There is a limited number of wireless POS equipment for Farmers Markets or Direct-Marketing Farms (FM, DFM) through the WV DHHR that will be awarded for FREE on a first-come, first-serve basis. These card readers will only be set up to run EBT cards and to cover the setup fees of the equipment and monthly expenses for processing the EBT transactions through September 2021.

​*You will be ineligible to receive free equipment if you consult with a POS/Market Link directly
