To help you create a consistent design, any style changes you make to buttons affect most buttons on your site.

You can customize the shopping cart's display in these template families:
Alternate button colors
Depending on your template and how your site is set up, you may see an Alternate or (Overlay) tweak in the Site Styles section for your button. These options appears for buttons that display over:
- Background images, such as Index section banners
- Background areas with colors separate from the main background, such as footers or prefooters.
Use this option to help buttons stand out over these unique backgrounds. Depending on your button's style, you may also see other Alternate and (Overlay) tweaks.
