Common Questions & Answers
- I can't tell the difference between standard yield and high yield.
While at certain times, there will not be a physical difference in the size of your cartridge; a high-yield cartridge is a better value as it always contains more ink or toner. The size and shape of a cartridge will vary at times, but for the most part, the dimensions are set because they must fit into the printer.
Having more ink in a cartridge translates to a lower cost per page because, as a customer, you receive much more ink and many more prints for a price that is only marginally higher.
- I can't create a new password.
You can only have active password at a time. This means that if you lose a password and request a new one, any old passwords will no longer work. Even if you find it or remember it, you must still use the new one; multiple attempts to use it will lead to your account being locked.
These rules are in place to protect our users. If you have further problems with creating a new password, please contact our customer service staff at 888-321-2552.
- I did not receive a confirmation number.
We have an automated system that sends out confirmation emails after a purchase is made on our website. It only takes a few minutes, so within a short period of time, you should know if there has been a problem. Generally, issues are caused by mistyped email addresses. The second most frequent issue that we encounter is messages being captured by an email client's SPAM filter.
Phone orders are manually entered into the system and for that reason there is a more a delay before customers with phone orders receive their confirmation email.
- Why can't I track my international package?
International customers should expect a short delay due to Customs inspections at the border. However once a package goes beyond US borders, we do not have the ability to track it.
- Why does the cartridge I received look bigger/smaller/different than the OEM?
There are some minor differences in the appearance of our compatible cartridges compared to the OEM products that they replace. This is done mostly to ensure that there is no confusion between them. With remanufactured cartridges, there are often parts that need to be repaired or replaced and those repairs can affect the appearance of the product that you buy. These changes, however, do not have any effect on performance.
- How do I get discounts (coupons)?
We have a plenty of outlets for accessing discounts and special sales. The simplest way to go about it would be to join our mailing list. We also announce our sales and other promotions on our Social Media channels. Our Facebook page and Twitter feed will have coupon codes, contests, and other opportunities to cut your ink and toner spending even more than our regular low prices!
- Why is the ink level reading low or empty?
Depending on the kind of printer than you have, your printer and cartridge are attempting to communicate how much ink is left so that you don't run out without realizing it. Sometimes, this process does not work with older printers and cartridges, or with remanufactured products. If this happens, you still have ink and you can print, but you will have to monitor your own use.
- Why are the remanufactured and compatible cartridges so much cheaper?
Our costs for bringing you these products are lower and our prices are lower as a result. Because our compatible cartridges cost less to make and have much less overhead cost attached to them, our prices on these brand-new products is still very low. Similarly, our remanufactured products are made from once-used OEM cartridges that have been expertly repaired and cleaned.
With these cost-cutting methods, we are able to provide a top-quality product at a very low cost to you.
- What are remanufactured and compatible cartridges and how do they differ from OEM's?
An OEM cartridge is a new cartridge made by the same company that makes your printer. Our compatible cartridges are also brand-new and while they are made specifically for your printer, they will differ slightly in appearance because they are made with our patented design. A remanufactured cartridge is an OEM cartridge that has been cleaned, repaired if necessary, and rigorously tested to ensure that it performs at the same level that a brand-new product would.
