Frequently Asked Questions

With Canon's Auto Replenishment Service, as soon as your printer detects your supply is running low, you'll receive new high capacity ink tanks and/or toner cartridges automatically. Enjoy free enrollment, free standard shipping and free cancellation.

Canon's Auto Replenishment Service is available at the time of purchase and for select printers available on the Official Canon Online Store. You can view a full list of eligible printers here.

Start the enrollment process by shopping for an eligible printer. Once you have selected a printer, click on the check box (located on the product detail page) to enroll in the program. Then, add the printer to your cart and complete the checkout process. If you already have an eligible printer you can enroll at any time here.

Once you complete the initial printer installation and setup, click here to access our activation page and follow the steps to activate your service. You will also receive activation instructions via email.

There is no fee associated with the Auto Replenishment Service enrollment. You will only be charged for your replacement ink or toner once orders are shipped via free standard shipping.

Please see the ink and toner pricing chart above for all eligible printers. When it's time for your replacement supply to be shipped, your credit card will be charged the specific ink/toner price associated with your printer at the time of shipment.

Please note: The pricing represented in the chart above is the Original Price. Promotional discounts, if any, that are running at the time of your order will be automatically applied.

Your printer must be connected to the Internet for the printer to monitor your ink/toner levels and communicate to us when your supply is running low.

All eligible printers have a default setting based on remaining ink/toner percentage. The level at which low ink/toner is determined varies based on the specific model.

Your printer will display a message that your ink/toner level is low, and we will send you an order confirmation email when your replacement supply has been ordered. Once your order ships, you will receive a shipment confirmation email with tracking information. In addition, you can view the status of your order under your Canon Account settings. Ink/toner cartridges are sent via free standard shipping, which can take up to 3 to 7 business days to arrive.

To guarantee that your replacement supply is automatically ordered, be sure to use Genuine Canon ink or toner. Your printer's Genuine Canon ink or toner has been exclusively engineered for use with your Canon device. You'll experience enhanced quality and performance, higher yields and minimal jamming or malfunctioning — among many other benefits — when you pair your printer with Genuine Canon consumables.

If your ink or toner is unavailable when we plan to ship it, you will receive an email notification letting you know that your order was placed on backorder. Once it becomes available, your order will ship immediately. Your credit card will not be charged until your order ships. You will also have the option to cancel the pending order by calling Customer Service at 1-800-385-2155.

You can manage or cancel your enrollment, change your shipping address or change your payment method directly from your Canon Account.

Should you really pay monthly to use your at-home printer?

Ever just buy a new printer because it might cost less than restocking your old one with ink? 

If you have a printer at home, you know that high-priced ink cartridges can be a frustrating expense. 

Josh Hendrickson, an IT specialist and staff writer at How-To Geek, said he found a solution in 2016 when he joined HP's Instant Ink program. The monthly subscription service promises refills for as little as absolutely nothing per month if you don't print more than a pre-allotted number of sheets.

"Getting signed up was incredibly easy," Hendrickson said. "The idea that I wouldn’t have to go to the store and spend a bunch of money on ink was very tantalizing and convinced me and my wife to do it."

However, some of the terms and conditions of the program began to bother him over time. "I still use it, but now there’s reluctance," he said. He wrote an article documenting his experience coping with the surprise secondary costs.

Cost-per-page matters a lot to teachers who work on tight classroom budgets, college students who don't have much money and photographers who print photos for a living. It also matters if you or your family try to cut costs wherever possible. 

Many inkjet printer vendors boast about low-cost programs that address customer concerns. Some automatically send discounted replenishments straight to your door when your printer runs low. Others ship you bottles of ink, so you can refill the printer yourself.

Either way, customers say it's well worth it to read the fine print before you sign up.

If you cancel HP's service, the ink stops working. So the printer manufacturer owns the product it shipped to you. And it expects you to ship the used cartridges back. “HP Instant Ink cartridges do not work after the end of your current billing period, and you are required to return them to HP,” the company writes in bold type on its website.

If you use your printer after you cancel, you could be charged. “If there are any charges for additional printing, your credit card is charged. Depending on when you cancel, the charge might appear the following month,” HP said.

The company’s subscription service uses a tiered pricing system.

The free plan means you can print 15 pages a month at no cost if you don’t go over. If you’re an occasional printer, 50 pages per month will run you $2.99. For $4.99, you get 100 pages per month, and the highest tier allows you to print 300 pages for $9.99.

Each additional 10 pages is $1.

Hendrickson said the best part is, the pages you don’t use roll over.

