Any business project cannot be said to be complete until you are able to sell it. To make the sale, you should be able to receive the payment. 

There are two types of payment that are mostly used in any business project:

  • Single payment: A single payment is what needs to be made only once. For example, making a payment to purchase through an ecommerce website. 
  • Recurring payment: A recurring payment is that which you have to make more than once in a particular period of time. For example, subscribing to web hosting services for a website.

In this blog, I will tell you how you can implement the recurring payment process in laravel. The blog will focus on implementing the stripe payment.

If you are into web development, this blog will be a very handy guide. You might also want to check out how you can set up stripe connect marketplace account

Let's get started. 

Implementing Recurring Payments with Stripe

Step 1: Install Laravel Fresh Project

To begin, use the command below to install Laravel as a new application, then open your command prompt and run it:

Composer create-project –prefer-dist laravel/laravel stripeRecurringPayment

Step 2: Install the Stripe package

composer requires catalyst/stripe-laravel 

After that, you need to register the provider and aliases. Go to the app/config/app.php and enter the lines below:

‘providers’ => [




‘aliases’ => [


 ‘Stripe' => CartalystStripeLaravelFacadesStripe::class 


Step 3: Set Secret Credential

Now open the .env file and set the secret credential provided by a stripe payment gateway.



In the next step, you need to set up the Stripe API key. To do this, open or create the config/services.php file and add or update the ‘stripe' array:




‘stripe' => [

     ‘secret' => env(‘STRIPE_SECRET'),


Step 4: Make Route

 Route::get(‘stripe', ‘StripeController@index');

 Route::post(‘store', ‘StripeController@store');

Step 5: Create Controller

In this step, you need to create the controller name StripeController using the below command.

php artisan make: controller StripeController

Go to app/Http/Controller/StripeController and enter the below code:


namespace AppHttpControllers;

use IlluminateHttpRequest;

use Session;

use Stripe;

class StripeController extends Controller



   * success response method.


   * @return IlluminateHttpResponse


  public function stripe()


    return view(‘stripe');



   * success response method.


   * @return IlluminateHttpResponse


  public function stripePost(Request $request)



    //create customer

    $customer = StripeCustomer::create([

      ‘name' => ‘your name',

      ‘address' => [

        ‘line1' => ‘your address',

        ‘postal_code' => ‘your postal code',

        ‘city' => ‘Your City,

        ‘state' => ‘Your State Code',

        ‘country' => ‘Your Country Code',


      'email' => ‘your email',

      ‘source' => $request->stripeToken


    $stripe = new StripeStripeClient(



    $customer_id = $customer->id;

    //create product

    $product = $stripe->products->create([

      ‘name' => ‘Diamond',

      ‘id'   => ‘123',

      ‘metadata' => [

        ‘name' => “silver”,

        ‘last-date' => '30-7-2021′



    $product_id = $product->id;

    //define product price and recurring interval

    $price = $stripe->prices->create([

      ‘unit_amount' => 2000,

      ‘currency' => ‘usd',

      ‘recurring' => [‘interval' => ‘month'],

      ‘product' => $product_id,


    $price_id = $price->id;


    $subscription = $stripe->subscriptions->create([

      ‘customer' => $customer_id,

      ‘items' => [

        [‘price' => $price_id],


      ‘metadata' => [

        ‘start_date' => '30-7-2021′,

        ‘total_months' => '11',

        ‘end_date' => '30-5-2022′



    Session::flash(‘success', ‘Payment successful!');

    return back();



In the above example, you can see that there are basically three things that are done with the stripe code.

  • Creating customers
  • Creating a recurring product
  • Creating a subscription and assigning that subscription to the above-created customer with the above-created product. 

How to Create a Blade View File?

To create a frontend view, you can simply use the Stripe code, which shows the popup form and a form to store all the required information. 

To create a blade views file, go to app/resources/views/ and create one file named stripe.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>



<meta charset=”UTF-8″>

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0″>

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”ie=edge”>

<meta name=”csrf-token” content=”{{ csrf_token() }}”>

How to Start Development Server?

In this step, you can use the php artisan serve command. It will start your server locally.

php artisan serve

Testing Card Credential

Card No: 4242424242424242

Month: any future month

Year: any future Year

CVV: 123

And there you have it. Use your demo stripe keys to test the payment process.

Now, you can use these simple steps and implement this recurring payment process on your own. 

To access the full code you can download it from my git repo.
