Choose gateways for subscription use
The subscriptions extension automatically allows use of any enabled subscription capable gateway. It would be great if the gateways allowed for subscription use were configurable.
My particular use case is that I both sell products and offer subscriptions. I use Stripe and PayPal Standard for purchases. But I don't really want to use PayPal for subscriptions because it can't handle all the features and there is some pain with using PayPal subscriptions that I'd prefer to avoid.
A fantastic idea. Been looking for a solution to this for a while.
Seems a no brainer to allow choice of payment methods for subscriptions. Because for people who run multiple sites from same PayPal account it is impossible to get full subscription functionality on more than one site due to not being able to get PayPal API details for both.

The plugin did the job and the alternative I added to the comments on the gist fully takes care of it.

Hi Doug, I really like this idea but probably won't add it to Subscriptions until I see it get more traction.
I empathise with the pain PayPal can cause though, so for now, I've created a little plugin which you can use to disable PayPal for Subscription purchases, while still offering it as an option for one off purchases. Grab it form here: https://gist.github.com/thenbrent/6641526
