Unleash the App Store to your entire workforce.
Whether you’re providing apps to 10 employees or 10,000, the Volume Purchase Program makes it simple to find, buy and distribute the apps your business needs.
The Volume Purchase Program also provides a way to get customised business-to-business (B2B) apps built by third-party developers to meet the unique needs of your business.
The Volume Purchase Program is available in the following countries:
Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Spain,
United Kingdom and the United States.
Buy apps in volume.
Streamline your purchasing process and put more power and productivity in the hands of your workforce. Every paid app in the App Store is available for businesses to buy in volume through the Volume Purchase Program website. Simply search for the apps you need, enter the quantity you want to buy, and complete the transaction with your corporate credit card. Apps are available for purchase at the same price listed in the App Store.
Get customised B2B apps.
Customised B2B apps are built just for you by third-party developers and business partners to address a specific business process, integrate with a unique back-office environment or deliver a customised interface for your users. Using the Volume Purchase Program you can securely and privately download customised B2B apps that make your business even more effective. Pricing for customised B2B apps is set by the developer and can be either free or paid.
If you are a developer who is enrolled in the iOS Developer program you can create customised B2B apps for customers who are enrolled in the Volume Purchase Program.Learn more about developing customised B2B apps
Easily distribute apps.
The Volume Purchase Program makes it easy to distribute apps within your organisation. When you buy apps in volume or customised B2B apps, you will receive redemption codes for each app. You can control who gets the apps by providing these codes to users via email or an internal website. You can also use third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions or Apple Configurator for OS X to centrally manage redemption codes.Learn more about Mobile Device Management Learn more about Apple Configurator for OS X
