Customers in the U.S. can pay for online orders with a valid EBT card, in full or in part, from participating stores in select states. For a full list of states, check out our SNAP via EBT card article. 

If you don’t see EBT SNAP as an option for your local participating store, make sure you have the latest version of the Instacart app. If you still can’t see EBT SNAP, check back often as we continue to expand to more stores.
