How do you justify charging $20 more to enter these records when each transaction has to be done manually instead of through and API or import?

This is not totally correct - concurrency is reported on form 8949 then on the Sch D. Every "sale" must be reported, even if you are exchange coin to coin (as in I bought BTC then exchange BTC to LTC, you have to report the gain or loss on the BTC). And. yes, follow the instructions above, but make sure to mail the 8949 in even if you file electronically.
