Cadhoc is a French gift card offered by UP.

With an value range between 20 and 250€ per card and a dense network of retail partners (15 500 points of sales), Cadhoc is a flexible and safe payment method.

The integration is very easy, as you only have to send one additional parameter along with your request. You redirect your customers to the Cadhoc payment page where they enter their gift card data (card number, expiry date and cryptogram). They can combine up to three gift cards for a single purchase and even use their credit card for the remaining amount.

It is possible to brand Cadhoc cards as "chèque lire" or "chèque culture" gift cards. Contact Thunes to make this happen.
The integration as described below remains the same for all Cadhoc cards.
