The Federation has no money ...

Picard and Jake mentioned that Humans don't have money (except all of those who do), but the Federation easily could.

... all people can use free replicators to get food, clothes and other stuff.
I never assumed what comes out of the replicator is free. In TV shows set in modern times, how often in bars, shops and restaurant do you see characters pay for items?

The question is, from where the Federation people (starfleet officers) can get enough golden-pressed latinum, if they don't get money from their government.
The easiest answer is that they do in fact get paid.
