The PHP Function
// This function makes the equivalent of the cURL call below:
// curl -v<200b> https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token \
//   -H "Accept: application/json" \
//   -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \
//   -u "Aa-VzaSh4zdUsmWcsOcVQjzOwwU_Scner8VflNO37xKF2PgCWc0JSbB-mxOdCbMHEAeS0irwWv4xmYxE" \
//   -d "grant_type=client_credentials"
function get_access_token() {

        $ch       = curl_init();

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,            "https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token");
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER,         false);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST,           true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD,        env('PAYPAL_CLIENT_ID') . ":" . env('PAYPAL_SECRET')   );
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,     "grant_type=client_credentials");

        $result = curl_exec($ch);
        $err    = curl_error($ch);

        if ($err) {  echo "cURL Error #:" . $err; }
        else      {
                $json         = json_decode($result);
                $access_token = $json->access_token;


        return json_decode( $result )->access_token;

Edit this line:

  • curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD,        env('PAYPAL_CLIENT_ID') . ":" . env('PAYPAL_SECRET')   );

To include your application's client ID and secret key.