“Some months, I went over on my printing (plan), but the rollover covered me,” Hendrickson said. His wife is a photographer, so the family signed up for the $2.99 plan.

Other months, there was no safety net.

In November 2018, they printed 116 pages above their limit, which added an extra $16 to their bill. The same thing happened in January, tacking on $13.

Still, he has saved money.

Since signing up, “I've spent $146 on the service. If I had bought all that ink the traditional route, I would have spent $220,” Hendrickson said.

He said printed pages count even if the words on the page are blurry. Also, you don’t get push notifications letting you know that you’re getting close to reaching your limit for the month.

HP printer.

When you suspect that you may be running low on the pages you paid for, you have to go to HP’s website to check.

“Since January, my wife and I have been constant page checkers though, so the psychological cost is still here,” Hendrickson said.

Laura Smith, a full-time blogger who specializes in home organization, said she tried refillable ink systems such as the ones offered by Epson and Canon before signing up for HP Instant Ink.

Canon’s savings options include printers that run on ink from refillable “Megatank” bottles.

The reservoir printers are costly upfront, but the ink is as low as $12 per bottle. Epson lowers running costs on its EcoTank and SuperTank printers by providing bottles “with a ridiculous amount of ink,” according to the company’s website.

Epson EcoTank Printers:How Shaq fell in love with them

Smith said, “Filling it myself messed up my printer every time.”

“I print a lot of colorful things, and I didn’t like not knowing how much it cost me,” the Indianapolis resident said. “HP has been great. If I know I’m going to print a lot, I upgrade my plan, so I don’t go over the limit.”

Sometimes, it’s worth it to replace your inexpensive printer rather than buying ink for the one you have. That depends heavily on how often you print. Manufacturers often include only half-full starter carts with cheaper inkjets, Hendrickson said.

Smith and Hendrickson said they’d recommend HP’s Instant Ink service, but Hendrickson said his advice “comes with provisions.”

He said he doesn't enjoy being afraid to print on his own printers sometimes.

"You just have to be comfortable with the fact that HP has a say over your life,” Hendrickson said. “If you’re comfortable with that, go for it. Save money. But first, do the math.”

How to install Ink Tank Canon E3170 แนวทาง

HP Instant Ink vs. Canon vs. Epson: Are ink subscriptions worth it?

The desire to save money on printing is nothing new. Replacing a printer's ink cartridges gets expensive in the long run. To ease the pain, some printer models offer high-yield cartridges, which offer some savings. A new strategy to reduce ongoing ink costs is with an ink cartridge subscription plan. All the major printer manufacturers now offer some variation of this.

When the ink in your printer is running low, these services automatically order and ship ink cartridges to you. This is undoubtedly convenient, saving you a trip to the office supply store.

Convenience aside, the big question is, will an ink subscription really save you money? That's what we set out to determine for this story.

We compared plans from the four biggest inkjet printer brands: Brother, Canon, Epson and HP. The plans vary and offer different terms, so you'll want to match your printing needs to the right plan in order to maximize your savings.

What are ink subscription plans?

These days, every printer manufacturer offers some sort of ink subscription plan. For a small recurring fee, you get to skip the inconvenience of running out of ink in the middle of a printing project, and save yourself a trip to the store, all while giving printer companies a new way to encourage brand loyalty and keep more dollars from going to third-party budget ink sellers.

Some plans have a monthly fee that includes a set number of printed pages, and the option to buy extra pages. Other plans simply offer a discount on the automatically triggered ink purchases, or just free shipping.

When the ink in your printer is running low, these services automatically order and ship ink cartridges to you. This is undoubtedly convenient, saving you a trip to the office supply store. In most cases, the shipping will be free, and you will receive an email notification that the order has been placed. Generally, you will have 24 hours to cancel the order, just in case you don't really need it. The printer needs to be connected to the internet for these subscription services to work.

All of these plans automatically ship ink cartridges to you when your printer is running low. The printer must be connected to the internet to initiate the order. And, of course, the printer must be eligible for the subscription plan. In our research, we found that most inkjet printers and all-in-ones we have tested are eligible for the manufacturer's ink subscription plan—but not all of them.

What types of subscription plans are available?

There are two types of ink subscriptions. Those with a monthly fee allow you a set number of printed pages. You pay only the monthly fee, not for the ink cartridges themselves when they are shipped to you.

An ink subscription with a monthly page count may be best suited to users with a consistent print volume. If your print needs vary widely, you may have to monitor your ink subscription plan in order to avoid excessive purchases of extra pages, or to avoid losing excessive pages that have been rolled over from previous months when you printed less than your plan allows.

