VMware Purchasing Programs
VMware Purchasing Programs are designed to fit the purchasing needs of different customers. The Volume Purchasing Program (VPP) and Customer Purchasing Program rewards you for making more frequent, smaller, transactional buys. The Enterprise Purchasing Program (EPP) provides incentives for larger, strategically planned purchases. The Subscription Purchasing Program (SPP) allows customers a way to acquire VMware subscription services. VMware Purchasing Programs provide a flexible and cost effective way to purchase VMware products.
VMware Customer Purchasing Program
VMware’s Customer Purchase Program™ makes receiving discounts1 for purchases over $25K (or local equivalent) with VMware channel partners simple to qualify for and quick to transact. There is no need to enroll or track prior purchases when determining which tier of savings can be applied to a transaction. The larger your transaction, the higher the qualified discount.
- No need to enroll in a program, remember a membership number, or track prior purchases.
- Qualifying purchases are calculated in the form of points2 for each transaction.
- Discount tiers are earned automatically based on purchase volumes.
- Higher discounts when you purchase eligible VMware license products in volume.
- Simplified acquisition of VMware software through a standardized purchasing program.
- Easy to understand discount calculations based on each purchase volume.
End customers may purchase eligible products at a discount off then current VMware list prices. However, Customer Purchase Program discounts are passed down to end customers only through VMware authorized channel partners. VMware does not set final prices, actual discounts, or payment terms for licenses acquired through such channel partners. Final prices and payment terms are determined by agreement between the customer and their channel partner.
