        \Session::put('params', $params);

         if ($resp->isRedirect()) {
             // redirect to offsite payment gateway
         } else {
             // payment failed: display message to customer echo

    public function complete(Request $request){
         $params = \Session::get('params');
         $payerId = $request->input('PayerID');
         $token = $request->input('token');
         $paymentId = $request->input('paymentId');
         $params['payerId'] = $payerId;

         $response = $this->gateway->completePurchase($params)->send();
         if ($response->isSuccessful()) {
             echo $payerId;             
             echo '<br>';
             echo $token;
             echo '<br>';
