If you have accounts with more than one preferred shipper, itʼs best to have a separate label printer for each one. For established clubs, a carrier will usually provide a printer that meets its specifications at no charge. Follow the shipperʼs and manufacturerʼs instructions for setting up the equipment; then you can configure Manager to recognize it.
Note: Most shippers do not provide drivers or support for Zebra thermal printers on Macintosh platforms (OS X, iOS). If you use a Mac, youʼll need to print your shipping labels on plain paper, and affix them to outgoing packages in the transparent label envelopes that the shipper provides.
To set up a label printer:
In the Merchant list, select and open the record for your organization.
In the Merchant – Data Entry dialog, click the UPS, FedEx, or GSO tab as appropriate.
Select the correct Printer Type and Label Media.
Click Setup Printer and choose the label printer from the list of available printers, then click OK.
Note: If youʼre running Manager via a Remote Desktop Connection, be sure the local printer you select is marked “(redirect).”
To print shipping labels:
In the Transaction list, select the transactions for which you want to print labels.
From the Actions menu, choose Shipment : Create Label.
Manager creates a tracking number for the shipment and prints a shipping label. For further details, see Processing the release: Printing shipping labels.
Note: For FedEx only, you can create a tracking number and shipping label for FedEx pickup on a specified date in the future: choose Create Label for Future Date from the Actions menu.
