The Instant Ink service requires a network connection for the printer.  You will need to connect the printer to a network, a USB connection will not support Instant Ink.


What do I need to sign up?
To sign up to the HP Instant Ink service you need:
  • An HP printer that is compatible with this service.
  • An Internet connection for your printer.
  • A valid email address.
  • A valid payment method (for billing purposes): Credit card, direct debit, PayPal or HP Instant Ink Prepaid card*.
