I would like to purchase the software (a perpetual license) without a subscription.  I am unable to see the option on the Adobe website.  I would be happy with Adobe Acrobat Pro XI but that is no longer available and supported.  Does anyone have suggestions?

Hi,

 

I hope you are doing well.

 

Surprisingly, Acrobat Pro 2017 and Acrobat Standard 2017 are no longer directly available for licensing.


However, Acrobat Pro 2020 and Acrobat Standard 2020 have just been released. They can be licensed from here https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog.html?types=pf_252Fdesktop&types=pf_252Fmobile&types=pf_252Fweb&filters=de_252Fpdf  

 

Alternative steps: 

Go to the Adobe Products Page (https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog/software.html) and sort the products

The question was certainly understood and answered. However, Adobe are forever rearranging their web site to hide the non-subscription product ever more. If you can find "Acrobat 2020", which Adobe don't want you to do, then that's what you need.

I had this same problem and DID finally find the flat out "buy it" instead of subscription. ($445!)   Just use the search bar to type in Adobe Pro 2020, and it's one of the two options that comes up.   For that amount of money, I'm going to look into a few other third party products, as all I REALLY need is just the Form editor.

You can try Ashampoo PDF Pro 2. It's on sale at just $20 (original $70). 

 

Yes, it is not as powerful as Acrobat but  Acrobat is not 22 times better. Acrobat pricing is a total joke.

 

Look at Microsoft. When they lowered the price of office, almost everyone preferred the original product. Their profit increased 10-fold. If you just sell your product at a reasonable price, everyone will prefer to get a genuine product.

Dell carries 2020 for $299 and Lenovo carries 2020 for $259. A simple Google search is all that is required.

That must be Acrobat Standard, then, which Adobe sells for $299 (full license). Acrobat Pro costs $449.

I just bought two licenses today from Lenovo for Adobe Acrobat Pro 2020 for $249 each. It's completely legit. They are a reseller for their computers. It's fully downloadable and they send you the serial number.

I'm sorry, they were $259 each. Total was $519.98 plus tax.

Wow, you're right! I just logged into Lenovo and went to my order history. I had ordered twice for a total of three licenses -- 2 downloads on 5/7 and another download on 5/20. Now the product is gone. I wonder if Adobe stopped them from selling after seeing on this site or others like it? Or maybe Lenovo ran out of 2020 single licenses to sell?

I don't think that Lenovo will sell against Adobe's rulls.

It probably Lenovo ran out of 2020 single licenses to sell.

I just installed this on a W10 machine--UG from 2017 Pro.  It reaked havoc on my Adobe products.  Requires login even though perpetual and reset license information on all.  I have been using Adobe products since they first came out.  2017 is my last version of this product.  I am going to try a product designed for individuals not interested in subscriptions.  Terrible support.

The way Adobe handles their sales is exteremly confusing. I'm cancelling my subscription for the sheer fact that I can't simply access the one product I want, without the CC bloat... awful UX!
