<h2><strong>PHP - Paypal Payment Gateway Integration</strong></h2>


<div class="row">

<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-6 col-md-3 col-md-offset-4 col-lg-3">

<!-- PRICE ITEM -->

<form action="<?php echo $paypalUrl; ?>" method="post" name="frmPayPal1">

<div class="panel price panel-red">

<input type="hidden" name="business" value="<?php echo $paypalId; ?>">

<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">

<div class="panel-heading text-center">

<h3>PRO PLAN</h3>


<div class="panel-body text-center">

<p class="lead" style="font-size:40px"><strong>$20 / month</strong></p>


<ul class="list-group list-group-flush text-center">

<li class="list-group-item"><i class="icon-ok text-danger"></i> Personal use</li>

<li class="list-group-item"><i class="icon-ok text-danger"></i> Unlimited projects</li>

<li class="list-group-item"><i class="icon-ok text-danger"></i> 27/7 support</li>


<div class="panel-footer">

<button class="btn btn-lg btn-block btn-danger" href="#">BUY NOW!</button>




<!-- /PRICE ITEM -->






Step 3: Create Success File

Now we have to create success.php file for get Paypal transaction ID when payment will successfully then it will return here. that way we can identify payment is done or not so, create new file success.php.


$itemNo = $_REQUEST['item_number'];

$itemTransaction = $_REQUEST['tx']; // Paypal transaction ID

$itemPrice = $_REQUEST['amt']; // Paypal received amount

$itemCurrency = $_REQUEST['cc']; // Paypal received currency type

$price = '20.00';


if($itemPrice==$price && $itemCurrency==$currency)


echo "Payment Successful";




echo "Payment Failed";


Step 4: Create Cancel File

We also need to create cancel.php file because when paypal transaction will be cancel then it will redirect on this file.


echo "Payment Canceled";

Step 5: Paypal URL

It is complete for our sendbox with paypal integration but when you live this then you have to change $paypalId and $paypalUrl.




I hope it can help you...
