Troubleshooting

Q1 When I add an image to the email body, the image does not show up in the email. What is causing this issue?

Solution 1: Make sure you have selected HTML for content type in the settings.

Solution 2: The issue could be related to your server not allowing images to display in other websites.

Solution 3: If you use CDN services, then perhaps you have enabled a security features that is blocking images. For example someone had the following feature anti-bot protection enabled in cloudflare. He created this rule because his website received a lot of spam. You can read more about this solution in the following support thread.

Q2 How do I check my e-mail notifications issues?

Solution: Enable Debug mode and check the log files for a lines similar to the example below.

[03/26/2019 4:34 PM] - Notification email sent to buyer: user@example.com, From email address used: sales@example.com
[03/26/2019 4:34 PM] - Notification email sent to seller: seller@example.com, From email address used: sales@example.com

If your debug log has similar lines ‚Äď it means the plugin sends emails properly. The plugin cannot control whether the e-mails are delivered or not. You can read more about the solution in the following forum post.
