The full potential (e.g. auto-charge) of this app only works with Shopify Payments...
It's even worse... Not even setting up subscriptions for product variants is allowed with other payment gateways than Shopify Payment.
Hi, I am sorry to hear that you decided to write a bad review before even giving us a change to explain why the limitations are in place.
Our Seal Subscriptions app currently allows you to use the auto-charging feature with Shopify Payments, PayPal Express or Authorize.net. You are NOT limited only to Shopify Payments.
All subscription apps have the same limitation (currently) and there is nothing we can do about this.
We allow you to create a subscription rule even if you don't have any of these payment providers set up, as this is the only way to start using PayPal Express for auto-charging. You first have to create set up PayPal Express gateway and create an auto-charging subscription rule in your shop. Shopify then automatically submits your shop to PayPal for approval to use PayPal Express for auto-charging subscriptions.
If we wouldn't allow you to create a subscription rule, then you wouldn't be able to use PayPal Express for auto-charging subscriptions.
We are always happy to help you if you experience any issues with the app. You can always contact us at email@example.com.
I hope that I managed to explain to you why there are such limitations in the app.
I would like to invite you to revise your review of our app, as we are working hard to give you as much features as we can at a very competitive prices. We are constantly trying to find workarounds for various technical limitations and what you mentioned in the review is not our fault, as it is not us who decide which payment gateways will the app support. We always support all payment gateways we are allowed to support.

So far its been easy to install. Have not used it yet but they want you to leave a review so early. So I cannot do that. I a few months time.
If you're looking for a subscription app that does automatic recurring payments, this is not it. It does have other subscription features and is pretty comprehensive, but it won't let you set up automatic recurring payments which is essentially what a subscription is.
I would just like to let you and others know that we have released the auto-charging functionality some time ago. To start using the auto-charging functionality, just create a new auto-charging subscription rule in the app.
Thank you for your review.
You are correct that the app doesn't yet have a feature which would allow you to auto-charge your customers. We have this clearly pointed out on multiple locations, including the app listing page and the app settings.
However, we are currently actively working on adding the auto-charging feature to the app, so our customers will be able to start using this feature as soon as possible.
Have a great day,
Seal Subscriptions support team
