How to print labels

Introduction

For every label you need to select a printer. You can use one printer for all labels, but it’s also possible to use a different printer for each label.

It’s possible to use multiple DYMO LabelWriters to print different labels for different purposes. You can use a DYMO LabelWriter at your office to print shipping labels, a LabelWriter in your physical store to print product labels and a different LabelWriter in your warehouse for packaging purposes.

1. Select printer

You need to select a printer for each label inside WooCommerce DYMO Print settings. Look for the “Printers”-tab.
