* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function cancel()


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

$response = $provider->getExpressCheckoutDetails($request->token);

if (in_array(strtoupper($response['ACK']), ['SUCCESS', 'SUCCESSWITHWARNING'])) {

dd('Your payment was successfully. You can create success page here.');
