Well, a couple months ago someone heard through the grapevine that I used to do websites so they contacted me about finishing a site of theirs that had been started by someone else. I decided to agree to do it even though I hate comming in half way through a project that didn't start out as mine.

Well, the site had been started with webz.com and was set up as an e-commerce site. The problem is the webz program does not offer hardly any control with the construction, which is fine, I can work my way through it but now he wants to add a coupon code that allows customers to discount their orders by 10%. From what I can see paypal has no way to allow the customers to enter a code at their checkout and with the way the webz program ties itself to paypal, it won't let me edit the checkout page there so I can add my own coupon code at the site before the sale transfers to paypal.

the site is www.rtenterprises.biz (http://www.rtenterprises.biz). I know it's ugly but he is pretty close minded and wanted me to use the webz software to build the site. I would like to redo the whole thing but this is what I'm stuck with so if anyone has any ideas of how I could ad a coupon code option to the interface please save me because for the love of God this man is very adamant about this coupon code.

I'm unfamiliar with the software you use, but lots of good softwre includes coupon features out of the box, maybe time to switch?

I agree, I am unfamiliar as well he just wanted me to continue using the same software that the previous designer was using but I can't make heads or tails of some of the features. He doesn't like change or complication but I think my only option is to try to convert everything we have. I guess if he really wants that coupon code he'll have to go along with the change.
