Printing labels using thermal printer
If a vendor is configured to print EPL (thermal) shipping labels, by default you'll just see a download with extension .EPL
To configure your computer to print the labels automatically on the thermal printer, follow these instructions (Windows only):
Share a locally connected USB thermal printer using Windows Sharing, and give the shared printer a meaningful name (ex. LP2844)
Create a batch file, for example print.bat, with this line:
COPY %1 \\MYCOMPUTER\LP2844
Where MYCOMPUTER is the name of your computer and LP2844 is the name of the printer share you've created in step 1.
When you have downloaded .EPL file, choose to open it using the .bat file you've created in step 2.
Additionally, you could create a Windows association of .EPL files with print.bat file.
