  • Use the following command to install:
composer require obydul/laraskrill
  • Laravel 5.5 uses package auto-discovery, so doesn't require you to manually add the ServiceProvider. If you don't use auto-discovery, add the service provider to your $providers array in config/app.php file like:
  • Run the following command to publish configuration:
php artisan vendor:publish
  • Then choose 'Obydul\LaraSkrill\LaraSkrillServiceProvider':


Installation completed.


  • After installation, you will need to configure laraskrill. Following is the code you will find in config/laraskrill.php, which you should update accordingly.
return [
    'merchant_email' => 'demoqco@sun-fish.com',
    'api_password' => 'MD5 API/MQI password', // required for refund option only.
    'return_url' => 'RETURN URL',
    'cancel_url' => 'CANCEL URL',
    'status_url' => 'IPN URL or Email', // url or email
    'status_url2' => 'IPN URL or Email', // url or email (you can keep this blank)
    'refund_status_url' => 'IPN URL or Email', // url or email (only for refund, you can keep this blank)
    'logo_url' => 'WEBSITE LOGO',
  • Now clear config cache: php artisan config:cache. You can also clear cache: php artisan cache:clear.
  • Still if there is a problem in your Laravel project, the config config/laraskrill.php may not work. At this situation you can try by entering API Credentials at YourProject/vendor/obydul/laraskrill/config/config.php.

API/MQI password

In your Skrill account, go to Settings > Developer Settings > Change MQI/API password.

API/MQI password

// Create object instance
$request = new SkrillRequest();
$client = new SkrillClient($request);
