use URL;

use Session;

use Redirect;

use Input;

/** All Paypal Details class **/

use PayPal\Rest\ApiContext;

use PayPal\Auth\OAuthTokenCredential;

use PayPal\Api\Amount;

use PayPal\Api\Details;

use PayPal\Api\Item;

use PayPal\Api\Payer;

use PayPal\Api\Payment;

use PayPal\Api\RedirectUrls;

use PayPal\Api\ExecutePayment;

use PayPal\Api\PaymentExecution;

use PayPal\Api\Transaction;

class AddMoneyController extends HomeController


private $_api_context;


* Create a new controller instance.


* @return void


public function __construct()



/** setup PayPal api context **/

$paypal_conf = \Config::get('paypal');

$this->_api_context = new ApiContext(new OAuthTokenCredential($paypal_conf['client_id'], $paypal_conf['secret']));




* Show the application paywith paypalpage.


* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function payWithPaypal()


return view('paywithpaypal');



* Store a details of payment with paypal.


* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function postPaymentWithpaypal(Request $request)


$payer = new Payer();


$item_1 = new Item();

$item_1->setName('Item 1') /** item name **/



->setPrice($request->get('amount')); /** unit price **/

$item_list = new ItemList();


$amount = new Amount();



$transaction = new Transaction();



->setDescription('Your transaction description');

$redirect_urls = new RedirectUrls();

$redirect_urls->setReturnUrl(URL::route('payment.status')) /** Specify return URL **/


$payment = new Payment();





/** dd($payment->create($this->_api_context));exit; **/

try {


} catch (\PayPal\Exception\PPConnectionException $ex) {

if (\Config::get('app.debug')) {

\Session::put('error','Connection timeout');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');

/** echo "Exception: " . $ex->getMessage() . PHP_EOL; **/

/** $err_data = json_decode($ex->getData(), true); **/

/** exit; **/

} else {

\Session::put('error','Some error occur, sorry for inconvenient');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');

/** die('Some error occur, sorry for inconvenient'); **/



foreach($payment->getLinks() as $link) {

if($link->getRel() == 'approval_url') {

$redirect_url = $link->getHref();




/** add payment ID to session **/

Session::put('paypal_payment_id', $payment->getId());

if(isset($redirect_url)) {

/** redirect to paypal **/

return Redirect::away($redirect_url);


\Session::put('error','Unknown error occurred');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');


public function getPaymentStatus()


/** Get the payment ID before session clear **/

$payment_id = Session::get('paypal_payment_id');

/** clear the session payment ID **/


if (empty(Input::get('PayerID')) || empty(Input::get('token'))) {

\Session::put('error','Payment failed');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');


$payment = Payment::get($payment_id, $this->_api_context);

/** PaymentExecution object includes information necessary **/

/** to execute a PayPal account payment. **/

/** The payer_id is added to the request query parameters **/

/** when the user is redirected from paypal back to your site **/

$execution = new PaymentExecution();


/**Execute the payment **/

$result = $payment->execute($execution, $this->_api_context);

/** dd($result);exit; /** DEBUG RESULT, remove it later **/

if ($result->getState() == 'approved') {

/** it's all right **/

/** Here Write your database logic like that insert record or value in database if you want **/

\Session::put('success','Payment success');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');


\Session::put('error','Payment failed');

return Redirect::route('addmoney.paywithpaypal');



Step 7: Create View

In Last step, let's create paywithpaypal.blade.php(resources/views/paywithpaypal.blade.php) for layout and we will write design code here and also form for pay amount by paypal, So put following code:




<div class="container">

<div class="row">

<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">

<div class="panel panel-default">

@if ($message = Session::get('success'))

<div class="custom-alerts alert alert-success fade in">

<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true"></button>

{!! $message !!}


<?php Session::forget('success');?>


@if ($message = Session::get('error'))

<div class="custom-alerts alert alert-danger fade in">

<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true"></button>

{!! $message !!}


<?php Session::forget('error');?>


<div class="panel-heading">Paywith Paypal</div>

<div class="panel-body">

<form class="form-horizontal" method="POST" id="payment-form" role="form" action="{!! URL::route('addmoney.paypal') !!}" >

{{ csrf_field() }}

<div class="form-group{{ $errors->has('amount') ? ' has-error' : '' }}">

<label for="amount" class="col-md-4 control-label">Amount</label>

<div class="col-md-6">

<input id="amount" type="text" class="form-control" name="amount" value="{{ old('amount') }}" autofocus>

@if ($errors->has('amount'))

<span class="help-block">

<strong>{{ $errors->first('amount') }}</strong>





<div class="form-group">

<div class="col-md-6 col-md-offset-4">

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">
