How to: Integrate your Printer w/ ShippingEasy on Mac (ConnectEasy Method)

Created:   |   Updated:

ConnectEasy is an application you run on your computer that enables you to easily print labels directly to your printer from the ShippingEasy application - saving time for individual label printing to either a thermal or laser printer. Before you start printing, be sure to adjust your label print settings to setup single page prints.

Installation:

  1. Go to the ShippingEasy SETTINGS page and select Printers under HARDWARE & DEVICES.

  2. Select the "Download for Mac" link:

    NOTE: If ConnectEasy is already running, you may be prompted to shut it down. If ConnectEasy is already installed, you may be prompted to uninstall the existing version.
  3. After the installer downloads, open the installer for the program.  You'll more than likely find the installer in your "Downloads" folder. Click the "Open" button when prompted.
  4. You'll see that the installer is preparing for the installation process:

  8. On the Sign-in screen you must specify the ConnectEasy Identifier (E-mail) and Pass Phrase (Password) that are displayed on the ShippingEasy PRINTER CONFIGURATION page.  After you copy those values in (you may need to select the "command" + "c" to copy and "command" + "v" keys to copy and paste the credentials), then click "Next":

That's it! Installation complete. Now you'll be able to use the "Print Now" button on the READY TO SHIP page.

NOTE:To make sure ConnectEasy is running, you should see a very small icon (green and orange) at the top of your computer screen. To quit ConnectEasy, right click on it and click "Quit". To reopen it you need to find it in the folder you saved it to (in the case above, we saved it to "Applications") or you can search for it in the Spotlight search tool on the top right hand corner of your screen.
