Good online companies provide easy to understand and easy to use websites. They usually offer such information as:
- A Glossary of Terms to explain all the details about the toner cartridges they sell.
- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) answer the most commonly asked questions received by the toner vendor.
- The company Refund Policy should clearly explain how to receive a refund, if necessary. It should also state the period of time for which refund is available.
- The company Exchange Policy should explain how to get an exchange on a toner cartridge, the time required and procedures the company will follow.
- If for some reason you decide to cancel your compatible toner cartridge order, how do you do this. At what point can you ask for a cancellation. Normally, when your toner cartridges are shipped, you’ll have to request a refund.

8. Secure Server
Always verify the company uses a secure server. This will insure your personal information remains private. It is actually safer to order using a secure server than to pay by mail. Check out the FAQ section to learn about site security.

Many online toner cartridge merchants provide a way for you to track your order. Sometimes, this is through the shipping company. Although this is not essential, it is convenient. It’s nice to know where your toner cartridges are and when they will arrive.
10. Referral from a Friend
