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 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 Wyoming 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!!"
"I just downloaded this last week. Its awesome."
"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!"
"Getting this app!!!"
"I have it and love it takes the guess out of shopping for my daughter."

- FUTURE benefits! If you were able to register your WIC card, you will now be able to see all the months that you have been prescribed benefits for!
- Least Expensive Brand - Some state agencies require that stores only sell their least expensive brand (LEB) of certain categories like milk and eggs. This can cause a lot of confusion because a product might scan as WIC eligible, but then not be allowed at the register. Agencies will now be able to add messaging to help participants navigate this complicated rule.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Help fix the app glitch!!
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.
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?
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
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
