18app and Carta Docente
Bonus culture and education
If you are a business owner and want to integrate with the platform for validating the coupons, here you can find documentation and SDKs.
18app and Carta Docente are two financial bonuses (500€) targeted at particular categories (18 years old people and school teachers) that can be spent in the accredited stores for buying goods and services.
Users enter with their SPID digital identity into a web application that allows them to create coupons (identified by an alphanumeric code and a QR code) of arbitrary amounts, that can be later spent in the accredited stores, which can be either physical or online. At the payment stage, merchants verify that the supplied coupon is valid and subtract their value from the due amount. They will emit an invoice to the State in order to be reimbursed.
In order to validate a coupon, merchants can use a simple web form or can leverage an API in order to build an integration directly from their payment software.
