Adobe Acrobat Perpetual: End of Sales / Support

Effective July 15, 2024, Adobe will no longer sell Acrobat Standard 2020 and Acrobat Pro 2020 licenses in the Transactional License Program (TLP) and Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP) buying programs. Adobe will continue to offer subscription versions of Acrobat in the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) and Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA) buying programs.

The last date for placing orders for Acrobat perpetual license products in TLP and CLP will be July 15, 2024. Note also that Acrobat 2020 reaches End of Support in June 2025.

 

Who is impacted?

Customers and channel partners looking to place orders of a perpetual version of Acrobat will be impacted by this end of sale date. Any customers with completed purchases of Acrobat perpetual software by the end of sale date will continue to have access to their existing software per the terms of their agreement.

 

Will there be a new version of Acrobat perpetual?

There will not be a new version of Acrobat perpetual beyond Acrobat 2020. However, customers looking for a desktop-only, non-subscription version of Acrobat will have the option to purchase a term license of Acrobat, named Acrobat Classic, starting on July 15, 2024.

Acrobat Classic is a term license of desktop software that provides up to three years of paid access to Acrobat software and is available as a one-time, non-recurring purchase. Acrobat Classic does not include ongoing Acrobat product feature enhancements or access to premium Adobe Document Cloud services via web browser or mobile devices.

 

What’s my best option for buying Acrobat?

Subscription plans are the best way to take advantage of everything Acrobat has to offer. By upgrading to an Acrobat Pro subscription, Acrobat perpetual users get the most complete solution for working with PDF documents across all devices, along with regular product feature updates. Please contact us to learn more about your options for Acrobat software.

 

Why should I migrate to Acrobat subscription options in VIP?

Acrobat Pro and Acrobat Standard are Acrobat subscription license options in VIP. Acrobat Pro and Acrobat Standard will allow you to benefit from Adobe’s significant investment in the services for Acrobat, including AI Assistant (beta), mobile, integrations into Microsoft, and improved collaboration.
