I am calling third party API using below methods:

$ch = curl_init();
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $this->_url . 'api/v1/ShipTos');
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data_string);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Content-Type: application/json", "Authorization: Bearer $session", "Content-Length: " . strlen($data_string)));

        $out = curl_exec($ch);

How to call curl method in Magento 2 with example please?

 protected $curlClient;  

in construct add this

  public function __construct(     
        \Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Curl $curl

    ) {
        $this->curlClient = $curl;

You can use this like

$this->curlClient->post($serviceUrl, []);
//response will contain the output in form of JSON string
$response = $this->curlClient->getBody();

For more option you can see this file, vendor\magento\framework\HTTP\Client\Curl.php






get() // for get request

makeRequest() // for make request

setOption() // set curl options

  • @Vindhuja Setting a request method is not possible. We need add the functionality in Curl class in next magento release. Nov 30, 2018 at 8:27

The correct method should use the factory pattern. This is an example of the implementation in a helper context.

namespace Vendor\Middleware\Helper;

use Magento\Framework\Exception\NoSuchEntityException;
use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context;
use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper;
use Magento\Framework\HTTP\Adapter\CurlFactory;
use Zend_Http_Client;
use Zend_Http_Response;

class CurlHelper extends AbstractHelper

    const API_ENDPOINT_URL = 'https://www.example.com';

     * @var CurlFactory
    protected CurlFactory $curlFactory;

     * @param Context $context
     * @param CurlFactory $curlFactory
     * @param Data $helper
    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        CurlFactory $curlFactory,
        Helper $helper
    ) {
        $this->curlFactory = $curlFactory;
        $this->helper = $helper;

     * @throws NoSuchEntityException
    public function post()
        $endPoint = self::API_ENDPOINT_URL;
        $requstBody = ['param1'=>0,'param2'=>1];
        $httpAdapter = $this->curlFactory->create();

        $result = $httpAdapter->read();
        return Zend_Http_Response::extractBody($result);
