Whether you have ten employees or ten thousand, the Volume Purchase Program makes it simple to ﬁnd, buy, and distribute apps and books to meet your every business need.
The Volume Purchase Program store lets you purchase world-class apps and engaging interactive books that are great for business. Purchase content in volume and equip your entire workforce with innovation.
Buy apps in volume for both Mac and iOS through the Volume Purchase Program store. Free apps are also available, so you can provide users with all the tools they need to get their jobs done.
Get custom B2B apps built uniquely for you by third‑party developers. Custom B2B apps are delivered privately through the program and at any price, so your business gets exactly what it needs.
In addition to apps, books from the iBooks Store are available for purchase through the program. Tap into Multi-Touch books, and bring entirely new ways of learning to your workforce.
Businesses can buy Volume Purchase Program Credit (VPP Credit) with a purchase order for use on the Volume Purchase Program store. VPP Credit can be procured for a specific dollar amount and is delivered electronically to account administrators. Business customers can buy VPP Credit through their Apple purchasing account or through Apple Authorized Resellers.
The Volume Purchase Program provides businesses with complete ownership and control of content through mobile device management (MDM) solutions.
When you buy apps and books in volume, you can distribute apps via third-party MDM solutions directly to your devices. You also have the option to assign content to your users using redeemable codes.
Easily distribute apps to devices and employees while retaining ownership and control. Using an MDM solution, assign apps directly to your devices or invite users to participate if distributing via Apple ID. And when no longer needed, apps can be reassigned to another device or different employee.
Apps purchased and distributed through the Volume Purchase Program can be assigned to users or devices in any country where the app is available. Developers make their apps available in multiple countries through the standard App Store publishing process in iTunes Connect.
In just a few simple steps, your business will be set up to purchase and distribute apps and books in volume.
Enroll in the Volume Purchase Program by creating an Apple Deployment Programs account. You’ll be asked to create a dedicated Apple ID for administering the program and provide basic information about your business.
