Dear Adobe,

since you dont give me any other option to get to your support, i have to post it here.

I just renewed my lightroom mobile subscription on the ipad, but it crashed. Now apple-Store shows me that I have succesfully subscriped and am paying 4,99, but in the lightroom app, choosing restore purchases doesnt work. Just shows me a rotating circle for like ever.

Installed Lightroom mobile on iphone, same result!

Could you please fix my account!

And why do i have to post this in a forum, and not just give me a [......]  email-adress?????

Very bad user experience!!

JM

Hi @Victoria5D1E 

Is this iOS or Android, or on a desktop computer?  When it fails, what happens?  If an error shows, what is the error message?  Does it help to force-quit and relaunch the app before you try to purchase again or try 'Restore Purchase?'  Does your app store purchase history show a successful purchase for Lightroom?

 

Before further troubleshooting, I recommend you make a full iTunes/iCloud Backup of your device so you can always restore it later to have the same files and apps you have today.  Please do not delete the app.  If you delete Lightroom while it is in the free use state, the images inside Lightroom will be deleted along with the app.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. The error message says: No restored purchases. Restore completed but there are no past purchases. 

When I check my subscriptions I do have this successfully active. I also received a charge for it. 

thanks,

victoria

Hi Victoria, that error means there is no purchase history available to the Lightroom app on the device you are trying Restore Purchase on.  What device are you trying Restore Purchase on?  And on what device did you origially buy Lightroom?  

 

If you bought on your mobile phone, and are trying Restore Purchase on your same mobile phone, then it should work.  If you bought the subscription via the desktop app, or directly from www.adobe.com, and now are trying Restore Purchase on your device, Restore Purchase won't work because the mobile app store that handles the subscription doesn't know anything about other mobile app stores or Adobe's digital store.  

 

If you still need help, it may be faster to contact Adobe Support directly.

Hi,

 

I have a similar problem. I've purchased the subscription through the app store and it shows me that the subscription is active but the app doesn't recognize it and it says that there is no active subscription for my email address. I've recently transferred from Android so my adobe ID is different email address from the one that my Apple ID is.

Hello @f4bles 

As long as you sign into Lightroom using the same Adobe ID / email address that was used on your Android device you should see your same subscribed account, files, etc.

Since you are transferring from one platform to another, you may wish to cancel the original Android to Samsung subscription, and once your account returns to an unpaid state, then resubscribe using the iOS Appstore subscription to Lightroom.

I did that and I've subscribed through apple app store but the lightroom app is showing me that I don't have a subscription active on that email address. I've tried to connect the email address that I use for Apple ID and the email address that I use for Adobe ID under the same account and It didn't help. I've tried to connect my Apple ID to adobe id and it always shows me the error.

This screenshot and the previous one you shared of iOS Settings indicate a valid LR subscription, but since I don't see an iOS subscription for the Adobe ID you use on the forums here, it would seem you may have more than one Lightroom account.  Your iTunes ID can only subscribe one Adobe ID/Lightroom account at a time.

 

When signing into Lightroom are there other email addresses or social logins (Facebook, Google, Apple) you might have used that you can try again?

I dont have any other adobe ID account but my adobe ID email adress is different than the one attached to the iTunes ID. Can that be the cause. Also I've tried to connect my Apple ID to adobe id and it always shows me the error.

This time I've purchased the subscription on my Samsung tablet through the galaxy store and my iPhone is refusing to validate the purchase. I really don't have an idea what to do after all of this.

Hi @f4bles 

I'm repeating the same reply here that I sent to your direct message:

 

I see no new subscription for Samsung or any other store for the email ID you used to post for help here.  Maybe you accidentally subscribed another Lightroom account? 

 

Pleasse check that you are sign into Lightroom using the same email ID on all devices.

 

For additional help, please contact Adobe Support directly -- they can help you immedaitely, and maybe can help you if you are trying to figure out the right email ID to use to sign into Lightroom.  I work on the Lightroom iOS product team, and maybe I am missing something that Adobe Support can see to help you for Lightroom Android.  Visit https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html, sign in, and then select the chat option to reach Support.  Thank you!

I did that.

And I'm going to put the response here so maybe it helps the other people.

Essentially they told me there is a problem in the communication between Samsung store and my account. They haven't offered me solution for the problem beside cancelation of the subscription through Samsung and offering me the one through adobe directly which is almost the double of the price I have been paying through Samsung.

I've uninstalled the app I've installed through Samsung and installed the one from Google play. Paid the subscription through Google play and the same thing is happening.

On my iPhone it's showing me that it's activating the subscription and it will take a few minutes and it's not changing.

I don't want to try and buy the subscription through Apple store again because they won't refund it again.

The problem is with the Adobe and nobody is trying to fix it.

@f4bles 

Apologies for the trouble -- there are things about your account that differ from normal, healthy subscriptions that we are trying to help you work through.  

 

I see no new Googe Play subscription for your account.  If tryting Restore Purchase from your Android device doesn't help, please contact Adobe Support again.  Explain to them the most recent events you shared in your last post, ask if the recent Samung subscription is getting in the way of your new Googe Play subscription.

 

But first, do try Restore Purchase: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/kb/lightroom-mobile-in-app-purchase-issue.html#

@defaultvobn9m9bo8ee 

Can you elaborate a bit more so we can better understand the issue?

Are you trying to subscribe via Lightroom Android or iOS?

Did the subscription appear to succeed, or fail?  Is there an error message?  Does force-quitting and restarting the app let the purchase process complete smoothly?

 

Thanks for sharing as much info as you can provide.
