New York Markets Unable to Complete SNAP Transactions

As a New York vendor, you may encounter an issue completing EBT/SNAP transactions because the "Next" button remains greyed out in the MM+ Select app.  Learn how to re-configure your device's settings in order to resolve this issue.

Our developers have placed a safeguard in the Mobile Market+ Select app that prevents a user from processing an EBT/SNAP transaction if the EBT/SNAP card number does not have the expected number of digits.  This is in place to protect both cardholders and vendors from fraudulent transactions.

However, older New York State EBT/SNAP cards commonly have more digits than the MM+ Select app expects.  As a result, vendors are unable to process EBT/SNAP transactions with those cards until the MM+ Select app settings have been re-configured to bypass that safeguard.

Follow the steps listed below to enable "Skip Luhn Check":

  1. Tap "Settings" in the lower-right hand corner of the MM+ Select app

  3. Scroll down the menu until you see "Skip Luhn Check"
  4. Swipe the "Skip Luhn Check" switch to the left to toggle it ON; it will turn green
