Updating payment method from one gateway to another (e.g. credit card to paypal)


I was just reading this in the 2.0 changelog:

> PayPal is now hidden as a payment option if the order total is 0

Is this why, when doing a "cart=updateinfo" cart, the customer cannot change to PayPal as a method of payment?

    Good question. It's actually probably because prior to very very recently, it wouldn't have made sense at all, as there was the concept of a "saved PayPal payment method." Now that we have the reference transaction support, however, that could make sense, but it'd still be a little awkward.

    I take it you're wanting to allow customers to update their subscription payment method? If that's the case, the sub_token would probably be the better approach, though tbh I don't think we've tested changing sub payments to/from PayPal or Amazon at this point. I'm about to do some testing on PayPal and Amazon subs, so I'll keep you posted.
