Re: DS9 S1: Emissary

I've just started watching this show from the beginning, and the one thing that annoys me about it, compared to other Trek shows, is the capitalist element of the show. Specifically, Quark and his establishment. Since the Federation doesn't use currency, is it ever explained how Starfleet personnel pay Quark for drinks, dabo, holosuites, etc? Bartering is a possibility, but nothing would have any real value if you can just replicate it for free. As far as I'm aware, the only things with real value, that can't be replicated, are things like latinum and dilithium. There are also other stores like Garek's clothing shop - again, why buy clothes when you can replicate them for free?
