In this example, we'll show how you can customize the markup for one particular line-item. Its extremely easy to do, let's take a look!

Simple Steps:

Let's say your item is using 50% markup for Material, Labor, and Subcontractor costs (this is the default in Clear Estimates) but you want to use 25% for Materials, 10% for Labor, and 75% for Subcontractor costs. Well, that's easy!

  1. First, Open the Part from your project by clicking the “Pencil” button. 
  2. In the "Material Cost Calculation" section, click the "Markup" dropdown on the right side
  3. Un-check the "Use Project Markup" box
  4. Type in 25% for the Material Markup
  5. [Optional] Repeat these steps for the Labor and Subcontractor costs

See It In Action!
