2023 Aftermarket Toner Checklist

• Bigger Margins vs OEM

You need to make a decent profit without quality issues and backlash from customers.

• Supply Chain Visibility

Forward-thinking dealers want assurances that they can source products for the foreseeable future to avoid vendor juggling and stockouts.

• Comparable Quality to OEM Cartridges

It should be difficult for your customers to determine the difference between a page printed using an OEM cartridge, and an aftermarket one.

• Page Yields

Evidence that aftermarket cartridges are matching or exceeding OEM yields.

• 100% New Components

Is your customer receiving a new shell and new internal components, or are they used? There is a significant difference in both performance and quality.

BLI Tested

Cartridges should be tested and approved by Buyer’s Lab Inc., the industry’s most trusted third-party lab.

• Professional Packaging

What impression do your customers get when they receive and open your aftermarket cartridge packaging?

• Extended Yields

Does the manufacturer offer extended yield cartridges to maximize profitability on MPS and cost-per-page agreements?

• Quality Control

Does the manufacturer provide real-time quality control analysis and take a proactive approach to any potential issues?

• National Distribution

Can you deliver a product to customers with the distribution reach, accuracy, and speed they need?

• Industry Awards

Quality products earn a reputation among industry leaders. Have the cartridges been recognized by the community?

• Peer Review

If you asked fellow dealers about their experience, what would they say?

• Easy Returns

Does the manufacturer make you jump through hoops or complete endless paperwork to prove their cartridges are faulty?

Providing excellent service to your customers is the key to a profitable 2023! Selecting the right aftermarket toner partner will help you differentiate yourself from the competition, all while making a big difference to your customers and your bottom line in the coming new year.
