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."

Talked about this with my worker
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
Needs more work
As much as would like to enjoy using my WIC APP man it’s stressful! The pictures don’t show! I always end up taking certain items out when getting to the cashier or at self checkout! I always end up spending so much time at the bread and milk area to see which is which. The pictures are the main problems for me. I don’t have the whole day to be checking codes and names of items before I can move on. And due to pictures issues not showing I get stressed out and tired! Also the formulas are very stressful to find. I mostly have to go to different stores to find the exact formulas! Like what if I didn’t have a car? Come on now! Please fix this issues. The only one that doesn’t give me a hard time is the the fruits and vegetables, I like the vegetable and fruits section due to the fact it shows you how much you got to spend and go for it. I wish it was like that for bread, milk and other stuffs instead of looking for codes, names, and trying to figure out which item is which. It will be a lot helpful if everything could be like the fruit and vegetable where it shows you how much you got to spend and go with your business. Please fix and update this app. It’s not easy. Thank you
Developer Response ,
Unfortunately we don’t have near enough images in our library and it is something we constantly work on updating. We have asked retailers and manufacturers to partner with us in order to display images, however keeping images current is a huge task and requires a lot of cooperation. Unfortunately, WIC is a small part of many grocer’s business and we have had a very difficult time getting any to provide images.
The scanning feature is really fast and reliable and lets you know if the product is WIC eligible and in most states if you have enough benefits to cover it.
In regards to your formula question, we are the developers of the app and unfortunately have no control over what items are WIC eligible or the store's inventory of that item. Have you tried contacting your local WIC clinic for some suggestions on how best to find the formula you need or make changes to a different brand?
If you have any additional questions or technical issues with the app please let us know and we will be happy to help! Thank you - Josh
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!
