A Guide to the Best Value Compatible Ink Cartridges in Ireland

Best Value Ink Cartridges in IrelandFinding the best value compatible ink cartridges in Ireland can be tricky for those of you who are buying ink in Ireland online for the first time. There are several things to take into consideration such as whether the compatible cartridges work in your printer and if they don’t will you get an exchange or a refund? The answers to this question really depend on the website from whom you buy your ink cartridges. First of all when you search for ink cartridges in Google.ie, you will find a selection of online shops who pay for the right to advertise with Google and those who rely on Google picking up the phrase you have search for on their website.

The online shops who pay Google to advertise their shop to be associated with the phrase ink cartridges will come to the top of the shaded area on page one or be located on the sponsored ads on the right hand side of the page. Don’t just select a supplier from the top of the page in the Google sponsored shaded area, check out some of the suppliers a little further down as their prices may be a little lower as they won’t be paying Google for the privilege to advertise.

The price of the ink cartridges will be the first thing you are drawn to and this should be roughly 70% of the price you would pay for original manufactured ink cartridges. The reason the ink cartridges are so cheap is because the most ink and toner cartridges are mass-produced in China but interestingly to the same high ISO standard as the original brand. In the past there may have been a question mark over the quality and reliability of the compatible ink cartridge but nowadays high quality comes as standard.

There may be a variation in the price from supplier to supplier of the ink cartridges and this is because some online shops are buying in larger quantities than others. When you have decided that the price is what you want to pay then take a look at the delivery. Is there a charge for delivery and how much is it. Crucially the delivery should be within a day or two and if you are buying from a UK website this is unlikely to be the case. Royal Mail can take up to a week to deliver ink cartridges to the Republic of Ireland so buying from an Irish website has the distinct advantage of next day delivery by courier. Many couriers now require a signature and offer a track and trace on your parcel so you can follow the progress of your order online. Customer support is another essential element in the process of buying compatible ink cartridges as from time to time there may be issues with ink cartridge recognition by the printer and finding ways to overcome these difficulties will be resolved by contacting customer service.
