It is time to create the tables and models that will allow us to easily represent and use related information about the types of currency and payment platforms that the Laravel project will support

Creating the essential models and tables for the payment platform

It is time to insert the main payment platforms to support (PayPal and Stripe) together with the main currencies (EUR, GBP, USD)

Preparing the payment platform and filling the database from Laravel

Time to check that everything is clear, before continuing to the next section.

Laravel UI is a Laravel package that will allow you to quickly generate visual components that you will use in the course.

Adding laravel/ui to build some visual components

In this class, you will take advantage of Laravel UI to get those visual components to use.

Generating visual components with laravel/ui

The components generated by Laravel UI work quite well, except that the styles are not there. So, it's time to put those styles and see how magically everything takes shape.

Improving and using the components generated with Laravel UI

Now that all our views are using the same layout, we can add components that show success or error messages throughout the application.

The first field to implement in this component (a form) will be the one that contains the total value of the transaction. Of course, it can be randomly generated for ease.

Creating a form with random amounts using Bootstrap in Laravel

Each transaction to be created can have a different currency type, so we will show the list of currencies supported by the platform through the Currency model in Laravel.

Showing the types of currency available to process a payment

Finally, you should now allow choosing between the supported platforms, according to your PaymentPlatform model.

Showing the available payment platforms with Laravel and Bootstrap

Each payment platform may require additional fields (such as Stripe), so in this class, you will give the form that ability to show or not certain fields according to the user's choice.

Allowing to customize the form for each payment platform

It is time to connect the form with Laravel. So, when you click on "Pay", Laravel receives the necessary information, to start processing the payment later.

Adding the actions to process a payment on the platform with Laravel

Make sure that the reason why we have created this form is clear.

Make sure you understand the reasons behind the created form

Guzzle HTTP is a very useful library to send HTTP requests from PHP (and therefore Laravel). In this class, you will add it to the Laravel project using composer.

Adding GuzzleHTTP to Laravel to consume HTTP APIs

Now that you have Guzzle, it is time to create a generic component to use Guzzle and allow you to send any type of request, in addition to authorizing and decoding them accordingly for each service to be used.

Creating a component to use any API of the payment platforms
+ Preparing Laravel to use PayPal as a payment platform

Before you can use the PayPal API from Laravel, you need test accounts that allow you to act as a buyer or business that will receive money from a payment made with PayPal. Of course, they will be test accounts for the PayPal sandbox.

Creating PayPal test accounts to send and receive payments

To consume the API, we need access credentials and you will get it with a PayPal application, which will be associated with a business account.

Creating a PayPal application to consume your API from Laravel

Once you have PayPal credentials, it's time to set up the online payment processing system with Laravel,

Configuring the payment platform in Laravel to use the PayPal API

It is time to create a component (a class) that represents the PayPal service in the payment processing platform with Laravel.

+ Implementing the necessary actions in Laravel to use the PayPal API

The first step in using the PayPal API from Laravel is to authenticate correctly with the configured credentials and decode the responses obtained in JSON. That is what you will see in this class. In addition to seeing how everything works together.

Decoding and authenticating requests to the PayPal API

You have already seen that you can send valid requests to the PayPal API. Now is the time to give PayPal the ability to create orders (directly using the API) to the service created.

Creating an order in the PayPal API for a given amount and currency

Now that you can create orders using the PayPal API, it's time to see how to capture them, also through an API request. All after payment approval.

Capturing a payment of an order given in Laravel with the PayPal API

At this point, the PayPal service you created can create and capture orders in PayPal. It is time to communicate this with the created form so that the orders created correspond to what a user indicates.

Controlling from Laravel the creation of an order using PayPal

Now that the order has been created and the user has been directed to the corresponding approval flow, it is time to capture that order and complete the payment processing.

We still have to implement a possible alternative flow, which corresponds to the case in which the user cancels the payment process at some point.

Implementing the payment cancellation flow for any platform

There exist some currencies which do not allow decimal positions. During this class, I will show you one and how to deal with it.

Considering zero-decimal currencies

During this class, you will create the component that will be in charge of resolving the service related to a payment platform.

Creating a component that solves a payment platform dynamically

Once you have the component that knows the possible payment platforms to use. It is time to give you the ability to resolve the associated service according to what the user requires.

Resolving the payment platform service according to the user's choice
+ Preparing the project to use Stripe as an additional payment platform
4 lectures 14:54

First of all, it is important to have an account in Stripe. In that way, you can obtain the credentials to access their API and monitor the operations of this account.

Creating an account in Stripe for use with the payment platform

Now that you have your account in Stripe, it is time to get the credentials that will give you access to your API.

Obtaining access credentials to use the Stripe API from Laravel

Once you have the credentials to access the Stripe API, it is time to configure and use it from Laravel, along with the base URL to use.

Configuring the payment platform with Laravel to use Stripe

Finally! Now you are going to create the service that will know how to send requests to the Stripe API, using the configured credentials and base URL.

+ Adding the essential elements in Laravel to start charging with Stripe
3 lectures 20:51

The first step in consuming the Stripe API is to know how to authorize requests and decode responses.

Decoding and authenticating Stripe API requests

Before you can create an intent with Stripe, it is necessary to capture the data from the user's payment method, all using the Stripe JavaScript library.

Requesting a payment method to make payments with Stripe from Laravel

Now that you have the payment method data, to avoid touching the backend with Laravel and complying with the SCA policies, you must resolve a token given by Stripe, which represents that payment method.

Obtaining a token that represents the payment method in Stripe
  • Have PHP installed and functional in your system (at least PHP 7.3 is recommended)
  • Have composer installed and functional in your development environment
  • Recommended, PHP basic skills
  • Everything else I will teach you how to implement it

Learn to integrate multiple payment platforms at once in the same Laravel project, using as an example the most popular payment gateways (PayPal and Stripe).

Do you want to start receiving payments on your existing projects?

Me too. And in this course, I teach you how to achieve it without getting crazy in the process, using Laravel.

Process payments with Laravel and the best payment platforms.
