Laravel: How to access controller function from webhook I created to catch Stripe events?

For new credit cards, I used to tokenize the card and then charge it. I had a function inside my CheckoutController.php that trigger the flow:

public function checkoutWithNewCard(Request $request) {
$total = $request->input('total');
$customer = $request->user();

createOrder() also create the order on my backend and clears the cart so it needs to run.

I have no switched to using Stripe’s new hosted Checkout so a customer is now sent to stripe’s own checkout form and upon success, sent back to my site and I am using a webhook to catch checkout.session.completed event.
I have a StripeController.php for my webhooks and tested this properly. I had a log statement inside checkout.session.completed upon checkout and it fires properly.



namespace AppHttpControllersAdmin;

use AppHttpControllersController;
use IlluminateHttpRequest;
use AppJobsCompleteStripeCheckoutWithNewCardJob;

class StripeController extends Controller

public $payload;

public $event;

public function __construct()
$this->payload = @file_get_contents('php://input');
$this->event = null;

public function incoming(Request $request)

try {
$event = StripeEvent::constructFrom(
json_decode($this->payload, true), $request->all()

} catch(UnexpectedValueException $e) {
// Invalid payload
return response()->json(['status' => 0, 'message' => 'error']);

// Handle the event
switch ($event->type) {
case 'checkout.session.completed':
dispatch(new CompleteStripeCheckoutWithNewCardJob();
// Unexpected event type

return response()->json(['success' => "1"], 200);

I removed my log statement and created a placehold Job called CompleteStripeCheckoutWithNewCardJob() because I now need to run the logic that was inside my CheckoutController.php to create the order (createOrder()) but I don’t know how I can fire those off from inside the Job, a different context.