The second plan type has no monthly fee—you just pay for the ink cartridges, sometimes at a discount price. There is no set number of monthly pages, or a monthly subscription fee, just free shipping and in some cases a discount on your order.

Regardless of the type of plan, the ink shipment is triggered automatically, and you are sent a notice, which gives you the option to cancel.

In some cases, third-party ink ordering programs are done in partnership with the printer makers. For example, Amazon Smart Ordering is offered by Brother.

If you already own a printer by HP, Brother or Epson, you have only one type of plan to choose from. Interestingly, Canon offers both types of ink subscription plans—but at press time only a couple models were eligible for its Pixma Print plan, which comes with a monthly fee and a set number of pages.

What makes a good ink subscription plan?

For this story, we evaluated ink subscription services for personal/small office inkjet printers. The majority of inkjet printers tested by Tom's Guide have a standard black ink cartridge that will print an estimated 1,000 pages or less. For these models, the average costs per page are 7.7 cents (text) and 20.7 cents (color). When using high-yield cartridges, these averages go down to 5.9 cents and 14.9 cents per page, respectively.

Both Canon and HP offer this type of plan, with page-count tiers. Both plans offer extra pages for 10 cents each, and a limited number of rollover pages. We have calculated the cost per page for the plans, assuming you printed exactly the monthly limit.

For these models, the average costs per page are 7.7 cents (text) and 20.7 cents (color). When using high-yield cartridges, these averages go down to 5.9 cents and 14.9 cents per page, respectively.

Basic cartridge replacement plans generally offer a set discount over retail pricing, but the amount varies by manufacturer. Even on those plans without special savings, you'll get free shipping and the added convenience of one less trip to the store when you run out of ink.

HP Instant Ink

Arguably the most popular and widely known ink subscription plan is HP Instant Ink, which offers a monthly fee-type plan that lets users pick the plan that matches their regular printing needs, and sends cartridges in the mail just when you need a refill.

HP Instant Ink offers five subscription tiers, ranging from 15 to 300 pages per month for the majority of home and business users. HP offers Instant Ink subscriptions on many models. You can find a complete list of eligible printers on the HP Instant Ink webpage. And unlike most ink subscription plans, HP offers toner for laser printers, as well.

If you use all of your pages, your cost per page will be anywhere from 4 cents to 7 cents. Extra pages cost $1 for 10, or 10 cents each. You are allowed to roll over up to three times the number of pages in your monthly plan.

By comparison, the Envy 7855 has costs per page of 7.1 cents (text) and 18 cents (color) when using high-yield cartridges. The printer uses two cartridges: black and tri-color.

If you used all your pages in the Occasional plan that comes with 50 pages per month, your cost per page would be 6 cents, regardless of how much color you printed. At that rate, Instant Ink looks like a pretty good bargain. Upping your plan to 100 pages per month would drop your cost per page to 5 cents.

Verdict: If you don't let rollover pages expire, it's a pretty good bet you'd save money with HP Instant Ink.

Canon Pixma Print

Canon Pixma Print is one of two ink subscription plans offered for Canon printers, and uses the monthly page count approach, charging a monthly fee for an allotted number of pages, and then shipping fresh ink whenever the printer is running low.

Canon offers four tiers for its Pixma Print ink subscription plan, beginning at $3.99 per month. The plans' page limits range from 30 pages to 200 pages monthly.

Frequent200$9.9910 cents eachUp to 200 total10 cents each

One plan, Pay As You Print, limits you to 30 pages and does not offer extra page purchases or allow you to rollover unused pages. The other Canon plan tiers offer extra pages for 10 cents each, as well as rollover pages. Shipping is free.

Costs per page range from 5 cents to 17 cents, if you were to use all your pages. However, at press time, only two models were eligible for this plan: the Pixma TS6420 ($100) and Pixma TR7020 ($130). (To check the list of eligible models, see Canon's website.) Both models use two ink cartridges: one black, and one tri-color.

One important detail is rollover pages. Comparing each company's 100-page plan, HP allows customers to roll over up to 300 pages, while Canon limits you to 100 rollover pages. However, Canon does include 100 free pages in its plan, which are good for six months.

Without this plan, printing 4-by-6-inch color photos with the two eligible models costs 37.1 cents using standard cartridges, and 28.9 cents with high-yield cartridges. If you print photos almost exclusively, even the entry-level plan would save you a chunk of change, at 17 cents per print. At the highest volume, the 200-pages-per-month Frequent plan drops cost per print to just 5 cents. This assumes, of course, that you are able to use all your pages, and never lose any pages you roll over. It also assumes you never go over and have to pay 10 cents per extra print.

