Quoting Dan McFarland (dan@mailturtle.com):
> As a barter exchange owner, the best way to do it is to use a double- sales
> tax set-up.  One tax would be the transaction fee, the other the sales tax.
> This would keep them separate for accounting.
> The other option is to add the transaction fee to the sales tax percentage.
> Say the transaction is 10% and the sales tax 5%, make the tax item TRADE
> FEE/TAX at 15% total.  The drawback being if the user is non-taxable (out of
> state parhaps) it would not add any tax or fee.

You can also use mv_handling. Set $Values->{mv_handling} = 'barter' in your
sessions, and then in shipping.asc:

	desc: Transaction fee
	crit: [subtotal noformat=1]
	min:  0
	max:  999999999
	cost: x .10
