How does it Work?


**** IMPORTANT!!! ***PLEASE READ!: WICShopper CURRENTLY SUPPORTS THE WIC PROGRAMS IN THE FOLLOWING STATES: Alaska Chickasaw Nation (Summer Lunch Program only) Colorado Connecticut DC (Verification only) Florida Hawaii Idaho Iowa ITC Arizona ITC Nevada Kansas Kentucky Louisiana (Verification only) Maine Massachusetts Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Jersey North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma Oregon Pennsylvania (Verification Only) Rhode Island (Verification Only) Tennessee (NEW!) Utah Vermont (Verification only) Washington West Virginia Wyoming WICShopper WILL NOT WORK IN OTHER STATES. We are adding new states all the time, so please check back soon if you participate in another WIC program! Grocery shopping for foods allowed by your WIC* program can be confusing. Much of the problem is from not knowing exactly what products you can purchase with your WIC benefits. WICShopper is here to help you shop with confidence. Using WICShopper, you can check the WIC eligibility of products while you shop! In all of our supported WIC programs, you can use your phone to scan products to check their WIC eligibility. In most supported states, you may register your eWIC card, then automatically download your CURRENT and FUTURE benefits every time you shop! WICShopper doesn’t just tell you if the product is WIC eligible… it tells you if you have enough WIC benefits left to purchase the product! In states that use "smart cards" such as Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana it is not possible to load your prescription because it is stored on your card. In these states, you can use the app to capture and store an image of your benefits to use the next time you shop. Here is what WIC participants are saying about WICShopper: "This app ROCKS! I was able to see my balance & the best part was being able to scan barcodes! Saved me a lot of headaches! Love this app, very convenient!" "Loooooove this app!!! So helpful, simple and useful! I've recommended it to everyone I know with the benefits. Thanks for making it." "Awesome app. I love being able to see my wic balance with out having to save and scramble for a recent reciept when I need to go to the store. Very convenient!" "LOVE IT!!!!!! I can never find my receipt so this is very convenient and handy. Even if this app was $1 I would pay for it." "This is awesome u know how many times ive got up to the register n it not b wic approved or something is wrong. Now i can check b4 thank u" "U can scan it to make sure it's approved ?!? Awesome!!" "This is a wonderful app. I love the options it has for recipes, and its so helpful to remember the benefits your recieving for the month. Its also nice that the App. sends you a reminder on the last day to use your benefits." "Thought this was neat cause u don't know ur wic balance unless u go to the store n get a receipt. It even lets u scan stuff to see if its wic approved" "Aww me gusto!" "I live in Iowa and this app has been SUCH a lifesaver! I am using the barcode scanner constantly because there are things covered by WIC that I never knew about and it's so handy! Juggling my 3 girls at the store is hard enough without having to wonder "is this covered?" or "did I use all of that already?" I love that when you scan an item it bot only tells you if its allowed but it tells you exactly how much is allowed! I couldn't be happier. :)" "I have it and love it takes the guess out of shopping for my daughter." "This is awesome!! Since we don't have checks anymore I've been forgetting what all I have left lol." We are adding new states as quickly as possible, so if your state isn't listed please check back soon!

  • Talked about this with my worker


    By niccole Ray
    So I was in the wic office and was talking to my worker about knowing what we can and can’t buy and then went in after a month or two and come back to this app which helps others with wic find things in store that some stores neglected to put up so we know why we are shopping for this isn’t a negative review it’s a positive one and wish this was available when I had my younger children but still glad it is around and will continue to use as long as it’s around they should add more for the parents to do things like all things related to wic and parents of all ages to get more like classes online or through app in real time like cooking parenting and nursing as well for new parents breastfeeding and as well as going to school setting up wic appointments learning what some one needs to come new or Recertification and other things I can go on but I already said to much if they come up with all this I want credit lol but I’m a parent and love this app good job wic
  • I like the app, WIC not so much


    By EmcLedLlc
    I find the app really useful to do our shopping rather than the confusing guides WIC used to have. My complaints are with WIC: We had Kern County in Kern CANCEL our account when we moved to Nevada, which they were supposed to transfer. I hope someone loses their job over that. Next, many items I would expect WIC to cover are not or there are size limits which, in many grocery stores, make the process of buying food either impossible (out of stock or not stocked) or extremely difficult. WIC doesn’t cover teething snacks such as rice husks or gerber’s lil’ crunchies, which I’m currently having to buy on SNAP or out of pocket. Kinda defeats the purpose of the program, doesn’t it? Next I have serious issue with my daughter’s benefits not automatically adjusting for her age, which we had to provide proof of when we registered. Why are we being required to schedule a lengthy appointment (where we are required to watch videos we already covered in birthing classes so it’s a complete waste of our time) just to have her benefits updated for her age?! My daughter shouldn’t be at 6 months and having WIC benefits of formula and breastfeeding foods, it should have updated without us having to call to change it the day she turned 6 months! I shouldn’t have to rely on SNAP to get the items WIC should already authorize... I can buy $170 of formula at once but can’t buy $2.50 of teething snacks.
  • Love it!!


