WooCommerce DYMO Print
This documentation is created for DYMO Label Software. We advise to use DYMO Connect for Windows. We’re currently working on new documentation. However the principles are still the same, so the documentation below will help you also if you use DYMO Connect.
Mac users: We advise to use DYMO Label Software version 8.7.5 or above.
- Make sure WooCommerce is installed.
- Download the .zip file.
- Upload the entire ‘woocommerce-dymo-print’ directory into the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Configure the plugin by going to WooCommerce -> DYMO Print.
- Enter the license key for this plugin in our WP Fortune plugin to get support and updates.
Before you start using WooCommerce DYMO Print it’s important to configure the plugin correctly. You can find the WooCommerce DYMO Print settings page by click on (or hovering over) ‘WooCommerce’ in the WordPress admin panel and click on ‘DYMO Print’. You’ll now see the settings page where you can configure the plugin to your needs. You can define labels for shipping or for billing purposes.
Step 1: Choose which data to print
By default only the customer address (shipping or billing) is printed on the label. You can choose which data you want to print for shipping and billing labels.
Step 2: Label type and layout
Import a label file which is created in DYMO Connect (Windows)or DYMO Label Software (Mac) (download from DYMO.com). Make sure you’re running the latest version. You’ll find more information about how to create a label file below.
