OP allows you to limit the amount of pages that may be printed by a printer. The current account represents the total cost available for printing. The quota can be turned off if you do not wish to limit customer printing. OP allows you to reset a quota to a fixed amount at the end of each day, week or month. There is also the option of increasing the balance with OP, which allows their existing balance to roll over.

OP offers a variety of restrictions (rules) that can be enabled on a per printer basis. Printing is cancelled if the print exceeds the maximum allowable print limit specified for a printer. Further restrictions settings include the count of pages, the document title (e.g., restricted words), color and the print job size.

Setting the cost per a page. OP allows you to charge for print jobs based on the size of the paper used to print the job. For example, you could set a cost of $0.08 per page for A4 sized pages and $0.10 for legal-sized pages. OP provides a variety of ways to charge for black-and-white and color printing using different modes: standard, cost per sheet, cost per square unit or cost per paper length.
