HP Instant Ink FAQs


Q: What do I get?

A: Once enrolled, you’ll receive a Welcome Kit delivered to your door. The ink or toner cartridge you receive is special and only works with HP Instant Ink. Your next shipment of ink or toner will be sent only when ink or toner levels are low, not monthly. No need to worry, because your printer drops us a note and your next set of cartridges will be automatically dispatched. Simply return the old cartridges with prepaid recycling.


Q: How do I pick a plan?

A: The best plan is based on your usage. If you don’t know how much you print, no worries — you can change or cancel your plan at any time, at no extra cost. Your dashboard in the HP Smart app will help you keep track of the number of pages you’ve printed for the month.


Q: How do I save?

A: HP makes larger cartridges with less packaging, only ship before ink or toner is needed, and recycle cartridges. HP passes these savings on to you and the environment. With ink, go ahead and print in color because color prints are the same price as black and white.


Q: What if my printing varies?

Don’t worry. You can change or cancel your plan anytime. And there’s no annual fee. If you print less one month, pages roll over. If you print more, then you can purchase extra.


Q: What happens to my unused pages?

A: If you do not use all your plan pages in a month, the unused pages will be kept in your account as rollover pages. Ink plans can roll over 3x the number of pages in your plan (150 pages if on the 50-page plan) and toner plans can roll over 2x the number of pages (100 pages if on the 50-page plan).


Never run out: Based on plan usage, internet connection to eligible HP printer, valid payment method, email address, and delivery service in your geographic area.
