Google Cloud Print to be deprecated 12/31/2020
Google has announced they will be deprecating their Cloud Print service on 12/31/2020. After that date, you will no longer be able to use this service to access your printers. We recommend you familiarize yourself with an alternate printing method before the service is shut down.
ShipStation includes the ability to print your ShipStation documents using Google Cloud Print.
This article will guide you through registering your printer with the Chrome browser and setting Google Cloud Print as your default print setting. Find links to further Google Cloud Print resources at the end of this article.
Before you begin:
Check if your printer is compatible with Google Cloud Print and updated with the latest firmware (if needed). Check this list of Could-print ready printers.
Make sure you're working on a supported system (can be the following versions or newer): Android 4.3, iOS 7.0, OS X 10.7, Windows 8.1/8/7/Vista/XP, and Linux.
Have a secure Gmail account and its related password.
Install Google Chrome, if not already installed. (While other browsers will also work, use Chrome to ensure the best experience with Google Cloud Print.)
Register the printer with the Google Cloud.
Ensure the printer is in a Ready state, is connected to a wired or wireless local network (the same as your Chromebook, laptop, or notebook), and is properly configured.
Please NOTE: ShipStation does not provide troubleshooting support for Google Cloud Print. Please visit the Google Cloud Print help centre for assistance with any issues you may encounter.
