How instant ink plan Works
Instant Ink printing plans are based on pages, not cartridges. You choose an Instant Ink plan based on the number of pages you would like to print monthly. Your monthly plan fee enables you to use the subscription cartridges to print your plan pages and includes ink delivery and recycling.
Color, black and white, and photo prints all cost the same
Your plan is flexible and can be changed at any time to accommodate your printing needs.

Timelines for cartridges delivery
Replacement ink cartridges can take up to 10 days to arrive (according to your location), which should be enough for customers with regular usage. Considering that the Instant Ink program monitors the usage of the Ink, if you go to the Instant Ink website and login with your account, you will be able to see the ink levels and the possibility to purchase new cartridges. The purchase must be done through the Instant Ink website, using your account.
Questions about the need to use only received Ink and not be able to buy when finished
You can use HP compatible cartridges purchased from a store in your printer, instead of HP Instant Ink cartridges. But, unless you cancel your enrollment, you are still charged the monthly fee. If any of the ink cartridges installed in your enrolled printer are HP Instant Ink cartridges, then the pages you print are counted as plan, rollover, or additional pages.
Getting an error? Look onto these useful tech tips:
Message to remove the cartridge and reinstall
If your printer is enrolled and the cartridge error appears, perform the following steps to remove the message. When the message goes away, you can stop troubleshooting.
Refresh your account page
Refresh your account page to have the Instant Ink service check your printer status.
Check your printer connection in the Status area of your account page.
Offline: Click the blue refresh button, and then click the web browser reload button to reload the web page. Do this up to five times, until the green check appears.
Online: Turn the printer off and back on with the Power button and check to see if the error message remains.
Check your network
Your printer must be connected directly to the Internet. Check your network to make sure it is operating and compatible with Instant Ink.
Make sure your network is compatible with Instant Ink.
Public or guest networks, like those used in colleges, hotels, or coffee shops, are not compatible.
A USB cable connection is not compatible if it is your printer's only connection.
If another device, like a mobile phone, cannot connect to the Internet through your network, the network is not compatible.
If the network is not connected to the Internet, turn your network router and your printer off and back on. Go to the HP Wireless Printing Center for more help with your wireless network or Internet connection.
If you do not have access to a network that meets the requirements, HP Instant Ink cannot work. Purchase standard cartridges from a retailer.
If your network is compatible but the message still appears, continue troubleshooting.
Check the wireless connection
If your printer is connected to your network, the blue Wireless light should be on and not blinking. If your printer has a display on the control panel, the wireless icon should be on and not blinking.
