qualify as well.
By accepting eWIC, you will be attracting more foot traffic into your store. Customers tend to visit regularly to purchase items using eWIC benefits, in addition to other non-eWIC purchases. By offering this program, you’re also building customer loyalty.
