Other guidelines and information

Verifying qualifying EBT purchases
Merchants are solely responsible for ensuring that EBT purchases are for qualifying items.

Remote Pay sale requests
Remote Pay sale requests can't specify that a request is EBT only. If a sale request is using Remote Pay, then your app must check that the tender type was EBT in the sale response; otherwise, the payment must be voided.

Partial auths
Partial auths can't be performed on EBT transactions. They are declined with Insufficient Funds. The decline will still include the beginning and available balances.

Offline EBT transactions not supported
Each state has its own EBT network. If a state's network is down, its transactions cannot be completed. Offline EBT transactions decline with a Transaction declined message.
