As online shopping continues to develop it’s important to note what is happening in the industry and with our partner providers. Below is an update from Dave Makar, Marketing Director of Rosie, regarding their work in the SNAP benefit space.
We are excited to announce Rosie’s retailers can now accept payment with SNAP benefits for all pay-at-store transactions. This advancement in eCommerce technology allows your customers to see all SNAP eligible items while shopping and then select SNAP pay-at-store as a payment option.
The SNAP program aims to increase food security and reduce hunger by providing children and low-income people access to food, a healthful diet, and nutrition education. Rosie created SNAP payment integration to help retailers serve their communities while remaining competitive. We, along with the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), believe no American should have to go hungry.
In addition to pay-at-store transactions, Rosie has been developing the ability to accept online SNAP Payments. Rosie was selected by the USDA to pilot a SNAP/EBT pay-online (for pick-up or delivery) option. This pilot program will be rolled out for Rosie partner retailer Dash’s Market of Buffalo, New York in mid-August 2017. Some time after it will be available to all Rosie retailers. You can read more about the pilot program partnership here: USDA Selects Dash’s Market Powered by Rosie to Participate in SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot.
Rosie Applications is fortunate to be a partner with AWG to support their mission of providing services for member-retailers so they can compete favorably in all markets served. We look forward to serving you.
