migration image

Now go to app/database/migrations/ and look for this file 2021_01_28_045936_add_mollie_customer_id_to_users_table.php. Open that file and the below code.

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class AddMollieCustomerIdToUsersTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->string('mollie_customer_id')->after('email_verified_at')->nullable();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
            //
        });
    }
}

Step: 6 Create Controller

The above command will create a controller under app/Http/Controllers

Now add the below code in your MollieController

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Mollie\Laravel\Facades\Mollie;
use Auth;
use App\Models\user;

class MollieController extends Controller
{   

    public function  __construct() 
    {
        Mollie::api()->setApiKey('test_FbVACj7UbsdkHtAUWnCnmSNGFWMuuA');
    }

    /**
     * Create Mollie Payment
     *
     * @return Response
     */
    public function createPayment()
    {   
        
        // check if customer already created or not
        $mollie_customer_id = User::where('id',Auth::user()->id)->pluck('mollie_customer_id')->first();

        if (empty($mollie_customer_id)) {
            //API to create customer
            $customer = Mollie::api()->customers->create([
                "name" => Auth::user()->name,
                "email" => Auth::user()->email,
            ]);

            $mollie_customer_id = $customer->id;

            User::where('id',Auth::user()->id)->update(['mollie_customer_id'=>$mollie_customer_id]);
        }

        // Creating Payment
        $payment = Mollie::api()->customers->get($mollie_customer_id)->createPayment([
            "amount" => [
               "currency" => "EUR",
               "value" => "1.00",
            ],
            "description" => "CodeHunger Software",
            "sequenceType" => "first",
            "redirectUrl" => route('mollie.payment.success'), // after the payment completion where you to redirect
        ]);

        $payment = Mollie::api()->payments()->get($payment->id);
        
        // redirect customer to Mollie checkout page
        return redirect($payment->getCheckoutUrl(), 303);
        
    }

    /**
     * Create Mollie Subscription
     *
     * @return Response
     */
    public function createMollieSubscription()
    {
        $mollie_customer_id = User::where('id',Auth::user()->id)->pluck('mollie_customer_id')->first();

        $customer = Mollie::api()->customers->get($mollie_customer_id);

        $subscription = $customer->createSubscription([
            "description" => "Quarterly payment",
            "interval" => "3 months",
            "amount" => [
                "currency" => "EUR",
                "value" => "25.00",
            ],
            "times" => 12,
        ]);
        dd($subscription);
    }

    /**
     * Page redirection after the successfull payment
     *
     * @return Response
     */
    public function paymentSuccess() 
    {   
        return view('mollie-success')->with('status','payment succesfully received');
    }
}

Step: 7 Add Routes

Now add the below routes in your routes/web.php file, first add namespace on the top

use App\Http\Controllers\MollieController;
//Mollie Payment
Route::get('mollie-payment-success',[MollieController::Class, 'paymentSuccess'])->name('mollie.payment.success');
Route::get('mollie-create-payment',[MollieController::Class,'createPayment'])->name('mollie.create.payment');
Route::get('create-mollie-subscription',[MollieController::Class,'createMollieSubscription'])->name('create.mollie.subscription');

Step: 8 Add Blade Files

Now create one blade file named mollie-success.blade.php under resources/views and add the below code

@extends('layouts.app')
@section('content')
<div class="pricing-header px-3 py-3 pt-md-5 pb-md-4 mx-auto text-center">
    <h1 class="display-4">Choose One Plan To Subscribe</h1>
</div>
<div class="container">
    @if (!empty($status) || Session::get('status'))
        <div class="alert alert-success alert-block">
            <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>    
            <strong>{{ $status ?? Session::get('status')}}</strong>
        </div>
    @endif
    <div class="card-deck mb-3 text-center">
      <div class="card mb-4 box-shadow">
        <div class="card-header">
          <h4 class="my-0 font-weight-normal">Free</h4>
        </div>
        <div class="card-body">
          <h1 class="card-title pricing-card-title">&#128;0 <small class="text-muted">/ mo</small></h1>
          <ul class="list-unstyled mt-3 mb-4">
            <li>10 users included</li>
            <li>2 GB of storage</li>
            <li>Email support</li>
            <li>Help center access</li>
          </ul>
          <button type="button" class="btn btn-lg btn-block btn-outline-primary">Sign up for free</button>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="card mb-4 box-shadow">
        <div class="card-header">
          <h4 class="my-0 font-weight-normal">Pro</h4>
        </div>
        <div class="card-body">
          <h1 class="card-title pricing-card-title">&#128;15 <small class="text-muted">/ mo</small></h1>
          <ul class="list-unstyled mt-3 mb-4">
            <li>20 users included</li>
            <li>10 GB of storage</li>
            <li>Priority email support</li>
            <li>Help center access</li>
          </ul>
            <a href="{{route('create.mollie.subscription')}}" class="btn btn-lg btn-block btn-primary">Get started</a>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="card mb-4 box-shadow">
        <div class="card-header">
          <h4 class="my-0 font-weight-normal">Enterprise</h4>
        </div>
        <div class="card-body">
          <h1 class="card-title pricing-card-title">&#128;29 <small class="text-muted">/ mo</small></h1>
          <ul class="list-unstyled mt-3 mb-4">
            <li>30 users included</li>
            <li>15 GB of storage</li>
            <li>Phone and email support</li>
            <li>Help center access</li>
          </ul>
            <a href="{{route('create.mollie.subscription')}}" class="btn btn-lg btn-block btn-primary">Get started</a>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
</div>
@endsection

Now go to resources/views and open home.blade.php and add the below code.

@extends('layouts.app')
@section('content')
<div class="container">
    <div class="row justify-content-center">
        <div class="col-md-8">
            <div class="card">
                <div class="card-header">{{ __('Dashboard') }}</div>

                <div class="card-body">
                    @if (session('status'))
                        <div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">
                            {{ session('status') }}
                        </div>
                    @endif

                    Please make a payment of  1 EUR 
                    <a class="btn btn-primary" href="{{route('mollie.create.payment')}}">Pay 1 EUR</a>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
@endsection

Note: To create a subscription in mollie User must have a previous payment with your portal, otherwise you have to force the user to make a small payment. I will do the same during the test.

Step: 9 Test The integration

To test the integration run the below command

php artisan serve

Now go to your browser address bar and type the below URL http://127.0.0.1:8000/

mollie start page

Now click on register and create one account.

registration page

After logged in you have screen something like below now click on payment of 1 Eur here I am trying to capture user credit card to enable subscription.

When you click on pay 1 EUR you will be redirected to mollie payment page, choose credit card and make payment.

After the payment subscription page has been enabled
