Hi everyone,

I sell 1 product (offered in three colors). Paypal isn't inspiring confidence in my visitors. I want to upgrade to something more professional, that includes the following features:

- I want to use my merchant account, not paypal. I do have an Authorize.net payment gateway, but volume is low enough that I can enter the card numbers manually.

- I want to offer coupon codes to certain customers. When they enter their coupon number, they will receive the corresponding discount. I can manage the coupons easily, and set a valid date range on each.

- I want to offer multiple shipping options.

I've checked out Mal's and liked it's simplicity and cost, but wasn't sure if it could do the features I have listed here. What solutions would you recommend?

Thanks very much, Paul

Mal's can do all that.

There is nothing stopping a customer from giving their coupon code to someone else though (in other words, they are just codes, not tied to a specific customers in any way.)

The only other limitation that might be an issue for you is the date ranges. The resolution on date ranges for Mal's in one month.

If you need to give specific customers a discount then you'd need to have shopping cart that allows for customer accounts to be set up, with their own specific discount.

Good Luck!
