Frequently Asked Questions

HP Instant Ink printers send print volume information, ink volume information, and other printer data to HP. They use this information to charge your account and know when it’s time to send more ink to your printer. Connect HP Instant Ink cartridges directly to the printer to track page usage4 and ink levels. Cartridges only communicate with the printer when connected to the Internet.

Are there any HP Instant Ink reviews I can read?

Yes, the environment is mixed. If you print regularly, this service is worth it. However, users who do not print very often have found that large HP Instant Ink cartridges dry out from lack of use. Also, beware of excess! After printing your monthly page limit and verifying all accumulated pages, HP charges $1.00 per additional page set (additional pages are available in sets of 10 to 50 pages). Depending on the shipping method you choose, ink cartridges may take up to ten days to arrive.

How does HP Instant Ink work?

Instead of purchasing replacement ink cartridges when they run out, HP will ship them automatically on agreed terms. What you pay is based on the number of pages you plan to print.

Is HP Instant Ink worth it?

It depends on what you print and how often. If you can comfortably stay within HP’s pre-set monthly page limit and don’t mind being tied down to the whims of your subscription service, this might make sense to you. Not having to think about ordering ink cartridges when your printer is running low gives you peace of mind.
