Steps to install GigWage Package

  • To install the stable release, run the following command in the project directory:

      $ composer require bmcfarlin/gigwage-php-sdk
  • To install a specific release, run the following command in the project directory:

      $ composer require bmcfarlin/gigwage-php-sdk:1.0.0
  • Alternatively, you can download this source and run

      $ composer install

This generates the autoload files, which you can include using the following line in your PHP source code to start using the SDK.

require 'vendor/autoload.php'

Getting started


To make the API requests, you need to create a Client and provide it with authentication credentials (which can be found at

We recommend that you store your credentials in the GIGWAGE_API_KEY, GIGWAGE_API_SECRET and the GIGWAGE_API_URL environment variables, so as to avoid the possibility of accidentally committing them to source control. If you do this, you can initialise the client with no arguments and it will automatically fetch them from the environment variables:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GigWage\Client;

$client = new Client();

Alternatively, you can specifiy the authentication credentials while initializing the Client.

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GigWage\Client;

$client = new Client("your_api_key", "your_api_secret", "your_gigwage_url");

The Basics

The SDK uses consistent interfaces to create, retrieve, update, delete and list resources. The pattern followed is as follows:

$client->resources->create($params) # Create
$client->resources->get($id) # Get
$client->resources->update($id, $params) # Update
$client->resources->delete($id) # Delete
$client->resources->list() # List all resources, max 200 at a time

Also, using $client->resources->list() would list the first 200 resources by default (which is the first page, with size as 200, and page as 1). To get more, you will have to use size and page to get the second page of resources.


List Contractors

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GigWage\Client;

$client = new Client();
$json = $client->contractor->list();

Create a batch

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GigWage\Client;

$client = new RestClient();
$payments = [];
$json = $client->contractor->list();
$item = json_decode($json);
foreach($item->contractors as $contractor){
  $debit_card = false;
  $line_items = [['amount' => 15.00, 'reason' => 'Testing', 'reimbursement' => false]];
  $payment = ['contractor_id' => $contractor->id, 'debit_card' => $debit_card, 'line_items' => $line_items];
  $payments[] = $payment;
$data = ['payments' => $payments];
$data['nonce'] = hash('sha256', json_encode($data));
$json = $client->batch->create($data);

Transfer funds

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GigWage\Client;

$amount = 1000.00;
$direction = 'fund';
$data = ['amount' => $amount, 'direction' => $direction];
$data['nonce'] = hash('sha256', json_encode($data));
$json = $client->transfer->create($data);
