In this article, I will share with you how to send POST cURL requests without waiting for a response with an example. 

Currently, I was work with one big laravel application and in this application, we need to send webhook POST data on the merchant's notification POST url. before I write POST webhook which waiting response from the merchant side. so, it takes more time to execute. it's ok with the small amount of data. but what happened if you play with a big amount of data? then this logic not working and your application should not be working fast. so, i search on google and make a very simple solution for it. so, I share with you how to make a fire and forget POST requests in cURL.

Example :

function postCurlRequest(string $url, array $post_array, $check_ssl=true) {
    $cmd = "curl -L -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json'";
    $cmd.= " -d '" . json_encode($post_array) . "' '" . $url . "'";
    if (!$check_ssl){
      $cmd.= "'  --insecure"; // this can speed things up, though it's not secure
    $cmd .= " > /dev/null 2>&1 &"; // don't wait for response

    // echo $cmd;die;

    exec($cmd, $output, $exit);
    return $exit == 0;

$data = [
	'order_no' => date('Y').rand(11111,99999).time(),
	'product_name' => 'products-1',
	'price' => 100,
	'currency' => 'USD',

$url = '';

$response = postCurlRequest($url, $data);
