    Hi jlucas,

    According to page 19 of the 'iOS 5 Education Deployment Guide', you're able to use purchase order, credit card or PCard. See the quote taken from it below-

    "Institutions can choose from a variety of methods for purchasing apps, books, and iBooks textbooks. Education users, like all iTunes users, can use credit cards or gift cards to fund individual purchases. To purchase apps and books in volume, education institutions can use the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and fund purchases via purchase order, credit card, or PCard. If an institution is tax exempt, it is not charged sales tax when purchasing content through VPP. An institution may choose one or more purchasing methods depending on its needs."

    Having said that, I've not tried it out myself yet so can't help you any further than that.

    James.

    Hi,

    I phoned Apple today and the only way of doing it is via a Credit Card, and we can't use the normal vouchers.

    I'm speaking to our finance team to investigate whether there's a way we can get a prepaid debit/credit card, so we can attach it to that but there will be a relative low balance that Finance can top up now and again.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    I asked apple about this as well and got similar reply. They did mention however, that the gift card option was work in progress, although that doesnt help now.

    Not a bad idea about the pre paid card from Finance, will ask about that myself here as well, would save time in asking the finance person coming to my office to purchase the apps every week.
