Dumb question time: can't you just define a promo code to do this?  I
understand the desire not to have a general-purpose 20% promo out there,
but a lot of the shopping systems have a way to tie promotions to
certain qualifications...and if you were to tie this one to orders which
(a) include a certain "dummy item" at zero price that flags it as a ZC
order or (b) are being shipped to the ZC address ZIP code, that ought to
make things relatively painless.
