How to Integrate Google Cloud Print

Last Updated: Apr 12, 2017 09:50AM PDT

The Google Cloud Print Integration is an option for clients looking for an automatic print out of order confirmations. Your print out will mimic the same format as any order confirmation email.

Note: Google Cloud Print is a beta program hence not recommended. Many customers have experienced issues with this integration, so we recommend using an HP ePrinter instead when possible, which is far more reliable. See this article for details.

Google Cloud-Ready Printers

For the best Google Cloud Print experience, we recommend you use a Cloud-Ready printer. Cloud-Ready printers connect directly to the web and don’t require a PC to set up: you can connect one to your Google Cloud Print account in seconds, and immediately start printing to it.

  1. HP ePrint Printers: Google Cloud Print works with all HP ePrint printers. Simply register with your ePrint email address on our HP registration page.

  2. Kodak Printer: If your printer is a Kodak Cloud-Ready Printer, follow these instructions on Kodak’s website for Setting Up Google Cloud Print.

  3. Epson Printers: Specifically, Epson XP 400 is a great option. For Epson printers, follow the instructions for Setting up Google Cloud Print. See more information here.
