Post Reply Payment method support
Posted 2/1/15 , edited 2/1/15
So I found this out recently, you can sign up for a premium membership with PayPal but there is no option to transfer a membership to PayPal with the same ease you can switch credit cards. Instead one must either cancel or stop recurring payments and once the existing membership has expired, sign for new one with PayPal.

So I'd like to suggest adding support for PayPal (maybe even Amazon Pay or Google Wallet) in the Payment Methods menu. Allow users to add PayPal etc and designate it as the default form of payment for the subscription.

Paypal payments have to be authorized on Paypal's website, so simply switching without user approval in the process is not possible, I believe.
