Express Checkout is a fast and very easy way for buyer to pay for the product they are buying.

In our previous blog post we have covered the PayPal Integration in PHP Using PDO using which you can sell products via PayPal securely without SDK.

But in this post we will be doing same task using PayPal PHP SDK with Express Checkout, which will help to collect more user information entered at the time of purchase.

According to PayPal adding the Express Checkout button to your website can increase your sales up to 18 percent.

Note: Install.txt file is given in the download folder

 


Project Integartion

In our last post we have seen how to get Paypal App Id and App Secret, which is necessary to access PayPal PHP SDK.

Follow that post to learn how to get the credentials and put it in bootstrap.php file of this project to setup the required settings.

Then you will be ready to run the project. You can also refer the install.txt file given in download code folder.

 


PayPal Review Page Order Details

When a buyer logs in to PayPal to check out, you can present the buyer with detailed information about the item being purchased. PayPal order details are available with API version 53.0 or later.

The following diagram shows all of the details that you can include:

  1. Showing company/application logo
  2. Product name
  3. Showing Product prize
  4. Showing product quantity
  5. Total payable amount.

 


Tutorial Scripts in detail:

Below are the details of the code used in this tutorial with proper explanation.

MY-SQL Code

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `tbl_product_detail` (
`product_id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`item_number` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`product_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`product_img` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`product_price` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`product_currency` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`product_dec` text NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`product_id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=4 ;

Note : When you will create database tables then you have to store the product information.

 

Connection.php

This is the file used for database connectivity. It is used for making connection variable by PDO (PHP Data Objects).

<?php
function connection_open() {
// Database credential
$servername = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "";
//Data base name
$dbname = "express_chekout";
try {
global $conn;
// Open the connection using PDO.
$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$servername;dbname=$dbname", $username, $password);
// set the PDO error mode to exception
$conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
} catch (PDOException $e) {
// echo $sql . "<br>" . $e->getMessage();
die();
}
}
function connection_close() {
global $conn;
$conn = null;
}
?>

 

Function.php

This file contains all required function for database operation.

<?php
//This function is used for fetching all the records from the table
function Select_All_Records($table_name) {
global $conn;
$sql = "select * from $table_name";
try {
$stmt = $conn->query($sql);
return $stmt;
} catch (PDOException $e) {
print $e->getMessage();
}
}
//This function is used for fetching record with one Filter.
function Select_Record_By_One_Filter($data,$table_name){
global $conn;
$key = array_keys($data);
$value = array_values($data);
$sql = "select * from $table_name where $key[0] = '$value[0]'";
try {
$stmt = $conn->query($sql);
return $stmt;
} catch (PDOException $e) {
print $e->getMessage();
}
}
?>

 

Bootstrap.php

This file help to load and connect PayPal PHP SDK with your application.

<?php
// Include the composer Autoloader
// The location of your project's vendor autoloader.
$composerAutoload = 'PayPal-PHP-SDK/autoload.php';
if (!file_exists($composerAutoload)) {
//If the project is used as its own project, it would use rest-api-sdk-php composer autoloader.
$composerAutoload = 'PayPal-PHP-SDK/vendor/autoload.php';
if (!file_exists($composerAutoload)) {
echo "The 'vendor' folder is missing. You must run 'composer update' to resolve application dependencies.\nPlease see the README for more information.\n";
exit(1);
}
}
require $composerAutoload;
require __DIR__ . '/common.php';

use PayPal\Rest\ApiContext;
use PayPal\Auth\OAuthTokenCredential;

error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', '1');

// Replace these values by entering your own ClientId and Secret by visiting https://developer.paypal.com/webapps/developer/applications/myapps
$clientId = 'Your PayPal App Id';
$clientSecret = 'Your PayPal App Secret';
$mode = 'sandbox';

/** @var \Paypal\Rest\ApiContext $apiContext */
$apiContext = getApiContext($clientId, $clientSecret);

return $apiContext;

function getApiContext($clientId, $clientSecret) {

// ### Api context
// Use an ApiContext object to authenticate
// API calls. The clientId and clientSecret for the
// OAuthTokenCredential class can be retrieved from
// developer.paypal.com

$apiContext = new ApiContext(
new OAuthTokenCredential(
$clientId, $clientSecret
)
);

// Comment this line out and uncomment the PP_CONFIG_PATH
// 'define' block if you want to use static file
// based configuration
global $mode;
$apiContext->setConfig(
array(
'mode' => $mode,
'log.LogEnabled' => true,
'log.FileName' => '../PayPal.log',
'log.LogLevel' => 'DEBUG', // PLEASE USE `FINE` LEVEL FOR LOGGING IN LIVE ENVIRONMENTS
'validation.level' => 'log',
'cache.enabled' => true,

);

// Partner Attribution Id
// Use this header if you are a PayPal partner. Specify a unique BN Code to receive revenue attribution.
// To learn more or to request a BN Code, contact your Partner Manager or visit the PayPal Partner Portal
// $apiContext->addRequestHeader('PayPal-Partner-Attribution-Id', '123123123');
return $apiContext;
}

// ### Payer
// A resource representing a Payer that funds a payment
// For paypal account payments, set payment method
// to 'paypal'.

// (Optional) Lets you specify item wise
// information

Success.php

PayPal calls this file when payment gets successfully completed and provide detailed transaction information as response in json format.

// ### Payment Execute
// 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();
$execution->setPayerId($_GET['PayerID']);
$result = $payment->execute($execution, $apiContext);
