VMware Purchasing Programs
VMware Purchasing Programs are designed to fit the purchasing needs of different customers. The Volume Purchasing Program (VPP) 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. The VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program (CCPP) enables greater visibility and cost control of your public/hybrid cloud deployments.
VMware Volume Purchasing Program (VPP)
VMware's Volume Purchasing Program (VPP) provides rewards to customers1 who make an initial purchase of $25K or more (or local equivalent). Qualifying VPP Purchase Orders placed with VMware using your VPP Membership Number accumulate points. As the accumulated points total increases, so do your potential savings. Your organization can also extend VPP Membership benefits to authorized affiliates.2 Member and affiliate purchases contribute toward the overall discount level, offering maximum savings.
- Receive financial incentives when you purchase VMware products in volume with VPP discounts on eligible license products.
- Achieve budget predictability since discounts are guaranteed for up to 2 years.
- Simplify your acquisition of VMware software through a standardized purchasing program.
- Accumulative program where qualifying purchases are aggregated (in the form of points) over a rolling eight-quarter period.3
- Discount levels are earned automatically based on purchase volumes.
- Easy-to-use online portals for membership enrollment and for tracking eligible discounts.

End customers may use their VPP membership number to purchase VMware products at a discounted price off VMware's then current local MSRP prices. However, discounts under VMware VPP 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.
