How do I configure and use this plugin?

There are three things to do to being using this plugin, beyond installing and activating it:

  • Firstly, you need to set up your printer with PrintNode. You will need to a) open an account with them, on a free or paid plan, b) Download and install their software on the computer that is driving your printer, and test printing successfully through it from your account. To learn about how to do this, go to the PrintNode website. Come back to this documentation once you have successfully printed a test page to your printer from your account on the PrintNode website.
  • Secondly, you need to connect your website to PrintNode. In your WordPress dashboard, go to the WooCommerce > PrintNode > Settings page. Enter your PrintNode API key by following the instructions, and then save your settings. Then choose which printers you want to use in WooCommerce > PrintNode > Printers, and save your settings there also.
  • Thirdly, you need to choose which print-outs to send to PrintNode when an order is completed. This is done in your WordPress dashboard, in the WooCommerce > PrintNode > Settings page. You simply need to check all the boxes for all the print-outs which you wish. To customise the print-outs, follow the links shown (and see the section below).
