How much is the price increase for Adobe Acrobat Pro?
In August 2022, Adobe announced new Adobe Acrobat Pro and Standard capabilities. With these new capabilities, a price increase for Acrobat Pro was announced:
Any new customers as of August 8, 2022, pay about 40% more for an Acrobat Pro license.
For existing customers (who had at least one active Acrobat Pro subscription license by August 8, 2022,) the price increase of about 40% becomes effective July 1, 2023. The new pricing applies to contract renewals and reorders of licenses you make on or after July 1, 2023. Therefore, we recommend purchasing Adobe Acrobat Pro licenses before July 1, 2023. Existing 3-year-contract customers will continue to receive their pricing through the completion of their 3-year term.
When will the price increase take effect?
The price increase will take effect on different dates depending on your situation:
- If you are a new customer who wants to buy Adobe Acrobat Pro after August 8, 2022, you will have to pay the new price from the start.
- If you are an existing customer who had at least one active Acrobat Pro subscription license by August 8, 2022, you will have to pay the new price from July 1, 2023 onwards. This means that you have until June 30, 2023 to renew or reorder your licenses at the current price.
- If you are an existing customer who has a 3-year-contract with Adobe for Acrobat Pro, you will continue to receive your pricing through the completion of your 3-year term.
How can existing customers save money on Adobe Acrobat Pro?
If you are an existing customer who wants to save money on Adobe Acrobat Pro before the price increase in 2023, here are some tips:
- Buy more licenses before July 1, 2023: If you need more licenses for your team or organization, you can buy them before July 1, 2023 at the current price and save up to 40% compared to the new price. You can also buy licenses for future use and activate them later.
