Hello Magento Friends,

Hope all are doing well. Today I am going to justify Magento 2: How to use Default Curl Class For API Call. In case you missed checking out our previous blog, Magento 2: Add extra “Proceed to Checkout” Button on top of grid on shopping cart page.

Accordingly, one can successfully use the default curl class for API call in Magento 2. In case you face any trouble with the implementation of the above code, mention it in the comment part below. I will be happy to help you out. See you with another solution, till then stay in touch!

Happy Coding!
