You don't say what you're using to edit these videos, but there may be a better chromakey plugin for your platform than what comes natively. Also, again depending on your platform, most editors will allow you to crop the key area (garbage matte) so that the green screen doesn't have to cover the entire raster, just enough to back the product you're ...

If you shoot again with the new lighting, or even without the new lighting, play around with the angle of your product / camera / stool to minimize the reflections.

I have a couple of suggestions that could be of help: 1) Use a polarizer to reduce reflections. You say your boss won't spring for anything else, but you can pick one up fairly cheaply (like under $20 on amazon).

Its much easier to have, instead, either a green piece of paper (which honestly will not really work in daylight in terms of the key but will at least give you ...

Trackers never hurt and there's almost no reason not to use them, but there's no substitute for pre-production and field testing. The only failure is failure to plan. Ideally your markers would be high contrast, however you can place darker green markers on a green screen which can be entirely keyed out if the artist doesn't need them, but will still be ...
