Levels and Benefits FAQ
|The Solution Partner Program is designed for companies that put Adobe technologies to work through implementations, creative services, technological innovations, solution development, system integration and strategic thought leadership.|
There is no fee to join the Adobe Solution Partner Program at the Community level. Fees apply to all other levels. If you join the Solution Partner Program at the Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze level, you must pay the fees according to the table under the Program Fees Section.
The fees paid by you will also cover your Affiliate(s) that are eligible for the Solution Partner Program. Affiliate(s) means, for a party, any other entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with, the party. All fees will be due and payable net 30 days and will be measured from the date of invoice. All invoices will be delivered electronically.
Adobe may charge interest at a monthly rate equal to the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law on any overdue fees, from the due date until the date the overdue amount (plus applicable interest) is paid in full. You must provide clear indication with your checks (or other form of payment) as to which invoices (or portions thereof) the payment should be applied. Alternatively, these payment details can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the date of payment.
If you fail to pay any amount due under this Agreement according to the payment terms contained herein, Adobe will send a reminder notice. If you fail to pay within 15 days of the date of the reminder notice, Adobe may, in its sole discretion, setoff such unpaid amounts against any benefits to which you are entitled (e.g., deal registration) and/or terminate your participation in the Solution Partner Program.

Unless you have correctly notified Adobe of the dispute, you must reimburse Adobe’s reasonable collection costs. You must pay the undisputed portions of Adobe’s invoice as required by this Solution Partner Program Guide.
