Whether you are using the Windows Store for Business alone or integrated with Microsoft Intune or System Center Configuration Manager, in order to perform bulk purchases of apps that require a paid license in the Windows Store for Business (WSfB), you will need to add a payment method to your account. This will involve adding a credit card to the account. This process is fairly straight forward, and most SysAdmins should have no problem with this process. So why then, did I create this blog post?
In many larger organizations, the SysAdmin is not responsible for procurement and does not have access to the corporate credit card that will be used to make purchases. So you can pass this on to your procurement office and let them enter the credit card information for you. You can add an additional account to the WSfB for the procurement officer if required.
- Login to the Windows store for Business with your management account.
Navigate to Manage>Account information
Select Show my payment options
Select Add new payment method
Add the appropriate credit card information and then click Next
Verify your information and then click Save
Once you see the payment method listed including the credit card’s last four digits and the expiry date, click Close
Now you can make paid license purchases from the WSfB.
