Enjoy some terrific savings here on this genuine Canon PGI-520BK Black Ink Cartridge. These inkjet cartridges come directly from Canon's Image Laboratories Plant and have been created explicitly for use in several different Canon Inkjet Pixma Home series colour printers.

Compatible Printers

Suitable for use in Canon Pixma iP-3600, Pixma iP-4600, Pixma iP-4700, Pixma MP-540, Pixma MP-550, Pixma MP-560, Pixma MP-620, Pixma MP-630, Pixma MP-640, Pixma MP-980, Pixma MP-990, Pixma MX-860, Pixma MX-870 printers and multi-function devices.


Each cartridge comes filled with Canon's Black ink to produce detailed, crisp, sharp lines for quality and text work and a full shading gamut of vibrant tones and hues for exceptional colour expression with extra smooth gradations.

  • This PGI-520BK Black Ink Cartridge is part of an ink development system in the printer. Sets with dedicated cartridges for each colour as is the case here, deliver an ideal mix of quality,  performance and economy making them particularly suitable for premium quality jobs demanded by the busy office, school or home. Plus because this cartridge has a higher capacity tank, you'll see increases in total productivity and lower cost because you will be able to do longer runs between changes and have less overall waste.

  • Made to be used in Canon Inkjet Pixma Home series printers and multi-function centres.

  • The print quality of this genuine Canon PGI-520BK Black Ink Cartridge is as expected from Canon. Every print is outstanding and perfect for a specific high-end business and commercial uses that demand the very highest quality print output.

  • Thermal inkjet is the technology that determines how the ink gets converted into a printed piece of work on the page. It does this by firstly drawing the ink from the ink cartridge down into a set of microscopic nozzles inside a part known as a printhead. This print head acts as the ink applicator to the page. These nozzles also have a micro-heating element built-in, and when switched on, the ink in the nozzle expands, and this produces a droplet which is forced out of the end of the nozzle and out onto the paper. As the ink is applied directly to the page from thousands of microscopic nozzles, the resolution is markedly superior to laser and dot matrix type printing technologies, making inkjet the preferred option when quality is demanded or preferred.

  • Ink additives as part of the particular Pigment + Dye-based ink blend used in these cartridges maintain ink viscosity to ensure even and high page saturation from the first page to the last across the life of the cartridge. Other polymers in the mix act as a coolant to prevent printhead overstress failure.

  • Designed for continuous running up to print speeds of 26 (ppm) pages per minute without failure.

  • Utilise this Black Ink Cartridge with advanced printer setting alterations and particular media to produce even higher vibrancy for vivid photo artwork and prints. Additionally, for text and fine line graph work, operators can use other settings that can reduce ink consumption and thereby extend the life of the cartridge. This is known as DRAFT mode, and it essentially tones down the concentration levels of the ink output by switching off some of the print-head heating elements. Ideal for inter-office printing applications that do not necessarily require the very best print resolution.

  • Each one of these Canon PGI-520BK Black Ink Cartridges comes fully packed, and vacuum sealed to extend longevity and prevent leakages and potential ink blotching.

  • The colour of this Genuine PGI-520BK Ink Cartridge is Black.

  • Get up to 324 pages at 5% coverage*.

I have been using Inkjet Wholesale for several years and my orders always arrive promptly at a highly competitive price. What's not to like?

Frequently Asked Questions

Please click on the icon below to reveal answer

Will this printer cartridge fit my printer?
Just click on the tab menu to the left called Compatible Printers. You'll see the list of printer models that this cartridge will suit. If you do NOT see your printer listed, there is a good chance that this cartridge will NOT fit your printer. The best way to be absolutely sure is type your printer model into the search bar at the top of the page and click enter. The results will show you your exact printer model, and then you just click on VIEW PRODUCTS to see all the cartridges to suit your printer. Failing this, please contact us for assistance by clicking on the the Contact link at the very top of the web page.
If I order this cartridge now, when will I get it?
If the current time is before 3.00PM, then it will be delivered within 24-48 hours depending on your location. For 99% of orders dispatched the same day, they are usually delivered the next day. If you're located in rural and regional areas these delivery times maybe marginally longer. In any case the worst case scenario should be no longer than 72 hours. If the current time is afte 3.00PM, then your order will be dispatched the next day, so you'd expect to see it still within 48-72 hours from now.
What will it cost to deliver this cartridge to my door to me?

