Soldster Set-Up

This page is still a work in progress, please check back

The Soldster software uses Dymo printers to enable printing of inventory labels and shipping labels. The recommended printer for inventory labels is the Dymo Labelwriter 450. The recommended printer for printing Stamps.com shipping labels is the Dymo 4XL. Both of these printers can be purchased at most office supply stores such as Staples or Office Depot. They can be purchased on eBay from any number of eBay sellers. You may even be able to find them on Amazon, though we would prefer you support eBay.

Here at Soldster labs, we use both printers in the daily operation of the Soldster software.

Setting up the printers is easy. Follow the quick setup instructions included with the new printer. Once your printer is connected via USB to your computer, you need to install the DYMO CONNECT software (for Windows). If you use Apple products, download for MAC.

Once you have installed the software, you should see a little light blue square in the bottom right of your screen, in the so-called 'system tray.' This is your Dymo web service. If it is in the system tray, it is running properly. If it is not there, you won't be able to print labels. You can manually launch the web service from your Windows start menu if it is not running. If you do not know how to do that, contact us. It is easy.

We recommend that you add the Dymo Web Service to your Windows startup folder, so it automatically restarts the service whenever you reboot your computer. There are tutorials online (Google HOW TO ADD A STARTUP SERVICE TO WINDOWS 10). We will try to add step-by-step instructions here eventually but until then there are good guides online already.

Go to https://www.iguide.net. In the list of recent searches click the LABEL icon at far right of any listing. A print window will pop up. If the pop-up window does not have a printer chosen, choose your LabelWriter 450. Click the PRINT button. Your Dymo LabelWriter 450 should spit out an inventory label. If it does, you are good to go. If it does not, your Dymo Web Service is not running.
