HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 Instant Ink Issues...

HP Recommended
Android 9.0 Pie

I initially subscribed to the HP Instant Ink program and everything was working fine.  I think there may have been some issues with my payment source at some point, which I updated and everything went along okay.  Then, at some point, I thought I didn't need the service anymore.  I didn't think I cancelled it completely, because I remember needing my printer again later, so I either re-activated my plan or re-enrolled.  Anyway, I was able to print just fine up until recently when I got the message that ink levels were too low.  Why didn't the HP Instant Ink Program recognize this and ship out replacement cartridges, especially since my account has been in good standing since I updated the payment information on  And where is the support from when it comes to billing/shipping issues when it comes to replacement cartridges?  (Especially the shipping aspect, as it appears they have no problem charging/billing me each month.)  Is there a direct contact number for the HP Instant Ink program to call and inquire about shipments?  The website is lacking in that regard.  The first thing they do is refer you to this forum.


Thank you

Make sure the printer is connected to the internet for HP servers to contact the printer.