If you were to purchase just the one single printer cartridge, then the shipping cost incurred would be from $8.95 upwards. For most small items the charge is $8.95 and this increases according to the weight of the product. To be exactly sure, just add the product to your cart and you'll see the shipping charge. Unfortunately, our low prices means we are unable to absorb the crazy shipping prices on single items charged by couriers and Australia Post. However, if you were to purchase this cartridge as part of a combo or bulk buy, then the shipping would be FREE! Please have a look under the FREE SHIPPING OFFERS tab for more details. Plus, when ordering more than one item model, if one item has the FREE shipping and the other does not, then FREE shipping applies to the whole order. We do not charge handling or packaging fees.

What if you don't have product in stock?
We will inform you by email and message centre of any orders placed on back-order (for example, for new stock that are yet to arrive).
How can I contact you?

You can contact us directly by phoning us on 1800 465 538 or by clicking HERE.

How can you sell them so cheap?
Our cartridges come straight from the factory - therefore - NO MIDDLE MAN to raise the price!!
What's the difference between this generic cartridge and an original OEM one?

Original OEM - is an abbreviation for Original Equipment Manufacturer. When you see a product described as OEM, original or genuine, that means that it is a new name-brand printer cartridge manufactured by the big name brand printer manufactuers like from Epson, Canon, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, etc.

'Generic' indicates that the product is manufactured or remanufactured by a third party rather than the actual manufacturer of the machine.

How many pages will this printer cartridge print?

This varies depending on many issues: Percentage of page covered, Quality of Image, Size of Image, Type of Paper Printed on. Manufacturers normally show figures based upon 5% page coverage. Our SCI brand generic cartridges typically print more than the original branded product simply because we put more ink into the cartridge at the factory. Please refer to the description section on this page to view more details.

Does this original cartridge come with a guarantee?

It sure does. Customer satisfaction is our priority. For all genuine original brand catridges (i.e. manufactured by the printer brand manufacturers) the gurantee is in line with respective manufacturers guarantees and as accorded by the Australian Consumer law (ACL). This usually 12 months from purchase assuming they are within a valid expiry date.

What is the shelf life of this original printer cartridge?

Original cartridges have a shelf life at least of 24 months after purchase and we guarantee this by using a stock rotation system that ensures your cartridge reaches you as soon as possible after being manufactured.

In the description section for this printer cartridge, the word "original" is used to help describe the Manufacturer type, can you explain what this means?

"Original" is the term referred to describe printer cartridges manufactured by the same company that makes the printer. Original are also known as "Genuine" or 'OEM"

Lowest Price Guarantee - Find an identical stocked item at a lower price and we'll beat it by 5%. (Excludes stock liquidatons, customer special orders and contract pricing.)

Our Guaranteed Low Price Promise!

Our price check team are constantly working to make sure that we have the lowest wholesale prices in Australia so you'll never need to pay retail price again. We are so confident of being able to bring you the lowest prices ever; you're shopping orders are now permanently safeguarded by our Guaranteed Low Price Promise! This means you can shop confidently knowing you'll be getting the lowest prices possible every day at Inkjet Wholesale. However in the unlikely event that you come across a cheaper advertised price on an identical stocked item that is available for purchase with a competitor - even if it's on sale, we will not only match it, we'll beat it! That's our Guaranteed Lowest Price Promise to you! If you've found a cheaper total price just submit a price challenge.

What items does the Guaranteed Lowest Price Promise (GLPP) apply to?
All identical products with identical terms and SKU numbers and conditions that are stocked at Inkjet Wholesale and in stock at our competitor.
What items (if any) are excluded from the GLPP?
  • Non identical products (those where the manufacturer SKU codes are not matched)
  • Bundle deals i.e. where for example computers and peripherals are packaged as one item.
  • Cash back and promotion and coupon code offers
  • Resellers
  • Customer special orders
  • Contract Pricing
  • Competitor clearance and genuine insolvency type auctions products

Inkjet Wholesale reserves the right to limit the quantity of products available in any instance for price-matching and beating at its discretion. The Lowest Price Guarantee does not extend to resellers.

What about online stores?

Identical products are price matched against online stores but as with any other kind of store, the item must be currently in stock and available for purchasing immediately. When price matching online stores, allowance must be granted to also account for the added cost of delivery and how that contributes to the final overall price. If the identical product can be purchased and delivered through an online store for a total price lower than our advertised price including such shipping, then we guarantee to beat such a price.

How do I redeem a claim if I believe I have found a lower total price on an identical item stocked?

If you've found a cheaper total price, we welcome the opportunity to win your business, just submit a price challenge
