Learn how to update your account and reinitiate a payment if your original payment failed or you missed a payment.

Before you begin: Which account page do you see?


We've been busy!

We're working hard to improve your experience. We are transitioning to a redesigned account page. So we can direct you to the right content, first see which account page you have.

  1. Sign in to your Adobe account (use the email address you provided when you set up your account).

  2. Click the page below that matches your account page, and you'll find the correct instructions.

Even if a payment fails, you have access to your Creative Cloud apps for 21 days. Your subscription is suspended on the 21st day if you don’t update your payment information by then.


In countries served by Digital River, Adobe's e-commerce partner, you must contact us to reinitiate your payment.

Confirm your payment info is correct

    If your payment is not reinitiated after four business hours, contact us.

Confirm standing with your payment provider

If you pay with a credit card

If you’ve confirmed that your credit card information is correct, contact your bank to:

  • Ensure that the credit limit has not been exceeded. 
  • Inquire about daily withdrawal or purchase limits, as payment declines are due to these limits. 
  • Make sure that the credit or debit card is in good standing and that your card supports online transactions.
  • Find out if their fraud protection policies are affecting the use of your card.

Once any errors are fixed, Adobe reprocesses your payment automatically.

If you pay with PayPal

Contact PayPal directly to resolve any billing issues. Once any errors are fixed, Adobe reprocesses your payment automatically.
