The Subscriptions and Recurring Payments Magento extension is an indispensable tool for those who want to sell products that are purchased with certain regularity: magazines, software licenses, or products like grocery, bottled water, memberships, pills, detergents, etc.
You can continue to sell these products as an one-off sale or offer them on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly subscription basis with any duration. The module supports PayPal, Authorize.Net, and eWay which allow you to process auto-created future payments securely on the gateway’s side.

But be advised: it's not a 'no-brainer one-click' kind of product. Take your time to learn how it works. The support guys at AW are quite helpful, just in case;)
Horrible Experience with this extension
1. When subscribers update their accounts the system does not recognize the new address or credit card information. So, products are shipped to the wrong address or the credit card is repeatedly declined.
2. Subscribers have to cancel their subscription, thencreate a new subscription if they have to update information. If they've missed several months. The system will charge them for the months that lapsed since their account was canceled. I have had some customers charged 10 times for one subscription.
3. Cannot migrate subscribers from the old version to the new version.
4. Everyday I have an issue with my subscribers' accounts due to using this extension.
I'm losing subscribers because of this extension. I highly do not recommend this product.
Smart And Intuitive
Good module, but notable omissions you should be aware of
No promotions whatsoever.
Only one subscription item allowed in cart at a time.
Subscriptions can only be applied to simple products, not bundles.
These limitations may not seem essential before you install the module, but once everything is in place these omissions will become a major setback if you intend to treat the subscription products like conventional Magento products.
This extension reduced my workload by 50% and keeps all the subscriptions in order! I can at last sleep at night without fear of sudden crash of customers subscriptions. This module is extremely reliable.
Great module and support
Essential module for subsciptions
Works well with Authorize payment gateway that is included with Magento.
Better than Magento core
Outstanding Extension/Documentation Needs Updated
Allowing it to be placed from the cart, as another has pointed out, would also be a great feature.
Hope these additions can be made as its close to being an excellent product.

Start-up is complicated, but using will be better
