An ordinary printer becomes capable of network printing when the same is connected to a network of computers and is made accessible from different computers. When the users have multi computers in their home or office and do not require a printer for each computer this method of printing is the best option for them. For those who require this facility it is very easy to avail the same. In order to print from the computer that has its printer connected to the network the user must have credit on his account with the service provider. Users can purchase credit using debit cards or credit cards. Since unused credit cannot be reclaimed the users may avoid purchasing excess credit. The users can view their credit and debit history from their printing account. This facility also enables the users to track the usage as well as check the payments.
The users of the network printing facility can make their payments at pay-stations that are kept at various locations. From the screen of the Pay Station the customers can get the instructions to credit their account. The printing is done on both sides of A4 black and white. Those who want to change the size to A3 or make it single sided or want to change the color may select the print properties accordingly thereby altering the default settings. The changes must be made prior to feeding the content for printing.
Whenever the user wants to print a document his print content is sent to the print queue. The prints will be available for collection up to 4 hours. The users can collect their prints from the particular location. In case the print is not collected within 4 hours it may be deleted automatically and in such cases the user will not be charged. Once the content is printed and the print is collected from the user his account with the network printing company will be debited. In order to collect the print the customer should log in to the printer by entering his username and password pertaining to his account with the service provider.
