Each Item can have a Component added to charge a Design Fee. (The below steps are different than adding a general markup percentage)Go to Company Settings - Advanced - General tab (you may also need to do this on the Project - Defaults - Advanced tab)

Find Design Fee on the left.Change the % Type in the drop down to Fee (if this is not already set). You can also enter a default Design fee percentage in the % column.


Company Settings:Project Settings:Tip: If you wish every Item to automatically add a Design Fee Component choose the check box in the Auto column.Choose Ok. Then choose OK again on the Company or Project window.


Now you can Add or Edit an Item:


Enter your Item/Component information for the cost/pricing for the Merchandise.At the bottom of the Component window you will see Freight/Design Fee /Additional charges.  Choose Design Fee from the drop down.  The system will automatically calculate the Design Fee based on the Sell Price of the Item-Component from above and any default Fee % you have entered; this can be changed here if no default was entered in the Project setting..Choose Ok. Then choose OK again on the Item window.The item entered will now have a total Estimated Price that includes a Design Fee:
