@Ren7 hi, I am new shopify user.

 

I have read this thread and I have the same issue (well, it's completely inexperience not an "issue|"

 

Can you help me?

 

I use a franking machine for my post and so I want to only do the following:

 

Bulk print packing slips / invoices  + shipping address on an integrated label. Peel the address of and put it on the envelope. Frank the envelope and post.

 

I have downloaded order print but can't seem to do this.

 

Thanks

Hi,
My problem was something in my settings. I’m sorry I can’t remember exactly where it was. I found it through trial and error. Unfortunately Shopify support was not helpful. I will let you know if I find it!

Hi @SaSstore

Bulk label printing is doable directly from your admin, no need to use the order printer app for the labels themselves. Here is an overview (including video) of how it's done. The steps are as follows: 

  1. From the orders list, select up to 20 orders you’re ready to ship.
  2. Preview each shipment, including the carrier, shipping service, and package. Adjust or fill in any missing information as needed.
  3. Buy all of your shipping labels in one click, then print them as a single PDF.
  4. Skip the line at the post office, and drop off all your orders at once.

As for packing slips and invoices, this is where the Order Printer app comes in. You can perform these actions in bulk (up to 50) by utilizing Bulk Actions in your Shopify admin.

Let me know if I can help clarify any of that!

Hi @rookistudio

I detailed how to change the formatting for the labels above. If this wasn't the solution you were looking for, let me know and we can take a closer look at what's going on.

Hi, similar to the original post, I am trying to figure out if it's possible print out address labels with my shop's return address in 4x6" format. Even better, could I buy postage and print labels to a segment of my customers?

This is different than when a customer makes a purchase! I understand how to purchase postage and print the shipping label as part of the order fulfillment process. I am trying to send value add items to a select group of my customers and want to print labels. It would be ideal if I could purchase postage and print the labels. Can I do this thru my store or do I need an app?

thanks, getHeliGirl

Hello @getHeliGirl

Thanks for reaching out! Based on your description, I believe you're right that an App would be the way to go. I find one that appears to fit the bill, it enables you to select and print multiple addresses which you should be able to configure by customer/type. 

Check out Super Address Labels from the app store. The nice thing about this app is that it enables you to create labels based on your own templates or you can select from some of the most popular brands like Dymo and Avery. They are also completely customizable including the ability to add elements such as barcodes. The app is only $4.99 and comes with a nice long trial of 21 days so you have ample time to test it out and see if it'll suit your needs. 

Would love to know your thoughts!

Ah, interesting will check out this potential solution.

I did try another workaround - I went in to my customer list and selected
certain criteria, then exported as a .csv format file.

Then went in to Word and created labels via the mail merge feature. It was
a little clumsy, but it worked.

thanks much for your help.

Hi again! 

Wow, what a clever workaround, nice job figuring that out. Have you had a chance to try my solution above and did it work for you? The only other thing I might suggest is to attempt from a different browser all together. Chrome tends to be optimal with the platform and some other browsers might fall short. Let me know how that goes!

Hi Ren7,

 

This isn't helpful - we are talking about UK shipping labels and UK users of Shopify dont seem to ahve the ability to benefit from being able to purchase label printing on shopify - again, this is not talking about shipping labels, but more for printing solely a customer's address onto a 'sticky label', in bulk.
