This document is targeted at organizations with existing Creative Cloud for teams licenses through a Value Incentive Plan (VIP) subscription that are migrating to Adobe.com direct license agreement. Under this agreement, you can purchase a teams product directly from Adobe.com.
If the license type of your organization changes, to continue working your end users will need to sign out of any Adobe product or service and then sign back in with the same credentials.
For desktop products such as Photoshop, Acrobat, and Illustrator, use the Sign out and Sign in options in the Help menu. On Adobe.com, use the icon in the upper-right corner to sign out and then sign back.
Migration enables existing teams VIP customers to migrate to Adobe.com direct license agreement during renewal window on their existing VIP contract. Adobe.com direct license is apt for organizations that prefer to pay for their subscription monthly using a corporate credit card.
The VIP plan is preferable when organizations want to benefit from the volume discounts offered by Adobe. But if you have a Teams membership with fewer number of seats (less than 10), it is better to opt for Adobe.com direct license agreement. It saves any extra cost that the reseller might charge from you.
If you currently have a VIP subscription and are migrating to Adobe.com direct license agreement, use the following instructions to migrate your users seamlessly:
The CSV file that you download contains the list of products in your organization:
