    PayPal is Preferred, but we can take credit or debit cards.

    For people that want to pay by credit card. Please read this below

    According to eBay a person can pay by credit card through the eBay checkout process. You should be able to hit a PAY BUTTON either in the auction or under items won section of your eBay account or in the email that eBay sends you when you use buy it now. After hitting the PAY BUTTON then choose credit card as a payment option rather than PayPal.
    We have found that it's hard for some to do. We can't see what hoops eBay make a buyer jump through to pay by card and it's different from buyer to buyer.

    If paying by credit card during the eBay checkout becomes difficult we can instead send you an email bill which will allow you to pay easily by credit card online without PayPal involved.
    So if you are having a problem paying, just let us know if you need us to do that. Just send us an email address to bill you at and tell us which of our shipping options you have chosen.
    Then we can send an ebill to allow you to pay safely online. The subject line of our bill would say "payment request from Digital Daydreams

    Retail Boxed software may only be returned for refund within 30 days of the invoice date if the packaging is unopened and factory sealed. If the return is a result of our error, then there will be no restocking fee and we will pay for return shipping. A 25% a restocking fee will apply to returns that are being sent back as a result of buyer's error, such as you ordered the wrong thing, and then the buyer will pay return shipping. Opened retail boxed software can only be returned for replacement if it is defective or damaged. You may exchange defective software for an identical replacement by contacting us and acquiring an RMA number. No software returns will be accepted after 30 days. Digital Daydreams is not responsible for system/software incompatibility, and incompatibility issues do not qualify software as damaged or defective. Customers are encouraged and expected to read the minimum system requirements and contact the respective software publisher for answers to technical questions prior to purchase.

    Note: If you have waited too long to return the item or if you don't want to pay our restocking fee you may be able to resell it on eBay, Amazon or elsewhere to get some or all of your money back. You might even make some money on it. Our pricing on some items is so low that other resellers often buy from us.

    CANCELLATIONS For information on our cancellation policy, see our "me page" or click on our ABOUT US link in the header at the top of this listing page.


    Our Guarantee is that the item is genuine and as described or your money back.

    IF WE MESS UP: If you need to return the product because it's not genuine or not as described, you have 30 days to return the item via our returns policy. In such cases there will be no restocking fee and we will pay for return shipping. This means that if we mess up we pay up. We believe the customer should never have to pay anything for our mistake.

    IF YOU MESS UP: If you need to return the product as a result of YOUR ERROR, you have 30 days from the time of invoice in which to let us know about the problem and arrange for a return. In such cases a 25% restocking fee will apply and the buyer will pay return shipping. Also the original shipping cost that we paid to get it to you will not be refunded and will be deducted from your 75% refund. See our "ME" page to see why we must charge a restock fee.

    One example of something that is considered to be your error is if you ordered something not compatible with your system, such as you have a Mac but ordered the Windows version, ordering new software to put on an old computer or ordering old software to put on a new computer. Customers are encouraged and expected to read the minimum system requirements and contact the respective software publisher for answers to technical questions, prior to purchase. Digital Daydreams is not responsible for system/software incompatibility and incompatibility issues do not qualify software as damaged or defective and is not considered by us to be our fault or our error. If the box is still sealed, you can return it via our returns policy. If you opened it, we can't take it back. You are then advised to contact the manufacturer's tech support and try to make it work or resell it online.



    The sad truth is that 19 of 20 software products being sold online are illegal fakes. Some bad people are doing it knowingly, some good people unknowingly. The fakes generally load up and run fine, at least at first so the sellers get away with it and even get good feedback so they think all is well. Many sellers don't know how to spot a fake. Only about 1 in 100 software buyers are savvy enough to notice that they got ripped off in time to report the seller or get a refund.

    Sellers that sell fakes claim their software is real.


    The fake products that software pirates are producing are in sealed retail boxes that to the untrained eye look identical to the real ones. Gone are the days when fakes were only a poorly printed disk. Pirated software is a multi-billion dollar industry. Most of which comes from Asia then winds up with USA distributors selling to unsuspecting Americans and are boxed to look like the real thing.

