Account Overview

Your account allows you to make purchases, request rental quotes, register for training and events, and view all of your business with us in one convenient location.

This overview describes what you can do with your AbelCine online account. Features vary between Personal and Pro accounts, both of which are free. Our Account Comparison can help you select which is right for you.


Personal Accounts

When you first register on the site, you will have created a personal account. Personal accounts allow you to:

  • Purchase items
  • Request rental quotes
  • Register for classes and events
  • View a history of your orders and rental requests
  • Check the status of all your purchases
  • Add payment methods
  • Manage your address book and set default billing and shipping addresses
  • Update your username and password

To access any account features, expand the menu by clicking on the arrow next to your username at the top right corner of your profile page.

Additional Accounts

You can register additional personal accounts by selecting My User Settings in the red account menu and clicking on Create Additional Account. This is useful if you need to separate purchases made for different purposes, such as business and personal use, or different projects you are working on.

You will be asked to enter an Account Purpose if you create an additional account. This is to help you identify your accounts. Access to these accounts requires the same login and password.

If you have multiple accounts, you will be prompted to choose an account when you log in. You can Switch User to change the account at any time.


Pro Accounts

Pro accounts are designed for businesses where multiple people need access to the same AbelCine account. Permissions can be set for each user by the account’s administrator.

You can upgrade a Personal account to a Pro account at any time by clicking Upgrade Account below your profile name. When you submit a request for a Pro account, our customer service team will review it, and you will receive an email once your new account is ready.

Pro accounts include all features for Personal accounts, plus these:

  • Invite users to your Pro account and manage their permissions
  • View all orders and rental requests, along with the user who placed them
  • View all your company's invoices and credits
  • View your credit terms, credit limit, and available credit (if applicable)
  • View your AbelCare level, balance, and expiration date (if applicable)
  • Purchase items with credit terms, provided that terms have been established with our accounting department
  • View your AbelCine team’s contact details
