Customer Type Model

The customer type is an enum class and contains the following types by default:

Const Value Notes
ORGANIZATION organization (default) Use for companies, foundations, GOs, NGOs, etc
INDIVIDUAL individual For natural human customers

Extending, Customizing

Concord is the foundation for customizable classes, its Documentation contains and Extending Enums section. Read that first if you haven't done that yet.

This is an enum type so if you want to add further variants, extend the class and define new consts:

// App\CustomerType.php
class CustomerType extends Konekt\Customer\Models\CustomerType
    const ROBOT = 'robot';
    const ALIEN = 'alien';

    // You can also change the default value:
    const __DEFAULT = self::ROBOT;

You need to register your type so that it will be used instead of the stock CustomerType:

// app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php:

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;
use Konekt\Customer\Contracts\CustomerType as CustomerTypeContract;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function boot()
            CustomerTypeContract::class, \App\CustomerType::class

So now your extended type is in effect:

use Konekt\Customer\Models\Customer;

$robot = Customer::create([
    'firstname' => 'R2D2'

// object(App\CustomerType)#1050 (1) {
//     ["value":protected]=>
//     string(5) "robot"
//   }
