Buying ink cartridges online advice

With the increase of home working and home schooling, the need for ink cartridges to be delivered secure and fast is ever so more important.  However buying ink cartridges on marketplaces is now proving more of a risk if the ink doesn't arrive on time. Historically customers always choose the cheapest by using filters on eBay or buy choosing the seller who wins the "Buy Box" on Amazon which is based on factors such as price/delivery/feedback/historic data. The problem is with recent algorithms created by the marketplaces it doesn't always work in the buyers favour.

We have seen out of stock items on Amazon at low prices pulling customers in but without the ability to deliver which is just an annoyance.  Any seller can advertise a low price if they have no stock. Unscrupulous sellers on eBay are selling unboxed or out of date stock and some are even advertising low "from" prices on their multi listings only to find they are advertising a non relevant item such as 5 or 10 sheets of photo paper instead of the ink cartridge.  We have also seen dog eared old returned stock from sellers classified as B or C grade stock. Plus most sellers on eBay and Amazon are fulfilling orders from the Channel Isles, Switzerland or Gibraltar and with the recent issues with the French borders orders will not arrive on time. Brexit will continue to be a hazard for offshore sellers.

Buying HP ink cartridges or Canon ink cartridges in shops or supermarkets such as Tescos can also deliver poor results.  High prices and scarce availability on top of risking personal health with the recent COVID outbreak is putting shoppers off.
