STOP & Shop announced that anyone using SNAP in New York or New Jersey can now pay with an EBT card when ordering online for pickup and delivery.
The move means online grocery shoppers can add their EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card to their account at StopandShop.com and purchase items using their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) funds.
When browsing online, SNAP shoppers can sort products to show eligible items, and a “SNAP Eligible” label will appear in product details.
During checkout, customers can select the “Apply SNAP Benefits” option and choose how much to charge to their EBT card, allowing for personalized budgeting throughout the month.
“Offering EBT payment online is an integral part of Stop & Shop’s commitment to serving our communities,” said Gordon Reid, President of Stop & Shop. “We are proud to make access to healthy food easier and more convenient, especially for those affected by the pandemic.
SNAP customers in New York and New Jersey can use their benefits to purchase eligible food and grocery items for online ordering; however, they will need to use another credit/debit card or checking account for all items not eligible for SNAP, and for fees, taxes, or driver gratuities.
Pickup orders with Stop & Shop are subject to a $2.95 fee.
Delivery orders placed with the Grocer are subject to a delivery charge of $9.95 for orders under $100 and $6.95 for orders over $100.

Stop & Shop has been in business for over 100 years and employs some 58,000 associates on more than 400 floors across Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey.
