          Adobe Licensing Programs

          Adobe offers multiple volume licensing program options —all of which save you money, time, and provide benefits not found elsewhere — to accommodate the different purchasing preferences of Adobe customers.

          • Adobe Transactional Licensing Program (TLP): TLP makes it easy for organizations of all sizes to get the benefits of volume ordering through the Transactional Licensing Program (TLP). This program is available worldwide and covers most Adobe desktop products. There are no membership requirements. TLP has programs available for Commercial, Education & Government verticals.
          • Adobe Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP): The best program for large and medium organizations is CLP, which provides a two-year savings level based on the value of an initial order. CLP requires no minimum for any additional purchases over the next two years. CLP has programs available for Commercial, Education & Government verticals.
