Earlier today, I paid for a monthly student plan, which gives access to all apps. I have not recieved access to these apps. According to Adobe, I have not purchased any plan, despite them taking my money. No plan appears on my account.
For context, and I believe this may be related to the issue, I had to use my college-provided email account (as it was a student plan). My college does provide an Adobe subscription, but it only works on the college's computers, so I was trying to get my own plan that would allow me to work from home. I believe that the system may have gotten confused.
Is there anything that I can do to fix this? Or at least get a refund, so I can purchase the plan on a separate account to stop this from happening?
Sometimes it does take a few hours for Adobe to confirm payment, activate new subscriptions and register them in their systems, so you might want to give it a bit of time to see what develops.
If there is a conflict with your email address, then yes, using a different email should work for you, so long as you continue to demonstrate eligibility for the reduced education pricing.
In the meantime, you can cancel your new subscription with Adobe within 14 days and get a full refund. Then go ahead and sign up again with your other address.
If for some reason any of this gets tripped up, then please contact Adobe Customer Care directly:
Hope that helps.
Thank you, this is very helpful!
I'm not sure how to get a refund, as the plan doesn't even appear on my account, and all guides on how to refund it require the plan to be there. Should I contact Adobe support?
Yes, definitely recommended then. They should be able to help sort it out.
If you tried to set up a personal account with the same email as the college account, you can’t. You really can’t. And it’s horribly confused it. Contact Adobe to cancel your payment immediately (if you wait they may charge a large cancellation fee). Then try again with a different Adobe ID. We can’t do that for you.
Yeah, normally the system won't even let you get two subscriptions with the same Adobe ID (email address)... Typically you'll get a message something like:
"You already have this product
You already have a Creative Cloud All Apps plan in your account. We're unable to assign two licenses of the same product to one account."
So not really sure what's at play here.
I've heard (but can't confirm) that enterprise and personal plans could end up with the same Adobe ID, but be entirely different things. You couldn't choose which one logs in, but it would be only one.
My AdobeID is contracted for both Individual Subs and Team Subs.
This is what your Adobe account will look like:
As Test_Screen_Name says, it is one account but it seems to be recognized as another.Enterprise seems to be recognized as another account.
In the case of a license issued by a school, there is a high possibility of logging in with an Enterprise ID.
