The login ID for the Apple Store is your email address (e.g. with a standard password you create only for the Apple Store. If you are asked for a group id, it is 71137. Setting up of an ID involves receiving response emails and will not work if you use an email address other than email address.

For university purchases you'll need to indicate whether you are a purchaser (meaning you are management and have P.O. signature approval) or proposer (for which you'll need to input your manager's email address).
