Installation Composer

Alex Regan edited this page Apr 21, 2017 · 7 revisions

composer is the recommended way to install the SDK. Alternatively, if you prefer not to use Composer, but want to install our SDK, you can do so by doing a direct download

Currently, Paypal PHP Rest API SDK is available at To use it in your project, you need to include it as a dependency in your project composer.json file.


  1. Download Composer if not already installed

  2. Go to your project directory. If you do not have one, just create a directory and cd in.

    $ mkdir project
    $ cd project
  3. Execute composer require "paypal/rest-api-sdk-php:*" on command line. Replace composer with composer.phar if required. It should show something like this:

    $ composer require paypal/rest-api-sdk-php:*
    # output:
    ./composer.json has been created
    Loading composer repositories with package information
    Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
    - Installing paypal/rest-api-sdk-php (v0.16.1)
    Loading from cache
    Writing lock file
    Generating autoload files
  4. This is how your directory structure would look like. That's it. You have PayPal PHP SDK installed.
