Why aren't my product images and descriptions showing up?

The Sell Downloads app is a very simple e-commerce solution for your 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.
