    How to purchase VPP Credit

    One of my schools has a VPP account but I can't find where you actually make a purchase using a PO and not a credit card. Am being blind? or is there some weird procedure I need to follow?

    Despite what it says on the Apple website, only US customers can purchase using a PO at present. Everyone else has to use a credit card.

    AT Computers who did our initial setup offered to do the transactions for us +10% charge for using their credit. It was either this or use personal cards and claim back.

    Any advances on this situation?

    Apple (United Kingdom) - iPad in Education - IT - Volume Purchase Programme - this page (which looks like the VPP homepage for the UK to me) says you can use purchase orders...

    How to purchase VPP Credit

    I've replied to your other post about VPP.

    "I spoke with Apple about this very thing and was told you have to jump through hoops to get an Apple purchasing account, and then if you do, it's further hoops. Apparently later on this year resellers will be able to sell VPP credit which will make it easier. Did you get a similar story?"

    I use a PO to get VPP credit via my local Apple store business department. My school has a business account with local Apple store. Interestingly invoices come from Apple in London and not my local Apple store.

    Did you have to apply to open an Apple account, or did the local store just process it for you?

    Local store set up the business account. Just contact your local store and ask for the business team. Someone should be able to help you set up an account for your school.

    "Education customers can buy VPP Credit from Apple directly by calling 0800 912 0207."

    Quoted from a response from the Apple VPP Support team.
