Looking for a good PHP/Curl Example for Transactional Emails

Hello I am looking for a good example of a PHP/Curl to integrate with these Transactional Emails.  This does not work but something like this. Does anyone have this?


$user_id = "123";
$user_name = "Billy Boy";
$user_email = "test@gmail.com";

$login = '4487dccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc'; // client ID
$password = '292ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc'; // APi key
$url = 'https://api.createsend.com/api/v3.1/transactional/smartemail/135f6a51-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/send';

$data = array(
  "To" => ["Test<test@gmail.com>"],
  "Data" => array (
    "trader_id" => " . $user_id . ",
    "trader_name" => " . $user_name . ",
    "trader_email" => " . $user_email . "     

$data_string = json_encode($data);

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$login:$password");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(                                                                         
    'Content-Type: application/json',                                                                               
    'Content-Length: ' . strlen($data_string))                                                                       
$result = curl_exec($ch);
