    Where can I purchase a Volume License?

    Hi guys. I've been doing some Googling but I can't seem to find a satisfactory solution on this.

    After the 29th, I'd like to install Windows 10 on every computer at our small business's office (around 10 computers), so I'd like to get a Volume License if possible.

    I should make it very clear that NONE of the computers are valid for the "free upgrade" offer, none of them have any previous genuine copies of Windows 7 or 8. I'm looking to buy a brand new Volume License here, but I can't seem to find who to buy it from.

    I'd prefer not to buy a Volume License for 8.1 and THEN upgrade, but even if I do that, the Volume Licensing page on Microsoft.com is very confusing, I don't really want to ring up a sales person, is there not a web page where I can just type in my credit card and buy it?

    You can get them through CDW.com. This is where you want to start at first. Microsoft Volume Licensing Home Page

    You have to buy the volume licensing through a third party and for your business it will typically cost you about 75-150% more than buying the same number of OEM licenses!

    Win 10 Home OEM is 77 inc. VAT.
    Win 10 Pro OEM is 110 inc. VAT.

    The OEM versions are the same as full retail.

    The terms of the license differs in that you are not supposed to install on your personal PC, but can put it on someone else's.

    i.e. I could 'legally' put them on your PCs; which I am happy to do for nothing, if that's what you want to say.

    I suggest you go this route.

    Actually, to have a legally watertight case you could do this:

    Sell all you PCs to me for 1p.

    As I don't feel like travelling to your location I will hire you to install the OS on the PCs for 1p.

    You can buy the PCs back for 2p.
