When you create an order, you will need to specify a revenue type; which is most often is used to designate an order as cash or trade. This value will define how agency and sales commission is applied; items marked as "trade" will treat all values on the order as zero dollars for the purposed of commission calculation (essentially turning off commission for the order).
