Adobe: Top Design Software Suite & Stock Photos, Videos, 3D Assets

Products: Digital design software. Stock photos, videos, 3D assets, templates.

Commissions: 85% revenue share for the first month for their software suite, $72 CPA for stock photos.

Adobe is a world known brand for their top design software suite with apps like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. If you have not yet heard of these apps you just need to know that they are the industry standard when it comes to web and digital design.

Their software suite is a SaaS product, meaning that they require subscriptions instead of one-time payments. I would like to see them offer a recurring commission payout for this product.

Their stock photo site features of course photos, but also videos, 3D assets and templates for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere Pro. This makes this stock site rather unique and very useful to active customers of their software suite products. It also integrates with Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC.

Commissions: 10% recurring revenue share for a year.

They also have a different commission rate. While Envato Market pays 30% revenue share for the first purchase or deposit, Creative Market pays 10% recurring for a full year. I don’t think there should be too much difference in the total commission you earn with either one of these affiliate programs.

However, Creative Market also offers a subsciption based model for customers that want access to hundreds of thousands of assets for a fixed monthly price, with download limits. If you can refer customers to this membership you’ll get rewarded nicely at $5/mo to $20/mo for up to a year from each customer.
