Copy Purchase defines if and how you want the Purchase Cost to be copied to the Selling Price for items. This can save you from entering the same amount multiple times.

This setting can be adjusted on a company-wide level by heading into Settings > My Company > Codes and selecting the desired option from the dropdown as in the image below.
Even with this setting enabled, you'll still be able to adjust it on an item-by-item basis within the item settings.
- Always – always copy the Purchase Cost to the Selling Price.
- Never – never copy the Purchase Cost to the Selling Price.
- Zero – only copy the Purchase Cost to the Selling Price if the Selling Price is 0.
To specify Copy Purchase on an individual item, select the item and hit Edit to get to the Item Details screen.
Head to the Codes tab and select your desired setting from the Copy Purchase dropdown.
Here, you will see a column for entering your cost (Purchase Cost). Depending on how you set up Copy Purchase, the amount you enter here under Unit Cost can be copied to the amount you want to charge your client (Selling Price).
In the below image, the Unit Cost from Purchase Cost was copied over into the Selling Price column because Copy Purchase was set to Always.
