To see example code for implementing gift cards on iOS, refer to our GitHub
On this page, you can find additional configuration for adding gift cards to your iOS Drop-in integration.
Before you begin
This page assumes you have already:
- Built an iOS Drop-in integration.
You can test a limited number of gift card variants and simulate gift card payments. When testing, you use a simulator that tries to behave and respond in the same way as an end-to-end connection with a gift card provider. Before you go live, you must onboard with a gift card provider and add the gift card variant to your live Customer Area.
You don't need to send additional fields for gift cards. To see optional fields that you can send for all payment methods, choose the endpoint you integrated:
- /sessions: This is the default with Drop-in v5.0.0 or later.
- /payments: If you implemented an additional use case.
Select which endpoint you're integrating:
This is the default with Drop-in v5.0.0 or later.
There is no required gift card specific integration for iOS Drop-in.
Test and go live
Before making live gift card payments, simulate transactions:
Test your integration using our test card numbers depending on your gift card provider. When testing, you use a simulator that tries to behave and respond in the same way as an end-to-end connection.
To simulate a scenario, send one of the following amounts in the test payment request:
Amount (last three digits)
100 Authorised 123 Refused Refused 124 Refused Not enough balance 125 Refused Blocked Card 126 Refused Expired Card 130 Error Acquirer Error 134 Refused Invalid Pin 135 Refused Pin tries exceeded
For example, send a payment amount with 100 as the last three digits, such as 1.00 or 11.00. This will result in an Authorised transaction.
Check the status of test payments in your test Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.
When you are ready to go live:
- Onboard with a gift card provider and add the gift card variant to your live Customer Area.
You can test end-to-end scenarios in your live environment using real gift card details and small amounts.
