Step : 6 Create PaypalController

Now create PaypalController.php file in app/Http/Controllers folder like this way.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Http\Requests;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator;
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\ItemList;
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('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('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('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('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('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('paywithpaypal');
        \Session::put('error','Payment failed');

		return Redirect::route('paywithpaypal');

Step : 7 Create view file

Now, we are create one resources/views/paywithpaypal.blade.php for display paypal form


<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">
                                    Paywith Paypal
