    Apple VPP

    Quick query re the Apple UK VPP for Education.
    A client school of mine don't have credit/ debit card... How do they go about purchasing app's using VPP without the use of plastic?!

    I don't think there is any way. I'm pretty sure you have to use a card.

    I have heard of buying "gift cards" from a reseller - Stormfront was who suggested it and they take PO numbers - and redeeming them against your account. Not sure if its possible with VPP

    Hi you have to use a credit card or their service that is similar to PayPal (name escapes me). But either way has to use a credit card. In America the have VPP gift cards in multiples of $100 but this isn't available in the UK yet but may be changing later this year according to an apple rep I spoke to as they had found this a major stumbling block in the uk.

    Cheers that confirms it. Spotted the US-VPP has a redeem button, alas not the case for GB-VPP, as it stands. I guess it's a waiting game.

    You can use a service called Click and Buy through the VPP which means you won't need a credit card.
    You can find more details here about VPP: VPP explained: Educational discounts on iPad apps | Jigsaw24
    Thanks,
