Self Check-Out Now Available for WIC Participants at Walmart!
The Nevada WIC Vendor team is pleased to announce that eWIC is now available at Walmart Self-Checkouts. Walmart piloted eWIC Self-Check in Oklahoma for several months and it was extremely successful. This system was tested and certified by Nevada WIC on April 23, 2020 and staff found it to be very user friendly.

Beginning April 29, 2020, Nevada WIC Participants will be able to use their Nevada WIC EBT card at all shelf-checkout lanes in Walmart stores.

Important to keep in mind when using self-checkout at Walmart:

• There is no option to run a Balance Inquiry at the Self-Checkout prior to beginning a transaction. Additionally, for any payment method, removing an item from the transaction requires approval from a store associate.
• When prompted to complete the transaction and choose “other payment option,” then choose eWIC.

If you have questions or concerns, please call 1-800-863-8942 or email us at [email protected]. Thank you!
