Laravel Paypal Integration Tutorial With Example

Last updated on May 28, 2022 by

In this article, we will learn Laravel Paypal integration tutorial with example. We will integrate the Paypal API using srmklive/laravel-paypal composer package. Using this package you can process or refund payments and handle IPN (Instant Payment Notification) from PayPal in your Laravel application. Let’s dive into it.

Step 1: Install Laravel

If you already have installed Laravel on your local machine then you can skip this step. You can easily install the fresh version of Laravel by running the below command in your terminal. You can give it any name but in this case, we will name it demo-app.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel demo-app

Step 2: Install-Package

In this step, we need to install the srmklive/laravel-paypal composer package to use its functionalities to save time. Run the below command to install the package.

For Laravel 5.1 to 5.8

cd demo-app

composer require srmklive/paypal:~2.0

For Laravel 6, 7, & 8

cd demo-app

composer require srmklive/paypal:~3.0

Step 3: Configuration

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


'providers' => [

Publish Assets

If you would like to change anything custom like config, HTML blade, etc. then you can publish the assets to do that run the below command:

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

Step 4: Create Routes

We need to add routes in routes/web.php file to Laravel Paypal send payment, receive Paypal payment, to show success message, etc. So open the routes/web.php file and add the following route.



use App\Http\Controllers\PayPalController;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

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

Step 5: Create Controller

Let’s create a PaypalController to create a controller run the below command:

php artisan make:controller PaypalController

After running the above command a new file will be created in Controllers the directory, open it, and add the following code.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

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

class PayPalController extends Controller
    public function payment()
        $data = [];

        $data['product'] = [
                'name' => 'Product 1',
                'price' => 100,
                'desc' => 'Description for Product 1',
                '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']);

    public function cancel()
        dd('Your payment is canceled. You can create cancel page here.');

    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 6: Create Blade/HTML File

Let’s create checkout.blade.php file. We will add the button for the Paypal payment gateway in this file.


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

         font-weight: 200;
         height: 100vh;
         margin: 0;
         .content {
         margin-top: 100px;
         text-align: center;
      <div class="flex-center position-ref full-height">
         <div class="content">
            <h1>Laravel PayPal Integration Tutorial - ScratchCode.IO</h1>
            <table border="0" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" align="center">
                  <td align="center"></td>
                  <td align="center"><a href="https://www.paypal.com/in/webapps/mpp/paypal-popup" title="How PayPal Works" onclick="javascript:window.open('https://www.paypal.com/in/webapps/mpp/paypal-popup','WIPaypal','toolbar=no, location=no, directories=no, status=no, menubar=no, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes, width=1060, height=700'); return false;"><img src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/mktg/Logo/pp-logo-200px.png" border="0" alt="PayPal Logo"></a></td>
            <a href="{{ route('payment') }}" class="btn btn-success">Pay $100 from Paypal</a>

Step 7: Set Environment Variables
