On Wegmans Orders, Instacart Will Accept Ebt Snap Payments!

As announced in a press release issued on Wednesday (April 13), Instacart has partnered with Wegmans Food Markets in order to accept Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) payments at its 106 stores across the United States.

The stores are located in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Virginia, and North Carolina.

It was announced in a press release that Wegmans would accept EBT SNAP payments for online orders.

“The introduction of EBT SNAP payments for online orders increases accessibility to our wide selection of groceries, including fresh, wholesome, and packaged foods, throughout our communities,” said Erica Tickle, vice president of eCommerce at Wegmans.

As she put it, “This is really important for our consumers and our firm, as we try to help people live healthier, better lives via food.”

“Taking the first step toward accepting EBT SNAP payments through the Instacart website and mobile app is a significant accomplishment, and we look forward to expanding this feature to Wegmans.com and our mobile app later this year.”

Customers of Wegmans can now make EBT SNAP purchases at Wegmans using the Instacart website and mobile app, and their purchases will be delivered the same day, continuing a service that began in 2017.
