The plugin uses standard WordPress hook and filter mechanisms throughout, and thus is highly customisable by developers. Do you want to test connecting your printer to Google Cloud Print, and testing printing from your WordPress website? Follow this link to the free Google Cloud Print plugin, and this link to learn more about Google Cloud Print. Further plugin features:
- Add phone / email address to invoice: this plugin will cause the customer’s phone number and email address to be added to the template of the “WooCommerce PDF Invoices and Packing Slips” plugin (the phone number is especially useful for delivery drivers).
- Debugging support: for any order, a debugging log can be sent to email addresses which you configure, to trace the progress of the printout.
- Print job control: as with all Google Cloud Print jobs, you can view your print queue from the Google Cloud Print control panel, from any web browser.
- Multiple copies: you can configure how many copies you wish to be printed.
- Multiple printers: the print-outs can be sent to more than one printer (including Google Drive as a PDF)
- Customisable output: you can create your own output templates, or use any of the pre-built ones (including configurable logo, footer, terms and conditions and header areas).
- Test print: you can send a test printout to your configured printer at any time.

Been running this for a few years. It along with the PDF Invoice & Packingslip plugin are something I forget we have installed! Over the past 4 years they’ve just worked without any hassle. They are absolutely essential to our order process flow.
We’ve customised the PDF template to include a qr code and use a PI+barcode scanner to update the progress of orders. Because of this plugin we manage to process about 99% of orders without going near a pc. Even if we didn’t have that customisation I’d still recommend this plugin. For anyone who needs to pack/send orders this saves you time.
One thing I would say (and it’s in no way the plugins fault or problem), our printer (Samsung C1810) has twice decided to suddenly not play well with Google Cloud Print, once for a day and once for over 3 weeks. It’s those times you really appreciate how hassle free this plugin makes printing the packing slips and how reliant we are on it just working.
