One time payment for package or product
This goes for all Adobe Products. I mostly use Illustrator. Bringing back a bundle, one time collection or individual services; one time payment instead of monthly.

I am an ex-graphic designer who no longer work in the field but still get design jobs every now and them (about one a year). I am resorting to use other vector program since paying $45.99 AUD does not make sense when each project is very small. I would DEFINITELY purchase Illustrator if it was available to purchase outright as it used to be. Not to mention internet drops off often where I live. Please think of those who do not have perfect internet connection or who cannot afford the "contract" system.
I would absolutely totally go for that as long as it's made affordable. In my opinion, for one-time payments, there could be different categories. I know everyone struggles financially from time-to-time, but for example: Beginners/ High-school/College students, the pricing should be cheaper/more reasonable than for someone who is either a semi-pro or pro at using Illustrator or any products and same goes for the other products.
Monthly payments can get very costly. For example: Beginners/Students for individual products should be between $10-$15 for Illustrator or even Photoshop alone. Let's say there's about 3-4 other products combined together like Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Bridge for example, that should be around $30 or so for a pkg. of 4 items.
But if there's a package that includes Everything should be between $50-$100, maybe a little more than $100 as a max because Adobe has more products which includes design products than I thought they had.
I feel like a one-time payment would be very helpful Especially for Students who are currently enrolled in a class who not only can't afford the monthly payments, but also either don't have nearly as much help from parents as they used to or no help at all where they have to pay for school themselves. And the pricing I mentioned above are suggestions where I feel like they're pretty reasonable whether it be a single product or a package. If there was a package, the main 2 I'd use would be Illustrator and Photoshop. But I'd prob. use Photoshop a whole lot more than Illustrator though with a one-time payment.
