In this tutorial, we will use srmklive package for laravel PayPal integrate into laravel 6. you just need to follow a few steps to get done payment integration in PHP laravel 6.

Step 1: Install Laravel 7/6

We are going from scratch so, If you haven’t installed laravel in your system then you can run the bellow command and get a fresh Laravel project.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Install Composer Package

Now we require to install the srmklive/PayPal package for PayPal integration, that way we can use its method. So Open your terminal and run the below command.

composer require srmklive/paypal

Now open the config/app.php file and add the service provider and alias.


'providers' => [....Srmklive\PayPal\Providers\PayPalServiceProvider::class]....

We can also custom changes on the srmklive/PayPal package, so if you also want to changes then you can fire the bellow command and get the config file in config/paypal.php.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider "Srmklive\PayPal\Providers\PayPalServiceProvider"

You can view the paypal.php file below:


<?php/*** PayPal Setting & API Credentials* Created by Raza Mehdi .*/return ['mode'    => env('PAYPAL_MODE', 'sandbox')'sandbox' => ['username'    => env('PAYPAL_SANDBOX_API_USERNAME', ''),'password'    => env('PAYPAL_SANDBOX_API_PASSWORD', ''),'secret'      => env('PAYPAL_SANDBOX_API_SECRET', ''),'certificate' => env('PAYPAL_SANDBOX_API_CERTIFICATE', ''),'app_id'      => 'APP-80W284485P519543T',],'live' => ['username'    => env('PAYPAL_LIVE_API_USERNAME', ''),'password'    => env('PAYPAL_LIVE_API_PASSWORD', ''),'secret'      => env('PAYPAL_LIVE_API_SECRET', ''),'certificate' => env('PAYPAL_LIVE_API_CERTIFICATE', ''),'app_id'      => '',],'payment_action' => 'Sale','currency'       => env('PAYPAL_CURRENCY', 'USD'),'billing_type'   => 'MerchantInitiatedBilling','notify_url'     => '','locale'         => '','validate_ssl'   => false,];

Step 3: Add Routes

Here, we need to add a resource route for the PayPal payment gateway. so open your “routes/web.php” file and add the following route.


Route::get('payment', 'PayPalController@payment')->name('payment');
Route::get('cancel', 'PayPalController@cancel')->name('payment.cancel');
Route::get('payment/success', 'PayPalController@success')->name('payment.success');

Step 4: Create Controller

In this step, now we should create a new controller as PayPalController. So run the below command and create a new controller. bellow controller for creating with some methods.

php artisan make:controller PayPalController

After the bellow command, you will find a new file in this path “app/Http/Controllers/PayPalController.php”.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Srmklive\PayPal\Services\ExpressCheckout;

class PayPalController extends Controller
* Responds with a welcome message with instructions
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
public function payment()
$data = [];
$data['items'] = [
'name' => 'raviyatechnical',
'price' => 100,
'desc' => 'Description for raviyatechnical',
'qty' => 1

$data['invoice_id'] = 1;
$data['invoice_description'] = "Order #{$data['invoice_id']} Invoice";
$data['return_url'] = route('payment.success');
$data['cancel_url'] = route('payment.cancel');
$data['total'] = 100;

$provider = new ExpressCheckout;

$response = $provider->setExpressCheckout($data);

$response = $provider->setExpressCheckout($data, true);

return redirect($response['paypal_link']);

* Responds with a welcome message with instructions
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
public function cancel()
dd('Your payment is canceled. You can create cancel page here.');

* Responds with a welcome message with instructions
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
public function success(Request $request)
$response = $provider->getExpressCheckoutDetails($request->token);

if (in_array(strtoupper($response['ACK']), ['SUCCESS', 'SUCCESSWITHWARNING'])) {
dd('Your payment was successfully. You can create success page here.');

dd('Something is wrong.');

Step 5: Create View File

In this step, we need to update the welcome.blade.php file. in this file, we will put one button for the PayPal payment gateway. so let’s put bellow code:


<!doctype html>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<a href="{{ route('payment') }}" class="btn btn-success">Pay $100 from Paypal</a>
