In this tutorial we will learn how to integrate stripe payment gateway in laravel.

Integrating Stripe payment gateway in Laravel involves a few steps:


Step 1- Install the Stripe PHP library: To use Stripe in Laravel, you'll need to install the Stripe PHP library via Composer. Run the following command in your terminal:

composer require stripe/stripe-php


Step 2 - Set up your Stripe account: If you haven't already, sign up for a Stripe account at Once you have created an account, you can obtain your API keys from the dashboard.


Step 3 - Add your Stripe API keys to your Laravel environment variables: In your .env file, add the following lines, replacing the placeholders with your actual API keys:



Step 4 - Create a Stripe payment form: In your view, create a form that collects the necessary payment information, such as the amount and the customer's card details. For example:

<form action="/charge" method="post">
    <div class="form-group">
        <label for="amount">Amount:</label>
        <input type="text" id="amount" name="amount" class="form-control">
    <div class="form-group">
        <label for="card-element">Credit or debit card:</label>
        <div id="card-element">
            <!-- A Stripe Element will be inserted here. -->
    <button class="btn btn-primary">Pay Now</button>

In this example, we're using Stripe Elements to create a secure payment form. You can learn more about Stripe Elements in the Stripe documentation.


Step 5 - Handle the payment on the server: In your controller, create a method to handle the payment. This method will use the Stripe PHP library to create a charge using the payment information submitted in the form. For example:

use Stripe\Charge;
use Stripe\Customer;
use Stripe\Stripe;

public function charge(Request $request)

    $customer = Customer::create([
        'email' => $request->input('email'),
        'source' => $request->input('stripeToken'),

    $charge = Charge::create([
        'customer' => $customer->id,
        'amount' => $request->input('amount'),
        'currency' => 'usd',

    // Do something with the $charge object, such as store it in your database.

    return view('payment.success');

In this example, we're using the `Stripe::setApiKey()` method to set the API key for Stripe. We then create a customer object using the customer's email and Stripe token (generated by Stripe Elements). Finally, we create a charge object using the customer's ID and the payment amount.


That's it! By following these steps, you can integrate Stripe payment gateway in Laravel and start accepting payments on your website.
