PHP client wrapping the QuickBooks PHP SDK.

We solely use Laravel for our applications, so this package is written with Laravel in mind. If there is a request from the community to split this package into 2 parts to allow it to be used outside of Laravel, then we will consider doing that work.

  1. Install QuickBooks PHP Client:
$ composer require spinen/laravel-quickbooks-client
  1. Run our migration to install the quickbooks_tokens table:
$ php artisan migrate --package=spinen/laravel-quickbooks-client

The package uses the auto registration feature of Laravel.


  1. You will need a quickBooksToken relationship on your User model. There is a trait named Spinen\QuickBooks\HasQuickBooksToken, which you can include on your User model, which will setup the relationship. To do this implement the following:

Add use Spinen\QuickBooks\HasQuickBooksToken; to your service container at the top of User.php and also add the trait within the class. For example:

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable, HasQuickBooksToken;

NOTE: If your User model is not App/User, then you will need to configure the path in the configs/quickbooks.php as documented below.

  1. Add the appropriate values to your .env

    Minimal Keys

    QUICKBOOKS_CLIENT_ID=<client id given by QuickBooks>
    QUICKBOOKS_CLIENT_SECRET=<client secret>

    Optional Keys

    QUICKBOOKS_API_URL=<Development|Production> # Defaults to App's env value
    QUICKBOOKS_DEBUG=<true|false>               # Defaults to App's debug value
  2. [Optional] Publish configs & views


    A configuration file named quickbooks.php can be published to config/ by running...

    php artisan vendor:publish --tag=quickbooks-config


    View files can be published by running...

    php artisan vendor:publish --tag=quickbooks-views


Here is an example of getting the company information from QuickBooks:

NOTE: Before doing these commands, go to your connect route (default: /quickbooks/connect) to get a QuickBooks token for your user

php artisan tinker
Psy Shell v0.8.17 (PHP 7.1.14 — cli) by Justin Hileman
>>> Auth::logInUsingId(1)
=> App\User {#1668
     id: 1,
     // Other keys removed for example
>>> $quickbooks = app('Spinen\QuickBooks\Client') // or app('QuickBooks')
=> Spinen\QuickBooks\Client {#1613}
>>> $quickbooks->getDataService()->getCompanyInfo();
=> QuickBooksOnline\API\Data\IPPCompanyInfo {#1673
     +CompanyName: "Sandbox Company_US_1",
     +LegalName: "Sandbox Company_US_1",
     // Other properties removed for example

You can call any of the resources as documented in the SDK.


If you have routes that will be dependent on the user's account having a usable QuickBooks OAuth token, there is an included middleware Spinen\QuickBooks\Laravel\Filter that gets registered as quickbooks that will ensure the account is linked and redirect them to the connect route if needed.

Here is an example route definition:

Route::view('some/route/needing/quickbooks/token/before/using', 'some.view')
