  • All the printers that are connected to the system/PC/Laptop, Print node will automatically detect those printers. 
  • The same list of printers will then be auto-populated in printer settings option in Orderhive.
  • Orderhive gives the liberty to select different printers for printing shipping labels or Invoices.
  • You can select the required Printer from the drop down for Shipping Labels and Invoices and then click on Save.


Along with the printers, weighing scales are also used widely to determine the weight or mass of an object.

Different weighing scales can be synced to Print node, in order to auto-populate the weight of the product in Orderhive while buying a shipment label.

In case there are certain weighing scales connected to your system/PC/Laptop, while shipping the order you can click on “Get” to fetch the weight of the item placed on the weighing scale.
