Gateway

Generic Overview

Gateways are responsible for handling the payment or the refund process of an order.

Gateway Drivers

Bazar provides some default drivers out of the box: Cash, Transfer, and Manual drivers. They all hold an elementary logic and transaction handling; however, they can be enough in many cases.

Note, Cash and Manual drivers are making the transactions completed instantly, while the Transfer driver saves it as a pending transaction.

Also, you may add your custom driver easily that implements the required logic or pull in a package that provides a gateway.

Creating Custom Drivers

Registering gateways works almost the same as registering shipping methods. All custom drivers should extend the Bazar\Gateway\Driver class, which holds two abstract methods: pay() and refund().

Note, the name is guessed automatically from the classname by default. If the guessed name does not match the desired one, you may specify your custom driver name by using the name() method.

Let's create a simple driver as an example:

use Bazar\Gateway\Driver;
use Bazar\Models\Order;
use Bazar\Models\Transaction;

class CreditCardDriver extends Driver
{
    public function pay(Order $order, float $amount = null): Transaction
    {
        //
    }

    public function refund(Order $refund, float $amount = null): Transaction
    {
        //
    }
}

Now, let's register the driver using the Bazar\Support\Facades\Gateway facade:

use Bazar\Support\Facades\Gateway;

Gateway::extend('credit-card', function ($app) {
    return new CreditCardDriver(
        $app['config']->get('services.creditcard')
    );
});