    By xo_greengoddess
    Honestly this app has helped me in so many ways! No more scrambling though those wic vouchers and or paperwork just to see which benefits you have available. This app makes it so easy, it shows all of the food items you are allowed to purchase for the month. It tracks your appointments, which I don’t know if anyone is like me but I am HORRIBLE with keeping track of when my next appointment is. It also, has the # and address for YOUR wic office so if you don’t have time to just google their number BAM it’s right there. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the fruit and veggie calculator- it’s kind-of tricky at first but once you get it down it’s awesome! There’s so many other things that this app has helped me with! I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do!
  • Help fix the app glitch!!


    By Annoyed WIC user
    Since the update I cannot see available benefits! Before the update I had no issues and loved this app! Fix the glitch please! I did every thing I could possibly do to resolve it myself such as delete and add the card, and delete and add the app and nothing fixed the problem. *update* Was contacted about the problem and now it's fixed. Now I can view benefits. This app is incredibly useful. My only complaint is that I have trouble in most stores with loading speed and Sometimes it just won't load, but not sure that this issue could be fixed or that there can be an offline mode since that's the only way to access your info?
  • Time saver!


    By hick505
    Instead of having to track what benefits were used and which ones are still available for my foster daughter, I am able to just open the app and it is very convenient!! I also live the ability to scan the food and the system telling me if it's covered or not. If it's not covered, it is supposed to tell me some suggestions … but this never works for me There is also a section where you can look up recipes. You can filter by the meal you would like to make. What I would find helpful here is if you could filter based upon the WIC benefit (i.e. Yogurt). That way if you have extra of one thing and want to use it you could find a healthy recipe.
  • So MUCH easier!!!


    By akmamaaa
    I love this app so much more than the checks! I was always embarrassed to get in line with the checks because it took so long. I always felt I was fumbling trying to figure everything out and to do that while there was a line was soooo stressful. I actually ended up getting off of WIC for close to 2 years because I didn’t want to go through that again. This app & card changes everything!!! It makes it so much easier to track things & to check out, makes it so much simpler. WIC has helped me fill in the spots where we are running low on groceries but don’t get paid for awhile. Helps to supplement and get us though, thank you for getting the card & app WIC!!
  • Great,


    By worthj3
    Great app. Makes shopping so much easier. One small suggestion with design, I often accidentally click the (x) instead of the back button. If I’m looking through recipes and press the (x) I’m all the way back to the beginning when all I really wanted was to see the next one. I realize it’s mostly my fault but I wonder if back and (x) switched spots? It wouldn’t be as annoying if the loading time was shorter. Overall, very useful, I appreciate the bar scanner so I don’t have to dig through my old folder in the middle of the store. Thanks
  • A Lifesaver!!


    By pHutchinson88
    Going to the grocery store to gather WIC items is usually such a headache. Between not knowing if you're "allowed" to get certain items, to your child(ren) being completely fed up with how long Mommy is taking in the grocery store. With this app, I am able to scan barcodes in the aisle, and verify if they are approved items. It cuts down checkout time, because I don't end up with any mistaken items. No more impatient people in line behind me, huffing and puffing because, "Oh God, it's a WIC person." 🙄 Thank you so much for this app!! It has saved my sanity, and prevented many people in line behind me from getting yelled at. lol
  • Needs major improvement!!!!


    By jazzy83
    This app should have never launch in the state of PA. 1st I can’t even see what quantities of food I have on the app. There’s no way to register my card with the app. It only has a tab for cereal and vegetables amounts but not for the other foods. So basically I don’t have to run around with checks but I still have to run around with a piece of paper or receipts from my last shopping trip in order to remember what I need or if I still have available for my next trip. This is just more crap for steal storage space on my phone and clutter ones purse. I’m sure others can agree. This app right now has no benefit to PA WIC participants. Also my I add that no one gave a proper demonstration on how to use the app at the WIC office but that’s an other complaint. The website was very vague as well. Hope it improves.
  • This app is amazing!


    By TeresaFenwick
    As well as being a recipient of WIC, I also work at a grocery store. When the e-card first came out, there were some learning curves involved. I said to myself “there should be an app!” And looky here, there is! Best parts: - It shows which benefits you have remaining and when they expire - You can scan a product’s UPC and it will simply tell you yes or no if it qualifies - If the UPC doesn’t qualify and you think it should, per WIC guidelines, you can submit a form right from the app - When you only have a certain amount of a benefit left, it will only show items that fall within the parameters (I.e. if you only 12 oz cereal left, it’s only showing 12 oz options) - Click on a benefit and it will tell you which products are options Other nice features that I have yet to utilize: - recipes using items from benefits - produce calculator - farmers market locator - nutrition education I can’t say enough good things about this app. It is so helpful.