    People that sell fakes may not get a complaint from buyers for a long time and assume therefore that they are fine and buyers even leave positive feedback not knowing they have been ripped off until it's to late too get a refund and too late to report them. Even sellers with thousands of positive feedback are selling fakes and don't even know it. But showing a picture of the box bottom to piracy at adobe dot com that way you don't need to unseal it. Or calling the serial number of an open box in to Adobe will reveal that they are fake.

    We also know what to look for and will help you to avoid getting stuck with a fake. We've been selling software since 2000 and have been in contact over the years with many anti-piracy organizations, such as the SIIA, BSA, Adobes anti-piracy division and other large resellers within the industry.

    Sometimes we are aware before any of anti-piracy orgs of the latest trend in piracy. We keep on top of that so that we do not get stuck with a bogus box. The pirates still make enough multiple errors, that we can spot the fake Adobe boxes 100% of the time.


    What you should get from an honest seller is a North American commercial retail version that is shrink wrapped, the same as you would get in any major software store such as Best Buy, Newegg or Office Max. The advantage of this type software is that you can use it on commercial projects to earn a living with then, when you are done with it you can sell it, transfer the license and get some money back out of the software when you're done with it. (Sometimes putting hundreds of dollars back into your life).

    THE FLAKES are sellers selling lesser versions of real software that are not as advertized. They show a picture of a commercial retail box, but sell you a student version, volume license or just an oem disk that it worth less and cannot be resold or transferred when you are done. Sometimes it's used instead of new, these flakes don't disclose that in their listing. If caught in their deception, these flakes will justify thier non discloser by saying the software is exactly the same as the commercial retail version. They may be right. That's if you call being worthless to resell when you are done the same, if you call lying about being a student to use it the same.


    The following statement may sound like self serving sales hype, but it is a true statement. If someone is selling for a lot less than us then there is a good chance it is fake. Our products are generally among the lowest priced for a real sealed retail boxed version with free shipping.

    We can't tell you the ways to spot fakes, because pirates could read that info and correct their errors and make our job harder. But we care about this sad situation. We can and will help you. EVEN IF YOU DON'T BUY FROM US we will take time to help you.

    If you have already purchased else ware and have the original box just contact us and we can have you send pictures of the box to us or can ask you some questions to let you know if yours is legal and a proper version. If you have not yet purchased then get your seller to send you pictures of the box bottom, top and right side. Then contact us to arrange to send those pictures to us.


    Call the serial number into adobe software and speak with a real person there. They can help you. Adobe Software 1-800-833-6687. Never give your serial number to anyone except adobe.

    Here's what you need to ask adobe to be sure it's as it should be.

    1: Is this full North American Commercial Retail Version. (Answer should be YES)
    2: Has this ever been registered? (Answer should be NO if it's new)
    3: Are there 2 activations available? (Answer should be YES if it's new)


    If it seems too good to be true, it probably is just that, TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

    NEVER buy from a drop shipper (A drop shipper is someone that does not have the product in their possession, they have someone else ship it for them). These almost always are fakes shipped from China and are illegal.

    NEVER buy a portable version a flash drive (they are illegal fakes).

    NEVER buy just a disk or DVD case or adobe product with missing box. (the box is probably missing because the box would prove it's fake of some lesser version) It is safe to buy one from us because we check our opened box products with adobe before offering them for sale.

    NEVER buy just a download, serial number or product key (99% of time they are fakes that will activate a downloaded trial until adobe finds out and kills the activation at which point your software quits).

    NEVER buy software from another country or from someone with less than 10 feedback. ( Some of the scammers build a few positive feedback selling small items for pennies so they get you to trust the feedback then they offer a fake box, make $250.00 from it and disappear. Sometimes the item location says USA but if you click on their name or feedback they turn out to be in Thailand, China or Estonia).

    If this info has helped you, please let us know. (see our contact page). Sadly most will never read this and then become victims.
