Why don't Adobe offer a one-off payment for their software rather than monthly payments? It's so frustrating.

For someone like me, who only uses Photoshop and InDesign occasionally, it would be so much better to pay a one-off fee for the software and be done with it.

It's just so expensive to pay monthly.

Ok that's good to know.

I tried to find an Adobe email address to email my feedback to privately, but couldn't, so have posted on here in the hope that someone can explain to me why Adobe don't offer a one off payment for their products anymore.

I just want to buy the product outright like you used to be able to.
