And here’s a piece of good news for all those who uses a printer but can’t remember those damn numbers printed in the ink cartridges. Yesterday, Amazon Dash announced that Samsung printers can automatically reorder ink cartridges.
What happens when your printer runs out of juice? Naturally, you would yank out the cartridge of the printer and start searching for a brand new one. The trouble is that no one bothers to remember the name of their printer, and they usually end up searching the store for ink cartridges that resemble the ones just ejected from the printer.
Amazon Dash understood the ordeal of most printer users and devised a system capable of sparing you a trip to the local computer store. So, how does Amazon Dash work? Quite simple, actually. Once your printer’s cartridge is low, the installed software orders a brand new one through the Amazon Dash store.
And you can be sure by the time you will run out of ink, the new one will be near your printer, just waiting to be installed. Again we state that this feature is great because there are many out there who keep forgetting the name of the printer. And it’s a little awkward to run around the store in search for a cartridge that matches the one you keep in your pocket.
As you might have expected, not all Samsung printer owners will receive this service provided by Amazon Dash. In fact, only a handful of printers will be able to handle the request. According to the official list of printers compatible with the Amazon Dash service, only the SL-C480FW, SL-C430W and the SL-M283DW models are eligible to reorder depleted ink cartridges.
Well, it beats memorizing all the funny letters and numbers and not to mention all the awkward trips to the computer shop.
Just imagine the possibilities: the software says that the printer will soon run out of ink. Within moments, the software places the order using the Amazon Dash service and within a few days, depending on your location, the replacement cartridge will be delivered to your front door.
And it’s also good for business as well. Think of all of IT guys who will breathe much easily once Amazon delivers the product to the company’s front door. They won’t have to worry about forgetting to change the cartridge.
According to Amazon, Samsung printers can automatically reorder ink cartridges once the ink levels are low. This will surely benefit all those who are tired of searching high and low for replacement cartridges.
