NOT WORKINIG. After I add the "Coupon Code", I can't get back to the "Main" payment Wizard page to "Continue" to Finish, your Steps 8 & 9 above.

When I select "Return To Main" link, it takes me back to +Coupons window (the graphic under your Step 2 above) EXCEPT there are NO "Back" or "Next" buttons, just the small "X" close window button in the upper right hand corner of the window.

In other words, after I enter all the information for my Coupon Code, I can't get to the "Finish" in the Payment Wizard.

This is really, really frustrating. One of the big reasons I upgraded to paid subscription is for this function. Now, no way for me to get any support other than post questions.

I have a coupon code set up but I am connected through STRIPE. The coupon option was there for me so I made one, but it is NOT working. So, should that option not show for me since I use STRIPE or is there a way to integrate it with STRIPE?

We very much need to build logic into the coupon/discounting portion of the paypal payment widget. We would like to offer an option where if total exceeds x.xx or number of items selected exceeds x then a discount is applied. Can you help us?

I have a coupon code that allows for clients to get a free product, but it still asks for credit card info even when the payment balance is $0. What can I do to adjust this? I could make the field not required, but then that would allow those without the coupon to purchase/register without paying which is not what I want.

I am offering a $5.00 off shipping coupon, which reflects on the form but once we go to PayPal, PayPal doesn't honor the shipping discount.

Is there anyway to make the coupon itself required? It shouldn't let you submit the form unless the coupon field has been filed out and validated as valid. Please let me know.
