What Is Cost Per Page?

When you are looking at ink cartridges or toner cartridges offered at Ink N Toner UK, you will see a ‘Cost Per Page’ section. This Cost Per Page gives you information of the cartridge cost per print. Therefore you can compare prices across each cartridges and find out how much you are saving.

For your convenience, the Cost Per Page information can be found on the list view of your printer (showing all the supplies for your machine) or the product view.

Please note the Cost Per Page information should be only used as a guide as the figure is based on the manufacturer’s estimates of how many pages a cartridge prints.

The page yields (below the cost per page information) tells you how many pages a cartridge can print before it runs out. For the vast majority of cartridges this is tested at a 5% coverage printed onto plain A4 paper.

5percent

The cost per page for an individual ink or toner cartridge is calculated using the page yield of that cartridge. For instance: the price of the cartridge divided by the page yield and this will give you an average cost per page of that cartridge.

The best value multi-packs’ cost per page is calculated using the total yield of the cartridges in the pack. The same principle applies; the price of the best value multi-pack divided by the total page yields and this will give you an average cost per page of this value pack.

If there are no Cost per Page displayed for a specific product, it just means that the page yield of the cartridge has not been tested according to the International Standard or InkNTonerUK are unable to source the page yield for that cartridge.
