A-1 Merchant Solutions provides retail outlets that currently accept EBT/SNAP transactions with the ability to continue to accept these transactions at a lower cost than the state offers you in most cases.

We have learned from our customers and certain state representatives that a retail outlet currently accepting payments through the state program can continue to do so through the state program. But the program will no longer offer these services to retail outlets for free.

The state program will now cost retailers up to $50 per month per piece of equipment and up to $0.10 per transaction!

A-1 Merchant Solutions will allow you to accept these transactions with our loaner equipment without a monthly fee for the equipment and for a much lower cost per transaction. Our transaction cost will save retailers from 25%-40% versus the state program.

A-1 Merchant Solutions suggests you use our equipment for all your credit card, check card, and EBT transactions all on one, brand new, state-of-the-art, piece of equipment. This will allow you to have more counter space and become more efficient. In most cases we will decrease your credit card expenses and give you a less expensive alternative to what is suggested by the state for your EBT transactions.
