Choosing the label printer is an important stage because without it you cannot buy shipping labels for your store. You can use various devices such as desktop, iPhone, or Android to select the label printer that you want to use. But to achieve the highest efficiency, Shopify advise you to use Shopify supported hardware when printing your shipping labels.

Some labels can only be printed by a specific type of printer, because of this reason, before printing a label, you need to make sure that the model of printer that you choose matches the one that you have. On Shopify there are two Label formats for you to choose from:

  • 8.5 × 11 inch paper for desktop printers: You can select this section if you want to print your labels using a desktop printer, you can also choose this to print two labels per page by using multiple shipping labels.
  • 4 × 6 inch label for label printers: You can select this section if you want to use a label printer such as Dymo, Rollo, or other to print your labels.

I help you understand more about the chosen label printer process; I have prepared some steps on how to choose your label printer on Desktop, iPhone, and Android.
