SolidShip (Web Solution): The Solid Commerce Shipping Client

Before printing shipping labels from the SolidShip web solution, you need to install our Shipping Client onto your computer. The Shipping Client is a small app that allows us to access your computer's default printer so that we can automatically use it when printing labels.

The Shipping Client is designed to run in the background of your computer at all times. If you close it, you will need to relaunch it in order to print labels.

An Important Note for Firefox Users!

IMPORTANT!
Firefox users - Firefox manages its settings differently than other browsers. As a result, we cannot automatically add our Microsoft certificate during the installation of the Solid Commerce Shipping Client.

We are currently working on an alternative way to add the certificate automatically. In the meantime, you will need to add it manually before you can print labels. Instructions for this easy one-time process are provided in: SolidShip - Amazon Label Printing: Printing Labels From Firefox (Adding the Shipping Client Certificate).

Troubleshooting When the Shipping Client Installation Window Appears During Shipping

If the Shipping Client isn't running, and you try to print a shipping label, the Shipping Client installation overlay window will appear. You don't need to reinstall the client, simply relaunch it.

1) Open File Explorer.

2) Select your (C:) drive from the This PC menu.

3) Open Program Files (x86) -> Solid Commerce -> Solid Commerce Label Printing Agent.

4) Double click on SC.Shipping.PrintingAgent.exe.

Depending on your Windows settings, you may or may not see the .exe file extension.
