If you have a lot of shipments, we recommend using Shipmondo Print Client, which will give you the access to a number of advanced printing options.
Once installed, it runs in the background and communicates with your Shipmondo account.
After installing and configuring your print client, you'll be able to access the following features:
- Print your shipping labels faster as you don't have to open your browser's print dialog.
- Connect an unlimited number of printers to your Shipmondo account.
- Set it up so that shipping labels are printed automatically, immediately upon booking.
- If you're using our public API, you'll be able to control which printer should be used for printing of a specific label, from your 3rd party application.
- Create a file integration with Shipmondo
Our print client is a Windows application that you install on your computer.
If you're a Macbook user, there's a number of workarounds you can implement in order to be able to use Shipmondo's Print Client.

Install Shipmondo Print Client in 5 simple steps
Setting up your Shipmondo Print Client is a quick and easy task. Go through the following 5 steps and you'll be up and running in no time.
1 Generate API key
Log in to your Shipmondo account and go to Settings > API.
Click on Generate API keys if the 2 fields you can see under API access are empty.
You'll need those in step 4.
2 Download Shipmondo Print Client
Download the Print Client user app (setup.exe) here.
3 Install Shipmondo Print Client
Double-click on setup.exe and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.
4 Set up your Shipmondo Print Client
Start the Shipmondo desktop application and fill out the API user and API key with the keys generated in step 1.
Click on Save.
The rest of the fields should remain blank.
Printer settings (Required only for Zebra printers with ZPL format):
For each ZPL printer you wish to set up, a configuration file must be sent to the printer. This file contains the required images (carrier logos and such) and has the required font.
Go to Calibration and under ZPL configuration, select the printer you wish to configure from the drop-down list and then click Print. It may take a few minutes for the printer to be fully configured. When it's done, the printer will print a label and inform you that the setup is complete.
The program is now installed and set up correctly.
5 Verify that Windows service is running
Start the Shipmondo desktop app and verify that there's a server connection.
If the installation/setup is successful, an "ONLINE" badge will appear in the upper right corner. If any errors occur, these will be reported under Activity > Activities.
If there is no connection, try repeating step 1 from this guide.
N.B. If you have an older version of the print client installed, make sure it is uninstalled or the Windows service for it is stopped.