Verdict: The Canon Pixma Print plan can certainly save you money if you keep up with the plan's page count. However, only two models are currently eligible.

Brother Refresh

Brother Refresh offers a 5 percent discount on ink cartridges. There is no monthly fee, and you can cancel at any time without penalty. To enroll, you select either Brother or Amazon Smart Order as the fulfillment provider. You can use the Brother PrinterProPlus app to enroll in Refresh, check ink levels, and manage your account.

Ink Subscription Discount PlanDiscount on ink purchasesNoteProviders
Brother Refresh5 percentFree shipping on $20 or moreBrother, Amazon

When you enroll, you select whether you want standard, high-yield, or super high-yield cartridges to be ordered. Standard shipping is free to the continental U.S., for orders over $20. Shipping on smaller orders costs $5.75. After an order is placed automatically, the customer receives an email notification. You have 24 hours to cancel the order.

Unlike previously mentioned printers, the Brother MFC-J995DW that we tested already offers very low costs per page. Using high-yield cartridges, the MFC-J995DW offers low costs per page of 1 cent (text) and 5 cents (color). These cartridges print an estimated 6,000 and 5,000 pages each, respectively. Signing up for this automatic ordering will save you five percent, and the shipping will always be free because even one standard yield ink cartridge for this model costs more than the minimum for free shipping.

You can find a list of eligible printers on the Brother Refresh website, and it includes both inkjet and laser printers.

Verdict: Brother's high-yield printers are known for low costs per page already. Saving another 5 percent is a no-brainer.

Canon Auto Replenishment

Canon's Auto Replenishment service offers free enrollment and free standard shipping on ink purchases. When your printer displays a low ink message, replacement cartridges will be ordered and an order confirmation email will be sent. Free standard shipping takes three to seven days, according to Canon.

Canon does not offer a set discount with its plan, which is disappointing. However, you will receive a discount if a promotional discount is being offered when your order is placed.

Of the Canon printers we've tested in this category, they averaged costs per page of 8.9 cents (text) and 22.1 cents (color) with standard cartridges, and 7 cents (text) and 16 cents (color) when using high-yield cartridges.

You can find a list of eligible printers on the Canon website.

Verdict: Canon's Auto Replenishment subscription does not offer a set discount, so the benefit is more for convenience than cost savings.

Epson ReadyInk

Epson does not offer an ink cartridge subscription directly. Rather, its ReadyInk program directs customers to enroll via a third-party ink subscription plan from Amazon or Staples. Both companies offer automatic ordering of ink cartridges, triggered by an eligible printer. (See the list of eligible printers on the Epson ReadyInk website.)

Ink Subscription Discount PlanDiscount on ink purchasesNoteProviders

Both Amazon Dash and Staples Smart Ordering offer a 10 percent discount on ink purchases. Amazon Dash does not require an Amazon Prime membership. For Prime members, using Amazon Smart Ordering adds Alexa functionality with the printer. As with previously discussed plans, ink cartridge orders are triggered when the printer detects it is low on ink.

Amazon Dash offers free shipping if the product is eligible for free shipping. Staples Smart Ordering offers free shipping on every order.

If you don't yet need more ink, with Staples Smart Ordering you can not cancel the order, but must pause your subscription. You also are allowed to cancel your subscription without penalty.

For comparison, the Epson WorkForce WF-2760, which we reviewed, offers costs per page of 6 cents (text) and 17.3 cents (color), when using its high-yield ink cartridges. Getting a 10 percent discount and free shipping knocks that down to 5.4 cents and 15.6 cents, respectively.

Verdict: Epson's ReadyInk subscription will save you 10 percent on ink purchases, and Amazon Prime members can take advantage of Alexa integration on compatible printers.

Which ink subscription plan is right for you?

Which type of ink subscription is right for you depends on how consistent your print volume is. Whether you have the stomach for managing an ink subscription with a monthly page count, to make sure you don't leave money on the table, is a largely personal decision. If managed well, a page count plan can certainly save you money.

On the other hand, a subscription plan that offers a set discount on ink sounds like a no-brainer. With a set discount on ink purchases, which arrive automatically as with the page count plans, you know you're saving money without having to take any action whatsoever.

Whichever type of plan you choose, it appears the printer makers are offering a fair amount of flexibility. In one form or another, these plans allow you to change your page count, buy extra pages, carry over unused pages, pause the subscription, cancel an unneeded order, or cancel the service without penalty. No matter which variety you decide on, it's pretty certain you'll be able to lower your printing costs.
