Who purchased my extension?

Is there a way to get a unique identifier for an extension that has been purchased by a user from the Adobe Exchange? If there is, can this id be associated with a record of the purchase? If there is no unique id, is there any type of user information available? How do I know who purchased my extension?


I’m about to sell an extension on the exchange, and I want to know if there is a way to verify that an extension is associated with a user that purchased it through the exchange. I know Adobe Exchange/FastSpring can provide license code that can be sent to a user through email, but want something really simple for the user. Is there any information about the Adobe ID used to purchase my extension.

    Hi Mark,

    to the best of my knowledge: nope. This is by design, and I think it involves also the privacy clauses in the Exchange EULA.

    The good news is that as a developer you're allowed to collect that data *from* the extension - i.e. asking directly to the customer to fill in name, email, whatever. This way implies the the direct consensus of the customer - otherwise Adobe won't share with you any customer sensible data.
