You can often find the name of the series on the front of the printer. After you select the series and the right printer, you click on Yes, continue.
Step 3: choose the plan you want
HP Instant Ink is available in 5 plans. They vary from free print plans to business print plans. Choose the plan that is the best fit for your printing habits. If it turns out that the plan isn't the right fit after all, you can easily change it every month. Keep in mind that you can't go back to the free try-out plan once you've registered for a paid subscription. You can also purchase additional pages for € 1 every month. How many pages you get depends on the plan. Select the plan that sounds good to you.
Step 4: create an account
In this window, you create an account. Don't forget to check the I'm not a robot box and decide if you want to give HP permission to send you emails. If you already have an HP account, you can click on Already have an HP account at the bottom of the page.
Step 5: connect to your printer
Turn on the printer and make sure it's (wirelessly) connected to the internet. You can tell it's connected by the WiFi or Ethernet icon on the display. If the printer won't connect, you can click on How do I connect? for more information. How you connect the printer differs for each printer series.
To connect your printer, go to the internet options via Settings. With the Wizard wireless settings, you select the network name and enter the password. After this process, your printer is connected to the WiFi.
Step 6: print the code and enter it
