The short answer is nearly ALL printers are compatible with ReadyToShip.

Whether you are printing a Label, Manifest, Invoice of Pick Slip, ReadyToShip generates these as a PDF document. So they can be printed to any printer that you have connected.

Will ReadyToShip work with Inkjet printers? 

We usually recommend a Laser or Thermal printer for printing shipping labels, as these printers will ensure a crisp clear barcode on labels.

Inkjet printers sometimes don't product a barcode that is high enough quality for courier drivers to scan when they pick up your parcels.

Having said that, ReadyToShip can use multiple printers, so you can send labels to a Thermal or Laser printer, and you can print pick lists/invoices to an Inkjet if you like.

Which Thermal printers does ReadyToShip support?

ReadyToShip will support any thermal printer that can print a PDF document.

The most common Thermal printers are

  • Dymo 4XL (for shipping labels) : order one from us here
  • Zebra printers (Most popular would be the GC420d/GK420d)
  • Bixolon
  • Brother
  • and many more

Can I print A6 (4x6") labels with ReadyToShip?

Yes, most of our carriers support A6 labels (which are the most common size for Thermal printers). Label formats can be changed in the Printer Settings for most carriers.


ReadyToShip also supports the direct printing of pick lists, invoices and labels from our app straight to a printer of your choice using our DirectPrint app.
