For basic instructions on creating a product and submitting it to Adobe to be offered through Adobe Exchange, see Getting Started with Adobe Exchange.

To offer products for sale, follow the steps described below.

Create a paid or subscription product

Adobe Exchange offers producers two different payment methods: perpetual and subscription.

  • A perpetual product requires the user to pay a one-time fee to acquire it.
  • A subscription product can be paid for on a monthly or annual basis. You set the price that the user pays each month or each year to use your product.

Before you offer products for sale, register with Adobe’s e-commerce vendor, FastSpring. During registration, you are required to provide information about a bank account you use to receive payments and accept the FastSpring Terms of Use.

FastSpring registration

You can create a FastSpring account from any of the following ways:
