Point of Sale Equipment and Systems

In order to accept WIC benefits as a form of payment, WIC Vendors must use a point of sale system that is capable of connecting with the State of Michigan's EBT Contractor FIS/CDP.


Integrated Point of Sale Systems 

The Michigan WIC Program maintains a list of  point of sale system providers that allow you to accept multiple forms of payment "integrated" with one machine, including WIC, SNAP, cash assistance, credit, debit, etc. If you are interested in using one of these systems, contact a provider in the list below:

Stand-Beside Point of Sale Device

Michigan's EBT Contractor FIS/CDP also provides a point of sale device that "stands beside" another point of sale system. These devices may only accept EBT payments, including WIC, SNAP, and/or cash assistance, depending on the device you request. If you are interested in leasing a stand-beside device, you may follow the instructions below for submitting a merchant agreement to FIS.
