  3. Once you have opened up the Star CloudPRNT settings page, you will be given a unique Server URL which you need to copy.
  4. Next setup your compatible Star printer onto your network and run a self-test on the printer to get its IP address.
  5. Type the printer IP address into a web browser to access its web interface and then login (default username “root” and password “public”).
  6. Navigate to the “Star CloudPRNT” section and enable the CloudPRNT service, then paste the URL you copied earlier into the “Server URL” field.
  7. Press “Submit” then navigate to the “Save” section.
  8. Choose “Save –> Configuration printing –> Restart device” and the printer will reboot (this can take up to 2 minutes).
  9. Once the printer has rebooted, go back to your Star CloudPRNT settings page and refresh it, you will notice your printer will be populated in the printer list which means your printer is now setup and ready to use.
  10. Finally, you can now enable the CloudPRNT service within the Star CloudPRNT settings page, once enabled all orders placed through WooCommerce will also be printed out on your Star printer.

Which printer models are supported?

Supported printer models are:

  • Star TSP650II with HIX interface
  • Star mC-Print3 (required plugin version 1.1.0 or later)
  • Star mC-Print2 (required plugin version 1.1.0 or later)
  • Star TSP700II with HIX interface
  • Star TSP800II with HIX interface (currently limited to 80mm paper width support)
  • Star SP700 with HIX interface
Can I print my local language characters?

Yes, you can enable UTF-8 text encoding if you have a compatible printer model to resolve typical language specific character issues.
Please use the plugin settings page to enable UTB-8 mode.

Models with UTF-8 support are the TSP650II, mC-Print3 and mC-Print2.
These printers cover most Latin, Cyrilic, Greek and CJK characters, although not all characters can be supported by all device models and for TSP654II a firmware update may be required. Please talk with Star for advice if necessary.

Can I modify the print job design/layout?

At this time, modifying the print job layout is possible only by directly editing the plugin PHP source code. This is entirely permitted by the GPLv3 license terms.
Your local Star Micronics support contact may be able to offer some assistance.

How can I add an image to the top or end of my print?

Images must be pre-stored inside the printer FlashROM memory in order to be printed bu this plugin. Once stored, they will have logo number/id, which can be input into the “Printer Logo Settings” settings area to enable top and/or bottom logo printing.
Storing images inside the Print FlashROM is possible with a software utility provided by Star Micronics, included with the standard indows driver package. These can be downloaded from the Star Micronics web site.

As this is the only plugin for Woocommerce Star printer...I must say the support is pathetic...they respond in 3-4 days ..if you sent them email ..only GOD knows when they will reply back...take hours to get hold off them over the phone..they just want to sale printer and their support ends there...if you thinking of using their printer need to do research by yourself..expecting help from them or support from them would be a huge mistake.
