When we talk about buttons in Xola, we're talking about three things:
- The Gift button you see on your site.
- The checkout window that appears in an IFrame when the button(s) are clicked.
- Profile Picture
This image is internal and only visible within Xola.
This is the image that will appear at the top of emails sent to your customers through Xola. The size of the image uploaded will not be adjusted when it is used, so try to use an image size that would fit well at the top of email communication.

Be sure to make this something that your customers will recognize!
- Phone Number
