In Australia the average cost per page across the board, from the Manufacturer Directs on Full Color Multifunctionals is:-

0.01 Black Including Toner
0.10 Color Including Toner

However Sharp and Toshiba in particular wil go down to 0.008 on Black, and 0.08 on Colour.

Dealers have to try and match this, but in most cases are missing out, when competing against the directs.
