You have mastered one aspect of bartering - the ability to buy goods far cheaper than a normal person. With this Perk, you get a 25% discount when purchasing items from a store or another trader.

Master Trader is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

Effects

In Fallout, this perk adds the equivalent of 25 invisible skill points to the player's Barter skill when determining prices.[1]

In Fallout 2, due to a change in the Barter formula, this perk subtracts 25 points from a barter modifier, which is then multiplied by the original price and the Barter skill modifier.

By default, the modifier starts at 100%, but Reaction modifiers can add 25 points, 0 points, or subtract 15 points at the same time, making the discount appear to vary from 20% (when there is a +25 point "negative reaction" modifier), to 25% (with "neutral reaction" modifier (0 points), up to 40% (with a -15 point "positive reaction" modifier).[1]

Notes

The Fallout 2 manual incorrectly states that this perk makes the player character's items more valuable, and that the Barter requirement is 60%.
