I know this has low votes but was wondering if this is even in the pipeline and if so approximately when it will happen. I have a customer/org that uses Office 365 and they want to purchase multiple(15+) licenses for one of my add-in's from AppSource. Without changing the add-in to implement licensing (which we can do), the only way the customer can do this is for each user to have a Microsoft Account and purchase the add-in separately. This is not practical. Also, the admin cannot go to each users PC and use an admin account to purchase for them because a single user/Microsoft account can only buy 1 license of an add-in in AppSource.
If there are any good workarounds it would be great to know. Also, great to know is an approximate time frame for when, if at all, paid add-ins will be able to be centrally deployed from Office 365 Admin.
