The Volume Purchase Program store lets you purchase world-class App Store apps and engaging interactive books that are great for education. Purchase in volume and tap into immediate benefits for your entire institution.
Apps for Mac and iOS.
Buy apps in volume for both Mac and iOS through the VPP store. Free apps are also available, so you can provide students and faculty with all the tools they need to enhance learning.
Pricing for education.
Developers can offer education institutions special pricing on apps through VPP. If a developer has enabled education pricing, institutions receive a 50% discount when purchasing in quantities of 20 or more.
Books from the iBooks Store.
Use VPP to purchase a wide variety of books from the iBooks Store. Discover children’s books, classic novels, reference guides, and textbooks from major publishers, and bring entirely new ways of learning to your institution.
The Volume Purchase Program provides institutions with complete ownership and control of content through mobile device management (MDM) solutions. And users get quick and easy access to apps and books, over the air.
When you buy apps and books in volume you can distribute content via redeemable codes directly to your users. You also have the option to assign apps and books using third-party MDM solutions.
Easily distribute apps to users while retaining ownership and control. Invite users to participate, then assign apps using a MDM solution. Apps can be used on all the user’s devices and when no longer needed, reassigned to a different user. Learn more about MDM
If a student’s device is supervised, you can install apps over the air automatically and without any user interaction. This ensures students get the right apps they need at just the right time.
Education institutions can purchase apps and books in volume using purchase orders, credit cards, and PayPal. Institutions using purchase orders can now procure Volume Purchase Program Credit (VPP Credit) which provides credit to administrators electronically through email and for any amount. Education customers can buy VPP Credit through the Apple Online Store for Education or by calling 1-800-800-2775 to work with an Apple representative.
