Can I use individual plans commercially as a single-person business?

Hi there,

I just started a one-woman business. Because I don't need all of the Creatvie Cloud apps, my best option is to pay for a couple individual plans rather than the all-encompassing business plan. Am I, as a very small business, allowed to use idividual plans commercially? Or are only those people who pay for the business plan allowed to sell their products?

Thank you,
Ambria

Does the term "business plan" confuse you? Of course, the individual products are intended for commercial use.

The thing the business plans give is that the business can control them. I generally say the individual plans aren't suitable for most businesses. This is because the business has no right to administer, transfer, or cancel an individual account, not even if they are paying. Adobe will talk only to the named individual in all cases.  In your situation, either plan will do, but bear this in mind if you take on staff. Another note: do NOT buy multiple identical plans for the SAME Adobe ID. You end...

If you only need one or two Adobe Creative Cloud programs, this is the way to go. If you need 3 or more, it is generally cheaper to get the All Apps subscription.

Yes, my husband was confused by the names and requested I confirm that businesses can also use individual plans commercially. Thank you! 🙂

Another note: do NOT buy multiple identical plans for the SAME Adobe ID. You end up paying twice, but you can't run any more seats! You need multiple Adobe IDs and billing in this case, even for one person.
