TokenKey from Stripe is not being send after submit

  laravel, php, stripe-payments

I’m trying to implement Stripe as payment method and I can’t get the value of the stripeToken after submiting the paymente form. I been trying for hours figuring it out, with no success. I don’t understand much of JS so I don’t know if the problem is there. But it shouldn’t be, since I saw the code elsewhere.


  • @section(‘extra_head’) is in the end of . @section(‘extra_js’) is before the . And I created a Stripe account and the values of the keys in .env are mine.

  • I don’t know if this is a weird behaviour but I tried a few Exceptions ( and the only Exception shown was a common one from Laravel "UnexpectedValueException". Could it be that the package was not well installed? My auto-discovery is not working and I have laravel 8 (yeah, I know it’s weird but it’s true). Could it be that causing some bad installation?

If someone needs any more information, please let me know.

I’m using cartalyst/stripe-laravel, I installed as follow:

In composer.json I placed this -> "cartalyst/stripe-laravel": "^13.0" and then did php composer update.
