    Just recently purchased a New WF-3720 printer that uses #702 carts. I have looked all over for refillables or CISS. Can't find them anywhere. Any ideas? Maybe something else is compatible? I have refillables for my Artisan 837 and love them. What money savers! How about refilling the OEM's? Is it possible? Thanks.

    It would help if you stated your general location, such as what country you are in.

    A Google search brought up several OEM refilled or compatible cartridges for your printer. I did not read much but it appears there are lower cost alternatives to OEM new in the USA.

    An example of remanufactured filled OEM cartridges here. Have no idea the quality of these cartridges or this company.

    Thank you. I'm in the US. I followed your link for the carts. I must say that they are pretty expensive. I purchased a set of compatibles for quite a bit less. I would still like to find some empty refillables. I have a few bottles of my own ink that I can use. Or maybe I can find instructions to refill the OEM's.

    Did you try Google? The link I posted was not the only web site I found in my quick Google search. You will also find refill supplies for your printer on AliExpress out of China. I cannot comment on the quality of the products for your printer from there.

    You may be forging new territory here with your printer. Please report your results so we may all benefit from your experiences.

    I Googled like crazy and found no refillables for the 702 cartridge. That is why I purchased compatibles. Do I really want to buy from China? I did it one time and waited 3 months to receive my item. Like I said, I have the refill supplies. Just need the empty carts.

    The new reality is that for most desktop printers, ARC type or resettable chips are HISTORY. There are one time chips available. However, for Epsons, you must change the chip for each cart.You might be able to find hacked firmware to make the printer chipfree but when you run out of ink on a small desktop and the printhead gets air, you'll be swearing.
    GONE and I repeat GONE, finally are the old days of just buying any old printer and expect that you will be able to get refilling supplies.
    Expect the same for when the Maxify is replaced.

    Going forward, Epson and Canon wants the money up front, in cheap tank printers priced high. When they get their money up front for a printer, then you are free to do anything with it, thereafter. If they sell you an inexpensive printer up front, they need the back end profit on ink to make up for it.

    Chip makes have also wised up as well.

    The new reality.....Now isn't this what everybody said they preferred?

    Thanks all. I'll keep looking. Maybe I'll experiment with refilling the OEM's or compatibles when empty.
