With VIP, enrollment is simple. Contact your Account Manager (either an Adobe representative or an Authorized Reseller*) to join VIP and order Adobe products.
Important: Account Manager means either:
(i) Reseller, if transaction is through a reseller, or
(ii) Adobe representative, if transaction is direct with Adobe
To enroll, contact your Account Manager and provide the following basic information:
- Market segment (Commercial, Government, or Education)
- Organization or institute name
- Designated VIP Administrator's name and email
Your Account Manager will then send you an email invitation to join the Value Incentive Plan and you are ready to place an order. Prior to purchase, the designated VIP Admin must read and accept the VIP terms and conditions to access the Admin Console for license management.
The invitation to join the Value Incentive Plan will contain terms and conditions that must be accepted by the VIP Member. Once the terms and conditions have been accepted, your organization or institution is given administrative access to the license management tool (Admin Console).
A VIP ID is a unique identifying number that designates your organization as a member of the VIP program. Your VIP ID is issued the day the invitation to join VIP is sent by your Account Manager. You should keep track of your VIP ID and provide it to your Account Manager(s) prior to purchasing any licenses. This number will remain in effect as long as your organization or institution chooses to participate in VIP.
Once your organization receives a VIP ID, you can then place your initial order directly with an Account Manager. You can order at the time of enrollment or anytime after. The Anniversary Date is automatically calculated as twelve months (12 months) after either the date Adobe accepts your initial order or, if earlier, your initial Purchase Authorization Date.
Joining VIP and then purchasing software licenses is simple and quick. The first easy step: Contact an Account Manager (either an Adobe representative or an Adobe Authorized Reseller) to request membership. You don’t have to be a huge organization to join—even teams, schools, and departments ordering a few licenses benefit from VIP Membership.
Adding licenses or creating a Purchase Authorization (PA) may not be available for all products. Contact your Account Manager for more information.
With VIP, you can budget more predictably, lower your up-front costs, and leverage volume discounts. Set your own Anniversary Date to align your buying cycle, and rest assured that your software will always be in compliance.
