Why can't I buy your app bundles via the VPP (volume purchasing program)?

The Volume Purchase Program allows educational institutions to purchase apps and books in volume and distribute them to students, teachers, administrators, and other employees. The program also allows app developers to offer special pricing for purchases of 20 apps or more.

The VPP is administered by Apple and we have no control over the functionality of what it can and can’t do. Unfortunately, as of September 2016, they don’t allow app bundles to be included in the VPP, therefore the 50% discount enjoyed by schools doesn’t apply to app bundles, probably due to the fact bundles are usually already discounted and this would essentially be double-dipping.
You can read more about the VPP here.

Having said that, if you’re planning on purchasing 500+ licenses (e.g. Installing 8 apps on ~60 devices), we may be able to offer you a further discounted price through the VPP. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact us with details of how many apps and how many licenses of each you would like to purchase and we’ll be happy to to discuss the possibility of providing you with a further discount, as long as you're able to purchase the apps via the VPP.
