Configure ConnectEasy for Printing

ConnectEasy provides a direct connection to your computer's printers.

Before configuring ConnectEasy, make sure that you have installed the application on your computer. We have OS-specific installation guides - click below for your system:

Once you have installed ConnectEasy, you can configure the program to use unique printers for each type of document: labels, packing slips, pick lists, and customs forms. By sending print jobs directly to your printer, there is no longer a need to display PDF versions of your labels and documents in another browser tab. Just click the Print Now button and everything prints automatically to the correct printer! [Learn more about ConnectEasy.]

  1. Select CONNECTEASY located under the DEVICES and HARDWARE section.

    New ConnectEasy Setup

    By default, all printed output is sent to a PDF file if ConnectEasy has never been used. When you print to PDF, a new browser tab will open to display your document and you must then choose to print again from your browser via the print icon or command.

  3. Click the Add Printer drop-down menu, to see a list of your printers that ConnectEasy can use.

  4. Select the printer (and computer) pairs you want to use, and assign the necessary carrier labels and document types to your printer using the radio buttons on the right. This will send each selection to the matching printer or PDF.

    The example above shows:

    • ZDesigner GC420d(EPL) Printer - will print all the Domestic Label options

    • Brother HL-L2395DW series Printer - will print International Labels & Customs Forms

    • PDF - Packing Slips and Pick Lists will generate in a PDF

  5. Consolidators

    The “Consolidators” column is only for Domestic Consolidators. International Consolidators will still go to the international printer. This is because we offer different options for the domestic carriers and only one for all international labels.

  6. Click Save.
