How to get paid

Find out how to request payment on Adobe Stock.

Once you’ve accrued more than US$25 in royalties on Adobe Stock, you can request a payout as long as you’ve met the following criteria:

  • You have a validated tax form on file in your account.

  • At least 45 days have passed since your first Adobe Stock sale. (You can make subsequent payment requests when you reach the US$25 threshold again.) 

  • You have a valid PayPal, Payoneer, or Skrill account available to receive funds. 

Payment accounts and currency information.

You can set up an account as part of the payment request process. Payoneer is only available for Contributors outside the United States who receive payments in US dollars, which includes people from South America, South Korea, South Africa, Australia, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine as well as all people with accounts created after February 18, 2020. See the Payoneer FAQ for information on how to set up your account.

Accounts created after February 18, 2020, and Turkish, South African, and South Korean accounts are paid in US dollars. Accounts created prior to February 18, 2020, are paid in the currency of the country where the account was set up. The currency an account is paid in can’t be changed.

Payout occurs in one of the following currencies — € / $ / £ / PLN / 円 / SEK — for accounts created prior to February 18, 2020. Regardless of your country of residence, the royalty is calculated based on the US purchase price of the file. Adobe uses credits to calculate the royalties with 1 credit = 1 USD = 1 Euro = 0.75 GPB = 7.10 SEK = 4 PLN = 150 Yen. 

In Japan, you need a Premium PayPal account to receive funds.  

In South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey, you need a Payoneer account to receive funds.
