Method 1

I think you might be looking for unique():

{{ $sales->unique('customer_id')->count() }}

Method 2

You can count your distinct() value like this:

$sales = DB::table('sales')->select('id','customer_id','total','paid')->distinct('customer_id')->count('customer_id')->orderBy('id', 'DESC')->get();
