Can I offer volume pricing for educational institutions?

Yes. You can offer a discount when educational institutions purchase 20 or more copies of your app.

Once you've agreed to the latest Developer Program License Agreement and all attached Schedules, you will have the option to offer volume pricing on all of your apps. To offer volume pricing on individual apps, sign in to iTunes Connect and go to the Manage Your Applications module. For each app, select the Rights and Pricing section and click the Discount for Education Institutions check box.

What if I change my mind about offering volume pricing to educational institutions?

You can opt your apps in or out of education volume pricing at any time.

To remove apps from volume pricing, sign in to iTunes Connect and go to the Manage Your Applications module. For each app, select the Rights and Pricing section and deselect the Discount for Education Institutions check box. The change in your app's discount status will typically take effect in up to 24 hours.
