Casting Fees, Agency Fees, any kind of fees that are percentage based and client-facing can be setup in BlinkBid by changing the name of the Job Markup label and choosing which categories to apply the percentage.

In this example, we're going to show you how we helped one of our favorite casting director/producers set up her BlinkBid account to accommodate her casting fees which are percentage based and calculated against the Talent category.

To do this, go into Settings < Document Appearance < Label & Section Text < Label Text and change the 'Job Markup Label' to Casting Markup or Agency Fee.

BlinkBid gives you the option to markup the entire job or a specific category/categories as needed. To markup the talent category, while inside the estimate window, go to the hamburger menu, and choose "Markup by Category."

A pop up will appear, allowing you to name the grouped markup and enter a markup percentage. Click on the category (Talent) you would like to markup and press "Save."
