Can't get past step 3 of the "join page", to subscribe to the creative cloud special offer.
- All required fields are filled in
- Country is preset corrently to Australia, without a text box to edit
- each time i click to continue, another "change" link is added to the end of the greyed out step 2 line
Is now the second week i am unable to purchase the service.
Might be limited to Australia buyers?
Tried a variety of browsers mac safari/chrome also on win7 with firefox. Also tried a different net provider.
Get the same results;
each time i click continue for set three i go straight back to step 3
with a new update and the end of the 2 to line.
Understand the cloud service is a new thing, but worth making it easy for customers to purchase.
Thx Usagizmo - But alas the alternate payment link doesn't include discount to previous registered users. Would rather pay $37.99 pm for the first year.
I am having the same issue here. Even the adobe phone sales rep wasn't able to make the buy for me. The huge flaw here is that we don't have any error feedback pointing to what would be the issue...
Considering buying the full price via that alternate link and getting the refund for the special offer... This process is a pain at the moment.
Still no luck with this I'm afraid.
I was on the phone for about 45min with an Adobe support person on Tuesday who hadn't a clue how to resolve it. He even logged in himself using my details and encountered the same issue over and over again. It appears that this offer can only be purchased using the blue ugrade button when logged into creativecloud.com and going through its checkout system. Neither the adobe.com store nor phone sales have this special on offer.
After conceding defeat, the rep gave me a case number and forwarded my situation onto both his superiors and, I think, the sales tech department. I was also told that I would receive a phone call within 24 hours, but I have yet to hear anything... 48hours later.
Must be a big issue for them.
haha good luck...
I passed a WHOLE MORNING on the phone with them.
Really needed to get the cloud since my tril was expiring.
They encountered the same thing where the system hanged on the #3 process.
NOBODY knew what was happening since their system doesn't have any error log report! C'mon adobe! Get your act together...
Tried 4 diff credit card with no luck. The girl didn't have no clue and was in a HUGE hurry to finish with me and blamed my credit cards... She even had the guts to tell me it worked with their credit card test.. bollocks... their system is flawed and for some reason my account didn't want to accept the membership. even via the alternative buy.
So I tried making a new account and trying my BAD credit card on (forget the rebate then...)
and MAGIC! my credit card worked... So now who do we blame?
So now I am waiting to get my 2 accounts merged together and change my membership to the intro price. But hey couldn't be that easy...
Now in their support case for the merger is withdrawn and my products don't appear. How do I get my rebate now?
I reckon I should get a compensation for their crappy client experience and huge waste of time (my bosses we're pissed).
We are investigating this problem. Would each of you having the issue please email me at email@example.com with your Adobe ID and the type of plan you are trying to sign up for (Intro Offer, Annual or Month-to-Month). I apologize for the poor experience so far. We are listening and do take your feedback and complaints seriously.
We have identified the root cause of the issue affecting kekerobertson, fisk303, and brian.wilcox. Your VAT ID was set as undefined. We are fixing this for you and I will update this post again once it is fixed.
Your accounts have been fixed and you should be able to subscribe now with no issues.
Payment went through, although it did get completely stuck on the Please Wait screen, although I did get an Order Confirmation number sent to me on email.
Will try it out when I get home.
@kekerobertson - Glad to hear you succeeded. By "get completely stuck on the Please Wait screen" to you mean stayed on this screen until you closed the tab/browser? And if so how long did you wait?
I did mean exactly that... about 12-17min.
After a browser restart I logged into creativecloud.com and I no longer have the upgrade buttom top right, and my storage bar indicates 20Gb.
...Therefore I assume it is working correctly.
I just tried purchasing Creative Cloud on an annual plan, and I'm also getting stuck at the grayed-out "Please Wait" screen after checkout. Notes:
So, I've paid, but I'm stuck in limbo at the moment...
Just FYI, it looks like my issue resolved itself. For anyone else that might be experiencing the issue, I hit refresh on the (stuck) "Please Wait" screen. When the screen refreshed, it took me back to the blank purchase form. I was a little concerned, because I knew I had already made the purchase, and didn't want to be charged twice. So, before filling in the form again, I opened a new tab to check out my Creative Cloud, and sure enough, it was activated and I had download links for all the apps. So, I just killed the other tab without completing the purchase form again (obviously).
My guess is that there's something that is getting stuck in the purchase/activation process that causes that "Please Wait" screen to just hang. As long as you're not getting charged twice, refreshing seems to be the workaround.
I'm having similar issues purchasing an annual plan with Intro offer. My issue is slightly different than the above mentioned, as it seems I can not access step 3.
After clicking "Accept Billing Terms", step 3 appears and just hangs with the loading icon rotating. I've tried waiting for at least 15mins, but doesn't seem to load at all. Is this something you can help me out with?
I am trying to purchase the annual plan at the moment and I too am stuck on the "Please Wait" screen? It's been like this for over 10 minutes now?
I have not received any email notification as yet to tell me I have successfully signed up.
