I printed the orders I received on WooCommerce to the kitchen receipt printer.

The environment I used is as follows.

Setup

View your WordPress site with WooCommerce installed.

Install and activate Star CloudPRNT for WooCommerce from the WordPress admin screen.

star-cloudprnt-for-woocommerce

Open [Settings] > [Star CloudPRNT for WooCommerce Settings], and copy [Server URL].

Star CloudPRNT for WooCommerce Settings

Open the printer settings screen of mC-Print3. Then, go to the [CloudPRNT] setting screen and enter the [CloudPRNT Service], [Server URL] and [Polling time] fields.

By the way, paste the URL copied by WordPress into the [Server URL] field.

CloudPRNT

Back to WordPress admin screen, then open [Star CloudPRNT for WooCommerce Settings].

Once you select ENABLE for field [CloudPRNT] and select your printer for field [Selected Printer], save it.

Printer

Now you are ready to go.

Try

Let's try it out and order something from WooCommerce.

The receipt should be printed from the printer as shown in the following video.

Have fun!👍

Note

In the demo in the video above, I wanted to change the text to be printed to another language, so I created an alternative plugin.

If you want to do what I did, try this plugin instead of Star CloudPRNT for WooCommerce.
