Is it safe to use my credit card? Is my information secure?
Your information is secure with Adobe and Digital River, the approved e-commerce partner for the Adobe Store.
All online credit card sales are secured with SSL technology, the most secure encryption technology currently available for electronic transactions. Digital River uses the same credit card networks that retail stores use when you make a credit card purchase in person.
My credit card number isn’t accepted or is declined
How do I remove my credit card information from an Adobe account?
As part of our data security standards, Adobe does not store your credit card information on its servers, and instead uses an encrypted token number to process your payment.
If you need Adobe to remove this payment information, please contact us.
Taxes, VAT charges, and W9 form
To change the VAT ID associated with your account, contact us.
In most parts of the world, Adobe is legally required to charge sales tax according to the calculations you see when you purchase online. If Adobe doesn't charge taxes, you are sometimes still liable to pay the taxes yourself.
Adobe is registered in many different countries for which it is responsible for charging and collecting VAT/GST. For most sales, the rate charged depends on the country from which the goods or services are delivered. In Adobe European stores, you are charged the relevant VAT rate for hard goods and services.

|Country or region
|United States||Tax laws vary from state to state. You can download a copy of Adobe's W9 form.
Adobe collects and remits the Canadian Goods and Services Tax, Harmonized sales tax and Ontario Provincial sales tax.
Goods for UK and German customers are manufactured and shipped from Germany. Therefore, sales of physical goods must include German VAT (domestic transactions) as Adobe Ireland is VAT registered in Germany. If you purchase a subscription or download and provide a valid VAT number at the point of purchase, you aren't charged VAT.
Adobe is established in Ireland for VAT purposes, so downloads and subscriptions are considered domestic sales and are charged the Irish VAT rate for Ireland members. Customers in Ireland who purchase physical goods or services and provide a valid VAT number at the point of purchase aren't charged VAT.
Adobe is VAT-registered in Norway and in Switzerland as a requirement under these countries' VAT regimes. Adobe is obligated to charge VAT to “consumer” customers in Norway; if you provide a valid Norwegian VAT number, no VAT is charged. Adobe is obligated to charge Swiss VAT to all customers in Switzerland.

How do I get a receipt for my purchase?

Order tracking and shipping

See the Education FAQ.
How do I find my order number?
How can I view my order history?
Visit the Adobe Store for your country, sign in to your account, and click Plans and Products. Then click View Your Orders. If you purchased from another Adobe Store in the past, click the link at the top of your order history to find orders from another store.
What are the shipping and handling charges?
The total weight of all items, shipping method selected, and destination of the order determines shipping cost. You can see the total shipping amount before submitting your order (when you confirm your order).
For more information, see the Shipping and delivery FAQ.
Note: Adobe does not deliver to Post Office Box numbers.
How much do you charge for customs, brokerage, and other fees?
Adobe cannot determine the customs, brokerage, or other fees that you can incur when the product enters your country. Therefore, the carrier collects these fees when they deliver your order. In some countries, the carrier also collects appropriate taxes (VAT, GST, IVA, and so on).
For a more accurate estimate, check with the carrier. If you want to know the exact charges, purchase a software download or purchase from a local Adobe reseller.
