Adobe Creative Cloud for Individuals All Apps Plan 1-Year Membership – Access to Discounted Rates

Pay For and Activate Your Membership

  1. Go to the Adobe Creative Cloud purchase page.
  2. Choose either the “Annual plan, paid monthly” or the “Annual plan, prepaid.” TechSoup recommends the monthly payment plan for the most flexibility.
    • Choose carefully: This membership comes with a one-year contract obligation regardless of the payment schedule you choose. All plans are fully refundable within the first 14 days. However, if you select an ANNUAL payment plan (prepaid) and cancel after the first 14 days, you will NOT receive a refund. If you select a monthly payment plan and cancel after the first 14 days, you will receive a half refund for your remaining contract obligation.
  3. Enter your email address and click Continue to payment.
    • If you already created an Adobe ID for a retail purchase or a previous TechSoup offer, you must create a new one, using a different email address, to receive this discounted Creative Cloud membership.
  4. Enter your payment information and click Place secure order.

Note: Each employee or volunteer receiving a membership must create his or her own Adobe ID.

If you have trouble with the payment or activation process, please contact Adobe support and have your Adobe ID handy.
