The Apple Store for Resellers has seen some modifications recently, with Apple adding the possibility to create templates for common orders which can be used by authorized purchasing agents from corporations, schools, or by consultants.
A report by AppleInsider points out to the revamped store, informing that consultants and institutions with an Apple account can set up online orders via templates, whether they are the ones creating them, or whether they choose an existing one.
