How to generate WooCommerce Dispatch Label

WebToffee’s Print Invoice, Packing Slip, Delivery Note & Label Plugin for WooCommerce allows you to print and generate dispatch labels for your store very easily.  All the integral shipment documents like the PDF invoices, packing slips, delivery notes, and shipping /address/ dispatch labels, pick lists, etc. can be generated automatically with this WooCommerce extension.

A dispatch label contains product information, payment method information, total cost amount, billing address, shipping address, and from address. It also contains the return address, in case, customers want to return the product.

After plugin installation and activation, a new section is available in the WordPress menu titled Invoice/Packing. You can get to this section by navigating to the Invoice/Packing > Dispatch Label from your WordPress dashboard. Select the Dispatch Label directly from the submenus or click on the Settings button from the General Settings > Documents tab to access the Dispatch Label settings window.

All the generic settings that need to be used across all the documents can be configured in the General Settings window. It contains provisions to configure the company logo, address details, RTL support, and many more. To know more about general settings configurations, refer here.
