Most Miva Merchant store owners want to be able to ship their own products and this requires setting up and configuring a Zebra Thermal printer to print labels. It is as easy as setting up a normal printer even though it prints a different medium. This applies only to those running the Windows operating system, which is what I use.
Are you having trouble printing your shipping labels in Miva Merchant?
If you have installed the Zebra printer ( supports ZPL II language ) and the necessary drivers for the OS per the instructions and your printer is displayed in your Devices settings in Windows and you still cannot get the printer to show up on the ‘Print Shipping Label’ link in Miva Merchant there probably is a simple solution. Java is probably blocking the ‘Java Applet’ from running in your browser.
Java Runtime Environment, a software that allows us to efficiently connect to other computers and fully integrate to other intranet applications and other e-business solutions is installed on virtually all computers. There is a simple solution.
You need to add your website URL to the ‘Exception Site List’ in the Java Contol Panel. You access it through the Programs of your Settings or via the search bar. The Exception Site List feature was introduced in the release of Java 7 Update 51. By adding application URL to the Exception list allows users to run Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) that would normally be blocked by security checks. The exception site list is managed in the Security tab of the Java Control Panel.
The list is shown in the tab. To add, edit or remove a URL from the list, click Edit Site List in the Security Tab.
To add a URL:
- Click on the Edit Site List button.
- Click the Add in the Exception Site List window.
- Click in the empty field under Location field to enter the URL.
- Click OK to save the URL that you entered. If you click Cancel, the URLs are not saved.
- Click Continue on the Security Warning dialog.
You should be good to go and print your labels!
