How are people offering sales/coupons with WordPress and Paypal
So I have a WordPress site and adding a PayPal button seems to be the only way that works to offer customers to make a purchase (I tried woo commerce but that only works with an unhosted wordpress.org site and I have no idea how to do that). My problem is that I want to offer coupons/coupon codes to customers but PayPal doesn't support this function.
I can't be the only one in this boat! What are other people in this situation doing?
I don't understand what you mean when you say Woo Commerce only works with an unhosted WordPress.org site.

If you're using the free version of WordPress.com as far as I know they don't allow Pay Pal buttons, ads or anything like that. You probably will have to move to a self hosted version which comes with Woo Commerce by default if you need that kind of functionality. WordPress.com is just for the basics of publishing.
If you've seen a WordPress.com site with a store front, point it out and we'll be better able to tell you what they're using and how.
