You did not taking the advice you were given, we clearly stated to buy through AliExpress and not Alibaba.com.
You can use your OEM carts first then when near empty transfer the chip from the compatible carts and then refill, refunds are never given on Alibaba for single purchases, accept your mistake and move on..
"accept your mistake"
Wow, if you look back in the thread, the SECOND post (stratman ) indicated
i should look at "Refillable, larger capacity cartridges. Third party ARC cartridges on Alibaba"
No one (YOU) countered that direction, the 20 day later stratman on july 26th stated i should direct my question "at The Hat who does buy from Alibaba and refills his Maxify"
Again, you didnt not You did not make any definitive statement countering that statement either.
You responded with links to certain products on Aliexpress, by then i had already ordered from Alibaba, and at NO point did you anyone say specifically, Do NOT Buy from Alibaba.
I have no issue if i dont get a refund, in fact i think i figured out how these work anyway, but to imply that i somehow intentionally did not follow direction and purchased from Alibaba is ludicrous.
