    Ok. But how does one print the labels on a zebra label printer from that png image file of multiple labels?

    AND, how does one print a packing list with each label?

      Hi Dave,

      You can print PNG format labels with Zebra printer as well. Once you click on the “Print FedEx label” option (as shown above), you will be re-directed to “Print preview” option where all your labels will be there in a single page(as shown above), & if your zebra printer is configured, you can print your labels like any other documents.

      Regarding packing list: Our FedEx plugin does not have packing list feature. If you would want the packing slips for your orders, then you can try our Print invoice & packing slips plugin.

      Regards,
