I suggest you ...

add markup capabilities on estimates

I get many line item estimates from my vendors with different cost options associated with each item/option. I would like to be able to enter in my cost and then apply a markup percentage on my estimates to my clients.

you do this fine for invoices, but i need this for my estimates before we get to that stage.

        I just switched to Quickbooks online. I am very disappointed QBO doesn't include the ability to do markups in estimates.

        I need an estimate that will have MSRP , multiplier, my cost, client cost , how my profit is , how much client saved from MSRP on overall estimate

        This is insane. I've been waiting for this feature since QB started online. Desktop version used to work great. Definitely needs a percentage markup with the option of a $ markup per line, subtotals, and totals. Xero don't offer it either. Very frustrated Interior designer here!!

        Lack of this feature is preventing all my interior designer clients from being able to convert from Desktop to to QBO. Please add it!!

        Holy Mackeral!! Been on the phone with customer support for QBonline & NO ONE even knows what I'm talking about with the MISSING cost & markup capability on an estimate!!! How the hell can anyone who has run a business not understand this is a very important (CRITICAL) thing to have in doing an estimate! I'm going to the top here or won't pay for online QB. Crap! Had the desktop version 2012 that worked fine, had to go to online because my desktop computer bit the dust. ;( !!!!!!!

        I could not agree more with the sentiment of the comments that I see here. This is an awful display of "the next best thing". Quickbooks needs to invest in having actual business people involved in the design instead of just the bean counting mindset of financial workings. Business workflow folks.. look it up. QBO is missing tons of that sort of foresight. I find myself looking for a replacement quite often and have it narrowed down to a few. You can add pictures to the items in inventory, but you can't put them on an estimate?... WTFudge guys... you can do percentage on an invoice but not an estimate?... You can change the look and feel of the layout... barely... how hard is it to give me a file I can download and make changes too with a list of variables that I can manipulate...
        You list goes on and on... Fix this already...

        I've been using QB since 1999. The ability to adjust markups and see your profit while creating an estimate is VERY important! Intuit should be embarrassed making it's users revert back to a calculator to create Quickbooks estimates.
        This will be a MAJOR negative mark on this product until it's fixed.

        WHOEVER THE MORON IS THAT ELIMINATED THE FEATURE OF MARKING UP INDIVIDUAL LINE ITEMS AND THE BENEFIT OF KNOWING THE TOTAL PROFIT WHILED DOING AN ESTIMATE HAS NO SENSE OR RESPECT FOR BUSINESS OTHER THAN HOT DOG VENDORS. FIX THIS FEATURE!!!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I've just signed up to Quickbooks Online and was told when I discussed different features with your online team this was possible. To say I'm disappointed this isn't an option is an understatement!

        Surely this is a basic feature and necessity for any business that sends out quote?

        Please add this feature!!

        We NEED this capability of being able to see the markup and profit of each line item. It is an absolute dealbreaker that it can't be offered when it is so easily calculated. It is a matter of convenience and accessibility.
        This has been offered in the past. We know that it is possible. Please bring this feature to Quickbooks Online.

        Without this function of adding margins / markups to estimates is a deal breaker for me. I can't understand why qb does not have this available. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?????

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just switched a client to QBO PLUS and we are SO disappointment that there is not a column for marking up costs in the estimate. This needs to change.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The fact that QB online does NOT have a margin column for estimates is unacceptable. Every desktop version that I have ever had included this column.

        Is there a fix for this in the development area?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We are switching back to desktop version sense we need this function and Progress billing. Time to look for an alternative to QBD/QBO that has an online product

      • ChaseChase commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        QBO has this ability on invoices to add columns that are hidden to customers, so why can't it simply be turned on for estimates? The next step is to add a cost/markup column.

        yep totally agree i buy a range of items that have different % markups and i don't want to enter every item into inventory also with sublet items the amount of mark up is different VERY DISAPPOINTING had i have known this i would have looked at other programs
