->passthrough(['team_id' => $team->id])
// Array with payload:
$payload = [
'product_id' => $paddlePlanId,
'customer_email' => $team->owner->email,
'passthrough' => ['team_id' => $team->id],
$paddleResponse = Paddle::product()
return Redirect::to($paddleResponse['url']);

Paddle is a payment provider, but they also handle things like taxes and other region-specific taxes.

They simplify SasS billing, subscriptions, payment processing, and fraud detection.

This package requires Laravel 5.8 or 6.x and works with PHP >= 7.2. You can check out this package on GitHub at pascalbaljetmedia/laravel-paddle.
