They can push, but I aint doin’ it.

We used Veeqo for a while when they were offering lower postage rates than Amazon. One of the drawbacks was that Veeqo charged our credit card whenever the total charges approached $100, but was not able to provide us with invoices. No idea if that’s still the case.

Works for us, our Zebra is attached directly to our Shipping System. We use it for ShipStation, and for Amazon Shipping. Never a problem since AZ added USPS Ground DisAdvantage.

Could be the OP is on the wrong forum for the answer. The NSFE, simple setup question for the printer. I know one forum that has Seasoned Sellers that could help…

I will say one thing about Ground Advantage, we are enjoying the cubic option. Not exactly delighting the Amazon Customer since we used to use Priority. Oh well, said while stuffing profits in pockets.

The problem is with people trying to use 2-up labels and a laser printer. For those using a thermal printer, nothing has changed because you print in PNG format anyway (I assume), but for those of us who don’t, it’s all fouled up.

You tell it (or ask it nicely) - Please print in PDF format

It says ‘ok!’ and then prints in PNG format which does. not. work. at. all.

I constantly have to change back to portrait/custom 120% for packing slips, then landscape/default for labels. And back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and… :angry: :angry:
