Tipping for Takeout?

You go into a restaurant that is primarily for eating in but you're picking up an order to go.

You pay with a credit card. When they hand you the slip to sign, there's a space where you can add on a tip and then total it.

Do you tip? If so, how much? Is it customary to tip 15% when all the person at the cash register did was hand you your order and run your credit card?
