EBT on Passport at generic site

Post by thepuumpguy » Sat Mar 17, 2018 12:47 pm

Hey y’all,

Just wanted to know if First Data is able to process EBT cards on Gilbarco Passport systems at the moment. From what I was told earlier in the year of 2017, First Data wasn’t able to. I know branded sites can, just wanted to see if it’s possible now with generic sites.

Thanks!

What brand can? I heard it would be on a patch this fall after 11.02 is out.

My understanding is that Passport has been able to support it for some time but the network has to support it and enable it for the site. It was understanding that there were fees from the network to process them.

Branded sites can only do the Cash Portion of EBT, so it processes through just like a regular card, you don't even know they are using the EBT card (unless you see it).

Just wanted to give an update on this.

Was told 11.02 would be able to process EBT cards, but I wasn't able to set it up. Gilbarco is saying FDC will be able to process EBT with v11.04 or 11.05.
