Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How can I add a new button?
To add a new button, press Ctrl + D ( it's ⌘ + D on a Mac computer) OR click Duplicate in the Wix app panel (see image below).
The newly pasted button will bring up the product creation panel again.
How can I delete a Buy Now button?
Note: Deleting a Buy Now button will not delete the uploaded product, it will still be available in your Products section.
To delete a Buy Now button, use one of these options:
- select the button and click Backspace (erase) on your keyboard
- select the button and click Delete or Del on your keyboard
- right-click on the button and select Delete from the list of options.
Why aren't my product images and descriptions showing up?
The Sell Downloads app is a very simple e-commerce solution for your Wix.com site, so it's only meant to display the Buy Now button and the Checkout.
The product images or description aren't meant to show up on your Wix site, you'll need to add those directly to your site with the tools offered in your site editor.
Why is my email auto-filled at the Checkout?
Your email address appears in the checkout field only to you. This is because we automatically insert the email address of the buyer (in this case, yours) if they are logged into their Sellfy account when purchasing.
Customers who don't have an account on Sellfy will see an empty entry field and they'll be able to enter their own email address there.
