    Apple iOS Volume Purchase Programme

    Evening,

    So it seems this was launched today: Apple (United Kingdom) - Education - Volume Purchase Programme - but I cannot for the life of me get it to work. Clicking on 'Enrol Now' takes me to an enrollment page which up on loading jumps again and gives a page not found.

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    Well that's just typical. I've been trying all day in work to get this done and at home this evening on a Windows 7 laptop (IE9 etc).

    I read the above posts on my Mac and try again - it is now working.

    Cheers everyone,

    This is in Canada as well. My Apple rep called today to pass this information on to us for education purchasing.

    About time this existed! Is it just iOS apps, or does it apply to OS X software too?

    Without looking I would expect its the case for both iOS and mac apps.

    Just reading through the notes. Does it actually require a credit card to purchase the apps? as mentioned here
    "How to I purchase apps in volume?
    Log in to the Volume Purchase Programme Education Store with your new Apple ID. After login, you can search for apps by name. Using a credit card, you can then purchase apps in the quantity you need."

    Or can you still use a gift card. Going to be a bit of a pain if i have to get a credit card authorised for every purchase.

    This is for iOS Apps only......Volume Purchasing of Mac OS X Apps has been around for ages

    The 'Enrol Now' seems to be working now. Has anyone actually enrolled and is currently using the volume licensing programme?

    I have enrolled successfully (using Google Chrome on Windows to signup), but haven't purchased any apps yet.
