Adobe Acrobat Lifetime Purchase Page
Here is a link to make an Adobe Acrobat “outright purchase”:
UPDATE (5/31/2021): Perpetual license not offered anymore on the website. Adobe has removed the below options to purchase the lifetime version.
It is well hidden by Adobe who really wants to move customers to their yearly or monthly subscription model (see below my chat exchange with an Adobe sales advisor)…
Have you heard about PDF Studio?
If you are considering buying an eternal license of Adobe Acrobat, you might also be interested in our desktop application PDF Studio, which is an advanced PDF editor offered at 1/3 of the cost.
What is an outright purchase for Adobe Acrobat
You will find a chat exchange that I had with a sales advisor at Adobe® Acrobat® regarding the ability to purchase a lifetime / non-subscription license for Adobe Acrobat DC.
Even though it is rather hidden, it is still possible to make an “outright purchase”.
From chatting with the sales advisor, it is not clear what is included in free updates and how versioning / end-of-life will work for non-subscription purchases….
From the purchase page, it seems that there is still a yearly version number and considering a software life cycle, I am pretty sure that there will be an end-of-life based on this version at some point in the future.
Here is a screenshot of the purchase page on Adobe’s website:
