VIP program guide: Subscription term options
With VIP, the administration of licenses is very manageable and flexible, with subscription term options to meet your organization’s or institution's needs. And there’s no contract renewal or renegotiation necessary—only licenses need renewing each term, and you can adjust quantity and change products as needed. See the Renewal section for more information.
Subscription term options: Annual, Extended, and 3-Year Commit
VIP offers three subscription term options to fit your organization’s needs:
Annual subscription allows VIP Members to pay upfront for a 12-month license subscription. Your Anniversary Date is 12 months after the earlier of either (1) the date Adobe accepts your initial order or (2) your initial Purchase Authorization Date. Note: All terms default to an annual subscription at renewal.
Extended paid-up-front subscription
Prior to signing up for VIP, members may choose to pay up front for an extended term of up to 36 months (48 months for Government and Education members). This option makes it even easier for you to meet your purchasing and budgeting needs . With this option, you receive extended license periods and can select an Anniversary Date that aligns with your organization’s budget schedule. Please talk to your Account Manager about this option before signing up for VIP.
All terms default to an annual subscription at renewal.
3-year commit subscription
With a 3-year commit subscription option, you agree to order and renew a set number of licenses before your Anniversary Date during the 3-year commit term. Also, you agree that the set number of licenses will auto-renew on your Anniversary Date in VIP Marketplace, if you migrate to VIP Marketplace. And in exchange, Adobe agrees to offer set discounted pricing* for you during the 3-year commit term. You'll renew (annually) twice during the 3-year term at the set license quantity.
And by signing up for 3-year commit agreement, VIP Members get a deeper discount than an annual subscription commitment. 3-year commit isn't available for VIP Members with extended paid-up-front subscriptions.
Add additional licenses throughout the 3-year commit term at the set discounted price* Adobe agreed to offer you when you accepted the 3-year commit agreement. If eligible, a link to the 3-year commit amendment will appear in the Account tab in the Adobe Admin Console and is viewable by VIP Member’s primary customer admin.
* Specific pricing is always set between the Account Manager and the VIP Member. If you purchase through a reseller, your Account Manager is your reseller. Adobe will offer the same price to Adobe’s direct channel partner during a 3-year commit term. Certain currencies may be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates.
